Terms & Conditions
Pricing and Product Description
We have taken care to provide accurate product images and descriptions for each product for sale on the site. However, due to a number of different factors such as Internet browsers, monitor colour contrasts etc. we cannot be held responsible or liable for any differences in colour. Measurements given are approximate and we recommend you contact us for further, more accurate measurements if exact size is a particular issue.
Product Finishes and Quality Checks
We make every effort to accurately describe our products on our website. If an item is described as distressed, shabby, rustic, aged or antique you should expect to see finishes such as, uneven paint, paint chips, crackles, scrapes, and or the original surface pulling through. Many of our items are handmade and hand-finished, so they may have small defects and blemishes, that in our opinion gives each item, its own individual character. It is also natural and to be expected that an item will show evidence of its manufacturing process (including bubbles and ripples in glass), these are not considered to be defects. All items are quality checked prior to packing, and are only sent if we consider them to be in their best possible condition.
