What to expect when buying vintage furniture.
All of the items we sell in our barns or online are vintage or antique, and as such they may come with marks, chips and imperfections. But this is all part of the charm of vintage and antique items; you are buying into their history so each item tells its own story. Please be aware that if you are looking for perfection you may not want to buy antique items.
We try to give a fair assessment of the condition of all the pieces we sell via our website and will always mention any significant damage or mark in the description.
We strongly advise you to come and visit us to see the items you are interested in however we understand this isn’t always possible. Therefore please do look closely at all the images, descriptions and details before making your purchase, to avoid disappointment.

Top tips before buying
To avoid any disappointment please do measure and measure again the space you are planning to house your item. Also look at the doorframe, any awkward corners the item has to pass through or low ceilings etc to ensure that when it arrives, it fits perfectly into your home.
Please also note that the majority of our armoires and knockdown wardrobes are broken down for transportation so need to be assembled once in situ. We are more than happy to talk you through it over the phone.
In addition to your legal rights, we will allow you to return goods if you have changed your mind. Please return the item(s) with your receipt within 14 days and we will happily offer an exchange or credit note.
