It's the first time I'm buying vintage furniture online. What should I expect?

Most of our items have their own story, so they might show some wear-and-tear. Together with the sellers, we do our best to assess their condition properly and to make sure that all significant wear is recorded and described in detail.

Some items have been renovated. This prolongs their life, but doesn’t mean they look new.

Before buying, make sure you look closely at the pictures and read the item description. If you have any questions about its condition, dimensions or any other details important to you, contact us. If need be, we can also provide extra pictures.

How can I understand item condition?

Our furniture and accessories are from the past and we describe their condition today as follows:

  • - New Old Stock: item from the past that has never been used
  • - Renovated: after renovation, e.g. change of upholstery or refreshment of construction
  • - Perfect: minimal wear, e.g. small, shallow scratches; an item that has been treated well, but doesn’t look ‘as new’
  • - Good: some wear from regular use, e.g. abrasions, scratches, shallow cavities, small discolorations
  • - Worn: significant wear, e.g. corrosion, chips, deep cavities and scratches, discolorations; this item has gone through a lot, but fulfils its function and can still serve
  • - New: contemporarily manufactured to a design from, or inspired by, the past

Can I get extra information or item pictures?

Absolutely – let us know via chat or by mailing [email protected], and we’ll try to get as many details as possible.

Can I reserve an item?

As most of our items are unique, single pieces, there is no possibility for reservation. First come, first vintage! ;)

How can I pay for my purchase?

How does the delivery work?

The seller secures the item and sends it by postal service, courier or dedicated furniture courier. The carrier is provided with your contact data and will contact you if necessary to establish all delivery details. If an item doesn’t have a set delivery price, contact us for a shipping quotation.

The item turned out to be damaged or doesn't fit the description. Can I lodge a compliant?

Yes. It is necessary to examine the item in the presence of the courier and write a damage report. The lack of such a document may be the basis for your complaint being rejected by the seller. You can file a complaint through your User Panel.
