Hence Alice's Attic Antiques. We specialize in antique & vintage dinnerware, home decor, silver, serving pieces etc. Items you would use when your hosting a dinner or other get together. We have replacement pieces also, so you can complete that set of china you got from your grandmother and one of the cups is broken. There are two of us here, Jason & Michael.
He could be at a yard sale and see a glass vase, look at the pattern and the bottom and give a rough year and maker for items, to me its a clear vase. However I have been in retail management since I was 18, so my######xA0;expertise is in all the mechanics of running the store. We are also an Eco-Friendly Store! Our packing materials are all obtained from a friend of ours who works for a local factory.
They just throw it all out so we worked out a deal where he bags it up and brings it over and we reuse it. Lots of foam, bubbles etc.
Basically anything bigger than the standard 12x12x12 Box. They now use weight + dimensional volume to determine cost. What does that mean for our buyers? Especially our customers that live on the west coast and southwest areas. Oversized Items we are marking with.
No, as my work schedule is a pain sometimes. But that is not set in stone. If you are interested in purchasing a larger item we can work something out. Yes , when we can, sometimes things just cannot be combined in order to ensure a safe transport from us to you.
We will play around with it and see. Parcel select can in some cases be a bit cheaper but is NOT insured and can take up to 9 days to get to its destination, thats multiple destinations and sorting, longer transit means more chance of damage.Its just that, its a larger item. Don't forget some items are just out right HEAVY.
######xA0;Thank you for understanding this, we are not a large company, we literally operate out of our house. There is always the make an offer feature to work out a deal with. My Item arrived damaged, or didn't arrive what do I do?First off you have our apologies. Its terrible, especially if its something that is hard to find.
Luckily for us since 2009 we have only had a handful of broken items. Below are the steps to follow if your item arrives damaged. That is like walking into a retail store and demanding to speak to corporate, it immediately puts up a wall, we are human and will take care of you.
Hang onto the package/item until we give the green light. We will usually need a picture of the item/package also.
I think this is random to identify flaws in their system but who knows. Once we give you the go ahead you can toss it or whatever you want. Lost packages take longer as they have to work to trace it down, speak to carrier etc.The only time we would not challenge it is if it is an error on our part. Each potential return is handled on a case by case basis.
The below applies to nearly everything we sell. The items we sell are old and most have been previously used as some point in time.
(Antique/Vintage) They may show minor signs of wear and tear from being old such as:######xA0; light scratches, minor knicks, chips,'flea bites' , ######xA0; fading (Color, maker's marks, patterns) , Gold/Silver work can faded/incomplete. Silver items do tarnish, Scuffs, minor makers defects, sometimes dust/debris can be on/in an item if we chose not to risk cleaning the item. Ceramics & Porcelain do craze this is a natural part of their life and is not damage.
Common with entire dinnerware sets, not every piece contains makers marks. We do our best to take accurate pictures however lighting and angles can slightly affect the shade of color on items.Please see listing for description, pictures and notes of any significant damage (Damage including signifigant chips, scratches, loss of plating, cracks, signifigant gold or pattern loss etc)######xA0;######xA0;if present. Thank You####x200B;####x200B;####x200B;####x200B;####x200B;####x200B;####x200B.
