Terms and Conditions
I will always do my best to fulfil your need and meet your expectations, but it is important to have things written down so that I both know what’s what, who should do what and when, and what will happen if something goes wrong. In these T&C’s you won’t find any complicated legal terms or long passages of unreadable text. I have no desire to trick you into something you might later regret. What I do want is what’s best for both parties, now and in the future.
So please do read them before you purchase and get in touch if there’s anything you are concerned about. None of my T& Conditions affect your statutory rights.
These Terms apply to all sales via my Website: ww.ellajenkinsdesigns.co.uk
1. PRODUCT SPECIFICATION:
Most if not all of my products for sale are genuine vintage or antique items and will be clearly described as such. It is likely their condition will reflect their age and any significant wear, markings, etc. will be highlighted. Vintage condition is not considered damage or faulty. If you want more details on any product please contact me before purchasing. By buying from Ella Jenkins Designs, you agree to accept the products as they are photographed and described. Once the product has been delivered, Ella Jenkins Designs cannot be held responsible for any deterioration or damage through usage, by the recipient. Please contact me before ordering, if you have any questions related to any product.
I reserve the right to withdraw any products from this site at any time and/or remove or edit any materials or content on this site.
All of the furniture I sell is antique or vintage. In some cases this furniture can be up to 100 + years old so please do bear in mind that it will show signs of usage and will not be in brand new condition. To me this is the charm of antique and vintage furniture – beautiful design classics. I do carry out light and sympathetic restoration on any pieces which I feel may require it and any notable wear or damage will be pointed out.
When putting items on painted and varnished surfaces I advise that you use coasters to protect the paint; whilst the surfaces have been treated with many layers of paint, varnish and oil, I cannot guarantee that accessories, crockery and cookware won’t damage the finish.
All of my upholstered furniture has been stripped, rebuilt with new foam/wadding, interlined and then recovered with brand new upholstery weight fabric. All upholstered items comply with the fire retardant regulations.
I provide approximate dimensions of furniture but access for delivery to your room of choice is your responsibility. If you need more information on particular items please contact me and I will help as much as possible.
All prices exclude delivery.
Ella Jenkins Designs accepts payment via PayPal. If you don’t have a PayPal account you can also use all major credit cards, via PayPal. I’ve chosen to do it this way to offer you the highest level of protection when making a purchase. PayPal deliver one of the most secure payment platforms in the world. After more than a decade as the leader in online payments, they’ve learned a thing or two about keeping your information safe.
Safeguarding your financial and personal information is one of PayPal’s most important priorities. That’s why they automatically encrypt all sensitive information sent between your computer and their systems, ensuring your information is kept private.
If you want to know the techy stuff…they verify that your Internet browser is running Secure Sockets Layer 3.0 (SSL) or higher. Information is protected by SSL with an encryption key length of 168 bits (the highest level commercially available). They store your personal information and ensure it is heavily guarded both physically and electronically. To further safeguard your debit and credit card numbers and your bank account details, they do not directly connect their firewall-protected servers to the internet.
All items, large or small can be collected from my Workshop in Little Bytham. I also offer a FREE delivery service within a 25 mile radius of my workshop (Postcode NG33 4RA).
Smaller items such as cushions or small footstools are posted within 3 working days via Royal Mail or Parcel Force 48 hour service.
For large items, I will arrange delivery in the UK through one of our couriers, and will quote prior to purchase if you email me your postcode and details of which item you are interested in.
If you are unable to take delivery of your goods on the confirmed delivery date, I reserve the right to charge you further for any subsequent deliveries.
If I accidentally damage goods in the course of delivery, then my liability for that damage is limited to the repair, refund or replacement of the goods or the value.
Delivery and postage prices quoted are for UK mainland delivery ONLY.
6. RETURNS AND REFUNDS:
I will accept returns of all items except those made-to-order or Vintage. Please inform me within 48 hours of delivery that you wish to return an item. They must be returned within 14 days.
