Hello, Thank you for stopping by. 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 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. Some examples of our brands and types we specialize in that I can name off the top of my head. Brands : Fostoria, Wedgwood, Westmoreland, Woods & Son, Cambridge Glass Co, Heisey, Johnson Bros, Royal Doulton, Lenox, Nippon, Noritake, Limoges, WM Rogers Silver, etc. Periods/Types: Edwardian, Victorian, Art Deco, Mid-Century Modern, Ruby Glass, Sterling Silver anything, Carnival Glass.
Items: Cups & Saucers, Vases, Dinnerware, Flatware, Serving Pieces, Sets for Luncheon - Breakfast - Dessert, Compotes, Bowls, Trays, Platters, Teapots, Pitchers, Punchbowls, Pretty much anything breakable. 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. If someone orders 2-3 small items or 1 lagre and one small then we can. However, 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.
NOTE: International orders have different combined rules please see international tab. (not including cost of packing marterial) So to offset that, the 25 dollar place would have to be bumped up to 37 dollars to offset all the costs. Thank you for understanding this, we are not a large company, we literally operate out of our house.My Item arrived damaged, or didn't arrive what do I do? Please See Customer Service Tab.
Almost all items have the make an offer assigned to it. Our acceptance/Counter/decline is based on several criteria. We try to accept or counter most offers except in cases of low ball offers or low offers on already discounted merchandise.
When submitting an offer it is important to note that. The offer you submit is for the item(s) only. We look at the price offered and the deciding factors thats it.
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) None of them are in "Mint/Perfect" Condition. If a listing says no damage that does not include Wear and Tear.
Wear and Tear: This is NOT Damage, its from being around anywhere from 20-150 years, (lets see how good you look after being used often for 50 years haha) and because many of the items were handmade and not factory made like today, such as: un-noticable knicks (you can only see/feel if your trying to find something wrong with it aka'flea bites') , fading (Color, maker's marks, patterns) , Gold/Silver work can be faded/incomplete. Ceramics & Porcelain do craze this is a natural part of their life and is not damage. Some items have "Production Traits" this includes bubbles in glass, a chip that was glazed over by the maker and is now smooth.
Handpainted items, Transferware can sometimes be not perfectly lined up or may have fading, smudge, etc. Common with entire dinnerware sets, not every piece contains makers marks. We do our best to take accurate pictures however lighting and angles can affect the shade of color on items.
Please see listing for description, pictures and notes of any significant damage (Damage including signifigant chips, Major scratches, loss of plating, cracks, signifigant gold or pattern loss etc) if present. All our items can be magnified to look at patterns etc. All we see is how much it would cost to send it to Kentucky thats it.
The only time we would not challenge it is if it is a clear error on our part. Each potential return is handled on a case by case basis. My item is different than what I ordered. If the item is different, example you ordered a cup and you got a plate. Our Apologies, we are human mistakes may happen when labeling a box.
My Item arrived damaged, or did not arrive. So 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. This incident does not fall under those categories.
That is like walking into a retail store and demanding to speak to a Manger, it immediately puts up a wall, we are people and will take care of you. Just keep in mind there are steps to all this. Hang onto the package/item until we give the green light. Once we give you the go ahead you can toss it or whatever you want. We did at first and then had buyers completely ignore us when we needed a picture, or for them to take it to the post office and we were left with the loss because of uncooperation.Lost packages take longer as they have to work to trace it down, speak to carrier etc. I cannot stress this enough.
