Terms & Conditions
SALE OF GOODS
These terms detail the agreement between you (the buyer) and Saltmill Vintage (the vendor) for the sale of goods.
Please ensure that you are satisfied with the terms and the item before proceeding with a purchase, as by agreeing to buy you are entering into a legal and binding contract.
We may accept or decline this contract at our discretion.
The terms will become binding to both buyer and vendor upon confirmation of purchase.
You may cancel your order in accordance with your rights under UK law.
We reserve the right to make amendments as and when it is deemed necessary and you will be subject to the terms in force at the time of making your purchase.
We will endeavour to describe the goods as fully and accurately as possible and to the best of our knowledge and belief.
This will include any notable defects or features.
Our items are mostly vintage or antique and as such signs of wear and tear are inherent owing to their age and usage. These form the nature and appearance of antique/vintage pieces.
By agreeing to purchase the goods you are acknowledging the aged and worn nature of the items we are selling.
A woodworm treatment is applied to all our rustic wooden items when we receive them, however, we do recommend that for your own piece of mind you use a spray on the item yourself also.
We will endeavour to pack all goods safely and securely for you to receive them in good condition although we cannot be held responsible for any damage caused by any courier or other third party whilst in transit.
We will not be liable for any defects in the goods brought about by wear and tear, willful damage, accident and/or negligence by you or any third party.
HEALTH & SAFETY
The goods we sell are genuine, original antique/vintage items and as such were manufactured at a time when the health and safety standards of today were not in force. As such we cannot guarantee or imply any guarantee of compliance with the present health and safety standards or fitness for purpose.
All original antique/vintage products will be verified as such in the description along with an approximate date of manufacture if known.
Electrical items particularly are unlikely to meet present standards, however this does not mean they are not safe to use. We strongly recommend that any such items be inspected, tested, certified and installed by a qualified electrician and ensure that they are used on a circuit protected by a Residual Current Device (RCD) for safety.
We will not be held liable for any loss, injury or death caused by electrical goods that have not been inspected, tested, certified and
installed by a qualified electrician.
For items where we arrange delivery we will endeavour to despatch the goods within 5 working days from date of purchase.
In the main we use Parcelforce or Royal Mail, however neither of these will cover antiques, furniture or art. You will need to arrange your own insurance if you feel it is appropriate. For larger unpostable items we can arrange a courier at your cost (see shipping advice).
We are happy for you to send your own courier to pick up items at your expense, by arrangement. You are welcome to pick up in person from us in South Derbyshire by prior arrangement. These arrangements should be made by emailing Paula at
Should you not pick up your goods, once we have notified you they are ready, we reserve the right to resell or otherwise dispose of them. A reasonable period of time would be a maximum of 4 weeks. If more time is required, please contact Paula by email at to make mutually agreed arrangements.
