Terms and Conditions and Shipping Information

Safety:

Items sold in the "New Old Jokes" section have their relevant age requirements and safety information in their descriptions and on the packaging. Please follow any guidance given. 

Vintage, used and antique items found in the "Old Old Jokes" section are sold as collectables strictly for adults only. They are not toys and should not be handled by children as they will not meet current safety regulations. Use by adults of any of these jokes is entirely at their own risk. Itching and sneezing powders and all other chemical items in these sections are not to be used on humans or animals under any circumstances and are sold as collectable display items only.

Shipping:

 

UK:

FREE Royal Mail 2nd Class postage on all orders over £30.

All other postage calculated by weight at checkout starting from just £3.35.

Worldwide:

Postage options for your region are calculated at checkout.

We do not collect import taxes at checkout, all parcels are posted DDU (Delivered Duty Unpaid). If you would like to pay your duty upfront please see if the product is available on our Etsy shop here, or let us know your order and we will send you an Etsy invoice for this.

Due to Etsy fees, this invoice will include a charge of 15% on the product total for orders over £25 or 20% for orders under £25.

 

Some products, particularly chemical items and items containing percussion caps, may be illegal to import into your country and may be held at your customs. Please check your local laws before ordering. We are not responsible for any costs or delays applied by customs agencies.

Occasionally, on unusually heavy or large orders, postage costs vary from the automatic quote given. On these very rare occasions, a manual quote will be given and the purchaser can choose to proceed with the purchase or cancel the order and receive a full refund.

Delivery Times:

All orders with untracked postage made before midday on a weekday (excluding bank holidays) will be posted on that day. Orders made after midday will be posted the next working day.

 

Tracked services made before midday are posted the following working day (as these need to be collected from us). Tracked orders made after midday are typically posted the following working day but may be posted the working day after that.

Occasionally we will suspend same day dispatch for a short period, when this happens it will be clearly displayed on the checkout page before you order with the current next dispatch day displayed. 

 

After posting, these are the delivery aim times of the services we offer:

UK:

Royal Mail 1st Class has a delivery aim of 1 working day.

Royal Mail 2nd Class has a delivery aim of 2-3 working days.

Royal Mail Signed For 1st Class has a delivery aim of 1 working day (though we cannot dispatch tracked services on the same day, see above).

 ​

Returns:

If a new item is faulty, arrives damaged or there is a mistake with your order, please inform us as soon as possible via the contact page. We will arrange a replacement or refund (your choice when stocks allow) and cover any costs in returning the items if necessary.

Vintage items can be returned for refund or replacement if they arrive damaged but, when they are not sold as working, they cannot be returned as faulty.

We do not accept returns for any goods which do not meet the above criteria.
