My name is Sophie and I have been living in Haute Savoie in France with my husband Simon and our three small children for ten years. During those years, I have been picking up pieces of Vintage French furniture which have added character to our home. I started coming across more gems than we could fit into our house, which is where Vintage French was born.
We are not a traditional antiques dealer. What we do is source affordable items that we would use in our own home which may only be a few decades old or more, but which have character and quality to make an impact in your home. I look for items that can be used as they are or which with a little re-upholstery or a lick of paint will add your character to a living space.
We are solely a web based company, however Tiggy, who manages our UK operations would be delighted to arrange with you an appointment to visit our Showroom in Milton Keynes. Simon helps me in the background with running the company, but it will be me who responds to your email requests and who will pick up the phone to answer your inquiries.
To simplify pricing, we have INCLUDED delivery costs within the UK in our listed price. If you would like to pick up your purchase from Milton Keynes we would be happy to reduce the price accordingly, if you require delivery to another country or if you are making multiple purchases at the same time, please contact me for an alternative delivery price. Delivery will either be by parcel courier, or for the larger items we will arrange to have the items brought by van directly to your home.

By Appointment Letchworth House,
VINTAGE FRENCH to provide own terms and conditons. Consumer Contracts Regulations apply.
HOARDE VINTAGE ADVICE:
It is the individual Dealers responsibility to make themselves aware of what the Distance Selling Regulation rules contain; these regulations are open to change, may vary and are detailed, so you may wish to familiiarise yourself with such via the many websites available to you on this subject.
Contract of purchase is between the Client and the Seller, not the The Hoarde, we are just the introductory agent. Your rights include, but are not limited to the below. You must check with each individual Seller what their own terms and conditions are and what their own purchase and returns policy include. The Hoarde is not responsible for the description, condition or attribution of an item as we do not have sight of any item and do not have physical ownership of any item, but we do endeavour to only allow professional and experienced dealers onto our website. We do not collect payment or hold such unless specifically agreed prior to purchase and then only as Agent do we hold funds, which are held by the The Hoarde until both parties have confirmed such can be released. If such funds are held and an item is returned, release back to the client of such funds, will be subject to the Seller confirming the item has been returned according to their returns policy. Items are not released to the Buyer until the agreed payment is received by The Hoarde. The Hoarde is not responsible for any related bank charges, transfer fees, currency fluctuations or otherwise. For more details on this facility, please contact owner Jane Walton at [email protected]
You have the right to return items purchased via the internet up to 14 days following receipt of the item to the specified delivery address. If you collect an item in person or arrange your own delivery, then this term starts immediately you or your carrier collects the item (this is to avoid your own carrier sitting on the item for a long time before delivering it).
WHAT WE RECOMMEND:
Always ask for an invoice from the Seller. On the invoice you should have the date of the item, any provenance, full description, including any restoration or damage. It should state terms of payment and delivery and returns. It should also show the business name, business address, contact numbers, email address and VAT number if applicable.
You should ask for confirmation of your purchase by email so that you have written proof of the agreed price, any additional charges, eg delivery and if you are having the item delivered, ask how and who will be undertaking it and what the Sellers return policy is.
Ask for email confirmation of what your responsibilities are should you wish to return an item, including re-packing, how you must confirm your desire to return the item, eg email or by telephone and be clear on the Seller's return policy.
The prices indicated for items on this site are correct at the time the item is listed, barring any error by the Seller. However, the Euro and Dollar prices shown are for indication only and may vary as rates fluctuate and you may incur your own bank charges when making payment from abroad.
If a Member is based in Europe, you may need to confirm with them their specific purchase and returns policies. However Distance Selling Regulations apply througout Europe as far as The Hoarde is aware.
Please do not be concerned about the above statements. They are there to help and protect both parties and should help to avoid any disputes by making things clear. The owner of this site, Jane Walton, is always happy to help and assist where possible and clients are very welcome to contact Jane should they need advice or assistance. Being a dealer herself for 16 years, she knows that most dealers are good, hardworking and professional people who understand the rules and how to be polite and helpful to clients at all times. They can help you obtain shipping or transport quotes for example. Never be worried about speaking to a Dealer and asking as many questions as you need to about an item, they wil be happy to help you. Please do remember though, that they will always be more receptive to clients who show them the same respect.
For the avoidance of doubt 'Dealer' and 'Member' are the same.
