About Indelible Curiosities

Our Service Pledge
All orders are shipped by the next business day. Authenticity of our items is guaranteed. In the unfortunate event that an error has been made in the item's description which inaccurately describes its age, maker, and/or condition and you wish to return the item due to this error, your original purchase price, as well as the actual shipping costs for the item to be both shipped to you and returned to me will be refunded.

Returns are accepted for any reason on any items purchased. Upon receipt of the returned item in the same condition in which it was originally sent to the buyer, the buyer's purchase price will be refunded (excluding shipping); however, the buyer must pay for the return shipping. Buyer must contact me within one week of receipt and I must receive the returned item within two weeks from the date the buyer received the item. Returns must be shipped with point-by-point tracking and insurance for the full purchase price of the item.

Should you wish to purchase more than one item from our shop, we will combine your purchases into one shipment to reduce your shipping cost.

Please feel free to inquire about alternative shipping methods to reduce your costs!!! We recently discovered (thanks to a customer) Federal Express Home Delivery (Fedex Ground) which we are able to use but is not currently on option Ruby Lane allows sellers to include as a shipping option within a shop's listings. We have been surprised to find that this carrier can be far less expensive than UPS and USPS Priority. Shipping prices vary greatly between carriers even when all other variables remain the same and it is not always obvious why one is less in one circumstance and another is less in yet another circumstance. We assume it all relates to what each carrier is best able to handle. So please ask about Fedex! Unfortunately, we cannot ship any of our items using a shipping method that does not offer point-by-point tracking.
About Us
Located in Bedford, New Hampshire, I, Colleen Brolin, am a parent of two children and have been delving in antiques for approximately 25 years. In the beginning, I was only a buyer. Now, I am thrilled to be buying as well as selling! I am passionate about the hunt for those rare and unusual pieces but also enjoy the beauty and timelessness of some of the more popular pieces. The items offered for sale by Indelible Curiosities are quite varied so there is something for everyone.

Purchasing antiques online can often be more difficult than in person and this challenge is well understood. Each listing will contain as many photographs as possible, a truly accurate description of both age and condition, and always include a bit of history to the piece whether it be about the manufacturer, the style of the period, or its former owner(s), or a combination of all three. I am always learning more about these wonderful treasures from our past and, as much of what I sell is rather unusual, discovering something new! I prefer to pass that knowledge on to potential buyers so that they may better understand and appreciate these rarities as well.

Your item(s) will be packaged extremely well using only new materials (to ensure the safety of your treasure during shipping. Being a long time online shopper I know all too well the disappointment in having an eagerly anticipated treasure arrive damaged.

This is a full-time business so please feel free to contact me anytime with questions you have and I will strive to respond as quickly as possible.

Take care,
