About Trinity Antiques
Our Service Pledge******June 2020 COVID -19 shop update - at the present time our English Ruby Lane shop is open and shipping in a limited capacity only as we are working with reduced staff. We are accepting RESERVE orders only, fulfilling and shipping once per week in 'date received' order. Please be patient as we are trying to continue to trade against many odds, in a very fluid Global situation.
Our shop is open for taking RESERVED orders with payment due when we are ready to ship your item. In order to limit staff movement during the Covid-19 situation, we are shipping just once per week on a Thursday. As a small family business which has been hugely impacted by the dramatic loss of trade, we wholeheartedly encourage you to place a RESERVE purchase order, but at the payment section DO NOT pay, please simply click 'other traditional payment'. This will secure your item, allowing you to conveniently complete your purchase when we contact you again shortly, when we are ready to ship your item.
Your purchase will ship via Royal Mail International Tracked & Signed For service who hand over to your own countries postal service. This service used to deliver within an 8-14 day delivery window. However, International delivery delays are now likely as Postal services respond to the new measures that they have set in place as part of their response to the pandemic. Please view your own postal service website for details.
INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS please expect a delivery delay - any such delay is beyond our control, please ONLY order if you can accept that there may be LONG delays in your trackable item reaching its international destination.
We thank you for your continued support and patience during these very difficult times.
Many thanks for your visit today, Victoria, and family
