S.A.E. to be included in ALL Correspondence. PLEASE LET US KNOW AS SOON AS A SALE HAS BEEN MADE, EVEN IF NOT THROUGH THE LOOM EXCHANGE AS IT IS FRUSTRATING FOR CUSTOMERS TO RING AND FIND AN ITEM HAS BEEN SOLD BUT IS STILL LISTED ON THE CATALOGUE.
Commission: We ask for a commission ONLY if a sale is made. For items under £150 the commission is £15.00, for items over £150 the commission is 10% to a maximum of £100 (for items sold at £1000 and over) and this is all done on trust. Your advert will remain in the catalogue until we hear from you that the equipment is sold. (Address at bottom of the page.) Don't forget to deduct your original £5 registration fee when sending commission. Cheques made out to The Loom Exchange. Anyone interested in your equipment will contact you direct and details about transport etc. are between the seller and the buyer.
Postage & Packing: Wheels and Looms don't travel very well with carriers, I recommend personal collection. Second hand looms are so much cheaper than new ones so that it is worth the travelling! N.B. PLEASE CHECK ITEMS AS SOON AS YOU RECEIVE THEM. - WE CANNOT REFUND UNLESS UNSATISFACTORY ITEMS ARE RETURNED WITHIN A WEEK OF POSTAGE.
Wanted Advertisements: To place a Wanted Advert. Please send £5 (cheques made out to The Loom Exchange) and a s.a.e. with a written description of the item you are looking for. It will remain on the catalogue and website for three months.
To Visit: Sorry, visits strictly by appointment only.
