Lavinia Bradley Trustpilot product review 3 star rating December 1 2020

Very disappointed. Only 3 pages and was very disappointed as it was to be a special gift but I have now had to go and find something else. It did arrive in a lovely box but as the box was virtually empty even that looked a bit ridiculous. If you had made contact with me and perhaps suggested an additional paper , I would have very happily paid for an additional copy of another paper.

Poor shipping and poor customer service makes for a poor product!

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    The item that you have ordered is an original newspaper from 1957 and therefore you have received a newspaper that was printed over 60 years ago. Due to the newspaper’s history and age, unfortunately the newspaper will not be as if you had brought it today. They do become fragile the older they get, however we would have sent you the best copy that we had available. We can see that a Customer Representative has explained this information to you.

    Please accept our apologies for any inconvenienced caused.

    Kind Regards,
    The Historic Newspapers Team

Newspaper arrived wrapped in tissue paper, inside a lovely presentation box. This newspaper was bought for my father’s 88th birthday and he was delighted to be reading his usual daily newspaper from 88 years ago!
