Visiting us:
You're very welcome to visit our warehouse in Ripon. If you're planning to visit us through the week - please contact us first to make an appointment as very occasionally we are all out at an exhibition, event or course etc.

Thank you for visiting our web site. We are a very unusual fair trade company bringing in hard to find affordable, products from many parts of the world for you to use in school. The vast majority are genuine artefacts made by indigenous craftspeople who have no knowledge of current UK & EU safety regulations. Obviously, we choose items which we believe are safe, and have been doing so for over 30 years, but I would like to stress that all our products are supplied as works of art and are for display purposes only. You must decide if an artefact is suitable for children to handle or not. Please place an order with us only if you accept these terms. Thank you again,

Kindest regards, Peter Wallin

Selection of artefacts all on an individual sale or return basis - free delivery/collection.

You are welcome to use Starbeck's unique nationwide approval box service. Choose from a wide selection of subject boxes and we will send you a wide selection of affordable artefacts for you to look at. Wherever possible, we will include examples of carvings, masks, pottery, music, textiles, basketware, religion, jewellery, clothes etc. You can keep the boxes for up to eight working days, leaving you time to examine and choose the individual artefacts you wish to keep from each box. The choice is entirely yours - you pick from each box and the rest is returned to us. Once our carrier has collected the boxes, we will then invoice you for any items that you have kept. This service is for UK, Ireland, France, Luxembourg, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany & Denmark. Please enquire for other areas.  
There is no delivery/collection charge and no minimum order - you can take from each box as many or as few artefacts as you wish.
(This service is only available to schools).

NB We reserve the right to decline from sending boxes at our discretion.
The Starbeck Approval Box system is unique and outstanding. Don't take our word for it - read here some of your colleagues' comments.
