Vintage service: bring and collect new memories

Good things never age. Every bowl, plate and glass we make is designed to be used and loved from generation to generation. From now on, you’ll be able to give your old Iittala and Arabia tableware a new life in our stores and discover vintage pieces from our ever-evolving in-store collection.

Vintage opens initially in selected stores in Finland and expands to other locations later.

 

Here’s how it works

Bring your used Iittala and Arabia tableware to an Iittala or Arabia store participating in Vintage service. We’ll buy it from you and resell it to new homes. We’ll evaluate and price the tableware according to the items’ condition. This means that for example, plates have one buying and one selling price.

We take in used Iittala and Arabia everyday tableware and glassware. We don’t recommend bringing us very valuable tableware or exceptional glassware, as our vintage service doesn’t take into account individual objects’ market value. We price all tableware according to a daily-changing price list.

Our vintage service is aimed at consumers who want to give their tableware a new life – not for companies or resellers. We won’t, for example, accept restaurants’ dinnerware.

Vintage tableware quality classifications

Like a new:
The product has not been used or it has no marks of use.

Used product:
The product has been in use, has some marks in it but is not too scratched.

Worn-out or broken:
Items that are broken or do not pass the quality inspection will be recycled. We do not offer compensation for these products. Ceramics will be grinded into powder, which is reused in brick production, whereas glass waste will be utilized as building insulation material.
