General Philosophy & Background: the items I am posting to are largely items pulled from ‘the basement’ – interesting vintage items that were too nice to trash or give to a rummage sale. I want/hope they find new homes with appreciative owners/collectors. My philosophy is somewhat ‘old school’ – to offer with low or and let the sale action happen.
While I know something about a number of things I am not an expert in books or ceramics or comic books – so you will not see them with specific condition grades. These items are used, vintage so some wear is to be expected. If I can detect any specific damage or repairs I will note them.
If you are a successful buyer and believe that the item is not as represented, let me know within 1 week, I will take it back and refund your money.
Terms & Conditions
Terms: All items guaranteed as represented or money refunded if item is returned within 7 days in the same condition.
Payment: PayPal is preferred(payment must clear before the item will be shipped). Payment is expected within 10 days. Please email me with any questions.
Shipping: I prefer using the US Postal System - Priority Mail. See item description for calculating cost. Multiple purchases may be shipped together for savings. For very small or light-weight items (or very heavy), non-priority or book-rate or similar may be investigated as alternatives. International shipping only with prior approval. ( I do not view/establish packing and shipping as my ‘profit center’. Most of the time I will ‘recycle’ boxes and packing material so that the cost of packing can be $1-3 – and the postage will be a pass thru cost (i.e., determined by the weight and distance). If an item is determined to be of great value or particularly fragile the cost of insurance can be added as well (responsibility of the purchaser).
