We will be on vacation between Saturday Oct 26th and Sunday Nov 10th. If you see anything that you wish to purchase during this time frame, go ahead and buy it. BUT, PLEASE DO NOT PAY For the item until my return. I do not want you to be disappointed that you paid for the item and it did not arrive when you expected it....because we weren't here to ship.
AVAILABILITY OF ITEM:
The items I list are in stock. However, things do happen. An item gets dropped when moving it; upon packaging it, it seems to be a little different than first described; I put it in another location and forgot to make a note of it, etc. Life happens! I will ALWAYS double check that the item that I have sold you is in the condition that was stated and that it is available for shipment. In the event that it is not, you will be notified as soon as possible. If you have already paid for the item, an immediate refund will be provided.
DESCRIPTIONS AND/OR CONDITION:
The items listed for sale on this web site are considered in "Good to Excellent" condition unless otherwise noted. Because these items have been in use, it is normal to see some wear. This would include utensil marks on the surface and very slight scratches either from stacking or from cutting of food. Some wear of the trim would be normal. It is unrealistic and unreasonable to expect a vintage item to show not wear at all. Collectors of antique/vintage items are often willing to live with a few minor flaws in order to obtain qualities lacking in modern mass-produced goods, qualities like exquisite hand painting. Any piece with less than 80% of it's trim intact will either not be sold or will be specifically noted.
Shopping on the net is similar to shopping from a catalog....there is no way for you to physically pick the item up and inspect it. Because of this, we make every effort to accurately describe each and every item we have for sale. There will always be a picture of the item. If more pictures are available, you will see a link to the other pictures. If for any reason you feel that you would like more information please feel free to email us with your questions.
Breakable items are typically double boxed. Because of this, shipping may be a little higher than you think it should be. I am sure that you want your item safe and sound rather than in pieces and as a result a few pennies more won't matter.
Packages weighing 3 pounds or less are generally shipped through the US Postal System. Packages of more than 3 pounds are generally shipped through FEDEX (except for Alaska and Hawaii). If you have special shipping requirements, please email me prior to bidding. It is possible that the shipping price might be different than quoted.
ALSO - I DO SELL INTERNATIONALLY. All I ask is that you contact me first so I can provide you with a shipping quote.
***IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING SHIPPING***
I am employed full time. Because of this I ship ONLY on Mondays. Saturdays and Sundays are reserved for pulling your item from inventory and packaging it for shipment.
We have a "No Return" policy. However, there is always an exception to the rule. The only exception is if the item we sold you is not as described. You must contact us by email within 24 hours of confirmed receipt of the item. The item must be returned immediately.
The item must be in its original packaging and in exactly the same condition it was in when shipped with our merchandise sticker still attached.
The returned item must be insured for the full amount. Until I receive the item, you are liable for the cost.
Due to Customs fees, I do not accept returns on International purchases. Therefore, the sale is complete when the purchased items are delivered to customer, customer's agent, or Customs Agency. Delivery itself finalizes the sale.
If these conditions are not met, the return will not be accepted.
I do not refund shipping costs or credit card fees. They will be deducted from the total amount of your refund.
A 10% restocking fee will be charged on any accepted return over $150.
Refunds are issued immediately upon receipt of an accepted return in good condition.
Every precaution is taken to make sure that your item arrives at its destination safe and sound. Occasionally breakage does occur. If this happens, it is very important that you contact us by email immediately so that we may notify the shipping company and start the claims process. If the package you receive appears to be damaged in any way and the delivery person is still there, notify them on the spot! It usually takes a day or so for the shippers to let us know how they are going to cover the damaged merchandise. Once we know that the claim is valid and they will reimburse us for the loss, we ask that they send us the check and we will pay you directly for your loss. In cases where the shipment was made through the US Postal Service, we will fill out our portion of the claim for, attach the insurance receipt and mail the for to you to file from your end.
Occasionally I sell electrical items. These are generally used, unless noted, and as a result, are sold "as-is". The buyer accepts responsibilty regarding the proper use of these items. If I feel that the item offers an unusual risk, I will clip the cord and it will be the buyers responsiblity to seek rewiring.
