I’m No Expert so if you have any Concerns or Questions please ask and I will try to answer them the best I can.
Time to commence to Christmas Shoppin!! It’s Christmas time all the time on e-bay! I’m not an expert on this stuff, so item sold as shown. See the many pictures, you are the judge.
Please E-Mail questions early as possible. I answer all questions between 9:00 am – 5:00 pm EDT the same day. After that it’s the next morning. If you send me a question after 5 pm EDT the same day the auction ends I most likely will not be home to answer it, I’m sorry but I work evenings elsewhere. I reserve the right to re-list or sell the item to the next highest bidder if you do not days from the end of this auction.
Risk of loss or damage is yours. You may choose insurance coverage to protect yourself. The auto-calculator does not include insurance however, I will automatically include insurance if your initial payment covers it unless you request otherwise.
I will offer combined Shipping on multiple items won, please wait for an updated invoice before paying, thank you.
Please understand that all carriers including USPS (starting June 23, 2019) will be using Dimensional Weight in determining the exact cost of the shipment if the box size is larger than 1 cubic foot. The Dim/Weight formula is Length x Width x Height / 166, if the result of this equation is larger than your package weight, I will be charged the dimensional weight. I apologize ahead of time if a light weight - larger item appears to have an inflated charge, this is not my doing and I will always try to use the smallest box and or flat rate boxes when possible. Dim. Weight will only be used on boxes greater than 12x12x12 or 1728 inches
If the estimated shipping is more than the actual shipping plus $2 for Insurance / materials, I will promptly refund your pay-pal account upon shipment. My default shipping carriers are USPS (Priority, First-Class, Media) and UPS Ground.
Please understand any shipping costs that you see are E-Bay Estimates and do not reflect the actual costs. In some instances, your cost may be cheaper! Please ask for a rate quote if you want exact shipping costs, I will be glad to help.
I have an option with UPS Ground, which may be better for larger / bulky packages, usually above 10 lbs. My UPS rate may be cheaper than shown. Just so there are no surprises, I may ship with UPS based on time and price. This will sometimes warrant a small refund for over paid shipping charges as stated above.
I apologize, but Guidelines are forcing sellers to not offer refunds on the demands of a minimum 30-day return policy. I sell Vintage and Antique items which may have some minor flaws, damage and age-related wearing. I try my best to describe every item including defects but I’m definitely no expert. There may be instances when I just miss something on your item’s description mostly due to lack of knowledge, definitely not intentional. All my items are listed “Sold As-Is” and I apologize if any item isn’t described from head to toe and every little detail isn’t captured. That’s why I would like all questions regarding condition asked early in the auction!!!
Under certain instances I will accept returns. If you’re not satisfied with the item please contact me with any issues or concerns regarding your item within 5 days of receiving it. I will always try to correct any issues with either a partial or complete refund. There may be times when I will ask you to return the item; sometimes this is not cost effective so that's why I would rather work something out with the customer. If any item incurs postal shipping damage, I will file the correct claims against the shipping service and refunds will be issued accordingly. As always, I will never leave Negative Feedback or file claims against anyone without contacting them first. I would expect the same in return from Buyer’s and Seller’s.
Foreign bidders are welcome but please understand that Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up – do not confuse them for additional shipping charges. I do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts" US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.
I list all International Shipments with the E-Bay Global Shipping Program but I can opt out at any time. Under no circumstance are you obligated to use this program, I can ship without it, just request a new invoice. The Global Shipping Hub has been known to open packages and keep what they determine is not allowed into your country; although they do issue refunds, they keep or resell the item. Please revisit your countries import regulations regarding restricted items. As always, I can ship without this Global program!!!
Please take note: International Shipping Calculations are generated by E-Bay and are often different from the actual charges. Sometimes it’s less and sometimes it’s more. (If it’s less and you don’t wait or ask for a quote before paying, I have no way of checking for a refund), the item gets shipped automatically. E-Bay does not allow me to enter a different size box on smaller items and this can cause the shipping charges to be inaccurate. Most International mailing cartons need to be at least 11” in length and 6” Wide to accommodate the USPS International Air Way Bill and Pouch. There may be an instance where the charges you see are not enough although it’s rare, it has happened. I will send you a message explaining the rate adjustment. If the charges are less than quoted by E-bay I do give refunds for the difference so please wait for an invoice.
Please send me a message letting me know that you rather ship without E-Bay Global or follow the steps below:
