vintage rusty crusty collapsible shovel folding shovel fire fighter shovel woodsy logger tool rusty shovel industrial mechanical rust
Awesome old fire fighter's shovel found in the forest, abandoned by crew many years ago. Note the deep olive green paint on the handle and the rounded knob on the handle to help hold the tool when digging--keeps it from slipping out of your grip. The shovel is rusted tight to the base so will not open to working position, could probably be operated if you soaked in oil or solvent. It was operational when I found it 20+ years ago, then just tossed in the shed and forgotten. 21" long as is probably 5" longer if the shovel bit was extended. There was a time back in my 20's when I worked for the Forest Service that I put a lot of miles on one of those shovels!!
You can see it is weathered, rusted and wonderful to set beside the fireplace, next to the flower pot, against the front door.

LAY AWAY: On more expensive items you have the option to Lay Away. We require 35% down at time of lay away, and remaining cost/fees within 60 days. If payment is not made in full by 63 days or you change your mind at any point in the payment process - the item is re entered into our sales inventory and 50% of your funds are forfeited. Example: If you lay away an item for $100 plus shipping of $20, your down payment would be (at least) 1/3 of $100. or $35. Your final payment would be the $70 PLUS the $20 shipping.
If you FAIL to notify me you no longer want the item within 63 days, there will be NO MONEY refund. Bear in mind the item could well have sold during the time it was on hold for you.
Returns & exchanges
I attempt to describe the article to my best ability, but often, in the case of Vintage, a few minute mars or scratches could be overlooked.
Where clothing/shoes are involved, check measurements. Bear in mind a size 5 in the 60's is about equivalant to a size 2 now. ASK for measurements if they don't appear in the description, it is an oversight. Poor fit is not a reason for return.
All Vintage Items sold are in "as-is" condition and are not applicable for refunds.
I never knowingly misrepresent items. I take many pictures, and describe any damage to the best of my ability. If you have questions, email and ask for particulars or pictures. I am more than happy to oblige. Ask before you buy!
DAMAGED IN SHIPMENT: Notify within 24 hours. KEEP all packaging. Take photos of damaged packaging, of the protective packaging we provided with the shipment and several views of the damaged item. We have to send all that information to the USPS and need clear photos of all this information for a timely claim process. You can attach photos to the CONVO page, or contact me for my private email address so you can attach several photos. Keep all the above materials until we hear from the PO. Several times there was a delay reimbursing and we discovered the claim had been lost/misplaced (PO words). So keep the evidence of your claim if we have to resubmit.
LOST: If your package is lost you need to notify me within a day or two of the date the package should have arrived, the sooner the better. Easier to find a package if the Carrier can remember the past day or two...NOT 3 weeks ago. We send you confirmation of shipping and the PO sends progress reports (via the Email you provide with your order) on the package until the package arrives at your door.
If the Postal Carrier shows "DELIVERED" on your confirmation tracking number, then your complaint is with the Post Carrier as it disappeared between when they say they delivered it and when you noticed you hadn't received it. I insure for safe delivery, but have no control if the Carrier leaves it at someone else's house or someone steals it off your porch.
NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES: Unless blatantly misrepresented in the item description, you purchased it, it is now yours. Sizes and/or measurements are part of the item description; failure to fit is not a flaw in the merchandise and not grounds for return.
Lay Away: You may use our lay away option, 30% down. You have 60 days to pay the remaining balance. 40% refund of your deposit on lay away not redeemed within 60 days, provided you make contact PRIOR to the 60 days and let me know you are no longer interested. if you fail to contact me and notify me you no longer want the item there will be no refund. You must realize the item is not available for sale to anyone else while you have it held on lay away.
