Combined shipping, If you would like to purchase two or more items, please contact me so PRIOR to purchasing said items so that I can provide the discounted shipping rate for your specific cart.
Customs, taxes, fees, etc, Shipping services are provided by third-party organizations; I am not responsible for delays or mishandling during transit, nor for customs fees, taxes, or other duties. Custom and duty fees are calculated and imposed by your home country at time of receipt. They are not included in the purchase price of the item.
Processing and shipping, Processing times are clearly stated in the shipping profile. I will notify you via Etsy on the day that your item has posted. Shipping to North America takes approximately one week for small boxes; larger boxed items (which sometimes arouse the curiosity of US Customs) can take two to three weeks. The same is true for transit to Australia and most countries in Asia. For all of the aforementioned regions / countries, packages are sometimes delayed; delivery should occur with six weeks at most, unless they are held by your customs officials for additional screening. Shipping times within Europe are much faster, and items mailed within the Netherlands via PostNL or DHL normally arrive in 2-3 business days, regardless of size.
Note: Many countries experience shipping delays during the holidays. Please plan accordingly.
Packaging, All items will be packaged with care in clean and appropriate packing materials.
I prefer credit cards (via Etsy's direct checkout), but also gladly accept Paypal.. Payment must be made at checkout. I can reserve items for a maximum of two weeks.
If you have purchased an item in error, please contact me immediately to discuss the possibility of cancellation.
Returns & exchanges
Any sale made is between private individuals. As a collector myself, I strive to provide the most pertinent information about each item so that the customer is aware of the characteristics before purchase. Photos are also provided, and should be considered part of the item's description. Because the goods offered for sale are so fully documented, I do not accept returns of merchandise, nor are refunds given. Purchasing an item constitutes agreement with this policy, as well as all other policies set forth.
If you believe that an item has been misrepresented, I will be happy to speak with you about a resolution. Please make your concerns known within one week of receipt of goods.
All of the items in my shop are vintage or antique unless otherwise noted. I strive to provide accurate photos, and to list any major defects or damage. The nature of vintage goods is that they have been "preloved". Wear & tear which is commensurate with age should be expected.
Photographs are taken in natural light or studio (LED) light. Colors may appear slightly different on some computer screens, owing to the calibration of those machines.
