I will ship the majority of items First class through the USPS. If you would like to upgrade your shipping, please feel free to. I have found that both will take about the same amount of shipping time. Items are well packaged and SHOULD arrive to you in the same condition they were sent. However, I have no control over the gorillas at the Post Office so, you may wish to add insurance to your shipping. That being said, once an item leaves my hands, it is out of my control. I cannot make it get to you any quicker, find a lost package or fix something broken. Again, that's what insurance is for!
INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES: I love my International customers! I will do whatever I need to do on my end to try to insure a safe delivery to you. I have no control over the International Shipping Gorillas. Sometimes they don't play nice! So, please know once a package leaves my hands, it's out of my control. I would strongly encourage purchasing insurance for pricier items. Any item over $100 US will require insurance AND will be shipped International Priority Mail.
Now onto tariffs, customs and import fees. Any charges incurred in shipping and importing are the responsibility of the buyer. It is up to you to know the policies of country. Please know that I will not misrepresent anything on a customs form. I am not responsible for item lost, stolen or held by customs. If the item is important to you, please but insurance.
I will treat your purhase with special care while it is in my posession. Once it leaves my hands I am no longer responsible for how it us handled.
I will do my best to ship an item within 24 hours of a purchase. I do not mail on Sunday or any day the Post office is closed, or during a hurricane, tornado, flood, natural disaster or blizzard ( or wicked bad snow storm)
I cannot be responsible for any of the above delaying your package. I live in New England... A bad snow storm or bad weather CAN delay your package.
As with any time you shop, prompt payment is necessary. Please know I will not ship any item until payment is received. If payment is not received within 3 days, I will cancel the order.
Death and taxes are 2 of life's guarantees. Yes, taxes will be applied where applicable in Connecticut.
I accept payment through both Etsy and PayPal.
Returns & exchanges
I do not accept returns. Please make sure the item will fit and you check the overall size and color. One thing I suggest is to draw it out on a piece of paper with the dimensions I have provided. It will give you a better idea!
Buyers remorse happens. Please make sure you like what you are buying, can afford it and are 100% Positive you want it!
If something arrives damaged via the gorillas at the post office, I will require a photo of the damage. Remember, these are vintage items. The olde they are, the more fragile they are. My goal is to insure, to the best if my ability, that the item gets to you the way it left my hands.
If you have any questions, PLEASE ask! I can't read your mind. I'm pretty friendly and have not bitten anybody's head off .... Yet!
