Shipping & policies
We usually ship small items via USPS First Class Mail (if under 16 ounces) or USPS Priority Mail (16 ounces or more) for domestic shipping. In some circumstances, we may use another carrier such as FedEx.
If the USPS shipping seems high, please feel free to ask us for a FEDEX quote as etsy does not have a FedEx calculator; often it is less costly for larger items, PARTICULARLY if you are on the west coast!
Any time you see FREE shipping, we will use economy shipping like USPS First Class Mail. We will gladly upgrade for an additional charge, so just choose your desired upgrade at checkout.
If an item says "freight" or "local pickup", the shipping cost listed is NOT your actual cost. It is usually an average cost for shipping the item across the country. Contact us for a real estimate - if you are CLOSER to us in VA, it will cost less for east coast buyers.
Please allow up to 6-8 weeks for freight shipping; if you are east coast, delivery will usually occur much sooner. We use independent freight shippers frequently, so weather and illness can be factors in rare instances.
The buyer is responsible for packaging, shipping, insurance, and payment for the same. You may contact us for shipping recommendations and/or quotes- we will provide quotes or contact information for shippers with whom our customers have had success. We will gladly work with your choice of shipper and help in any way we can.
Any quote we provide will include full insurance for your item.
Please understand that freight shippers are unlike traditional carriers, in that they will not make multiple attempts to deliver your item. They have a specific route and time frame. Though they will try to accommodate your schedule, it's important that you are present to receive your item when they arrive, OR that there is a place you are ok with the shipper leaving your item if you are not there. You will be provided with their contact info and vice versa to make delivery arrangements.
If you wish to pick up, we will gladly store your item for 30 days; after 30 days, a $5 per day storage fee is assessed (contact us if you need a little more time, we can usually work it out).
Please let us know if you have any questions. We are happy to help and we always appreciate your interest.
Any import duties, taxes, etc. on international purchases are the responsibility of the buyer.
Items ship out upon full payment clearing.
Virginia customers are responsible for 5.3% sales tax on all purchases.

Virtually all of our offerings are antique or vintage items and are sold as is. All of them will show some type of age related wear and tear, and sometimes damage. None of them will be perfect or in brand new condition. We spend a lot of time writing thorough descriptions and providing quality photos - please view them carefully. We will gladly answer any questions you may have.
