For your consideration, here is a neat old looking distressed picture frame with a bit of a twist, it has a blackboard mounted in it. This isn't brand new, my kids actually used it for awhile, but they took great care of it and aside from giving the blackboard a washing before I send it off, you wouldn't know it isn't new. This comes from a NON smoking home.
Overall dimensions are 11 1/8" by 13 1/8". This also works good and looks great simply displaying smaller photo's around on it...or use it for leaving notes when your kids or family is on the run, easier to find than a pc of scratch paper!
Frame has a very nice neat clean distressed look to it, you won't be disappointed! Thanks for taking a look. Be sure to check out my other listings, I have some other frames out of my collection up for sale this week, always happy to combine shipping wherever possible. If I over figure shipping, I will refund the part I do not use. Shipping quoted here is Priority, but if I can see a significant savings and still be able to insure and "track" it I'll do so. Thanks!
I will keep you posted and always provide a tracking number whether it is shipped via USPS or FedEx.
Once in awhile I list something that is larger and requires motor freight shipping or individual haulers, if you see something of mine like this you are interested in, let me know and I can show you how and where to start looking for shipping quotes. Shipping is so easy to arrange but I have learned at times the hard way, I'll help get you pointed in the right direction.
I will work with you on the payment of your choice. Paypal, money orders, personal checks work for me as well if you don't mind waiting for your check to clear....Payment expected within one week, but if you need more time we can work something out, Occasionally, I will list an item "No Paypal" in order to keep costs down.
I am occasionally asked if I do layaway. Absolutely! I've been in the position many times where I see something I love but the timing isn't always perfect. Let me know what you have in mind, we'll work it out so it works for both of us!
Returns & exchanges
In this day and age, shipping costs have risen to the point where returning items just isn't practical so in general, I do not accept returns. But, I'd like to think I make up for that. Photo's are so easy to take and send anymore, if you aren't sure about this or that, please, ask questions, ask for more photo's, that is no trouble at all, I promise!
Now, If you feel your item has been misrepresented in any way, please let me know and I will respond quick as possible. I will do everything I can to try & make it work out.....but again, 1st & foremost, check out the item you are interested in carefully, I post hi resolution photo's and I am more than happy to provide you with as many photo's as you need to help you make an informed decision. I am only able to post 5 photo's on Etsy, but through convo's I can and will send as many as you need! Many of the items I sell on Etsy are not small and since we are probably talking about old antiques, all sales are "as is" sales. I cannot stress enough if you are not familiar with what you are buying, ask tons of questions, I am also always willing to answer your questions in person as well! I may be somewhat new to Etsy, but I have been selling on Ebay for years and I would be more than happy to share my Ebay feedback with you, it is 100% positive with thousands of transactions. I wish I would have found Etsy earlier!
But I certainly understand we all have different idea's about items, but that is where the extra photo's and questions come in handy and I am only too happy to answer any and all questions to your satisfaction. I do not hide anything and I answer all questions truthfully! I humbly consider myself to be an excellent seller and more often than not if and when there is a problem, it usually arises because someone is unfamiliar with something and that can be on my end and yours. I am far from an expert, but at least when it comes to antiques, I have had 40 years of looking, watching, buying, getting familiar with what I'm buying and I will share that info with anyone, anytime, not just for personal gain! My dad once told me the only good deal was a deal where both parties walk away happy. You have my word I'll do everything in my power to make that happen.
This is not a business, more of a hobby, After 40-45 years of collecting it's just time to part with some of the neat things I have brought home through the years. On the seldom occasion when I do bring something new home, something old has to go to make some room. I collect a little bit of everything, so you never know what I'll be listing next.
