Shipping for most domestic items will be via first class mail.
Insurance would be additional based on the final value of the package and post office rates. Once a package has entered the postal system, I cannot be held responsible for shipping time, loss, or damage. I suggest insuring packages valued at more than 20 dollars. You must contact me before paying if you'd like to insure your package so that I may send you an adjusted invoice.
I generally ship within 3 business days, but I do have other responsibilities, and it sometimes might take longer. If you are concerned about shipping time, please email and I will be sure to ship immediately.
I do combine shipping. My listings have set combined shipping rates for US orders based on the weight and size of the item. Sometimes if you order a number of items, especially very tiny items, the total shipping comes out far too high. Rest assured if the shipping cost comes out at much more than I actually pay, I will refund the difference upon shipment.
International shipping costs from the US have gone way up. I do not have combined shipping prices set for this reason. However, if you contact me with the items you're interested in purchasing I can give you a combined shipping cost and adjust the listings for you. Otherwise, if you pay full shipping on multiple items and it turns out to be excessive, I will automatically refund the excess portion.
Prompt payment is appreciated.
Returns & exchanges
I will only refund when the item has been grossly misrepresented by me or damaged due to fault of my own. If I do agree to a refund you must return the item to me within 14 days of receipt in the same condition it was in when sold. Shipping costs will not be reimbursed.
Buyer should be aware before buying that most of the items I sell are vintage or older and will have a certain amount of expected wear and visible age. I make every effort to represent my items honestly and clearly. Please read full descriptions, view photos carefully, and carefully check sizes on measuring tape. You can reduce the zoom on your screen to get a better idea of actual size.
Please note that I recycle shipping materials as much as possible. I don't think it's responsible or economical to throw out bubble wrap and peanuts and boxes when they can be used again. I make an effort to send a clean and neat package, but my priority is getting your item to you in good condition, rather than that it is in fancy packaging that looks pretty which will 9 times out of 10 just be thrown out.
I also do not include a printed invoice as I think most people just throw them out. If you would like a printed invoice included, just let me know and I will put one in.
