I've listed them below. You can choose any combination of pieces or a single one--just use the drop-down menu to make your selection. Note: You may be overcharged for shipping. I will combine your purchases into one box and any excess shipping charges will be refunded to you. OR--just send me your zip code prior to purchase and I'll create a special listing just for you.
TURTLE PULLS -- The back plate and the bale are etched and there appears to be an animal. I think they resemble turtles but they may be bats or some type of bird--please see photos. The center of plate has the double happiness symbol. All are marked "Hong Kong" on the back. The 4" pull has four holes for screws, the 3" pull has six (4 small around center and 1 larger top and bottom, the 2" pull has six small ones. No screws included.
PLAIN PULLS -- These are similar to the "turtle" pulls but the back plate and the bale are not etched. The center of plate has the double happiness symbol. No marks. Three screw holes around edge of back plate--no screws included.
COIN PULLS -- The back plate resembles an old Chinese coin. The outer edge of the back plate and the bale are smooth. Marked on back side of each with the number "A6379". The plates do not have any visible holes--instead they are attached using screws to the reverse side of the bales. Each side of the bale is threaded--no screws included.
************************************************ SMALL LANTERN STYLE PULLS--These have a small 1" round back plate with a 1-1/4" dangling pull; total length is 1-3/4". Three holes in back plate. No screws included.
1-3/4" Lantern Pulls (starting quantity - 4; current quantity remaining - 0 -- all of these pulls have been sold)
Condition: They have been used and have a nice patina--not bright and shiny but the mellow kind, that comes with age. No polishing has been done. None of the pulls have screws. If you have any questions at all, just ask. Also I have lots of photos if you need to see specific areas.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS: We LOVE to ship internationally. If you are not in the US and are seriously interested in one of our items, please contact us.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING METHOD: Unless an item is very large or weighs more than 4 pounds, we will ship via USPS First Class International. Large or heavy items will be sent via USPS Priority International which can be very expensive. IF you live in one of the few countries not covered by U-Pic Insurance, such as Russia, Paraguay, etc., (see U-Pic website for full list), we will contact you. Shipments to those countries can only be sent via USPS Priority International so that they can be insured. You will be given the option of paying additional for Priority or canceling your purchase.
IMPORT CUSTOMS FEES, DUTIES, TAXES, TARIFFS: Please be aware that some countries may have restrictions on what items can be imported. Also note that your home country may charge additional customs fees/taxes/or other amounts. All of those fees are the buyer's responsibility. If you are concerned about possible fees, taxes, tariffs, please check with your Customs office and/or Postal Service before purchasing. If you need help calculating the possible import duties and taxes, here is a link that may help: www.dutycalculator.com/new-import-duty-and-tax-calculation/
Since all of my items are vintage, I will always mark the contents as "used" on the customs slip which should help a little with fees. What I cannot do is undervalue an item on the customs form or mark it as a gift because this is against US and international laws.
UK CUSTOMERS: Since the Royal Mail is becoming much more vigilant in collecting VAT on purchases made through the mail, please be prepared for the possibility of paying VAT plus a Royal Mail fee upon receipt. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- GENERAL SHIPPING INFORMATION
SHIPPING METHOD We try to use the cheapest method. The following is our current criteria for choosing the shipment method :
♦ Up to 13 oz.--USPS First Class
♦13 oz. to 5 lbs., package less than 1 cubic foot -- USPS Priority Mail (for heavier items, we use flat rate boxes IF the purchase and packing material will fit in one of the USPS's flat rate boxes)
♦More than 5 lbs. or over 1 cu. ft. or if a certain delivery date required -- We will compare rates at USPS, FedEx and UPS. Usually the item will be sent via USPS Parcel Post. Books are sent via Media Mail.
Note: If you have a shipping preference, please contact us.
ORDERS OF MORE THAN ONE ITEM If you order more than one item, we will always attempt to send in one package. Often, when more than one item is ordered, the amount you will be charged for shipping will be too high. I will refund any excess shipping amount over $1.
TIMEFRAMES We will ship your order within 1 day after receipt of payment. If you need it expedited, please contact us! If an item you ordered has not been received, contact us!
SHIPPING ADDRESS We will send to the address that you used in PayPal unless you request that it be shipped to a different address. Maybe this is a gift that you would like us to ship directly to someone for you. We would be very happy to save you a step by gift wrapping it and including a little gift card from you. On our shop’s home page, select “Contact” to send us a message. In your request, tell us the shipping address, the wording, signature, etc. that you want on the gift card.
INSURANCE We automatically insure all items $50 and over. The insurance amount is included in the posted shipping charges. Insurance is at the buyer's discretion for all other purchases. We do recommend insurance for breakable items but don't insist on it. However, without insurance, you have no protection if an item is damaged during shipping. If you do decide to have an item under $50 insured, please contact us and we will correct your invoice.
SIGNATURE CONFIRMATION We automatically ask for signature confirmation on all items $100 and over. This is to protect both the buyer and seller.
RUSH If you need an order expedited, please let us know!
We accept Direct Payment via Etsy--just sign up and use your credit card during check out.
We also accept PayPal. If you want to use PayPal but don't have an account, you can either open one during checkout OR you can use your credit or debit card through PayPal. Either way, select PayPal as your method of payment. You will then be instructed to log on to your account.
Money Order Policy--The only type of money order that we accept is a Post Office money order. Contact me and I will determine the exact amount of the item plus shipping. You will need to pick up a money order at the Post Office in that amount and mail it to me. I'll hold the item for you and will ask the Post Office to cash the money order at the same time as I mail the package to you.
If you don‘t have an account, you can sign up by clicking on the words “Don’t Have a PayPal Account?” or you can scroll down to select the credit/debit card (Visa, AmEx, MC) via PayPal option. If you choose this method, PayPal will send a payment (referred to as an e-check) from your bank/card directly to our account. We will not see any of your personal information.
When you pay via e-check, your item will be mailed once the payment has been posted in the shop’s bank account, which is usually 3-5 days from the date of your purchase. If payment has not been received within 5 days, however, it will be assumed that you have changed your mind and the item will be re-listed.
NOTE: MISSOURI RESIDENTS ONLY--Our state laws require that we charge a 7.975% sales tax on purchases shipped to other Missouri addresses. The tax will automatically be calculated and added to the total during checkout. The sales tax only applies to the purchase price--there is no tax on shipping.
