Please be certain to have a SECURE delivery site! If an item is lost/stolen after delivery the USPS usually will not consider it eligible for insurance reimbursement. Aunt Variea's Attic will not cover the loss either, as I have no control over shipping other than the address that you provide.
I WILL SHIP INTERNATIONAL! Provide your complete mailing address so that I can determine shipping for your location.
The package you receive may utilize previously used packaging supplies. I do this for several reasons:
It is environmentally friendly to reuse products if they are clean and appropriate. I purchase items with recycled content as often as possible
Some items are an unusual size and finding suitable boxes for shipping is difficult or simply not possible in my area
Packaging materials are expensive!!! I absorb as much of this cost as possible to keep prices at a minimum
Please do not consider this as unprofessional if your package is something from the grocery store... Please attribute it to a very small business owner trying to keep her expenses and YOURS as low as possible, after all EVERYONE loves a bargain!
Returns & exchanges
Please be certain to provide a secure location for delivery! The USPS will generally NOT reimburse insured items that show as "delivered" that have become missing/stolen. Aunt Variea's Attic also, will not be responsible for losses after delivery as I have no control over shipping other than to use a reliable service and to verify that the address you provide is accurate.
Regarding clothing and soft items: I sell items that are in clean condition and I will not knowingly market any item with odors, HOWEVER, some people are more sensitive to odors than others; I will not accept a return on an item due to odors.
Information provided in item descriptions regarding facts, dates and history are determined using the most reliable sources available at the time of search. Additional sources are obtained for validation/verification as well. I try to be as accurate as possible and provide you with a bit of information on the item you are looking at.
