You can view your potential shipping cost prior to purchase by clicking on an item's "Shipping and Policies" tab, then adding your zip code in the box provided. Etsy automatically defaults to display the least expensive shipping cost for an item. Once you place an item in the cart, you will see the shipment method (Parcel Select, Priority Mail, etc.) and decide whether or not you want to upgrade shipping. PLEASE NOTE THAT PRIORITY MAIL PROVIDES INSURANCE COVERAGE UP TO $99. IF YOU SELECT SHIPPING OTHER THAN PRIORITY MAIL, IT IS NOT INSURED UNLESS YOU, THE BUYER, SELECTS THE OPTION TO INSURE IT.
I put the above information in all caps to stress that you will not be reimbursed for broken, damaged or lost merchandise unless you have insured it, or have chosen Priority Mail as the shipping method and then, if the item(s) have a value in excess of $99, you will need to buy additional insurance.
Please understand that I package merchandise with care, but I cannot control how the shipper handles your delicate cargo.
SHIPPING COMIC BOOKS: Comic Books ship USPS Flat Rate Box, are insured and an adult must sign for the package.

Additional return information
I do my best to give a full and accurate description, including a description of faults, and provide photos of various sides/angles of each item. If you want to see a close-up of a specific area or feature, please ask; I am happy to oblige. Please contact me with any questions you have.
Most of my items are antique or vintage so they are often NOT in perfectly new condition. Therefore items cannot be returned for faults/wear. Once you receive an item, if you feel it was not as described, message me. You will have the option of returning the item and receiving a full refund, minus the cost of shipping. RETURN SHIPPING IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER. Shipping charges are not refunded and there are no partial refunds. A full refund of the item price will be issued once it is returned. Item must be returned in the condition it was sent to you. If the item has been modified in any way, I will not be able to offer a refund.
DAMAGED ITEMS: If an item is damaged/lost in shipping, you must fully cooperate with filing a claim with the post office or shipper, and you will be refunded once the claim is finalized.
I try to describe items as accurately and truthfully as possible, including close-up photos. Phots are considered part of the description. If you have any questions about an item, please contact me. I usually respond within a few hours or less during daytime hours, CT. If you see something in a photo that is not described to your satisfaction, wish to see more photos or have any questions at all, please send me a message.
I gently dust each item. However, most cleaning is left to the buyer’s discretion. After all, one vintager may feel a spot of dirt or rust detracts from the item’s personality while another vintager believes that dirt or rust only adds to the item’s story and value. Most items are sold in "as found" condition.
Please keep in mind you are buying vintage items (used and often very old). Because of this, I cannot guarantee an item is animal-free or smoke-free.
Please contact me if you have any questions. I want you to be happy with your shopping experience at OldShedVintage. After all, repeat customers are the backbone of any business. My goal is to provide you with plenty of reasons to return to my shop again and again!
