I will ship purchases within 2 business days of payment. Sometimes sooner, it depends on the day and time you make your purchase. Shipments are sent by way of USPS or FedEx. I will send an email to you to confirm your orders shipment. Cost of shipping includes shipping, handling and tracking unless noted. Unfortunately, I cannot be responsible for items lost or damaged in the mail. The items in my shop are vintage items and cannot be easily replaced, Items that are light weight and ship by First Class Mail may not include insurance. If you DO want your item insured for DAMAGE OR LOSS, please advise before purchasing and I will alter the postage rate. The insurance is a small price to pay to insure against loss. Effective April 24,2017, items priced under $5.95 will not be insured unless specifically requested before purchase-charge 80 cents.
Please remember tracking and insurance is not available when shipping out of the US. If lost or damaged in the mail, I cannot be responsible for replacement of the item. This may sound harsh, but without a control such as tracking and insurance, once something has left possession of the USPS,I no longer am able to know where it is or what happened to it. I, therefore, cannot refund or replace a damaged or lost item going out of the US.
I ship to the address you have provided on Paypal or Etsy - please make sure you have provided the correct address where you want your purchases to be sent to. If your order is returned for an incorrect address, I can re-ship after collecting the additional postage or refund the order. (revised 6/4/2015)
I can ship Internationally upon request. Please send a "Convo" for a quote. INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE READ:
Please be aware your country may charge additional customs duty and/or import taxes.
Please also be aware that as the seller I do not pay for any applicable duty, value added taxes (VAT) or import consumption taxes charged to you by your country.
The recipient of the merchandise will be required to pay the duty or VAT upon delivery. Due to import duty valuation adjustments and currency valuations, I am unable to provide an estimate for duty or VAT.
I will not put false information on Customs Forms so please do not ask.
Items will ship in USPS provided boxes, padded envelopes or boxes previously used. I often use recycled packaging materials.
I accept Paypal and credit card purchases through Etsy. All payments are to be made in US dollars. Payment is due at the time of purchase. I accept check or money order payment but the item will not ship until received and deposited to my bank. Please read the following fine print: Florida residents will be charged Florida State sales tax based on the tax rate for the county where the item is being shipped...sorry, but the governor says I have to do it.
