This is an older Missouri River brand women’s breastplate kit, previously owned, but never used. I opened it just to verify contents and to determine if the hairpin is real bone or plastic, and yes, it is real bone. Beads have the weight of glass beads but instead of having cowry shells, as the instructions say, it instead has synthetic Elk teeth. I didn’t open the individual packages to verify the exact count of each item. Outside of package has been written on and shows wear, like its been packed around awhile. Today’s retail value is $150.00 purchased new.
Photo’s taken are all the same product. Colors may vary because of difference in computer monitors, the angle of the camera when photo was taken, or even the time of day that the photo was taken as we photograph in natural daylight. I have noticed that any close ups taken always come out a lighter color than photo’s taken at a distance because of reflected light. I do my best to adjust the photo’s to get the accurate colors but it sometimes isn’t possible to get it exact. So what you see on your monitor may appear slightly different in shade.
Payment: I accept Paypal payments and also payments through Etsy’s payment system.
Shipping: Normally, I am able to ship most things by way of USPS Small Flat Rate Priority Box and will be happy to combine multiple items for one shipping rate, at least however much will fit in the box. For some lightweight items, such as quilled medicine wheels, I am able to use First Class mail in a bubble wrap envelope or small box. Shipping rates are for exact shipping and I never charge any handling fees, although I do add a cost for tracking on First Class packages.
Most packages are shipped the next day after receiving payment but we do live a distance from the post office and can’t go every day so we, at least, try to ship 2 to 3 days a business week.
International shipping is by prior arrangement. Please email me to set up shipping rates to your country. Shipping is by Priority mail only as it is the best for tracking. Buyers from other countries are responsible for the taxes/customs/duties that will be charged by their respective countries. These fees are not included in the shipping fees we require, and will also not be refunded if an item is returned.
Returns: I try to picture and describe the item the best that I can. If you feel that there has been an error in the item description, please contact me immediately. Customer satisfaction is very important to me. Please read the description carefully so that we can avoid the hassle and waste of time and money for returns. If you are just totally unhappy with your purchase, we will refund your purchase price. Item must be returned in the same condition as received. Return postage is at buyer’s expense and must have tracking. We will refund full purchase price but are unable to refund the original shipping costs. Item must be post marked no later than 7 business days from the day that you receive it, as will be recorded in the tracking information
Packages will be shipped within 1 to 3 three days of payment. Usually the next day, but since I live out of town I'm sometimes not able to get to the post office right away.
Most packages are shipped using USPS small flat rate priority and includes tracking and insurance for shipments made to US addresses. Sometimes I will ship items that I feel can't be damaged in a bubble wrap mailer by way of USPS First Class Mail. First Class shipments must be 13 oz. or less and include tracking but insurance is extra at buyers request.
International shipments are by prior arrangement only, please message me before purchase and I can give you a quote on shipping cost and edit shipping to include your country. Tracking is only available to Canadian addresses. All import duties, taxes, or other fees that are charged by the receiving country are the responsibility of the buyer and are not included in shipping charges.
