The prices I charge for shipping is to cover the costs for packaging and mailing the items, ie shipping and handling. International shipping is more costly in more ways than one, as it is more time consuming. USPS (the carrier I ship with) does not allow me to print postage from my computer for international packages, so mailing those packages always involves me waiting in line at the post office which usually takes a long time. As well, there are customs forms to fill out which also involves more time. Being that this is a business and everyone's time is valuable the shipping charges sometimes reflect that, though more often then not, I loose money on shipping whether Internationally or within the US.
Within the continental United States I usually ship via Priority Mail and always with delivery confirmation. I will ship UPS on occasion and at your request, as well. I will add insurance and upgrade to express shipping for the appropriate additional fees, but please converse with me in advance if any of these things are what you would like.
Payment is expected withing 24 hours of purchase, though if you let me know in advance if you need an extension on time.

The vintage items sold here have all lived with other people and in other places therefore, sometimes they may have some residual injuries as a result. All vintage items are sold as-is. I try to represent items as accurately as possible, and go over each piece carefully but there could be something I unintentionally miss. The only time I will accept a return on a vintage item will be in that case. Please ask questions prior to purchase, I will gladly answer any you may have.
I am very willing to do custom orders, wholesale and consignment, please contact me if you are interested.
