All items are shipped by the US Postal Service- I try to use the most reasonable rate for you but I also want to ship your items safely and well protected. I don't use other shipping services since USPS is the most economical and dependable for me. I cannot accommodate requests for express shipments or guarantee delivery dates for you. You will receive a USPS tracking/confirmation number at time of shipment. Items shipped by USPS Priority Mail include insurance, USPS First class shipments do not include insurance. Any issues regarding shipping upgrades, insurance, extra services need to be taken care of before an item is purchased and paid for, thanks.
Due to inconsistent international delivery dates and communication problems, I have discontinued international shipping in general on items over 8 ounces. If there is a piece that you are interested in and it requires out of US shipping, please contact me to see if I can accommodate you as I do ship elsewhere on occasion if the item is small and you don't require immediate delivery.
Dealing in antiques and vintage items is a full time profession for me. I guarantee my merchandise to be as represented and I'm happy to answer any questions you might have about a piece. Offers on my items are not welcome as I try to keep my prices reasonable from the start, I don't haggle over prices and I don't do lay away sales, it's not practical for my business.
Payments are due at time of purchase. I accept both Etsy Direct Checkout and Paypal services. I do not accept checks or money orders. I generally ship items within 24 hours of purchase; if you wish to cancel a sale please do so before you receive your shipment notification so that you won't need to pay the return shipping charges.
