Item details

Over the past several decades this word has been used to the point that it is no longer an accurate adjective and has been depleted of all its meaning. As shown by the pictures, it is in very poor condition and has little to no monetary value other than for scrap. Restoration to its original state is possible but due to its continual over use is not probable. Ownership of this word will be transferred by paper but due to its poor condition it may not survive the transfer. This currently is the only adjective I am selling at this time but I have several others that due to the same over use are rapidly deteriorating and will more than likely need to be pulled from service as well.
Disclaimer: This is only a satire on the over use of this adjective (mainly by listings on other sites). It is not intended to offend or imply anything of anyone. I am as guilty as anyone for its demise. Was just having a little fun on a rainy Saturday. Thanks for playing along…..

Please stipulate if insurance and tracking are desired prior to payment. Cost will be added to shipping. Express shipping is available upon request. For larger items that would freight shipping, creating or palletizing is available for an additional charge but transportation is the buyer’s responsibility. We will load customer’s carrier and will provide photos of how the item was packaged and loaded. Local pick up is also an option with prior coordination. It is my goal that all items shipped are package to prevent damage in transit. You can expect to receive your order in the same condition as it left.
Buyer is reponceable for all state taxes, customs charges or trarrif's on overseas shipments.


All items must be paid for prior to shipping. At this time PayPal is the only accepted method for payment. This includes any additional insurance, tracking, packaging/creating (on large items that must go freight) as well as shipping.

Returns & exchanges

In the event that damage due to shipping occurs, every effort will be made to rectify the situation to the buyer’s satisfaction. We do ask however to ensure you read the description of the items carefully. If any imperfections are found, they will be disclosed to the fullest to insure that you are aware and consent to purchasing them as is. Photos will also note any imperfections. However, if something is missed, every effort will be made to provide satisfaction. Should an item be lost in transit, if insured, we will work with the carrier to locate or to provide payment for loss. It is recommended that all items be insured.

Additional policies

Every attempt will be made to describe an item to the fullest and as acuratly as possable. Errors in description are not intended and will not validate a refund unless the error in someway detracts from it value. We feel that in addition to the age of the item it's story plays a big part in it's history. Since we obtain most of our items personally, we try to get as much background as possable. Although we provide this as part of the description please take it for what it is worth.
