The Smoke-Free/Pet-Free Question:
My home is smokefree, but I do have pets, who frequently inspect my packing process! Unless otherwise noted, all my items come from auctions, estate sales, flea markets, etc. and I do not know if they have always been in a smokefree environment.
I examine items carefully and list honestly. If you find any flaws that were not mentioned in listing, please just let me know and I will be happy to work with you about a return/refund. (Buyer returns the item, carefully packed, and receives refund of original Paypal payment upon receipt by seller.) I am happy when YOU are happy.
I ♥ repeat customers, and am delighted to combine shipping on multiple purchases. Please visit my store for more wonderful retro finds!
Thank you, and wishing you a winning bid!
