WE ARE AN ARIZONA-BASED BUSINESS THAT DEALS IN
ANTIQUES AND FINE COLLECTIBLES.
We have been dealing in antiques for over 35 years –
first as a collector – and then selling off some to make room for new items in
our collection – and so the cycle goes. today it is no longer a “hobby”, but an
enterprise – a small enterprise – some would say a very small enterprise!
WE ACQUIRE ITEMS FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY – INDEED,
ALL OVER THE WORLD – WITHOUT EVER HAVING TO LEAVE ARIZONA. We gather up most of
the items we have for sale from local estates of people that have retired to
arizona from all over the country – some are “deceased” estates, and some are
from retirees that need to down-size to move into assisted living apartments.
we buy up multiple items – and sometimes entire collections – from estates
where the owner had not necessarily acquired any items for the last 10, 20, and
sometimes 30 years – so virtually all of our items are “vintage”, if not true
antiques. hence, the modern-made
knock-offs and fakes are not as prevalent as you might find from another
source. BUT we do get caught once it a while – we got bit at least twice this
year – ouch! when we realize it, we own
up to our mistakes – we will not intentionally misrepresent the age or origin
or condition of any item that we offer for sale – and we stand behind our
I am honored by your decision
to do business with us and I will take whatever steps I reasonably can to
accommodate your wishes.
9.1% SALES TAX COLLECTED FOR DELIVERIES TO ARIZONA
WE WANT TO EARN FIVE-STAR FEEDBACK.
If there is any area in which you feel we
have not earned 5-Star, please let us know via eBay message, right away.

happens – rarely - but it does happen.
CONCERNS WILL BE AT THE TOP OF MY LIST – GUARANTEED!!
We have NEVER had a
damage issue unresolved to the customer’s complete satisfaction
Step 1: Take a photo of the carton and the
damaged item and send it to me right away via email. Send a separate note
through the eBay messaging system describing the issue.
Step 2: Set the carton, the packing and the item
Step 3: See below for more details, but this is how easy it is to get started
. . .
WANT TO RETURN THE ITEM?
WE DO NOT ACCEPT RETURNS FOR ALL
ITEMS – MOST, but not all.
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE TO READ THE
LISTING “SHIPPING – RETURN POLICY” to determine whether returns are not
accepted for that particular item. On most items we
will gladly accept returns. If the
return is because of a serious mistake on my part, I will pay shipping both
ways, otherwise I expect the buyer to pay for shipping BOTH ways – just like you pay for your own gas and wear
& tear on your car to drive to and from the store to buy an item and then
drive to and from the store again to return an item. Think about it – WalMart may refund your
money, but they would never reimburse you for the actual costs you incurred to
both buy and to return an item. So why ask me to do that? Again
– my serious mistake – then I will pay both ways.
NOT CHARGE ANY HANDLING FEES.
IS ALWAYS INCLUDED
CARTONS & PACKING MATERIALS
INCLUDED IN THE SHIPPING COSTS ON YOUR SCREEN
We NEVER charge for time, transportation, extra accommodation,
When the buyer is responsible for all
shipping costs both ways – that includes reimbursement to the seller for all shipping costs for
the listings that offer “free shipping”. CONTACT US BEFORE RETURNING AN ITEM.
Not so that we can talk you out of returning the item, but so that we can be
prepared and, depending on the circumstances, we may be able to reduce or even
eliminate return shipping charges. PLEASE USE OUR SAME CARTON AND PACKING. It
worked well enough to get the item to you – and it will work for a return.
You MUST send it back
to us in the same condition, AND cooperate
with us in cancelling the transaction through eBay’s procedures so that they
refund the final value fees that that have assessed.
WILL NOT PAY MORE FOR RETURN POSTAGE & INSURANCE THAN WE PAID TO HAVE IT
SHIPPED TO YOU. PERIOD.
THE RETURNED ITEM
MUST ABSOLUTELY BE IN THE SAME CONDITION AS WHEN IT WAS SENT OUT BY US.
We pack assuming that the carton
will be shipped on each of its 6 sides during shipment – ‘cause you know it
will, no matter how many stickers you put on saying “This Side Up” . . .
We reserve the right to change
shipping carriers. If you need a particular
carrier, please let us know and we will gladly do our reasonable best to
accommodate your needs. WE NEED A STREET
ADDRESS FOR ITEMS SENT BY UPS. Both UPS and some customs forms ask for the
Buyer’s phone number. This
is not required – and is only for your benefit so they can reach you if they
have a delivery question – so it’s your choice.
OVERSEAS SHIPPING: YES. WE DO SHIP TO CANADA and overseas on most items. We gladly ship
internationally. We are shipping from Peoria, Arizona 85383. We do not mark-up
international postage costs! NO HANDLING FEES! Insurance is included. If you choose First Class International,
there is no Tracking Number available. Once I ship it – all we can do is
wait. Our insurance company will not even consider a claim for loss until at
least 45 days has passed. You will know
for certain that it has been mailed, but depending on the Customs department in
your country – who knows when it will come? Most deliveries are at your home
country customs department within five days of the time I ship (almost everything
travels by air these days). We will have a Customs number, and the US Post
Office will update the online file only twice – right away when the item is
shipped and sometime after it has been delivered. Priority Mail International cost more – and is required for all
items over 4 pounds – and certain other items – but they also provide more current tracking information. We are not responsible for any customs delays or customs
duties or fees. WE ARE GLAD TO HAVE YOUR
BUSINESS! THANK YOU!!
extra care to pack items professionally.
We’ve been shipping antiques for over 30 years. But, if an item is ever
damaged in shipping, email me photos right away of the shipping box and
the damaged contents. We require you to
keep the shipping carton and packing for damaged items so that the carrier
and/or insurance company can review them, and to send us digital photos of the damaged item and packaging.
You may be required to repack the items and return them – or ready them for the
carrier to pick them up. This is how the insurance departments of the
shipping carrier work – their rules, not mine. THANK YOU in advance for your
event that a refund is in order, eBay will only refund to us
the final value fees they charged for our transaction if they buyer cooperates
with the seller to cancel the transaction. If the buyer fails to cooperate with
the eBay Cancel Transaction procedure, we will deduct the sales fees from your
refund – why let eBay keep the fees on a failed transaction instead of getting
all the money back in your pocket??? As the Seller we will initiate a
Transaction Cancellation – and in the event of a refund, this kind of
cancellation requested by the Seller will have no negative impact on your eBay
status at all.
WE GLADLY COMBINE MULTIPLE ITEMS. Just contact us by any time before we ship
and we will GLADLY adjust the invoice. Even if you have already paid the original invoice – so long as I have
not actually shipped the item yet and I
am GLAD to repack multiple items together to save you money!!!
measurements and weights, etc. are approximate.
If you need it precise, please ask us to verify before you bid. I’m an
old man and I don’t see so good, so I have to get ahold of one of the
neighbor’s kids and ask them to precisely read the tape measure for me. If you’re old like me – you know how it is.
If you’re not old yet – you’ll find out later . . .
**IF YOU HAVE ANY ISSUES**
ANY ISSUES AT ALL
PLEASE CONTACT US
TO DISCUSS THE MATTER.
We’ve made mistakes in the past, and we know that
we’ll make mistakes in the future.
But our mistakes should be our problem, NOT YOURS.
Again – we are not in the “gotcha” business. We want you to be happy with
your purchase. We are not some big
company with a large staff and thousands upon thousands of customers (we
wish!). Instead – there are just the two
of us – handling only a few sales per week.
And we do care about each transaction, each item, each advertised
description, each inquiry, each sale, each packed item, and each customer.
As always, we stand behind the accuracy of this
description. We pride ourselves on Customer Satisfaction,
and we are committed to doing our reasonable best to see to your needs. If an
issue arises, please contact us right away to discuss the matter with us – and
in no case later than 3 days after your receipt of the item.
Thanks for your interest! I mean it – THANK YOU!
