I have another carryall box listed that is red, and I was saying in that listing that, in the winter when I have to use my kitchen table to take Ebay photos, people are always asking me if they can buy my carryall on my table. I use it to hole my A&P, napkins, sugar, etc. and I love it, so won't sell it, BUT, I'm always on the lookout for you - that's why I bought this one. Perfect for a table center and every day use, or even as a tote for the bar-b-que - you can't go wrong! It's hand made from pine. The handle is a thick branch with the bark still on, and the long body sides have the bark rough cut off - know what I mean, like they cut the bark off for log homes but the wood is left with all the wonderful ridges from the hand cut. The ends are simply rough cut, very lightly sanded wood. It is in excellent solid and sturdy condition. It's rustic, with rustic wear to the finish in scratches, scrapes and wear, and to the wood with minor dings and scrapes. You can see the hardware heads used in the construction and they have an age darkened patina. It's vintage, but not all that old - but what it lacks in age, it totally makes up in rustic charm. It measures 9 3/8" by 5 1/4" at the box - but the sides were left rounded - in the shape of the log. So, the space that you have on the inside of the box is 8 1/4" by 4" by 2 1/4" deep. It weighs 1 3/4 lbs. It's dusty, and could use a good cleaning. If you love primtive hand made charm - this one is for you!
Please ask if you have any questions, or feel free to inform me if you have any information about one of my listings. As with any of my items, if you ever need extra pictures, let me know, just make sure that you give me an email address to send them to. Pick up is welcome on all of my items. I’m happy to combine shipments for you, but I do ask that there be no more than 7 days from the purchase of the first item - I will invoice after 7 days, as I cannot hold the items longer than that.
Also, many of my items come from local rural estate sales and auctions. They are coming right from the barn or attic to you! I do not take the time to clean and polish before I sell - they are in the condition found, as you see in my photos - and I do my best to photo and describe thoroughly.
Please email me before bidding if you do not use Paypal, and we can discuss possible alternatives. Payment is due within 7 business days after close of auction, after that, the sale will be void, and I will relist the item.
I have had some trouble with the Ebay shipping calculator giving people bombastic shipping rates (especially after purchase with the Ebay “Pay Now“ invoice on Parcel Post rates). I charge shipping cost, so if you think it’s too high, email me so that I can check it out, before you pay me. That being said, we pack very well, so that will add to the weight.
I ship within one business day of receipt of your payment, or I will notify you otherwise.
With postage rates going up and up, I am shipping more items Parcel Post. Please realize that this can mean a 2-3 week delivery, sometimes longer. As a matter of fact, this year, I’m finding the “longer” more the norm. Parcel Post travels by land or rail and, at least in this area, packages do not leave the regional post office until they fill up a bin going in the same direction (so there’s no estimated exact number of days like you have with Priority Mail - the Post Office says 5-7 days, but that‘s not what I’m finding). I mail right away so it can get to you as soon as possible.
With the exception of the most heavy and/or large items, I will always give both Priority Mail and Parcel Post as shipping options, with Priority being first for my lighter items. Be sure you check out both rates . I will be happy to ship an item in a flat rate Priority mail box, if that is cheaper to you - as long as the item will fit well packed in the box - ask me before you bid if you think that’s the case for you.
INTERNATIONAL AND NON-MAINLAND USA: Shipping costs are available to mainland U.S. only. IF OUTSIDE OF THE MAINLAND USA, PLEASE ASK ME FOR SHIPPING BEFORE BIDDING IF NO SHIPPING PRICE IS LISTED. Shipping times vary and I’ve experienced up to 8+ weeks for delivery after I have mailed internationally (and longer if it‘s stopped for inspection). Please keep this in mind when bidding. ALL INTERNATIONAL ITEMS WILL BE SHIPPED PRIORITY MAIL OR EXPRESS MAIL WITH SIGNATURE AT MY DISCRETION, UNLESS PRE-ARRANGED PRIOR TO THE CLOSE OF THE AUCTION WITH ME. Also, import duties, taxes, and country specific charges are not included in the purchase price or the shipping price, AND THEY ARE THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER. Please do not ask me to declare an amount that is different than the purchase price - I will not lie! All international buyers must pay with Paypal, no other payment types are accepted.
Sales tax will be added for Illinois buyers.
Customer satisfaction is extremely important to me. If you receive an item and are not satisfied in any way, please contact me. .…and thanks so much for looking, I appreciate having you as a customer!
