All of my Tupperware is Vintage and in fair to excellent, used condition unless otherwise stated. Pieces may include utensil scratches or marring, which does not affect the functionality. Each of the Vintage items should still have many years of useable service, but in case I miss seeing something or damage occurs during shipment, luckily all are covered by the famous Tupperware lifetime guarantee against chipping, peeling, cracking or breakage (that’s why we all love Tupperware instead of cheap knock-offs). There is no exact science when judging condition, so it’s a subjective call based solely on my opinion. Because of this, I rarely include condition in my descriptions, as it has led to some some ugly debates with “road rage” customers. Yet, I also have over 8000 happy customers, who are thrilled with the quality of my merchandise. So, if you’d like more detailed descriptions of condition on any pieces, please ask before you bid. I am always happy to answer questions.
As with all food service items, everything should be washed after shipping and before use, even if brand new or previously washed. All Tupperware manufactured after 1977 is supposed to be dishwasher safe, but I’m still a firm believer in washing seals by hand to prevent warping.
The only items included in the auction are those described. Other items pictured are for display, size or color comparison only. Hopefully you can laugh along with me at the lady who left crazy feedback and “will never buy from you again” because of an apple in the photograph.
In some cases, additional or duplicate items may be available. If you are looking for additional quantities of items please contact me for a private auction. On occasion, I’ve had winning bidders request that some of the items in an auction be excluded to reduce shipping costs. I’m happy to honor these requests as long as full payment of bid price is honored. I work hard at customer service, especially for loyal and repeat customers.
I am honored to ship to our military members at APO and FPO addresses, and thank each of you for your sacrifices and service to our country. I no longer ship to international addresses without a U.S. zip code. I welcome local pick-ups for people who live close enough, and require cash payment at the time the items are picked up.
Yes, I am happy to combine shipping on multiple purchases made within three days and paid for in a single transaction. Items paid for separately do not qualify for combined shipping rates. The current eBay fee structure precludes issuing shipping cost refunds, so PLEASE WAIT for a combined invoice prior to payment, as I can often beat the eBay calculator’s combined shipping cost quotes. Once payments have been made, excess shipping costs cannot be refunded. All prices and shipping costs quoted in listings are firm, with the exception of combined shipping savings.
I WON’T ASK YOU TO PAY MORE
PLEASE DON’T ASK ME TO TAKE LESS
Invoices give choices of shipping methods. In most cases, I will ship by the method you choose. Just to cover all the bases, I reserve the right to ship via Post Office, UPS, FedEx or other services, whenever necessary or reasonable.
Payment is expected at the end of the auction. Payment may be made through PayPal, or cash at the time of local pick up. PayPal also has a program that may allow payment by a credit card, if you do not have a PayPal account. Click “Pay Now” and that option should appear for you. If payment is not received within 5 days of end of auction, I reserve the right to cancel and relist the item.
I will ship within 24 hours after payment is received / cleared. I will send you a message through the e-Bay message system to let you know when your item is being shipped, by which carrier, and when you might expect to receive it. Items shipped via U.S. Post Office or UPS include a tracking number. Just click on the eBay listing or the PayPal transaction to view the tracking information.
Under normal circumstances I do not offer refunds unless I’ve somehow managed to grossly misrepresent an item. (Remember, your definition of “good condition” and mine may be different.) I mostly sell as-is used merchandise unless otherwise indicated. I have learned from experience that refunds do not prevent negative feedback or hard feelings. On the contrary, the people who are most likely to hurl insults, accusations, and demand refunds - are the same people who are most likely to leave negative feedback regardless of my actions. I know each of you probably have met some of these cranky people. If you are unsatisfied in any way just contact me. I'm a reasonable person and something can always be worked out with reasonable people.
Positive Feedback and 5-star ratings are always appreciated when the package is received! If you’re unable to leave Positive Feedback or 5 stars for any reason, please contact me first. I want to hear from you about how I can better serve all of my customers in the future!
Thanks for looking! I hope that covers most everything. Please ask any questions at least 2 hours before auction ends or you may not get a response in time.
