  Copyright 2012 By LadyShalene

Shipping Insurance required on all invoices totaling $ 15.00 or more ... auctions showing $ 1.00 shipping charge includes insurance.

By the way ... combined shipping (5 day period) does exist within My Special Paradise.



SHIPPING ..... Please Ask for an invoice before checking out. I generally go to the Post Office on a DAILY BASIS, Mondays thru Friday ... however, if I am incapacitated, due to a spinal injury from a motorcycle accident in 1986, it may take up to 48 hours to ship your item(s). As for Saturdays ... our country Post office is only open for an hour on Saturdays, so ... I do try my very best to deal with that the best I can. Please understand that I am also a buyer, and I know how important it is to get an item as quickly as possible, and in good condition ... for this reason, I do not ship First Class. First Class offers no insurance, no tracking, and it takes forever to get your item, in God only knows what condition! I primarily ship Priority Insured ... and I do seek the cheapest way of using Priority! I have an excellent reputation for being an honest eBayer that goes that extra mile for other eBayers, and I am very proud of that reputation, but things can go wrong, and, if they do, I only hope that you will be understanding and contact me with your concerns. I also have a great reputation of refunding EXCESS SHIPPING CHARGES ... if you find that you paid more for shipping than what I paid, and you did not get a refund, please contact me ... I am not perfect, I can make mistakes too ... and I do! In regards to International Shipping ... the Postal Services, here and abroad, sucks pimentos! If I put a magazine in a Priority Mail Envelope, I can ship for under $ 10.00 ... BUT, I can not insure the item! If I put the same magazine in a box, for safer shipping, they want to charge over $ 40.00! Get it? Got it? Good! So, when you see a huge shipping price, it includes insurance, and ... if I can get it shipped any cheaper, I will refund anything over  .99 cents (in whole dollars), guaranteed! Please understand that I have lost a lot of money when it comes to shipping, and I am trying to rectify that problem. No business can succeed when items are uninsured and have disappeared somewhere between Hawaii and outer Mongolia. For that reason, TRACKING IS MANDATORY! If you do not get a tracking number ... please inform us of this!

FREE GIFTS ..... We do send every visitor a complimentary bag of Hawaiian Island Tea, a random flavor is chosen. If you receive a particular flavor that you would like to receive with future purchases, please let use know ... otherwise, you will receive a random flavor. You may want to see all flavors available, and you can do that by looking at our auctions for the teas. We may also include a sample of a Gourmet Hawaiian Hard Candy (random flavor) with your purchase, depending if a box or envelope is used for shipping. All of these items are things that we partake of on a daily basis, and offer for sale ... because we enjoy them so much, and want others to enjoy them too. Just because you do not live in Hawaii, that does not mean you have to do without some of the wonderful flavors of the islands. By the way ... if there is something that you have been searching for, perhaps something you missed buying on a vacation to the islands, or have heard of, or have got to have more of ... let us know and we will see if we can attain it for you.

BLOCKED BIDDERS ..... Now to the uncomfortable stuff ..... if an item is not paid for within 7 days, and the Buyer does not reply to an e-mail, eBay automaticaly opens a case against the buyer on the eighth day. If the buyer still does not pay for the item (within another 10 days), then eBay places a Non-Payment Mark against the buyer. Some sellers will not sell to those that have these marks against them ... we automatically block anyone we have had problems with ... that includes other sellers. We have no time to waste on dishonest, or problematic, people. As a seller/buyer, in support of other sellers/buyers, we do not allow an account with Non-Payment marks against it to bid on our auctions ... in this way, all Buyers can feel secure in bidding and winning the auction, and not losing an item due to a dishonest Buyer. And, believe me, there are plenty of jerks out there ... and we block them as soon as we run into them! Mainly, because they cost all sellers wasted time, and financial losses that other buyers have to pay, through raised prices, or sellers could not continue selling. Once a person is blocked from buying anything from My Special Paradise, they remain blocked for a year ... if a buyer is blocked due to harassments, and etc., that buyer remains blocked forever ... A SELF PESERVATION TACTIC! Keep in mind that sellers also block high-maintenance buyers, as well as those that appear to be problematic. we tend to block people that anger us ... so that we will (hopefully) not have any further problems with them ... such as acts of revenge, which is the only reason I do not ship to Spain. we do apologize to all the residence of that marvelous country ... but, we must protect ourselves from future problems with people that have proven themselves to be extremely dishonest individuals. I should explain something here of great importance, and if you judge me as a nut case, that is your problem, but we still need to tell you. All of my close friends know, for a fact, that I have an angel (spiritual force) that guides me, and tells me truths. Laugh if you will, but all of my friends have seen the proof, many times over, and there is no question in their minds about it. This is one of the reasons that I try to be as fair as possible with everyone. Believe me, I have a few enemies around the world that literally hate me ... because they know I have something that they do not think they have ... and they think I am charmed, that everything always goes my way ... which is not true at all. I have my ups and downs, just like everybody else! I have times when anything that could go wrong ... goes 100% wrong! However, when it comes to the important stuff, like survival ... I am truly blessed ... even though that blessing may come at the very last second! And, let me say this ... everyone has an angel ... you just have to listen when they talk to you! Back to eBay.

PACKAGING ..... We take great care in packaging/shipping all items! Mainly because there are some real stoopid sellers out there that have shown us how not to pack items!

HANDLING FEES .....  we should mention here that handling fees include packing materials to assure safe delivery to you, as well as traveling charges to the Post Office. Do not allow sellers to charge you handing fees for something they slip into an envelope and send to you ... unless there is something used to keep that envelope from being bent or folded. We suggest you make sure that your items are insured, even more so when it comes to breakables, collectibles, and anything costing you over a certain amount, an amount of your choice. We automatically tell buyers that anything over $ 15.00 must be insured ... no exceptions! And that fee is automatically incorporated into the shipping fee, by eBay rules. When you see an item that we say ships for $ 1.00 ... that includes insurance!  AND REMEMBER, IF WE LIST AN ITEM WITH A SHIPPING CHARGE OVER THE $ 1.00, WE DO REFUND EXCESS SHIPPING CHARGES OVER $ .99. THAT MEANS THAT IF YOU PAY $ 15.00 FOR SHIPPING, AND WE ARE ABLE TO GET A SHIPPING PRICE OF $ 9.00 ... WE TAKE THE $ 15.00 AND SUBTRACT $ 9.00, LEAVING A TOTAL OF $ 6.00. WE SUBTRACT A $ .99 HANDLING CHARGE, LEAVING A BALANCE OF $ 5.01 ... YOU RECEIVE A REFUND OF $ 5.00. THE EXCESS (.99) IS USED FOR PACKING MATERIALS AND TRANSPORATION TO THE POST OFFICE AND BACK. BELIEVE ME, PLENTY OF SELLERS POCKET ALL THE EXCESS,AND YOU NEVER KNOW IT! HOWEVER, SOME SELLERS, THAT HAVE BOUGHT FROM US, HAVE BEEN DOING THE SAME AS WE ARE DOING ... WHICH IS REALLY ENCOURAGING! WE RECEIVE E-MAILS ALL THE TIME FROM PEOPLE THAT ARE SHOCKED THAT WE REALLY DO REFUND MONEY IN REGARDS TO SHIPPING! HEY, AHAPPY BUYER RETURNS TO BUY AGAIN IN THE FUTURE! And, by the way, we use USPS.COM to print our shipping labels ... USPS lists the amount paid for shipping right on the label! If the price is not shown on the label, then the buyer has to ask himself, or herself, "WHY IS THE SELLER NOT DISCLOSING THIS INFO?" You have the right to see the shipping charges! YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW YOU ARE BEING TREATED AS FAIRLY AS POSSIBLE!

COMBINED SHIPPING ..... One thing many buyers do not think of, and I was guilty of this too, is that the Post Office charges by weight and by size of package, which makes it a necessity to add a handling fee per item. Combined shipping does not mean free ... it means that you pay less shipping for other items bought at the same time, and all are shipped together in the same package. Of course, one would not pack a fragile item in the same box as a heavy item, so that would be the exception to the rule. Another exception to the rule would be size. If you bought a bottle of Perfume that woud fit in a small flat rate box, you would have a shipping charge of about $ 6.00. However, if you added another bottle to you purchase, then we are talking a larger box, and the shipping charges are higher. A very good example would be something that happened recently ... a woman in Japan bought a bottle of cologne ... I sent her an invoice for $ 15.70 shipping ... the price to ship in a small flat rate box to Japan. Then she sid she wanted to buy anther cologne, which was a larger bottle, and could not be shipped in a smal box, but would have to be shipped in a medium flat rate box ... but ... she wanted comined shipping with the smaller bottle. Well, it explained that it was not possible, and we sent her a screen shot of the USPS prices for a medium flat rate box ... we re talking $ 43.00 plus insurance! She opted not to buy the other bottle of cologne, and we totally agreed with that decision. Not all items are available for Combined Shipping ... so contact us before biding, then we can discuss the shipping charges for all that you wish to puchase. Remember, we do our best to ship as cheaply as possible ... but we will only ship in a manner that your items are insured, do not take weeks to get to you, and arrive in good condition because the item was not shipped in a box that was too small to protect your purchase.

FEEDBACK ..... FeedBack is extremely important to both Sellers and Buyers ... and ... should be given with caution. If you are unhappy with a Seller, or a Buyer, and you have no intentions of ever doing business with that person ever again ... come hell or high waters ... you can leave a NEGATIVE feedback. However, if you intend to keep doing business with a Seller, in the future, do not leave a negative ... why? Because most sellers block Buyers that have left them bad feedback! So, you really need to be careful what you leave in the way of feedback. Yes, I block anyone that leaves me bad feedback ... unless I actually do deserve the negative! I can give you an excellent example. I sell a lot of Marilyn collectibles ... including my own tributes to her. I has a buyer that I liked ... seemed to be a very nice young man ... until he blew-up over what he demed to be rediculously high prices for magazines. Now, I explain to people that the prices I paid are the prices I sell for, plus eBay fees. I do not charge for PayPal fees ...so, I am already losing a small amount due to that. Anyhoots ... this person blew-up ... was extremely rude... so, to end the abuse, I blocked the person. Months later ... the person e-mails me because of a Franklin Mint Reflection repaint has caught the Buyer's eye. This person tells me that I should not be so sensitive, and let by-gones be by-gones, so he can buy the new statue. He doesn't apologize ... he just continues to try to make me feel guilty. The bottom line ... the guy remains blocked ... not because I do not like him ... but because I do not need the drama! SO, PEOPLE, BE VERY CAREFUL HOW YOU TREAT PEOPLE YOU DO BUSINESS WITH ... DO NOT BURN BRIDGES THAT YOU KNOW YOU WILL HAVE TO TRY TO REBUILD AGAIN IN THE FUTURE! Oh, by the way, ebay treats NEUTRAL FEEDBACK as a negative! So, be careful with that one too!

THANK YOU MESSAGE ..... eBay can be a wonderful, and fun filled, experience ... and I sincerely hope your continued visits to My Special Paradise will be gratifying, and filled with the Spirit Of Aloha. Mahalo for your time, and attention. Be Well and Stay safe!
