just use a Brass cleaner - the prongs on the bottom
should be gently opened and you can then push/slide out

VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE ITEMS ARE GENERALLY 'used'
- and may not be in pristine condition. If you prefer 'new' perhaps vintage/antiques
are not best for you. Condition is the subjective or personal opinion of one person
which may not always meet the opinion determined by another.
All sales are final - items are 'as is.' When we describe an item and its condition,
we are providing our opinion. Therefore, the only exception where we would
consider a return is if we had grossly erred in a description or misrepresented
the item's condition. If breakage occurs in shipping - read our shipping terms.
PICTURES ARE PROVIDED TO SUPPORT THE ITEM DESCRIPTION
- along with necessary measurements and we disclose any imperfections we are
able to see. If you have any questions, after viewing all the pictures and reading
the description, simply email and we will respond. Picture quality and color is
subject to each individual person's visual acuity and computer monitor settings
[ i.e., it may not be the color 'you' see].

- you wish to purchase and will read the description and view the pictures to
determine if our item fits your criteria. Also, that you will ask any questions
prior to purchasing.
WHAT YOU SEE IN THE PICTURES AND READ IN THE DESCRIPTION
- is what you will receive - except for those items noted as display or used as
a background. Basically, the 'description' is the item you are purchasing.
1. We are not affiliated with any Designer, Trade Name, Company, Business
or Brand Name
2. We are a non-smoking 'smoke free' environment; however, we sell a wide
variety of items from varied locations. Therefore, while we cannot guarantee
anything is smoke-free, we do strive to avoid selling items with detectable or
lingering scents. Additionally, the Olfactory System is unique, every single
person detects scents differently and we cannot be held liable for any 'scent'
noticed by another.
3. We use standard packaging materials that may carry manufacturing scents
and some do believe they smell like perfume
4. We may do as other sellers do and charge a minimal handling fee for
packaging materials. If you have questions, simply ask and we will respond.

PAYPAL ONLY - immediate payment required
payment at the time of purchase or upon receipt of Invoice
WE COMBINE SHIPPING
- when the size/shape of the items purchased permit using the same box. You
can TRUST US …so go ahead and purchase, knowing we will refund the excess
shipping fee paid - directly to your PayPal account, once the shipping label has
been printed. If funds are tight, email us right away so we may quickly process
the refund for you.
WE PACK PROFESSIONALLY
- so you do not need to be concerned about your purchase. However, that said,
while we may be careful with wrapping and handling of the package, the USPS
workers are not. If you have any concerns, email us to request Insurance,
PRIOR to purchase, if your item is under $50.00. Items over $50.00 are
automatically Insured. If an item is damaged in shipping and Insurance was part
of your shipping cost, we will require proof of damage and will need pictures of
the damaged item and the damage on the box. Sorry but some people are not
honest. This policy is also necessary because we do consignments and the
owners want proof of the damaged item. Please, do not throw any packaging
material or the box away until your Insurance claim has been paid. The USPS
may require some additional pictures directly from you. If you chose not to
request insurance, prior to purchasing the item and it is damaged or lost in
transit, please contact your local USPS facility for assistance.
