Boring Details: Most of the items I sell are vintage or at the very least pre-owned. I take great care to list clean and immediately wearable/usable items. However, since these items have had a previous life, they may have been well loved and/or improperly cared for. I cannot guarantee absence of all smoke/pet hair/pollen/drugs/alcohol/oh did you read the last two? Obviously, I am trying to say that if you prefer brand new, unloved, untouched stuff, best bid elsewhere. But, if you appreciate patina, normal wear and iniquity, please check out my other listings, and stay tuned, I promise to list great stuff weekly!
Payment and Shipping: Grownups make contact and/or pay within 4 days, all others will be reported and banned! I will gladly combine shipping on most items, to save you $$$!!! Do be reasonable, I can't combine an antique sad iron with Fine China! I ship FAST--within 1 or 2 days of receiving cleared payment! Delivery confirmation is included in shipping cost. I package all items with the utmost of care, but out of respect for our planet, I may choose gently used or recycled packaging materials.
