I'm based in beautiful Normandy, France and all items will be shipped from that location. Traditionally, I had been shipping from the USA but now that I've completed my move from the USA to Europe any items I list will be leaving me to you from my new location. All items come from a smoke free environment and they are sourced from my own collections, which have been accumulated over so ,many years. Additionally, if I see any attractive items that I can offer at good value to other eBayers I will normally sweep it and offer it through my eBay account. I am making every effort to ensure all items are properly described. If i have made an error i will always correct the situation to your full satisfaction.
