Ablast2thepast's Shop Policies
A BLAST 2 THE PAST Antiques & Collectibles has taken The Honest Vintage Pledge: Everything that I have tagged as vintage in my shop is at least twenty years old or older. I stake my reputation on it. I will never knowingly sell a fake or a repro knockoff to my customers.
Back in the 70's my husband and I began collecting antique and vintage items,before collecting was considered fashionable.As we traveled through out the years,each vacation,weekend trip we would enjoy the thrill of the hunt,as we looked for treasures.
We are now selling our years of "treasures",everything from "soup to nuts",we have many antiques and good vintage collectibles: old toys,household items,ceramics,tools,old beauty& barber supplies/equipment,vanity items,linens,much to much to list.We have always LOVED our little treasures,or stuff as we call them and we are sure you will too.
We have sold on ebay since 1999 and have a 100% feedback.
We will guaranteed the items we sell to be in the condition as described in the listing.Because of the fact that they are vintage items and have the usual wear we will describe any imperfections,as well as try to show as many pictures as needed.
Once in a while we list for sale items which are mint,MIB (Mint in the box).
If you have any questions about the items, please e-mail us before you purchase!
We will except payments as follows;
PERSONAL CHECK(10 business days )to clear before item is shipped to you.***
MONEY ORDER PAYMENT: Please notify us after reserving your item to let me know you are sending payment.***
PAYPAL PAYMENTS:Required to have a verified address at PayPal. PayPal and Etsy "ship to" addresses match.Or if you are sending to another address PLEASE LET US KNOW.
And Must pay within 1-7 days of reserving your items, unless we agree on a longer time.
I ship to the address provided by Paypal.Please double check your paypal ship to address. If the address provided is incorrect and any additional shipping charges due to address error will be the responsibility of the purchaser. Items that you want shipped to a business address require the name of the business, as well as your name and a phone number. These will be sent with signature confirmation. If you have an unconfirmed address with paypal, or you want the item shipped to another address as a gift to someone, please convo me to verify the 'ship to' address. Please be aware that you need to contact paypal if your shipping address needs to be updated. I print the shipping label from the address you give to paypal.
All items are sent by USPS :I try to ship the cheapest rate Priority Mail, parcel post, or First Class (according to weight, location, and size). I ship the day the item is purchased or the following day. If you want insurance on a item you will need to convo me first so that I can add the charges..which are
There is an additional cost for Express or Overnight shipping. Contact me if you need this service, otherwise shipping within the U.S. takes from two to seven days depending on your location.
We try our best to keep the S&H as low as possible, while at the same time providing you with the best shipping protection,of your item(s),after all what is the point of purchasing and antique or collectible ( that cannot be replaced ) and have it arrive broken or damaged, we know full well how careless the mail is today!
WE USUALLY CHARGE THE Actual shipping price plus a $1.00 or $2.00 handling fee (depending on the packing material needed(BUBBLE WRAP & FOAM)).
We also include a confirmation with our shipping which is reflected in the shipping charge.We also add insurance to the shipping cost of fragile items and high end items. Any costs of S&H over two dollars will be refunded back to your paypal account.
INTERNATIONAL BUYERS SHIPPING & INSURANCE:
ALL BUYERS MUST SEND ME A CONTACT PHONE NUMBER BEFORE I WILL SHIP OUT!
International First Class can be up to 4 lbs but has to stay within a certain size or must go by Priority Mail Flat rate which is a min of $20.00 & up depending on the size box.When possible I will ship First Class Parcel with insurance through INSUREPOST and all INTERNATIONAL packages**. So there will be a $2.00 (per $100.00 value) extra cost added to the shipping costs.Items that you want shipped to a business address require the name of the business, as well as your name and a phone number. These will be sent with signature confirmation. If you have an unconfirmed address with paypal, or you want the item shipped to another address as a gift to someone, please convo me to verify the 'ship to' address. Please be aware that you need to contact paypal if your shipping address needs to be updated. I print the shipping label from the address you give to paypal, so please double check before you buy.
CUSTOMS & COVERAGE:
International buyers need to be aware of any customs, or other charges that they may be required to pay. The buyer is responsible for paying any charges with a separate transaction between buyer and their country. I do not pay customs charges or include that fee in my shipping costs. Also, items do not get marked as "gift" on the customs tag.Items that you want shipped to a business address require the name of the business, as well as your name and a phone number.
Please check with customs in your country to be sure what you want is ALLOWED in your Country, and I can legally ship it to you. I can not be responsible for any items SHIPPED and later found out that it is not allowed to be shipped to your country,buyer assumes all the responsibility and the item may get confiscated at customs. **If you the item shipped a prohibited item, there is NO INSURANCE
If you aren't sure, convo me before the sale so I can check . International buyers are very welcome and I will ship anywhere that is allowed:
In addition, we DO NOT SHIP to any location that would be in violation of any U.S. economic or trade sanctions including OFAC Restricted Countries http://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions/Programs/Pages/Programs.aspx
Our Overseas Customers ,to keep the cost of shipping down we will ship first class parcel.However with this this type of shipping it does have its draw backs.The package can only be tracked in the USA,once it leaves our country we have NO way of knowing its whereabouts..It can take up to 6-8 weeks for some packages to arrive to you.
We will provide the customs number of the package,then you will need to contact you're postal service.
