tessimal's Shop Policies
Hi Folks! Thank you for visiting my store!
I ship once a week. If your paypal address is different from your etsy address I will convo you and wait for a confirmed address before I ship any item. Please respond so your item gets shipped promptly. Otherwise you will have to wait.
I accept paypal, and United States,postal money orders, Thanks for your patience!
Shipping in the winter months.
I do bulk shipping once a week. So if you purchase items the day I already drove to the post office shipping gets bumped up a week. At this time I can not ship every day of the week I am the only employee.
Shipping to United States
To Keep your costs low I usually ship Parcel Post. Some times First Class if it cost less.
If you want your item shipped faster and are willing to pay for priority mail you must convo me before you purchase item so I can adjust the shipping cost. Also if you want to pay for tracking or delivery confirmation, or insurance. Contact me. If you live in an area where theft is a problem, you need to consider paying for delivery confirmation so you are guaranteed by signing in person,that you will receive items. You must convo me before you purchase items. Once I send item it is in the hands of the postal system. If you think your item is lost in the mail please convo me and I will report the problem to the post office.
I ship to your etsy address on the receipt page. So make sure it is your current address, It is your responsibility to provide me with the correct address.
Shipping can take anywhere from 1-6 weeks to arrive to your house. Especially in the Winter Months around Christmas time. The post office says they deliver 7-15 days across the country.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING FROM U.S.A.
I am willing to ship to any country. I do not know about all duties and taxes in your country's postal system. I do know that some countries hold items for lengthy inspections - and some countries have big problems with mail theft. It's your responsibility to know about your postal system and plan for any additional charges from importing goods.
In many countries to get your item you have to go to the post office and pay custom and duty taxes. I have no control over this.
I have had success and no problems shipping to Australia, England,Canada,and Japan with no insurance. Still - if you choose to buy without insurance there is an element of risk, a small one with those countries, but still a risk.
If I ship items to you, are you willing to pay the $30.00 Insurance Fee? This has a tracking number and assures that the item will get delivered. If you don't want insurance there is no guarantee you will get the package.
I will ship to China if you are willing to pay the $30 dollar insurance fee. I do know that items shipped to China without insurance get lost in the mail.
I also know that items shipped to Sweden may get a heavy duty charged based on the declared value of the item. Most European countries charge duties - it's a source of tax revenue that supports socialized medicine, among other benefits.
If you know your country's international postal policies and are confident and have prior successful experiences with receiving items from the U.S.A. without items getting lost, you take into your hands the risk of not receiving item. Once I ship and have my receipts on insured and tracked mail. I hold no responsibility if item gets lost in the mail on your end.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not happy with your purchase send it back we will refund your money. I only refund after I receive item back. We do not pay for the cost of shipping for returned items.
Additional Policies and FAQs
Many of my items are vintage, unique rare and not brand new. They may have small flaws that I can not see, they are all one of a kind items. I try to the best of my ability to describe them and photograph them accurately. So what you see is what you get.
