- bundanoon in nsw, australia

the good:

- measures approximately 43 cm wide x 28 cm high (30 cm including handle)

Shipping policies

• all items are shipped within 1 business day (except in rare circumstances!), but very often the same day. if you need express shipping, you can purchase this as an add on in the shipping section.
• shipping prices are calculated on weight and size - please note that shipping estimates are often estimated higher than shipping may be to your address - please convo prior to purchase to get a more accurate shipping quote - most often will be cheaper!
• shipping will be combined for multiple items, and a refund given for additional postage paid.
• all orders are shipped to the address specified by Etsy, so please ensure your address is up to date prior to payment and checkout.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

// packaging //
epoch co. is very green, and i only use recycled packaging/shipping materials to help reduce my footprint on the environment. although the box and packing products may look used, i would never use unsanitary materials.

all vintage purchases will be wrapped and packed with the utmost care, in order that it makes it’s way to you in one perfectly vintage piece.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

// insurance //
insurance and tracking are optional, but definitely recommended to avoid losing items in the mail. all packages (not letters) within australia have tracking now automatically included in the regular postage price, but if you would like to add on insurance at checkout, it is $1.50 for every $100 in value. signature on delivery ($2.95) is also available as an extra check out option. insurance is recommended for valuable or breakable items.

international shipping also has trackable options, and insurance can be selected on some options. when shipping is already fairly expensive (i.e. over $50), these options are generally only a few dollars more. please convo me for prices prior to checkout.
