An ostrich is dressed like a dandy, and thinks he can be too forward with the ladies, but the "Dude"
gets "mashed:"

Cards are in fairly good vintage condition, with light wear and some toning

Frequently asked questions about mudintheUSA

There are two basic ways to reduce shipping fees. One is to let me know your zip code. If you are closer to me than the zip code I use for my estimates, it is possible to reduce the shipping fees. First class mail goes by weight only, not distance, so it would be possible to to reduce fees on say, a lot of buttons or a postcard only in rare occasions.

The other way would be to bundle purchases. If you were buying more than one postcard or more than one lot of buttons, shipping fees could probably be reduced. Buying something fairly light, (like an elf), with something more substantial, (like an enamel bowl), the two might combine with reduced fees.

Please write for firm estimates! I will do what I can!
I am willing to hear your reasonable offer!
I have years of experience shipping many types of items. My failure rate is a fraction of 1% -- and I have learned from my mistakes. I use industry standards to pack postcards, records, and fragile items.
There are no refunds.

That being said, a refund will be considered ONLY if item is substantially different from the description and photos. Photos are a part of the description. View them for signs of wear or damage.

Most of my items are vintage so naturally are often NOT going to be in perfectly new condition. I take pains to describe faults. Therefore items cannot be returned for those faults/wear. Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. Shipping charges are not refunded. No partial refunds. Full refund of item price once it is returned. Item must be returned in the condition it was sent to you.

Damaged/lost in shipping...you must fully cooperate with filing a claim. you will be refunded once the claim is finalized.
