Shipping policies

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: I welcome your business! If your location isn't listed, please convo and I may be able to ship to you. The first 2 USPS pricing tiers are 1-8 ounces and 9-32 ounces, thereby making some items more affordable. Also, you will be responsible for all duties, customs, brokerage, etc. fees that might be charged by the shipper or your government.

Additional policies

Most of my inventory comes from estate sales, garage sales, thrift shops, and the like. After purchase, they are stored in my smoke-free studio. I cannot guarantee that they have not been subject to smoke, pet or other environmental allergens, but I try to weed out that type of thing; items that are disgustingly affected by odors are not sold by SNIPPETS OF TIME.
