INTERNATIONAL BUYERS -- shipping is NOT $77.00 – outside the United States

-- I AM HAPPY TO SHIP ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, but international shipping costs vary so much for my vintage items, that I ask my potential international buyers to PLEASE convo me for costs PRIOR TO PURCHASE. The shipping price listed for EVERYWHERE ELSE is intentionally crazy high – PLEASE DO NOT PAY IT WITHOUT CONVOING ME FIRST. I will happily calculate your correct shipping price, based on your location and how you want it shipped . Please understand, I cannot get insurance for many international locations. I can usually only track it within the US. I have had VERY FEW lost items shipped overseas, but I cannot be responsible for it once it goes into the US Post. Overseas buyers may have to pay customs or duty upon receiving their item, but it is NOT my responsibility to pay it for you and I cannot build it into the shipping cost. I will put the exact selling price on the customs forms.

I pack items VERY well and try to ship as inexpensively as is safely possible but I DO add a small bit for supplies.

Please contact me if you have questions or think I have left something out.

Most of my pix are much larger than shown. Use the ZOOM feature for details.

I try to price my vintage items fairly – I want them to find appreciative new homes. If you LOVE an item, but think it is a little out of your range, convo me with an offer and I will see what I can do.

I proudly use, mostly, recycled packing materials. If you have an issue with that, please convo me at purchase.
