Handpainted 40s wooden round (?) salad bowl with base is 11 ½ X 10 ½ and painted with a fruit and squash motif and is losing some paint inside and more outside. I have several of these bowls – some just bowls and some have the mount in the middle for the nut cracker and picks but although they are all turned on a lathe, none are symmetrically round. They are all oval – why and how? Lost in the mists of time I guess. The other interesting thing is, while they look like wood and are underneath the paint, they are painted with fake graining both in and out. It’s really good work but it’s fake.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Payment - I accept PayPal, money orders, certified or bank checks, and personal checks (cleared). No items will be shipped until payment is made and cleared. Sometimes, I might even be open to trades but I will specify that in the item description or after looking at the kinds of things in my store, you have something you think I couldn't resist.

Returns & exchanges

Returns - Returns are accepted within 14 days if items are in "as sent" condition. Return postage is the responsibility of the buyer and there is a 10% restocking fee. Refunds will be money paid back. I describe condition of items very carefully and provide lots of pictures. If you are not sure about something, ask questions or for more pix. Don't bid unless you plan to buy. There are no returns on books due to their low price.

Shipping policies

I ship everything via USPS except for large items unless a different means is requested by the customer. For any large items that will fit, I recommend Greyhound. They're pretty cheap and go everywhere. I also allow local pickup if you're close or don't trust freight services. Until I get lots of stuff stocked in my store, I will only be shipping to continental US. Once I get that under control, I will ship anywhere in the world. I'll keep you posted.
Items will be shipped within 3 days barring delay for blizzards etc. (usually not in July altho it's happened before). Tracking is available if you want to pay for it.

Additional policies

Discounts - Discounts on shipping (or if you buy lots of things - on price) are given on multiple items shipped to the same address.

Insurance - Mandatory on items over $20 - I have found to my dismay, the PO can break anything and other shipping services such as UPS are even more adept. It is, however, up to you and if you want it same day UPS or FedEx, I will send it if you want to pay for it and insure it. I don't recommend it. On items less than $20, insurance is up to you. I will refund money if you can convince me it never showed. No one has scammed me yet - don't be the first or I will set my cats on you.
