What a great seller! Pat was kind enough to not only communicate a person message as soon as he shipped the magazines, but also described the quality of the magazines perfectly. In fact the quality was better than expected! I would purchase again in a minute and recommend this seller to any friends or family.

I've been an eclectic book collector most of my life and have now reached that stage of life when it's time fo find new homes for my books. I try very hard to describe the books accurately, listing every flaw I can find. All are used so few are perfect, and I personally think that most vintage books are interesting enough to be worth putting up with a few flaws. But when you buy I don't ever want you to be surprised. I once bought a book on line that was described as in excellent condition. It was intended as a gift but when it arrived it was a disaster, damp stained with something brown, wrinkled, torn AARGH! I couldn't possibly have given it as a gift. I won't let that happen to my buyers, I may over-describe small flaws, but you'll know what you're getting. I look forward to having you adopt one of my books, thanks for looking in my store.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
If an item arrives at your home broken you must let me know within 2 days in order for me to file a claim with the shipper. I ask that you send me a photograph of the item and its box. I will refund your full purchase price and shipping if an item is broken in transit.

EU buyers have the right to return products (not food or custom made products) by contacting the seller within 14 days. This 14-day period will start the moment a customer receives a product, rather than at the time he or she purchases it. I am required to issue a refund within 14 days of receiving the returned item or evidence that the item has been shipped back. So if you must return an item please contact me immediately.


When I have shipped an item on time but there is a delay in USPS delivery I can neither foresee nor be responsible for their problems, consequently I can't issue a refund while the package is in the USPS system. When the USPS tells me that they will not deliver your package through some fault of theirs I will issue a refund.

If the USPS indicates that a package has been delivered to the address you provided at the time of your order, I can not issue a refund.


All sales on vintage and custom items must be final, I can not offer refunds, credits or exchanges on these items. All item listings include very detailed information about the item, what it is, it's condition and it's dimensions - to help you make an informed decision before purchasing. Clear concise photos are also included as part of the description. If you are unsure about an item, or unsure if it will work for your application, please ask questions BEFORE purchasing - we are happy to supply you with more information, if needed


Of course we want you to be happy with your purchase! If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us to determine what we can do to make you happy. We will do our best to make sure you are satisfied - customer service is our top priority!
While I want to cover my costs, it is not my intent to make a profit on shipping. I do my best to estimate shipping costs accurately, but sometimes it's off depending upon packing material available at the time. If my shipping cost estimate is more than $1.00 over the actual shipping cost I will credit your account for the difference.

For purchasers with a shipping address is California, I collect and remit California State Sales Tax.
I try to ship the next day after you order. US Shipping will generally be by USPS Media Mail.

Note that magazines or any items containing any form of advertising, while meeting the definition of Media Mail as most of us would define it, do not meet the definition of the Post Office. Therefore they can not be sent media mail, so an item weighing less than 16 ounces will be mailed first class, over 16 ounces will either be mailed Priority or Parcel.


I will ship worldwide - please see the shipping quotes in our listings, or contact me if your location is not listed.

International orders that weigh 4 pounds or less (when packaged) are shipped via USPS International First Class Mail (typically 6-21 days in transit).

Items that weigh more than 4 pounds will be packaged and shipped as economically as possible. If you would like Priority Shipping (almost certainly more expensive unless the item is very heavy, but with 6-10 day delivery) please contact me and let me know.

PLEASE NOTE that any custom fees, duties (tariffs), or taxes are the sole responsibility of the buyer. Because every country has different fees, these charges are NOT included in the shipping charges in our listings. Please contact your local customs office to determine what these fees will be before making your purchase. You may also check to determine any additional fees.
There is no similar reasonably priced international shipping rate, but I will happily ship internationally and will provide international customers with a shipping cost to your location upon request.
