I am pleased to now offer a LAYAWAY purchase option in which you may take 60 days to pay for an item! Please send me an email if you are interested in discussing LAYAWAY.

If you are seriously interested in something you see, MAKE ME A REASONABLE OFFER via etsy email so we can discuss it. Questions are always welcome.

I've been selling rare, one-of-kind finds online for 10 years and treasure hunting for over 30 years. I strive to give accurate desciptions and share my "art" photos of my wares. I welcome questions and comments from customer's browsing my listings and nothing is more satisfying than hearing about a customer's satisfaction when their treasure arrives in the mail.

Maryland residents will pay 6% MD Sales Tax.
Shipping
Items are shipped within one business day of receipt of cleared payment unless otherwise stated in the item description. Items are sent via the US Postal Service unless specified in the item description. I send buyers shipment confirmation emails with package tracking numbers when an item has been shipped.

USA Shipping: Shipping fees cover USPS First Class Mail Parcel for item under 13 ounces and USPS Priority Mail or UPS Ground for items over 13 ounces. All items include Delivery Confirmation, and for shipments over $250 USD, Signature Confirmation. Overnight Shipping is available for an additional fee. Insurance is optional but highly recommended.

Domestic & International Shipping Insurance: I have been shipping items to customers for over 20 years and pack items with great care. Shipping insurance is optional but recommended for all items to cover against damage in shipment, loss, or theft. The buyer is responsible for the item once it is in the hand of the shipper. Buyers who purchase insurance are reponsible for filing claims with the carrier in the event of damage, loss, or theft.

International Shipping: Shipping fees cover US First Class Mail International for items under 4 lbs and valued less than $250 USD. Please note that NO INSURANCE and NO TRACKING NUMBER are available for this service. USPS Priority Mail International and USPS Express Mail International available for an additional fee. For item over 4 lbs and under $250 USD, shipping will be USPS Postal Service Priority Mail International which includes package tracking number. For all items valued at over $250 USD, USPS Express Mail shipping with insurance will be used. Insurance on USPS Priority Mail International is optional and highly recommended. International buyers are responsible for an item once it has been shipped along with all associated customs, duties, and VAT fees. International buyers are responsible for knowing customs regulations regarding import of allowable items. Item will be sent as "merchandise" and value will be declared on customs forms. Please do not ask me to ship as a "gift" or declare a lower value as this is illegal.
Refunds and Exchanges
ALL SALES ARE FINAL. Items are sold "as described, as shown". Please note the condition detailed in each item description and photos before purchase as items are not returnable. I strive to give accurate descriptions, measurements, and clear photos of items. The items I offer are vintage or antique and thus have been loved and handled by others and will have wear. I welcome and encourage questions about an item before a customer makes the commitment to purchase an object in its "as shown" state. Refunds will only be given, at my discretion, in the event of gross misrepresentation of an item and upon return, at the buyer's expense, of the item in the original state in which I shipped it.

Insurance: Shipping insurance is optional but recommended for all items to cover against damage in shipment, loss, or theft.
