Payment is expected immediately upon purchase via Paypal. If you're cash-strapped at any given time but absolutely have to have something in my shop, I am happy to reserve it for you for UP TO ONE WEEK (7 DAYS). After that time, if you have not purchased it, it will be released for general sale.
PACKING: I have been selling online for more than 13 years. I pack all items in the fashion I would want them packed if I were purchasing them.

DELIVERY CONFIRMATION: I require MANDATORY delivery confirmation on all domestic packages. This charge has already been figured into each item's shipping cost. I CANNOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR PACKAGES THAT FAIL TO ARRIVE BUT WHICH THE TRACKING NUMBERS INDICATE HAVE BEEN DELIVERED…THAT'S WHY I USE MANDATORY DELIVERY CONFIRMATION. But I will do everything in my power to help you track your package.

DOMESTIC SHIPPING: Within the United States, I ship all media (books, records, tapes, etc.) via media mail UNLESS BUYER EXPLICITLY REQUESTS A DIFFERENT METHOD. I ship all other merchandise via first class mail or priority mail, depending on weight and size (anything over 13 oz. cannot go first class and must ship priority). I am happy to combine multiple purchases into as few packages as possible. If you have any specific shipping method you'd like to use, please request a price quote from me before purchasing the item.

FOREIGN SHIPPING: I ship all foreign orders via First Class International or the next-cheapest, if that's not available UNLESS BUYER EXPLICITLY REQUESTS A DIFFERENT SHIPPING METHOD. BECAUSE OF A RECENT RISE IN FOREIGN POSTAL FRAUD AND THEFT…AND BECAUSE I CANNOT TRACK FOREIGN ORDERS ONCE THEY LEAVE THE U.S.…I CANNOT AND WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY FOREIGN ORDERS THAT FAIL TO ARRIVE OR ARRIVE OPENED. The exception to THE FIRST PART of this is if the buyer chooses to use Express shipping, which requires a signature and provides me with a tracking number. THIS METHOD OF SHIPPING IS ALMOST PROHIBITIVELY EXPENSIVE. If you would like to use it, however, please email me before making your purchase, and I'll invoice you the proper amount.

INSURANCE: Buyers in the U.S. may purchase optional insurance on items under $50 for $1.50 (email me before you purchase the item). MANDATORY INSURANCE for items over $50 has already been figured into those items' shipping charges. I CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR DAMAGE INCURRED DURING SHIPPING ON ITEMS THE BUYER HAS CHOSEN NOT TO INSURE. Buyers outside the U.S. interested in insuring an item of ANY VALUE must email before making a purchase to get a price quote. Foreign insurance is obviously more expensive than domestic insurance, but usually only nominally so.

CUSTOMS: When filling out customs forms, I accurately state the description and value of the item(s) in the package. I WILL NOT FALSIFY CUSTOMS DOCUMENTS…SO DON'T EVEN ASK!
Refunds and Exchanges
There are only two times I will offer a refund:

1) When an item arrives with damage or flaws that I failed to notice and thus failed to list in the item's description.

2) When an item arrives damaged for some reason that can be DIRECTLY ATTRIBUTED to mishandling on my part (i.e., if I use Band-Aids to tape up your box). I WILL NOT grant refunds for damage incurred as a result of postal mishandling. I will, however, assist in any way possible in filing an insurance claim with the post office for insured items.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am a consummate collector, thrifter, estate saler, garage saler, etc. I have scads of merch that is not up on the site. I also deal in LPs, though not too heavily on Etsy. If you're ever looking for anything in particular, drop me a line and see if I have it. If you want to send me a want list, I'm happy to keep my eyes peeled for any items you're seeking.
