Thanks for stopping by my store. I've been selling online since 1999 and am just starting to set-up shop here on Etsy and will be adding inventory of mostly vintage tins, other vintage advertising items, and misc. vintage. Please check back again soon for a hopefully larger selection of items!

My goal is to ship promptly, pack well so that your items arrive the same way they left here, and to try to offer the most economical shipping means available. Excess ship charges that exceed $1.00 over the calculated amount will always be refunded to you, either to your Paypal/Google acct. or included in the box if you pay by check or money order.

If you have questions about any item in my store, want more detailed info. about any item or more pics. PLEASE feel free to contact me.

Payment Methods (U.S.): Payments via Paypal, Google Checkout, check, or money order.

Payment Methods - (International): Payments via Paypal or International. Money Order (the version that is payable in U.S. Funds only).

State Tax (7%) will automatically be added to orders from Ohio only.
Ship Methods - U.S.: Most items I sell are lightweight and will be shipped as boxed using 1st Class mail. If you want or need speedier delivery, please contact me about upgrading to Priority Mail before paying for your order and I can adjust the shipping charge accordingly before you pay for your item(s). Also, Insurance on your package is not built-in to the base shipping charge, so if you'd like to insure, please contact me so I can adjust your invoice accordingly before you pay.

Items heavier that 13 ounces or 13 ounces combined weight will ship as Priority Mail (as 1st Class is unavailable at this weight) or via parcel post. Packed items heavier than 2 lbs. may ship more economically as Fedex Ground, and I'll always contact you before shipping to offer you that option.

Delivery Confirmation: All packages are sent with Delivery Confirmation so they can be tracked. The cost of this optional service is already built-in to the shipping costs. Postcards and other "flat" lightweight items are sent without Delivery Confirmation.
Ship Methods - International: Items will ship as International Air Mail (1st Class). Insurance is not an option on this ship method, the package is trackable only to the point of departing the U.S. If you need speedier delivery or want to insure your package in case it gets lost in transit, please contact me prior to payment and I'll let you know what the costs would be.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns: Most items I sell are vintage and in general over 50-years old so aren't in mint "off the shelf" condition. Although I try to describe all flaws or defects in the item description, if I miss something or if you feel an item is mis-represented, please feel free to return it for a refund of your purchase price (provided it arrives back here in the same condition as sent). I'll kick-in the shipping to return the item as well in these cases.

Many tins, cans and bottles of "old" products that you may buy in my store still have the original product-contents inside. Although every description states "sold as a collectible and not for use of the old product contents", I've had returns because the customer DID buy the old item to actually use the contents and wanted to return it upon finding the contents were dried-out or whatever. IN THESE CASES, I will refund the purchase price only and ask that you absorb the ship charges both ways.
Additional policies and FAQs
Loss or Damage: All items are sent packed in bubble-wrap and foam pellets and except for paper items, are always boxed to prevent crushing. I suggest you buy insurance to protect yourself if you are purchasing something expensive or very fragile so that you can be reimbursed by the post office for whatever happens during transit. As mentioned above, the cost of insurance IS NOT built-in to my shipping charges, YOU MUST SPECIFICALLY REQUEST IT BEFORE I SHIP. To date, the Post Office has been great and in approx. 1000 U.S. shipments has not lost or damaged one package, but unfortunately, I cannot be responsible for items that don't arrive at all or arrive damaged.
