Thank you very much- item as described!
The thrill of the hunt keeps me in business.
I've been dealing in antiques and collectibles since the early 90s and started selling online in 1996. I have maintained a 100% positive feedback rating for well over 6000 online transactions on a variety of selling venues (our paths may have crossed on eBay, Ruby Lane, or on my website).
Sellers and buyers/collectors can learn a lot from each other, and I'm always happy to share any information I have about the items I sell - don't hesitate to ask.
Feel free to drop me a line if there's something in particular you are looking for, I never know what I'll come across in my travels. Happy hunting!
I used to sell handmade buttons and magnets on Etsy under the name EclecticSelections.
I'm an avid treasure hunter and the woman behind Uncommon Eye. I'm glad you stopped by!
Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about my items or shop policies. I am flexible and easy to work with, and I want your shopping experience to be as pleasurable as possible.
All of my items come from non-smoking homes.
I use BIODEGRADABLE packing peanuts - not Styrofoam - in 90% of the packages I ship - they dissolve in water!
I will only reserve items for 24 hours, although I'm willing to negotiate a longer payment window if you want to buy but can't pay immediately (please convo me to discuss prior to placing an order).
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
- Money Order
I prefer Paypal payments or payments through Direct Checkout, but also accept payments by snail mail - money orders (including International money orders in U.S. dollars from non-U.S. buyers), and personal checks in U.S. dollars drawn from U.S. banks. I wait for personal checks to clear my bank before I ship - this generally takes 4-5 business days after the deposit date.
Prompt payments are greatly appreciated.
Shipping fees vary greatly depending on shipping distance. Sometimes I can ship for less than the rate quoted in the listings (especially with multiple item orders).
If you pay the shipping cost quoted in the listing and the actual shipping cost (postage and actual packing cost) is less by $1.50 or more, I will refund the difference via Paypal or Direct Checkout. No fees are charged by Paypal or Etsy when you receive a refund of this sort.
I always try to ship within three business days of receiving your cleared payment, and I often ship the same or next day. If shipping is delayed for any reason, I'll be sure to let you know.
Please let me know if you have any specific shipping requests, i.e. cheapest rate possible, fastest in-transit time possible, delayed shipping if you are going to be out of town, etc.
I choose from a variety of United States Postal Service shipping methods (Priority, Parcel Post, First Class, Media Mail) depending on the size, weight, destination, and nature of the item(s) being shipped. I also occasionally use UPS shipping for very large, expensive, or extremely fragile items.
All items are sent insured against loss or damage. I use U-Pic insurance through Etsy shipping and have found they are very responsive to claims. In the event that your order does run into trouble and we need to file a claim, you will be asked to fill out an online form verifying the loss/damage.
I will do whatever I can to help you if a package gets lost in transit. Thankfully, this rarely happens. Each U.S. shipment automatically has a delivery confirmation number which may be used to track the package.
I am an expert packer and use sturdy, quality shipping materials in efforts to ensure that your items travel safely. I use BIODEGRADABLE packing peanuts in nearly all of my shipments - they dissolve in water!
Non-U.S. Buyers: I DO ship Internationally, but not if an item is large or fragile. Please contact me if you are interested in a particular item and I will check on the shipping fees and adjust the listing page accordingly so that you may make your purchase. Please note: I am not responsible for any VAT/Customs fees that may be related to to your order nor will I help you in illegally circumventing these fees if they are applicable to you. Falsifying customs forms with a low declared value or having an item marked as "gift" in order to avoid customs fees is classified as Mail Fraud and is a felony.
Refunds and Exchanges
Please contact me if you are not satisfied with your purchase. Do NOT file a claim with Paypal as this will DELAY your refund (once a claim is filed, PayPal can take a few weeks to "review" a claim and during that time the funds are inaccessible - I will refund as soon as I receive the returned item in original condition if no claim has been filed, otherwise you'll have to wait for Paypal to process things). I promise it is always easier to deal with me than with Paypal!
Refunds will be processed after contact is made by the buyer and the returned item is received by me in good order. Only the cost of the item is refunded, not the shipping costs unless some other agreement has been reached.
If you have any questions or concerns about your item(s) upon receipt, please contact me via email or etsy convo. I include a card with my contact information in every package.
