I list measurements for my items in my product descriptions. If you have questions about additional measurements, please convo me and I will be happy to give you those measurements.
If you have any problems with your order, please contact me and I'll do my best to resolve it.
I accept PayPal, credit card payments through Direct Checkout and US Postal money orders. I will accept personal checks, but will wait 10 business days after I deposit the check before I ship your item(s).
If you are short of funds but have found that 'special' item(s), a layaway plan can be arranged. Basic terms are 25% down (including shipping) - nonrefundable - to hold the item. The balance must be paid off within one month (unless prior arrangements have been made) or the entire payment will be forfeited. I prefer to set it up with no more than two additional payments but this is negotiable. Payments can be made either via Paypal or Direct Checkout. Once the item is completely paid for, it will be shipped. Should you wish to use the layaway plan, contact me before making the purchase so that layaway payment dates can be arranged. The minimum purchase amount on a layaway is $100, and there will be an additional 5% charged for this service.
Indiana sales tax added to all purchases by Indiana residents.
OVERNIGHT REQUESTS - PLEASE CHECK BACK FREQUENTLY IF YOU WANT YOUR ITEM SHIPPED AS QUICKLY AS YOU SAY YOU DO! I WILL NOT SHIP UNLESS ADDITIONAL POSTAGE IS PURCHASED - WITH YOUR OKAY FOR THE AMOUNT.
Shipping: I use First Class, Priority Mail, Media Mail, Parcel Post and UPS for domestic shipping, and First Class International, unless requested and paid otherwise, for international.
*Attention International Customers! Buyer is responsible for all duties and customs fees. I am not responsible for import taxes, tariffs and fees for importing our products into your country. You must pay all fees levied by your country on your purchase yourself. By completing your purchase, you accept that responsibility. Contact your country's customs/import office for more information on rules, regulations and limits imposed by your country, prior to purchasing.
I will not change the value of the contents or mark packages as "gift" to satisfy your customs limitations. Mis-stating the type or value of a package is a federal offense. If you are buying multiple items, I will work with you on the best way to split them up to satisfy those requirements and to minimize shipping costs.
**UK Customers: Your threshold for paying VAT (20%) is only £15! In addition the post office charge £8 for the transaction. This is your responsibility and is not, in any way, related to postage (adding extra postage will not pay these fees and please understand there is no way I can pay these taxes, in advance, on your behalf).
Refunds and Exchanges
Since my items are vintage, it means that they are old and they will have some wear. I do my very best to note any major flaws in them. However, it is possible that an item may have a small flaw that has accidentally been overlooked. I will offer a refund only if an item has been obviously misrepresented. Returns of this nature will be accepted within 7 days. Refunds will be for the item only and will not include a refund for shipping.
Thank you for shopping at ByTheWayside!
