Coincidental Discovery ® ---Where Coincidence Discovers You in Return

---All the things have stories to tell. It is simply about themselves or where they have been, who they have been acquainted with, passed on to or what they might have seen. Of course, they do not literally tell us all of their stories. It is for us to find out more about them through coincidental discoveries or otherwise. ---

Payment
Paypal preferred. Different payment options may be available; please contact before your purchase.

If applied, customs fees, charges and taxes are the buyer's responsibility and these are not included in the purchase price or shipping fees. Please contact your local customs office for these charges before buying.

CANCELLATION FEES: I have buyers who wish to cancel transactions from time to time because I do not declare the value of items falsely to customs, or other miscellaneous reasons. In case of cancellation by a buyer, I require 15% of total sale price as cancellation fees. This fees will be subtracted from the full refund amount, if already paid, and the buyer must follow the instructions which will be provided by the seller for a full and complete cancellation; these include, but not limited to, additionally "purchasing" a listing of "cancellation fees." This "purchasing a listing of cancellation fees" will not require additional payment, if already paid for the purchased item. The regular Etsy sales fees will be subtracted and paid from the total cancellation fees.

RESERVATION: I will reserve an item for a week with a non-refundable down payment of the half of the total listed price* at the time of reserving the item. The rest of the half of the total listed price will be paid within the reserved duration. If the remaining half is not paid until the end of the week, it is deemed cancelled and the already-paid down payment of the first half of the total listed price will not be refunded. Please contact to make a down payment of the first half of the total listed price to reserve an item. It should be noted that there will not be any cancellation fees in the case of a failed transaction after the first half of non refundable down payment is already paid. * Reserve down payment price will vary in discretion of the seller.

STORE CREDIT: The non refundable down payment can be used as a store credit up to the amount not exceeding to $400, excluding any portion of shipping fees (thus, shipping fees need be additionally and independently paid via Paypal or US Postal Money Order or other methods agreed by the seller). And such store credit can only be used in ONE single transaction, including multiple items to be purchased in one single transaction.
Shipping
The item will be shipped from U.S.A.. The buyer is required to pay the appropriate shipping fees. Signature confirmation / delivery confirmation is required. The shipping will be done within 10-15 business days of confirming the cleared payment (usually within the first 7 days with some exceptions).

I am regretful to announce that due to the continuing harassment and insulting emails, I do not ship to China (and other area said in the listings) at this moment. All purchases with a shipping address in prohibited locations will be cancelled subject to the cancellation fees (See Cancellation Fees in Payment Policy).

Please note that customs in some countries would hold the item for inspection as long as 4 weeks or more; contact your local customs for the expected inspection duration. Due to the natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions and political reasons, the delivery to some countries may be gravely delayed.

If applied, the buyer is responsible for custom's Duty, charges, fees and taxes as these are not included in the purchase price or shipping fees. These fees are the buyer's responsibilities; please contact your local customs office for these fees before buying. I will not falsely declare the value of the purchased items to customs.

Some items are packed and shipped specifically by UPS with insurance and signature confirmation; it does not accept P.O. Box address. Specific shipping carriers are likely to be mentioned in each listing if it is different from USPS. Please contact before your purchase if you are not sure about this. (Some will be by FedEx.)

For lost package and damages items, all necessary procedures must be taken in order to receive insurance by carriers. The seller will not be held personally responsible for the lost/damaged item during and by delivery or delayed delivery but the seller does his/her best in contacting carriers for lost packages and help filing insurance claims after the lost-item/damaged-item claims are determined legitimate and not fraudulent. The buyer will be required to provide clear and detailed images of the damaged items to the seller as well as to the carrier in some instances. The buyer will be required to bring and present the packages and the damaged items to the carrier as well for an investigation. The buyer is deemed abode to all the instructions given by the seller for necessary investigations and lost-item claims and damaged-item claims for insurance by the time of purchases.

All items are sold as-is. If later claimed the item received by a buyer is a completely different item or there was gross mistakes in descriptions such as the print has a huge hole in the middle throughout the book when advertised excellent, appropriate customer procedures will be taken. Minor inaccuracy in measurements, numbers of pages, and slight foxing and expected wears and tears over age are not considered as gross mistakes in descriptions. Some packing materials like cardboard papers and bubble wraps may be up-cycled and used to secure the item especially, but not limited to, in international shipping. 

If the item returns to the sender due to an authorized person unavailable to receive or any other reasonable reasons, which are not foreseeable at the time of purchase and/or not communicated to the seller by the buyer and/or known by the seller at the time of purchase, the item will only be shipped again with additional payment for the second shipping fees (the same amount of the first shipping fees) and after such fees are paid by the buyer to the seller. The other reasonable reasons here do not include, not limited to, mistake in listed address being wrong/typo, a refusal to accept the package, and moving into a different address and forgot to renew. If the return shipping fees are charged to the seller by the carrier due in the above situation, the buyer is obligated to pay for the return shipping fees with no exception. In any case, the shipping charges will not be refunded if the item is already left the hands of the sender to the carrier.
Refunds and Exchanges
All items are sold as-is, and no return is accepted unless later claimed the item received by a buyer is a completely different item or there was gross mistakes in descriptions such as the print has a huge hole in the middle throughout the book when advertised excellent (the immediate contact to the seller is required) or mutually agreed. In a lost/damaged item case, the insurance claim will be initiated accordingly to carrier's and our policies. Please contact us immediately and save the item and all the packing materials for inspection. The buyer will be required to provide clear and detailed images of the damaged items to the seller as well as to the carrier in some instances. The buyer will be required to bring and present the packages and the damaged items to the carrier for an investigation. We will not accept the pleas by the buyer to have the carrier representatives come to the buyer's location for inspection of the claimed damaged items in order to assure the safe and fair, unbiased investigations.

Please wait for the instructions from the seller. If the item received is not as described or is damaged in shipping and if the seller in working accordance with the carrier and all other necessary authorities determines the claim is legitimate and not fraudulent, the item and the packages need be either 1) brought and presented to the carrier for insurance investigation, in which the item will be kept by the carrier, or 2) shipped back to the seller in the same or equivalent shipping carrier method, tracking and the same insurance. The return shipping fees with insurance and tracking fees will be paid by the buyer. The secure and confirmed seller's receipt of the claimed item is mandatory before proceeding to the full or partial refund. In all and any cases, please wait for the seller's instructions.

If the return shipping fees are charged to the seller by the carrier, the buyer is obligated to pay for the return shipping fees with no exception.

I uphold the right to retrieve any items at any time of the sales for any reason that I see fit.

If the purchased item becomes unavailable due to sales of the same items at elsewhere and despite the seller's best effort in updating all necessary information about the available items, a full refund without cancellation fees and cancelling the transaction will be amicably initiated.

The buyer is deemed abode to all the instructions given by the seller for necessary investigations and lost-item claims and damaged-item claims for insurance by the time of purchases.
