Welcome to my shop. I have been collecting unusual and interesting items for many years. I love the treasure hunt and avidly attend sales and auctions on a regular basis. You will find mostly antique, vintage or unusual items. Everything is usually previously enjoyed. I make an effort to offer only items in nice used to very fine or like new condition. Sometimes I may find something really neat that has damage or needs restoration and the description will explain this.

The nature of what I offer opens up the avenue of flaws and I will make every effort to describe any flaws or damage. If I should find an overlooked or unmentioned flaw while packing to ship I will contact you before shipping the item. If you should receive something where I have missed a flaw please contact me right away. I go over things well but it is always possible something got missed and I would not do this intentionally. Some items may need cleaning or repairs and this will be stated.

As the items offered come from sales and auctions it is possible there has been exposure to smoke, pets, etc.. The area these items come from is very rural, the houses are commonly heated with oil, kerosene, wood and/or gas. I do have pets and a smoker lives in my home.

It is important that the packaging for shipping protect the item. In an attempt to keep prices down I reuse packing and have come up with some rather creative ways of packing so your package may not be the prettiest but hopefully has arrived safely.

I sincerely appreciate the recipient contacting me to let me know the items have arrived safely and all is well. Or if there are any problems please contact me.

My desire is to be assured that the buyer has received what was described and pictured and that they are pleased with their purchase. I am always open to questions and comments, communication is important. If you should have additional information on something that is listed or find where I am mistaken or have given incorrect information please contact me. I welcome any information.

Cancellations must be requested within 4 hours after purchase. We have a daily run to the Post Office and it is generally done in the morning so I try to have packages ready to go first thing in the morning. It is possible a package MAY be posted and gone within a few hours of payment.

New York State sales tax charged is 8.875% to New York State residents. If you are in a district with a lower rate the overage will be returned. New York requires tax on shipping and handling charges.
Shipping is through the United States Postal Service and is generally within 24 hours unless there is an outstanding question or an unforseen problem.

Items are packed carefully. Insurance and signed for delivery is available at an extra charge. If you need or would like the insurance, signed for delivery or any other extra services please advise before making payment and the charges will be added to the shipping charges or if payment has been made I will invoice you for any extra services you request. Payment for these must be made before item is shipped. I do not accept responsibility for damage, loss or theft once it has been delivered to the carrier.

Small items and items shipped flat rate will usually have a flat shipping charge stated to the US and maybe Canada. If there is no charge stated to Canada please contact me for a rate.

I do not quote international shipping on the listings as a general rule. I will ship internationally but please contact me with destination address for a shipping quote. I do not accept responsibility for damage or loss of international shipments. If you are interested in an item feel free to contact me I will determine if it is feasible to ship to your area and the charges for same.

Shipping charges are dependent on size, weight and destination. Until I know where it is going it is not possible to list an exact charge on some items. Items are calculated to the farthest US distance from zipcode 14101 for shipping. This will be stated in the listing with the amount of return on overages. The shipping calculated is the most economical with USPS. If you need something in a hurry please let me know, there could be extra shipping charges.

Combined shipping is available whenever possible. Some pieces may not ship well with others, ie; cast iron and fine china. If you purchase and pay for more than one item I will make every effort to combine them and return the excess shipping charges. Or contact me for a quote. Items being calculated for combined shipping will be reserved for 24 hours.
