Item as described, super fast shipment, AAA+++ to Etsy
We courteously ask you to send any and all inquiries regarding my shop or purchases to my conversations mailbox on Etsy.
Accepted payment methods
I ONLY accept PayPal and ship to your VERIFIED PayPal address. No exceptions.
READ THIS BEFORE YOU BUY!!! TERMS OF SALE!!!
If you pay via PayPal eCheck, I won't ship out your item until the payment clears!
We inspect all items thoroughly and try to provide a very detailed account of any notable imperfections in each description -- which will be included in the listing. We use a smoke-free storage space, and please do always refer to the listing details and images.
TAKE THE TIME TO READ OUR DESCRIPTIONS TO BE CERTAIN YOU ARE INFORMED OF YOUR ITEM *BEFORE* YOU PLACE YOUR ORDER!!
AGAIN, IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS -- PLEASE ASK!!!
YOUR ITEMS WILL BE SHIPPED **UP TO A WEEK** FROM THE PURCHASE AND/OR PAYMENT CLEARANCE DATE. I USUALLY SHIP THEM OUT SOONER, BUT THE LIFE OF A FULL TIME STUDENT HAS WAY TOO MANY DEMANDS =( I GO TO THE POST OFFICE TWICE A WEEK AT THE MAXIMUM DUE TO MY SCHEDULE.
Honestly though, I try and ship within three days, but heads up to that disclaimer in the event that it takes a while. Even if I do print out a pre-paid label, someone will have to schedule for a pick up and I'm at school during those hours. I would still need to drop them off at the Post Office.
I don't ship "on demand" unless you want to make arrangements to send a parcel using Express Mail or EMS/DHL/FedEx/UPS.
We use recycled packaging material to be more environmentally conscious and pass the savings along to you. If you are sending an item as a gift or want it to be sent in new mailers, please send us a message and we will accommodate as best as we can.
Tracking Information Will Instantly Be Provided For You on PayPal and Etsy via Updates and Notifications.
ALL ITEMS THAT SHIP WORLDWIDE NEED TO BE SENT WITH USPS PRIORITY MAIL INTERNATIONAL - THIS IS NON-NEGOTIABLE!!!
The USPS is reliable, but nevertheless, we have to point out the following -- First Class Standard Postage is WITHOUT ANY PROTECTION AND TRACKING. IF ANYTHING HAPPENS -- IF THE PARCEL IS MISPLACED OR LOSS OR UNDELIVERED -- REGARDLESS OF PROOF OF MAILING, I WANT US BOTH TO BE PROTECTED TO ENSURE THE ITEM'S TIMELY DELIVERY AND A SEAMLESS TRANSACTION.
The Shipping Calculator on the USPS Website Should Give You An Approximate Price Quote. However, That Does Not Include Costs Like Bubble Wrap, Protective Mailers, Boards, ETC.
Import duties, taxes, fees, tariffs, VAT, and other charges ARE NOT included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are YOUR responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. There are also shipping prohibitions and restrictions which are the buyer's responsibility.
Refunds and Exchanges
We are not able to offer a refund policy at this time. We are a small business and are not like big corporations or a "real" mail order company.
Fees such as shipping, insurance, fees/taxes/duties, etc are also the buyer's responsibility.
Any damages or losses incurred by the buyer's choice of not shipping with insurance is of their responsibility.
Additional policies and FAQs
Can you please tell me more about the condition of the item?
Please read the Terms of Sale carefully regarding Item Condition on the Original Listing since it is extremely detailed and specified. Also, we ask our buyers to refer to the listing regarding any and all details pertinent to the product up for sale.
Do you offer international shipping?
Yes, we offer international shipping for our worldwide customers. Please message us regarding international shipping PRIOR to the sale so we can get back to you with a quote. Also: Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility.
Why won't you ship to my country?
Due to rules regarding prohibited items or shipping to excluded countries in general -- this is either against the law or at the seller's discretion and is non-negotiable.
How much is shipping to my country?
Please refer to the USPS website regarding shipping internationally for an accurate price quote not including nominal handling charges such as mailing containers, boards, packing peanuts, or any supplies used in sending your item.
I noticed that you only ship items outside of North America using International Flat Rate shipping. Is there any way you can post with a cheaper shipping option?
We do not ship overseas without using USPS Priority Mail since we need to make sure that the item gets to you in a safe and timely manner. No exceptions. First Class Mail International shipping takes up to three weeks and is not the safest option. First Class International also doesn't allow insurance options and claims.
Can you declare the item I won on the Customs form as a "Gift" so I don't have to pay duties/VAT/taxes?
Really? Don't even ask.
A buyer asks you to provide false information on a customs declaration form is asking us to do something ILLEGAL.
Do you combine shipping?
Yes, we do combined shipping on Domestic and International transactions. However, this is at the discretion of the seller depending on the item(s) and may not apply to invoice totals past $50 USD (excluding shipping and handling costs).
What other methods of payment do you accept other than PayPal?
Sorry, but PayPal is the only method of payment we accept. Thank you for your interest.
Do you offer returns for items shipped overseas?
We do not offer returns period. Even more so offer an international refund policy due to the taxes, shipping costs, duties, VATs involved in worldwide shipping as well as any additional forms and paperwork concerning your item in question. We ask that you please read all guidelines and terms of sale prior to check out and bidding. Thank you.
What if my question is not listed here? Can I still contact you?
Yes, you can still contact us if your question is not on the listing or described sufficiently in the pictures. It's just a fact that we try to provide an extremely accurate and detailed listing. Please read everything before contacting, we probably listed any and all information you could possibly know about that item.
What does (garment specification / item related abbreviation) mean?
Please refer to Google or Wikipedia regarding any industry definitions (such as garment specifications) and terms (example: photo postcard). We aim to describe everything so please refer to the auction listing. Thank you.
Thanks for your consideration and for looking at our auction.
