Payment is expected to be initiated within three business days after purchase. I use the US Postal Service for shipping. I do my best to ship your order within two business days after payment is received and sooner if possible. I pack carefully and insure valuable items, which is included in the shipping cost. Please use the shipping calculator to determine your postage cost. I will gladly combine items for shipping, when practical. When purchasing more than one item from my eBay store, after check out, please "request total" so that I can send you an invoice showing the combined shipping cost. Please wait for the invoice before you pay. International Buyers: I ship only by USPS Priority Mail International. Please check shipping rules and regulations for your country at USPS.com. Thank-you for visiting my eBay store!
