|Welcome to my eBay store. I sell local antiques, collectibles, new old stock and the unusual. You may see glassware, hardware, furniture, toys, books, cars, vehicle parts, military, railroad, crocks, jewelry, etc. Please add us to your list of favorite sellers and check back often. Godspeed!|
PAYMENT: Please use PayPal (an eBay company) when checking out. This is eBay's preferred method of payment. If you do not have PayPal then please contact me for other options. If you are picking up an item you must contact me for the payment method before picking up.
SHIPPING: I ship by USPS only! That is the United States Post Office. I use Priority, Parcel Select, First Class and Media mail. I will not use other shipping companies, so do not ask! If the item is too large for shipping it will be listed as "Pick Up Only". On items being picked up it will be the responsibility of the Buyer to work with my schedule or arrange for a shipping company to do so.
For International Buyers: If my listing does not show International Shipping that is because it is a possible restricted item into your country or restricted by eBay. I do not make the rules and if it is a questionable item it will not be offered internationally, sorry. Large items and most glassware will not be offered either. I ship by USPS International First Class mail (4 lbs. or less) and USPS Priority International mail.
I will combine items for shipping when possible to reduce costs. However, combining does not always reduce the cost especially on glassware. Insurance is included in the handling charges for breakable items. If the item you receive is damaged during shipping, please contact me right away and keep all original packing material and the box.
If you have never been an eBay Seller and shipped items, it would take to long to explain the hard work and cost of supplies to securely and safely get the item to you. Shipping costs must include material and handling fees. Making sure the item is packaged correctly increases cost a little, but what is the point if you receive damaged or broken items!
IMPORTANT: I am on the east coast. The west coast is very far away as is Texas, North Dakota, etc. After a box exceeds 12 x 12 x 12 inches or depending on the weight, cost to many locations is expensive. If you think the shipping cost stated in my listing is high and want a discount, please call the U.S. Post Office and ask them if they will give you one!
PS: Please make sure you are putting the right zip code into the eBay calculator when calculating costs to your location.
ABOUT ME: I am located in western Maryland. I purchase local items from auctions, estates, garage sales, etc. for re-sale. Most of the time my items are not new. I do offer some NOS (new old stock) items from time to time. Most of my items are vintage, antique, collectible and most of the time they are used items. Please keep "USED" in mind when bidding or buying. I will always try to provide good clear pictures all the way around an item and describe any condition issues I see. There is no point in rating the condtion of items by a number scale, percentage or saying it is fair, good or excellent; as my opinion of the condition will not be the same as yours. Therefore I will list all deficencies or issues that I see or find. I will do my best to not mis-lead in my titles or descriptions. If I am not sure or it is my opinion I will tell you that. Please look at all pictures and please ask questions if you are not sure. If you are still not sure about an item then please pass.
CONTACT ME: Any problems at all with the item you receive, with tracking or if the item was damaged in shipping, PLEASE CONTACT ME (not eBay) right away. Please contact/email me with any questions or problems through the eBay system only! This is for both your and my security.
TERMS OF SALE: I do not offer returns unless noted. You are covered by the "eBay Money Back Guarantee" if you receive an item that is "not as described" in the listing. My items "Sell As Is".
If you have problems with tracking or a damaged item I will of course assist in anyway I can. If I make a mistake and put the wrong item in the box or leave something out I will make it right. If I list a blue item and you buy a blue item but a red item shows up I will make it right.
What I will not make right is the fact that you did not read the description, look at the many clear pictures or take the time to ask me a question before you bid or pushed the "Buy It Now" button and then just changed your mind. BE SURE BEFORE YOU BID OR BUY!
Also, I do not need eBay involved in my relationship with my customers. You treat me right and I will treat you right. My feedback speaks volumes and I will continue to be a professional and upright eBay Seller!
Since eBay removed insurance options from Buyers, no worries! That is why I use USPS Priority mail for most items as it comes with $50 free coverage. If the item value is more than $50 and breakable then insurance costs are included in the handling charges. Also on more expensive items you may be required to sign for the item as I use "Signature Confirmation". Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Please contact me, not eBay, right away if an item is damaged in shipping!
