Please pay within 3 days of the close of the auction, or let me know you are sending a check. I must wait until your check clears (about 10 days) until I ship your item. If you are in a rush, use Paypal.I ship the day I receive payment. I offer a shipping discount if you purchase multiple items from me during the same week. You pay the full price of the highest shipping charge, and you will receive a $3.00 discount off the shipping of additional items.
