General Policy

We use www.usps.com to calculate shipping, and will combine shipping whenever possible. We are NOT responsible for the amount of time USPS takes to deliver your item once it has been received into the USPS system. We add minimal handling charges to our items. You will receive notification of shipment with tracking information directly from PayPal. If payment is not received within 3 days an automatic unpaid item case will be opened on eBay. If you need additional time to pay for an item, please request this BEFORE you place a bid. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions, or would like additional information or photographs on any item. Please visit our eBay Store, and add us to your favorite sellers list! All items are from a smoke free environment! Sales Tax (current rate) will apply to all buyers in the State of California. If you are outside the United States please contact us before bidding so we can give you an accurate shipping quote. INTERNATIONAL BIDDERS PLEASE NOTE: WE ONLY ACCEPT PAY PAL IN USD! WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SHIPPING DELAYS CAUSED BY CUSTOMS. All Customs, fees, and taxes are the buyer’s responsibility and ARE NOT INCLUDED in Shipping or handing fees. Please check with your countries customs before bidding/buying. ***HOLIDAY SHIPPING*** Please note that delivery times take longer on or around ANY postal holiday, especially winter holidays. Take this into account when bidding our purchasing – we will not guarantee packages will be delivered before a holiday. We are NOT responsible for the amount of time USPS takes to deliver your item once it has been received into their system.

Holiday Shipping

It is the holiday season again, so PLEASE be patient with your shipment.  We get your packages to the Post Office the SAME day or the NEXT day after we have received/verified your payment.  Because of the increased activity during the holidays, the Post Office sometimes takes quite a bit longer to deliver packages, regardless of the shipping time they estimate.  If you are having problems tracking or locating a package, PLEASE contact us and we will help you get the information you need.  If you are bidding on a holiday gift, please consider shipping time when choosing how you wish to receive your package.

IMPORTANT SHIPPING NOTE:  Media Rate Items – In past holiday seasons, we have had a number of Media Rate packages take up to 27 days to arrive at their destinations.  PLEASE keep this in mind when choosing how you wish to have your package sent.  Once we deliver your item to the Post Office, it is totally out of our hands, and we have NO way to speed up the delivery.  Media rate is extremely slow, and the LAST priority at the Post Office, including updating the tracking information on their web site.  Around ANY holidays, this process is expected to take even longer.  Media rate postage (only available for a select number of items) is the most reasonably priced postage, but can cause quite a headache, so please be patient.  We will help you track your package to the best of our abilities.

 

About Us
WHERE DID IT COME FROM? In early 2016, we began clearing out our father's 1500 square foot warehouse that has been used to store a seemingly infinite number of items since 1970. Our family owned a military surplus store in the 1970s, and he purchased surplus in bulk at Department of Defense Auctions from local Military Bases (Alameda, Mare Island, and Hamilton). All inventories that weren’t sold when the store closed (circa 1977) were stored in this warehouse. He had accumulated many tools such as wrenches - a large number of 1-1/4" and larger that were used for ship building, CASES of fasteners, screws, nuts, washers, etc., most are aviation and nautical, general military surplus including clothing, patches, flight suits, flight helmets, and thousands of miscellaneous items. The collection includes a very large number of naval block and tackle (wood frames with iron sheaves and hooks, painted battleship grey, with single, double and triple sheave sizes), some helicopter and airplane parts (mostly hydraulic actuators/servos, some clamps and small connectors), and other random items such as office supplies, medical devices, small boat props, glassware, dishware, and "DANGER MINES" signs from the early 1950s just to name a few. Most of the military surplus was made and manufactured in the 1950s and 1960s and much of it is still in the original packaging with dates and part numbers. Our father purchased most of these items by the pallet, so the volume is overwhelming. In fact, the warehouse was packed to the rafters with boxes when we started. He did not exclusively buy military surplus; he bought the inventory from many local business that were closing their doors, such as a lamp company, a record store, and a number of book stores. This huge warehouse has slowly been filled with other random items purchased over the years, so we have countless glass lamp shades, vintage metal (mainly brass) lamp parts, and boxes and boxes and BOXES of books and LPs which we had already been selling online since 2007. We have worked extremely hard to whittle down the inventory to a manageable amount, so we are now, finally, able to slowly start putting some items up for sale. We will describe the condition and provenance of these items to the best of our ability and include multiple photos with every listing. Please see each photo for closer details and overall condition of each of our items. PLEASE ask questions - we are happy to provide additional information/photos upon request. Any/all cleaning/restoration/repair (if necessary) is the responsibility of the buyer.
USPS Information

One of the seller eBay “star ratings” is for shipping time.  We hope our buyers understand that this means how long it took US to take your package to the Post Office.  This does NOT relate to how long the Post Office took getting the package to you.  We try to offer multiple shipping options and clearly state that we welcome any questions or suggestions for other options.  The stated estimates for delivery are just that – estimates.  The actual time for delivery is completely in the hands of the USPS.  In addition, we have found that Media and Parcel Post packages have been taking even longer than usual, and are not updated as frequently online at www.usps.com. 

 

After a small handful of extremely slow packages have become an issue, and many phone calls with USPS, we have obtained detailed information on Media Rate mail and Parcel Post mail.   Regardless of the time quoted by the USPS through eBay, both rates can “officially” take up to 14 days OR LONGER (this does NOT include weekends, holidays, OR the date the package was received into their system) to arrive at its destination. They also said that while SOMETIMES items with delivery confirmation are scanned into the system along the way and show up online (www.usps.com), it is not always the rule, and often will not show up online until AFTER delivery. If your package has still not arrived after the 14 days has gone by, PLEASE contact us immediately. After the 14 days have passed, we can file a missing package claim with the USPS.  According to USPS rules, we have to wait 14 business days before we can file a claim with the post office.  In the meantime, if your package is taking an absurd amount of time, we will keep tracking this online and will call the post office frequently.  The post office will NOT open a claim or designate further time to this until the 14 days has passed.  Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the US Postal System and have to follow their rules when opening claims.  We apologize for this huge inconvenience and will do everything in our power to resolve any issues with USPS to our buyers satisfaction.
