Box Lot Case #1 Full 1950s Vintage Stereo Transparencies Slides Photo Photograph:
This is one of 3 lots of stereo slides we currently have listed, mostly Kodachrome, each lot is in a hard sided baja case. They are musty from basement storage. The lots seem to average about 400 pieces each, some more some a bit less, but pretty close.
Subject matter is mainly family vacations, get togethers, some holidays, some gardens, there are occasional photos with old cars, there are beaches and water views, old motels, some landmarks, etc. Also weddings and tourist attractions like water or amusement parks. One case is labeled more thoroughly, the other two are all mixed up with no order and the divider tabs were mostly missing or in the bottom of the case.
These are considered box lots so please read that info before offerding, all as is as found no returns.
Please take the time to read all information that applies to you below. We are selling consigned items, we are not experts or collectors.offerding indicates you are OK with our system as explained below.
If you have any questions or need more photos, let us know (allowing time for answers please). Photos are part of the description and show all that is included.
The items we sell are almost always used and sold as is as found no returns unless otherwise noted.However if we make an error in our listing and an item is not as described because we miss obvious damage or if we state an item works and it does not then of course we will make it good. But noreturns for any reason after 3 days from delivery, that gives you more than enoughtime to open and inspect your item(s). Expect normal age appropriate signs of wear and use, sometimes odors, dust, etc, these items are often attic and basement estate finds.
FOR BOX LOTS OR LARGE LOTS:Box lots tend to get us in trouble sometimes because buyers do not read this section. Box lots are not described or inspected item by item and if getting a box lot with some items that are not working or that have damage we did not see is going to bother you but you offer anyway that is not a reason for a return, we make no guarantees on condition for box lots. The purpose of our box lots is to move larger quantities of items for our consignors, items that we would not be able to list in any other manner for a variety of reasons. Box lots allow us to list items that we would not otherwise list because their individual value would not be worth it, or because it would be too time consuming to list items individually, or because the fees would add up too fast, or because items are being sold for parts, or because we have no idea how to check or describe some items. We may not catch some damage because we truthfully are not looking for it closely, we don't know if everything works because we are not testing items, and we realize there is little or no information because we are not describing box lots, that is the nature of our box lots. Box lots have benefits for the buyers, you get a substantial shipping savings over buying items and paying for shipping one at a time, you get access to more of a variety of items we would not list otherwise, and sometimes you find a treasure in the mix! If you have a question on a particular item we will try to answer it. Photo or scrap albums, flatware sets, and other sales that contain many individual items are also considered box lots. If any of this is a problem for you then our box lots are probably not for you.
SHIPPING INFO:If you do not want all of the items in an sale let us know and we can ship only what you want. Specific packing requests need to be made before we pack the morning after the sale.Before we send an invoice we like to check Fed Ex and USPS regional rates to see if we can save some money that way - not all available choices show in the shipping calculator provides.Until an item is packed and weighed after the sale we are only estimating shipping costs. A reasonable fee is added to the exact shipping for all sales,this fee is based on and goes towards the insurance (all items are insured thru a third party insurer), and handling.
If a package is lost or arrives damaged our insurance requires the buyer to sign a claim statement. Do not throw out the original box or packing materials. It not likely it will need to be inspected but just in case! We only ship to the address that is on the PayPal payment, and it needs to be confirmed or verified. Somepackages are not scanned along the way, that does not mean your package was not shipped. Items shippedmedia mailthat are rejected by the post office on the buyers end may require the buyer to pay additional shipping for parcel post. Since you would have had to pay that anyway if we had used parcel post,the additional expense is not our responsibility and will not be reimbursed. Use of media mail for magazines or catalogs is at your own risk so parcel post is recommended for those items.
COMBINED SHIPPING:We combine shipping whenever possible. Sometimes the savings is substantial, sometimes it is not much at all because the box got bigger and that affected the rates.Some items can’t be combined safely, or the box size is gets too big and/or too heavy. On occasion invoices have not been correct for combined shipping, if it shows free that is most definitely not the case, when we offer free shipping it will show that in the actual sale.
INTERNATIONAL buyers ONLY:Sold price can change the shipping method we will use.Any item that totals over $499.00 in shipping and sold price has to be sent Express International,and if between 249.00 - 499.00 we require priority international mail. We have to protect our consignors merchandise. The sale sold price is the only amount that will appear on the customs form as the item value, it has to match the insured amount,we will not change the value on the customs form for any reason. Any import duties or taxes you may have to pay on your end are your responsibility and not additional shipping, do not ask us to put a lower price on the customs form.First Class International has little or no tracking ability so if you want more traceability please request a shipping upgrade. If you are not able to get a shipping quotein the sale that means the box is larger or heavier than what your country allows for the service listed, please do not offer without contacting us for clarification or other options.
Payment should be received within 3 days of sale end.
Sales tax is required for all NY shipments.
