Payment: I only accept payment by PayPal, and require buyers to transfer payment within 2 working days of winning offer. Shipment will leave within 3 working days of receipt of payment. I will pack appropriately to avoid any damage in transit
Item Description: All items offered are described as accurately as possible. Any defects are mentioned and if possible photographed and displayed.
I refer to some of the items I sell as “vintage”. This is a loosely used term with no exact definition, but is generally accepted as referring to items manufactured between 30-80 years ago, which are not old enough to be called “antiques”.
I date the items I sell by identifying the manufacturers’ marks or according to information received from the former owners and attempt to be as accurate as possible.
Please read the complete description and view the photos carefully before offerding. I will always enclose photos from all angles so that you can judge for yourself before purchasing.
Refund policy: I will accept goods returned to me within 7 days of receipt by buyer, and refund the cost, on the following conditions only:
- The goods do not match the description supplied by us - The cost of return shipping will be paid by the buyer
Shipping: Goods are usually sent by registered air mail to countries outside Israel, and are insured by the post office up to a value of approximately $100. Unfortunately, international postal regulations specify that items sent by the postal services are only insured if they are not classified as “breakable”. For this reason I try to pack as well as possible to avoid any breakages, but if buyers request that I send items by courier instead of regular air mail, I will check the rates and quote according to the weight of the item. Buyers should notify me of this request at time of finalizing the sale. Buyers in Israel should contact me for an inland postal rate, or arrange to pick up the goods personally.
International Buyers – Please Note: Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges.These charges are the buyer's responsibility. - Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to offerding/buying. - These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or Post Office when you pick the item up – do not confuse them with additional shipping charges. - I do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as "gifts" - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.
response Policy: response is very important to all of us – if you are happy with your purchase, please show your appreciation by leaving a response. You will receive the same courtesy from me. If, for any reason, you are not fully satisfied, contact me before leaving response and I will do my utmost to find a suitable solution.
