Your satisfaction with your item and delivery is important to us.
We have very positive response, and this has been based on a practice of unconditional guarantee thatwe are no longer interested in providing- due to changes in policies* which, we believe, left sellers in a vulnerable position.In our experiences a very small percentage of the buying community has taken advantage of this. For example, we have been asked to refund a pocket watch due to a 'suggested' discrepancy of 1/16th of an inch in measurement (this cost us money on the original shipping and return shipping). Unless there is a listing error on our part, or the item was damaged during shippingwe will not accept returns, please read the description carefully, examine the many photos and contact us with any questions you may have during the live sale.
*I believe is trying to address some of these concerns more recently, I took a break from for 6 months and am just getting back into it.
Having said this, please know thatwe are honest sellers and have always endeavoured to provide customer satisfaction, we just don't want to be taken advantage of.Please feel free to contact usby telephone preferably(number will be provided to winning buyers when the sale ends)withanyquestions or concerns.
