I keep my shipping costs as low as possible. I combine postage so that there is only one standard shipping charge for an unlimited amount of items within the same package. The total value of items depends on whether insurance is required or not. I am not making any profit on insured items at all. I have to use this to cover myself in the event of loss. Thank you.
Please bear in mind that whilst I have done my best to provide a fair and accurate description of this item, all dates and descriptions are only my opinion and should NOT be taken as statements of fact.
Buyers should read the description in full and study all the photographs (which themselves form part of the description). The images can be enlarged to show more detail. Please ask any questions PRIOR to offerding. You should also check item measurements carefully.
By offerding on this item you are agreeing to these terms and conditions and have satisfied yourself that the item is what you want.
Please note-any boxes shown in photos are for display purposes only and are not included in the sale (unless otherwise stated).
Sadly I have recently had a number of buyers contact me days after winning an item to inform me they offer 'in error'. This is grossly unfair on a seller who believes they have a winning offer and genuine underbuyers who did not win. Please offer carefully as all 'errors' will be treated in the same way as 'non paying buyers', a dispute filed to recover fees and a strike on the non paying buyers account.
The aim is to make this a pleasurable experience for both buyer and seller.
The items that I sell are antique/vintage, unless otherwise stated in the description. Pre-owned items have been used by owners before you and as such, may have signs of wear. If you are looking for only brand new or pristine condition items, then my sales may not be for you.
Please send any contact through ' messages' as I am not always near my emails and many end up lost forever in my spam folder! I will reply to you at the very earliest opportunity.
