Buyer pays store or closing auction price plus postage, which includes delivery confirmation, to U.S. address. Will combine postage for multiple wins or purchases--contact me to arrange this. Insurance is optional, but no refunds for items lost in the mail if you rejected insurance. Insurance is based on actual purchase price; amount quoted in listing may not be accurate if final price exceeds $50. Please look at the description carefully; if a return becomes necessary, sorry, I can't refund your return postage. Sorry, no personal checks.
Will ship to international customers, but please email me for postage quote and acceptable methods of payment; if you are an overseas customer, please do not send me what you guess the postage to be. I will not mail items overseas in packaging that is not sturdy enough to prevent damage. In most cases, this does not add much to the cost. Please do not ask me to mail the item all the way to your country for the same postage cost as mail that stays in the United States.
Thanks for looking!
