Important Notes about Shipping Charges and the eBay "Detailed Seller Rating" Star System:

The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is including about $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the packing materials/bubble wrap/envelopes/tape we use. We do not request Feedback from my customers as we were taught that "fishing for compliments" was impolite but the new eBay Detailed Rating System has put me in a rather tight spot. Most buyers are unaware that eBay bases a monthly fee discount on a Seller's "Star" rating. A monthly average of "4.6 Stars" (in any one of the four "Star" categories) costs us approximately $400 in additional eBay Fees - that's $400 above what we would pay if we had a "4.8 Star" average in all 4 "Star" categories!! As a consequence I hope you do not find it rude to ask that if you are happy with our items, our service, and our packing & shipping please be sure to use the "Star" rating system and remember that a "5 Star" rating is the only way we can qualify for eBay's fee reduction program .

We strive to describe the items accurately, but please ask any questions before bidding. We try to communicate as best as possible. We ship as quickly as possible, when payment clears. We also try to charge very reasonable shipping charges to all buyers. In the event the shipping price is stated incorrectly, it will be adjusted to be correct. Please let me know if t is a problem. Due to wide range of items we sell and the wide range of condition, all items are sold as is. Please check all photos of the items you want to bid on.
