The NOT SO FINE Fine Print.
HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED that reputable sellers of antiques have many feedback that read, "better than described"? The reason for that is because we call everything we see. Bona fide antiques--like people--age, even if they have led a charmed life. PLEASE, look at antiques with a realistic eye. Some are "born" with flaws and all gather wear during their lifetime. Time ages everything! WE prefer to make this experience as easy as possible. YOU can help. Please READ the description. Don't just look at the pictures. If you have any questions, ASK them. Sure, it may take a couple minutes of your time right then, but your email just may save us both a lot of time later. If you are the winning bidder, please ANSWER our email with your name and address and use our file number, which will help to speed your item up. PAYMENT is expected within 10 days [Changed 01-18-04] of the auction close. If you find that you have bid more than you can afford, COMMUNICATE with us. We will work with you and arrange payments. We welcome personal checks, money orders and their equivalents. Rubber checks are not welcome so please don't send one. Hate to put this back in but, we have had a number of RUBBER CHECKS recently. If you send one, be aware that you will be asked to send a money order with an additional $20.00. If a refund is necessary, we will refund the bid price only. We respectfully ask all Game Players, Scam Artists, and Speculative Buyers to pass our auctions up. To the vast majority of buyers who are friendly, honest, and super people to deal with, we thank you for playing by the rules and for checking out our auctions. You are greatly appreciated!! Many thanks, Ed & Kate.
