Please shop my stores for many similar items.

If you would like another shipping option added to the listing, please try to do so before the auction ends, or before you buy. On larger and heavier items, we may find a savings. On smaller items, I am limited by box availability.

I send shipping notifications to all buyers the day your item is shipped. If your spam blockers prevent this from being received, you need to make adjustments.

PLEASE READ: Please wait for Ebay invoice. Please acknowledge within 3 days of auction end. I expect buyers to respond to my notification of final settlement. Combined shipments are not always available. Due to recent changes by the USPS, package size- along with weight now determines shipping cost. If you have special packaging requirements- please advise me prior to submitting payment. My payment terms are net 7 days. I usually ship Priority Mail, insured, unless otherwise specified. Questions are always welcome. Please take the time to read the title and description and review the image before asking a question. If a characteristic of an item is not covered in the listing and the buyer does not ask a question pertaining to that characteristic – there would be no grounds for a complaint or a return. All items are sold as is. Most items I sell are old and used. Slow pay and poor communication do not receive positive feedback. I keep all receipts and will be happy to furnish, if required. Any other complaints you have with the carrier, register them with the carrier. Once I have shipped the item, I have fulfilled my contract obligations. No returns.

Unfortunately- due to the bad behavior of a few buyers- I will no longer post feedback for buyers until they have posted feedback for me.

I rarely relist items. If I do relist- they are put into “my stores’. Therefore- if you want them – bid on them. They will not get any cheaper.

In several instances- I purchase new cartons and bubble wrap. These costs are included in shipping and handling.
