No Reserve - Good Feedback - Fair Shipping - Money Back Combined Shipping: Postal rates shown are for this item


(1.)  With over 2,000 shipments behind me, Please be assured that I'll get your parcel to you safely. I appreciate those buyers who continue to acknowledge 'good packing job!' when they leave positive feedback.   I apologize to those who have experienced a delay in shipping...but I'm sometimes called away for other responsibilities.

I don't inflate postage beyond actual cost! I base postage on the official US Postal Service rates and add only $1.50 ($3.00 for overseas and Canada) to cover packaging expense. Â

I pack every item carefully with new or recycled packaging  material and the added S/H doesn't always cover the actual cost. Computer paper, tape, bubble-wrap, zip-lock bags, sticky-back postage labels and other supplies drive up the costs...and then t are fees assessed by eBay and PayPal. Foreign orders are assessed an 'exchange fee' by PayPal. Â

Believe me:  $1.50 (or $3.00 for "Foreign") added for S/H isn't a winning proposition!

(2.)   Whenever possible, I use USPS-supplied packing material...but that requires PRIORITY MAIL. If your purchase requires a HARD BOX to prevent shipping damage, ...that's the only way I'll do it. Staples and Office Depot sell similar boxes for an outrageous price, and I don't buy their boxes, just to be able to ship to you by USPS First Class. If I did so, the costs (to ship 1st Class) would be higher (than Priority Mail)!

(3.)  None of us have any control over postage rates....but I'd rather listen to you 'gripe' about the cost of postage than have you disappointed with a damaged shipment. Please don't ask me to be a "CHEAP CHARLIE" just to save you a buck on an otherwise good packing job. Â

 Notice to Bidders including my Canadian and Mexican friends:

 I don't  ship by "USPS First-Class", or other "standard-rate" or "surface" delivery methods  due to sometimes slow shipping and lack of traceability .

(1.)  eBay, PayPal, and the US Postal Service no longer provide the tools to print postage for "USPS First Class" on-line .  I'm not equipped or prepared to  take your individual parcel to the Post Office for special handling ...and simply don't offer that service.
