I LOVE THIS OLD PRIMITIVE -- PLEASE SOMEONE BID BEFORE I DECIDE TO KEEP IT!!!

I am very upfront about shipping costs. The handling cost for this item is $1.00 to cover my expenses for packaging materials; this is allowed by eBay. The cost of insurance, $2.75, is also part of the shipping cost. I always have the actual shipping cost printed on the shipping label attached to the box. After I ship an item, I e-mail the buyer with an itemized list of the shipping costs. If I over charge, I refund the difference to the buyer via PayPal. You never owe more! You may wonder why my initial calculation might not be exact - I don't actually finish packing a box until the item has sold; that way I don't waste my time packing an item that doesn't sell.
Any item I describe as being vintage, old, and/or antique is exactly as I have stated. If the item is a reproduction,that will be stated clearly in the listing. As a buyer,I have been duped twice by eBay sellers; I have seen other questionably described listings. It's not a good feeling buying something that is advertised as an antique, etc., but later I find out it's a reproduction. I guarantee my descriptions! I promise to be an extrememly ethical seller, so that you can buy with confidence.
