My Guarantee:

I make every effort possible to grade, describe, and photograph my items accurately. Please do not assume that I am an expert on an item or category just because I have it at auction. If something important to you is not addressed in my description, ask before bidding. Buyer must contact me within three days of receiving the item if you feel it was not fairly represented. Any returns that are authorized must be returned back into my possession in the same condition that I shipped it out and at the buyer's expense. Shipping damages are never covered by me. Any refunds issued will not exceed the amount of the winning bid.

Domestic Shipping:

At the bottom of my listing page you will find a shipping estimator. Enter your zip code for shipping options and prices. I require advance approval for any shipping method not offered or any special requests. I recommend but do not require insurance. My packaging is sufficient for the normal protection of delicate items but I CAN NOT be responsible for damage or loss. I do not charge handling fees and am able to offer reasonable rates by using recycled packing material. Please don't complain if your foam peanuts are different colors.

International Bidders:

For a shipping rate, go to "Shipping, payment details and return policy" section at the bottom of this page. T is a drop-down menu next to w is says "Country". Click on this and select your destination. Rates will appear for the shipping methods I offer for this item. Often, because of size or weight, I am not able to ship by certain methods to certain countries. Please be aware of your own country's size restrictions. If in doubt, refer to /tools/calculatepostage for size & weight limits or email me before bidding. When considering the offered options, keep in mind that only Priority International is insurable and while Air Mail 1st Class is cheaper, insurance is not available for this method.


I am happy to ship to you but caution that delivery estimates for Canada are usually VERY optimistic! I suspect it has more to do with customs than USPS. I can only guarantee when I will ship and make no predictions as to when it will finally show up at your door. If you understand and agree to this, feel free to participate in my auctions.


Unless an item is BIG, or HEAVY, or DIFFICULT to package, I am not inclined to accomodate local exchages or pickups. It just isn't practical for me. If you have a particular need or reason why it would be important to you, you can always ask but by all means, ask first!


Pay Pal is my preferred method of payment but I am also happy to accept Cashiers Checks, Money Orders, and Personal checks. Make checks and money orders payable to Pat Fisher. ...
