Stuff You Should Read About How We Do Business:

~We are always happy to combine orders for shipping if we can. Even when we must ship items in separate boxes for safety, we waive our $2 handling fee on the second and subsequent boxes. ~We do not use Buy-It-Now on our auctions and don't end auctions early for offers. It's not fair to those who are watching and expecting to bid at the end (a risky business, but many chance it nonetheless.) ~All our auctions are no-reserve. ~We guarantee your satisfaction on all items we sell. If we have missed something, which does happen from time to time with the antique and vintage items we handle, we will always make it right. ~We hate leaving negative feedback and only do when items are unpaid and the eBay unpaid item process fails. Don't make us do this! ~We will not misrepresent values (lie) on customs forms. We love our international shoppers and value them highly, but please don't embarrass us and yourselves by asking us to lie and then sign our name to the lie. It's not going to happen, so if you need that type of "assistance," it's a good thing not to bid
