I am not an expert but try to list all flaws no matter how minor. Items are sold as is, so contact me if you have any questions.

Payment due in 5 days...Payment via Paypal only. No Echecks please. Also, please view the other items I have at auction - S hipping is Combined for Multiple Items. If winning multiple items, please wait for an invoice so shipping charges can be adjusted. First Class shipping (max 13oz) is considerably less expensive and insurance can still be purchased.

Unfortunately, I have had buyers who want to run a tab and do not respond to invoices or emails. As a result, I, regrettably, have had to put the following constraints in place:

My auctions usually start each Sunday and I will hold any item won if you plan on bidding on the next auction. However, the item won must be paid for within 5 days including shipping. Please let me know your intentions. Should you win on the next auction, your invoice for that auction will be adjusted to reflect combined shipping. This can be done through two auctions only.

Ebay is now requiring a return policy is mine: Items are sold as is. I do my best to provide an accurate description and expect buyers to read the listing and ask questions before bidding. Please contact me with any questions/complaints in a respectful manner...your emails will be promptly answered. Oversights can happen and will be dealt with on an individual basis.
