Please note that I am not a experts in every item that I list; however, I do strive to describe these items to the best of my ability and list any major defects that I am aware of at the time of listing. Any minor defects not visible to the naked eye or through touch may not be noted. Most of my items are vintage or are old and come from my aunts and uncles home and as such are being sold "As Is". An item that may be 100 years old or older will most likely have a few minor flaws such as scratches so please take this into account and remember to ask any questions prior to bidding.SHIPPING & REFUNDS: We take every precaution to minimize breakage during shipment through careful packaging. (We bubble wrap and use peanuts with newspapers for packing) We mark glass and fragile items with brightly colored fragile stickers; however, sometimes they do not receive the handling required for safe arrival by the shipping company. We have optional insurance available at the buyer's expense if desired. If optional insurance is selected and the item is broken during shipment a refund will be given for the actual item cost through the united states post office..."SHIPPING CHARGES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE".
