Auction Terms:

Listing: We will not usually list an item on ebay more than 2 times at auction. If it does not sell at this point, it either moves to our web store or to our ebay store (price goes up in ebay store to offset higher ebay fees), questions contact

Communication: We email an invoice, if you do not receive you may complete checkout at any time to get shipping charges. We email when payment received, we email when package shipped. Tracking will be entered through Paypal and can be checked t We also update Ebay as to status. Please check Ebay or Paypal before asking us status, as if you didn’t get our other emails, odds are your email spam filter is blocking us and you won’t get any replies. We make every effort to update you, if you do not hear from us, the problem is most likely on your end. AOL seems to block us a lot. For questions contact

Shipping Time: We ship most items within 1 business day. We do not always ship on

Multiple Purchases: We combine multiple purchases to save on shipping charges, provided we receive 1 lump some payment. Please do not complete checkout or use Paypal on individual items, if you are bidding or purchasing others. Request total from seller through Ebay or email when you want a total, with savings reflected.

US Payment Accepted: Paypal, Money Order/Cashiers Check, Personal Check (7-10 day Waiting period).

International Payment Accepted: Paypal, International Money Order (drawn on US funds), NO PERSONAL CHECKS ACCEPTED (our bank charges $20 to process them)!!!

Shipping Rate and Info: All charges stated in auction, if you feel this is too high Do Not Bid. Charges based upon a prepackaged estimate, actual may differ higher or lower, but we charge based upon estimate with handling added. Handling helps us continue to offer Paypal, pay for proper packaging supplies (no one likes receiving damaged goods) and help defray the ever increasing Ebay final auction fees. Again, if this is a problem DO NOT BID!!! We reserve the right to cancel any transaction paid for through Paypal to an unconfirmed address. We reserve the right to require insurance for any item or purchase. Not responsible for items lost or damaged in shipping, insurance offered for this purpose. Decline insurance at your own risk.

International shipments: will ship via US Airmail, surface post is no longer offered. We state actual end of auction price on Customs declarations and ship as commercial sample. This is the Law, do not ask us to break it. We require most international shipments to be insured and/or registered, thus causing higher shipping rates than you may receive from other sellers. If this is unacceptable, do not bid. We have had real problems shipping overseas with fraudulent transactions. This is the only way we will accept Paypal from abroad, as they do not offer sellers support from International buyers.

Shipping to Italy: Many items are banned, please check with us before bidding. 35% restocking fee for bids placed on banned items if you do not check with us first. Expect massive delays in ship time from Italian Customs. Shipping to Italy is worse than any other country, we have found.

Sales Tax: NY residents or NY shipping we must charge 8% tax. Please ...
