Frequently Asked Questions

How do you identify condition of items you sell?

I carefully inspect items prior to listing and will describe any visible defects or flaws. Normal wear is to be expected and is not considered a defect.

The following language is used to describe the condition of items in the shop:

* Excellent or Like New: item has very minimal signs of use or wear.

* Very Good: item has light signs of use or wear.

* Good Vintage Condition: item shows signs of use and wear typical for its age.

* Well Used: item has significant flaws but none-the-less has practical or aesthetic value.

Can you give better shipping rates to international buyers?

Probably! Convo your mailing address to me to get an accurate shipping quote.

Do you refund payment for damaged items?

Yes, your purchases are insured.

Items damaged in transit, will be refunded after you provide the necessary information for filing the claim.

The buyer is responsible for sending photos of the damaged item, packaging, and packing materials to the seller and/or delivery company. Hold on to all of these items until the claim has been resolved. You may be required to present these items to your local post office or carrier for verification of damage.

Additionally, the USPS requires me to report the buyer's email address and phone number.
