Terms of Sale - How to Buy an Item
USA and Foreign Orders ... Send me an email for what item(s) you want to buy. I will put them on hold for you. I also need your shipping address. I can't ship without it. If you don't speak English, use Bing to translate. Keep your sentences short and simple.
Wisconsin Sales Tax ... If you live in Wisconsin please add 5.5% to the price or mail me a completed and signed Wis Resale Certificate along with your payment.
USA or foreign shipping: I will safely pack your items. The buyer assumes all risk of loss and damage the moment the package is mailed by me.
Free USA Shipping ... If you live in the United States there is no charge for shipping, it is already included in the price. I choose how to send it. Add for insurance if you want it. Add $1 for a USA only 1st class snail-mail tracking sticker.
Foreign shipping ... The USPS increased foreign air mail postage in Jan 2013 by 100%. I will still ship most small, thin, cloth and paper items outside the USA for free. The USPS purposely does not sell tracking or insurance on 1st class airmail to foreign countries. USPS Domestic and International Postal Price Calculator
Registered Mail ... Add $15 to cover USPS charge plus extra supplies and time required to ship. Allow more time - registered mail is slow! Registered mail may or may not be tracked outside the USA.
Foreign Tracking ... USPS Express Mail (Federal Express) has a monopoly on foreign package tracking. They charge $45 for their 12x9" tracking envelope (anything you can stuff in up to 4 pounds is free). Or they charge $75 for their 13x11x3" or 11x8x5" box (anything you can stuff in up to 20 pounds is free).
USA Payments: Cash, Check, MO, Postal Money Order. I don't like Paypal so I don't take it for USA customers. All payments must clear before I ship. I am not set up to accept credit cards or bank to bank transfers.
Foreign Payments: Cash by registered mail, International Money Orders (for Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean), email Moneygram, or Western Union MTCN (Money Transfer Control Number).
Foreign Paypal, Goods/Services Option: Paypal requires the seller to track packages. The buyer gets "buyer protection." I accept paypal when the buyer pays for Express Mail plus paypal fees.
Foreign Paypal, Family/Friends Option: Use this option when you only want to pay for the lower cost 1st class airmail. You will not get package tracking. I get the exact amount, you get zero or very low fees. You will not be eligible for "buyer protection."
Email notification ... I will email you the day I receive your payment and the day I ship your order.
Payment by Trade or Consignment Items ... I am always looking for nice quality original items. What do you have to trade or sell? Send me an email or give me a call.
Returns ... Any item may be returned for a full refund, less actual shipping and insurance costs if returned within seven days following receipt of the item(s) as long as they are returned in the same condition as sent. Any damage resulting from untoward disassembly, cleaning, "polishing", or other alterations may result in the denial of a full-refund. All returns must be safely packed and fully insured.
Prices ... The items in this online catalog are either mine or are on consignment from others. The prices are pretty much what I have to get. Unlike some other dealers, you know you are not getting gouged on shipping and handling charges. When something really nice comes along I pay up and that's what you must do too. I do not give volume or dealer discounts. If an item doesn't get many page views or has been around a while I may lower the price to move it out. If it still doesn't sell I will put it up on ebay (if it doesn't have a swastika) for a 99 cent opening bid. With the value of the dollar always declining 3% or more per year my advice is to spend those shrinking dollars on things that will appreciate over time.
