One of the side handle retainers has a chip missing. Some scratches on inside of jar. My auctions typically start and end on Sunday. My nearby Post Office recently shortened their hours, so Im now only making two or three Post Office visits each week. So typically if you pay for an item on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, it will be at my local Post Office by Monday or Tuesday, and if you pay on Monday it will be there on Tuesday or Wednesday. Please let me know if you need something urgently and Ill try to make it a priority. Id strongly recommend sending me a message with your address just to be sure. I do my best to protect everything I sell, but much of what I sell is very fragile and the possibility always exists that it might get damaged along the way. If you receive an item that you arent completely happy with, please contact me and well work something out.
The last thing I want is for my customers to feel that theyve been taken advantage of. Im in Port Hueneme, CA 93041. How bulky the package is. The size of the box I use will usually need to account for the size of the item, plus 2 to 4 in each direction for packaging.
The size of the box usually doesnt affect the price much, unless if dimensions start going over 12 within California it doesnt matter much bulk away! How much the package weighs.
Note that for small items most of this weight will be due to packaging material. To estimate the package weight, I typically take the weight of the item and then double or triple it. PRICES, BEST OFFERS & VACATION HOLDS. Ill be honest, I dont do a lot of research on where to set my prices.
After that Im willing to consider just about anything, but if you think Im asking way too much on an item, please let me know why rather than just sending me a very low offer (which I might otherwise decline). Items Ive had listed for years Ill typically be happy to accept a lot less on (50% to 75% off), while items that Ive had listed for just a few days will typically be much closer to my asking price. I review all offers and never auto-decline, but I might decline without a counter-offer if an offer seems outrageously low with no explanation.
You can still watch items and ask me questions, but if I have an active Vacation Hold in place Ill have to decline your offers until I get back. If you see I have a Vacation Hold in place, instead of sending me an offer (which Ill have to decline) please first send me a message with your price and Ill respond back. If we can agree on a price Ill let you know when Ill be active again and Ill hold the item for you until I get back.
Usually this isnt enough to get all the details of an item. Please message me if youd like additional photos of specific details or angles and Ill try to accommodate. Any item details regarding item age, origin, and authenticity are my best guess based on my limited knowledge of antiques and are not guaranteed to be correct.On the other hand, if Im vague in the description, its probably because Im not sure. Please use your best judgement and check the photos. Feel free to send me a message with any concerns and Ill be happy to chat. If you still arent sure on an item, please consider having an expert check it out (I recommend ValueMyStuff.
And if you receive your item and still have concerns, please let me know. Any items in the background, used for scale, or used to prop up or display the item are not included in the sale unless otherwise specified or requested.Also, feel free to contact me if you see something similar to what you want, as I have a lot of inventory that I havent listed yet, and I might have what youre looking for.
