We sell and collect rare and unusual items that often cannot be replaced. We understand the need to pack things carefully, so we take the time to do things correctly, as there is no “Do over!” We pack and protect the items we sell, but no matter which shipping service we use, there will always be a few shipments that are damaged, no matter how well they were packaged and secured.
Many of our toys are not intended for children, as they are very old and may not meet current safety guidelines.
We strive to give our clients customized shipping options at fair prices on each and every item. Shipping rates are calculated via www.usps.com, using zip code 34275. We ship via USPS with tracking unless otherwise specified. Priority Mail does include up to $50 in insurance. However, we do add insurance into the shipping cost no matter which shipping method you choose for your protection as well as our own. We typically ship within 2 business days after payment is made and cleared. Please make sure that we have your correct mailing/shipping address. If you are an international client please make sure we have a valid address for you in English to avoid shipping delays. We only ship to verified confirmed addresses.
Please be aware that sometimes the shipping widget that we use combines shipping on multiple items as if each item were being shipped out separately and then gives you the price for this service. This makes the shipping look higher than what it should be. In some cases the shipping is the correct amount, however, in other cases once we package and box your items we may find a huge difference between calculated shipping costs and actual shipping costs. We are not here to make money off of bumping up the shipping. If we find your shipping to be more than a few dollars over the calculated price we will refund the overage to your chosen form of payment.
Please note that delivery times you see at checkout are ESTIMATES. USPS PRIORITY MAIL international does include tracking and insurance. It is more expensive, but is the only option for shipping on items over 4 pounds or over $50 in value.
CUSTOMS/DUTY – INTERNATIONAL CLIENTS ONLY
All buyers from outside the USA should be fully and uniformly informed regarding customs and taxes on items coming from the USA. Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility. Please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up; do not confuse them for additional shipping charges. We do not falsely lower merchandise values or mark items as “gifts” as US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior. As such, we cannot accept requests to do so. Our international clients are very important to us. Please let us know if you have any questions.
TERMS OF SALE
Items are returnable, however, we ask our clients to examine our high-definition photos carefully before making your purchase. We do our best to show and describe any type of damage that might [in our opinion] have an effect on value. Please review them and feel free to ask any questions you might have.
In the end…we want happy and extremely satisfied clients. We work very hard to make your buying experience as wonderful as possible.
