LAYAWAY PAYMENTS- preferred payment methods by personal check or money order. Paypal may be used if multiple fees are covered by buyer.

Most orders are paid using Paypal & will be shipped when payment is received. If paying by personal check or Money Order-please let proprietor know at time of selecting item for purchase. Make checks payable to JULIE BURKE. Address will then be provided. Please allow time for check to clear (5-10 days)~ payment by these methods will delay shipping.

When selecting an item for purchase, the item is listed as "sale pending". Thus no other interested buyers may purchase the item & it will be HELD for you. Therefore, payments are expected in a timely manner; within 3 days for PayPal purchases & within 7 days for cashier check, money order or personal checks. After this time frame has lapsed, if no payment has been received or if the buyer has not contacted us to make alternate arrangements, the item will be returned to inventory without notice.

Please be aware that items are NOT on hold when questions are being volleyed with proprietor, unless set up previously. We always do our best to reply quickly to inquiries- though at times hours may lapse. There is always a possibility that someone else can select the item for purchase during that time.
