Terms of Sale (Oh.)

Our Service Pledge

I respond to questions and orders as quickly as I can, usually the same day for e-mail. Please use the Email Shop Owner link on the left hand navigation bar, or write to me directly at mjbakst@yahoo.com. It may take several days or more to receive an answer by phone.


I do my best to describe all items accurately, and I consider my photographs to be an integral part of the descriptions. If you have any questions, would like to see a specific view, or have additional knowledge about an item that might help me do better, please don't hesitate to get in touch. I believe in good communication, and want you to be happy with your purchases from my shop.

I hope you enjoy yourself here at "Oh." I'd like to see you become a regular visitor, and a customer.

Return Policy

Ruby Lane and each of its independent shops want you to be satisfied with your purchase. To ensure your satisfaction and for the protection of both the buyer and shop owner, we have a Return Policy that each Ruby Lane shop owner honors. View Return Policy

Shipping/Handling/Insurance Policy

I ship most small, light boxes USPS Priority. Larger boxes (over 12 x 12 x 12), heavy boxes or packages traveling longer distances may ship USPS Parcel Select or USPS Standard Post, or with a private carrier such as FedEx, FedEx Ground, or UPS.

Insurance is required. Insurance is not available to certain countries, and shipping to these countries will be at my discretion, and at the customers risk.

I am happy to combine items to save on shipping if it is possible and practical.

I will be happy to provide a shipping quote and arrange shipping for large items, including furniture. For large furniture I use reputable, professional shippers who provide "white glove" service within the Continental United States. I can suggest shippers and/or provide a shipping quote for these items to Alaska, Hawaii, and many other destinations worldwide. Please inquire.

Restocking Fee

My shop does not have a restocking fee on non-layaway purchases. However, shipping/handling/insurance charges, including return shipping/handling/insurance are non-refundable.

LAYAWAYS: Even though my shop shows the default of 'No Layaways,' I will consider layaways on an item-by-item basis; a one-size-fits-all approach does not work when items are so different one from another. PLEASE INQUIRE. Layaways are not subject to Ruby Lane's return policy, however, my shop does accept returns on Layaways. Returned Layaways are subject to a twenty-five percent restocking fee, and Cancelled Layaways are subject to a twenty-five percent Cancellation fee. I reserve the right to cancel any Layaway if payments are not made in a timely manner as agreed upon. If there is a problem concerning your Layaway payment, please get in touch sooner rather than later, good communication is essential.

Layaway Policy

This shop does not offer a layaway plan for purchases
