Terms of Sale (The Antique Chasers)

Our Service Pledge

We respond to all orders within 24 hours. We guarantee the authenticity of all our items, and stand behind them. If any questions, please feel free to email us! Please see our shipping and restocking policy sections if not satisfied!

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

Buyer pays for actual shipping, handling and insurance. Shipping Confirmation is free on all items in our shop & shipped within the U.S.A.! We usually ship Priority Mail or 1st Class & sometimes, Media Mail, whichever choice saves the customer shipping costs & the safest way to ship.

Domestic Shipping Only!: Most items in our shop are set on the calculated combine shipping to help save you money on multiple purchases from our shop. However, there are a few items that, because of the weight and/or size, are not set to be combined with any other items. They will have to be shipped separately! (For example: mixing bowl sets). For these we will choose the safest & less cost shipping possible! Thanks!

We pride ourselves in packaging items as efficiently & tightly as possible, however, due to damage or loss that is caused during shipping, we are not responsible! This applies to both Domestic & International Shipping. Please see:(Ruby Lane's #3 under store wide 'Damage Procedures.) I ship 2-3 times a week. You will be notified upon receipt of payment for your items when the shipping day will be. (Remember! We do combine shipping costs.) (Please see Restocking Fee Section for more Shipping & Refund Information!) Thanks!

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS:
We will try to give the customer usually 2 choices on shipping, which will be noted. One is insured & the other may or may not be! However, again, we do pride ourselves in our packaging items efficiently & tightly, but accidents & loss, while in shipping, do happen. If the customer chooses a shipping that does not have insurance included, then our policy of: " We are not responsible for any damage or loss that occurs during shipping" becomes in effect. Also, if customer does not specify choice, we will automatically insure the item(s), if possible. (Please see #3 of Ruby Lanes Store wide Shipping Procedures under 'Damaged Items.") We can only accept payment thru Paypal for all International transactions.

LAYAWAY
We offer Lay-a-way on most item(s) in our shop! (Sorry! Discounts cannot be given on Lay-A-Ways!). (We only use payments thru either Paypal, Personal Checks or Money Orders on Layaway Plans!) 30% or 1/3 down of the cost of the item is due upon submitting a purchase order, and the rest is due in 2 more 30 day increments, (total of 3 payments all together), Calculations will also include shipping costs pro-rated thru the 3 payments. We will notify you after receiving each payment until item(s) are paid in full. Each payment is due 30 days from the date of each notification. (Example: 1st payment of 1/3 down is received by seller on Oct 10th; Seller notifies the buyer on Oct. 10th of receipt of payment; Next & 2nd payment is due on or before Nov. 10th; Buyer makes 2nd payment by Nov. 10th & is notified of receipt by seller; The Last & 3rd payment is due by or before Dec. 10th.) (Allow an extra 5 business days before shipping, after final payment is received, if paying via personal check, to allow for clearance!) We are flexible & will work with you, if needed!

We try very hard to work with our customers who wish to do a lay-a-way plan. So please feel free to contact us and we will do the best we can to accommodate you. Any payments missed, however, is an automatic relisting of item in the shop for sale again, and no refunds are given. (Again, communication does count to try to work things out! Please notify us in case of any problems or questions and we will try to work with you, if possible!) Thanks for your understanding!!

Restocking Fee

This shop does not charge a Restocking Fee!
We want our customers to be happy with their purchase. Please notify us within 3 days after receiving the item(s) if you are not happy and wish to return them. As quoted in Ruby Lanes Return Section: Any returned item must be shipped within 3 days from date of notification by the Buyer to the Seller. If item is shipped back in a period of time that is beyond or unreasonably long period of time from notification date (i.e.: 10 or more days after notification to Seller), then refund cannot be given! Communication helps!

RETURNS & REFUNDS POLICY:
We will be glad to refund the cost of the item(s) only. (Shipping costs are nonrefundable) Respectfully, we do, however, mark all items against fraudulent returns as our own insurance and will remind customer(s) of this, respectfully & as a reminder, upon notification from buyer wanting to return item. This is not a scare tactic, but a insurance precaution we need to take due to the small few who do try to scam us!

RECYLING:
We are firm believers in recycling reusable boxes & packaging materials on some of our shipments. It not only saves us money, but this also allows us to pass along some savings to our customers. Thank you!

Please, purchase orders are a commitment....I will hold items on "Sales Pending" for 5 to 8 days depending on the type of payment. We understand certain circumstances do happen. So, if you are not able to pay within the allotted time table, please email us and we will try to work with you! But continued communication is a plus! If no payment or communication is made in the allotted time, items will be put back in the shop for sale! Thanks!
