Terms of Sale (Pearl's Parlor)

Our Service Pledge

We respond to all orders and questions within 24 hours and ship within one or two business days (Monday thru Friday) following the receipt of your verified payment. Please click at the right on Terms of Sale for additional information.

We describe all items as thoroughly as possible and take photos from several different angles. All of our items are vintage and pre-owned, so they will show normal signs of aging and use. We try not to use subjective descriptions such as excellent or very good, as those terms mean different things to different people. However, we do try to mention any damage, flaws, or imperfections or show them in the photos - no matter how minor they may seem.

We're always happy to answer any questions and supply more photos upon request.
