Shipping, Handling, Insurance Policy
Payment by Paypal or Amazon on one item is expected at time of purchase to be fair to our customers and to us. Multiple purchases wait until combined invoice is sent. Money orders are due within 7 days after commitment to purchase. ONLY US MONEY ORDERS ACCEPTED. NO INTERNATIONAL MONEY ORDERS PLEASE! MY BANK WILL NOT ACCEPT.
We will not hold unpaid items for more than 36 hours unless prior arrangements are made and will return them to sale so that other customers will have an opportunity to buy.
Precluding unforeseen circumstances, merchandise will be shipped the next business day if payment is received by 6PM and always within 3 business days after payment is received. NOTE: We ship Monday through Friday only ~ no Saturday shipping .Buyer pays for shipping, handling and insurance. We ship First Class for most jewelry and Priority Mail for collectibles statewide unless requests are made for alternate shipping. International shipping is, in most cases, Priority. Insurance is recommended for your protection and is required on some items. Jewelry and other small items listed with Free Shipping and Insurance are sent First Class (US only). I AM HAPPY TO GIVE SHIPPING QUOTES PRIOR TO THE SALE, SO PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO ASK. Due to some overseas shipping losses and no way to track, REGISTERED MAIL is REQUIRED on any shipment overseas. That is the only way to track shipments overseas. If you decline insurance (Registered Mail), I am not responsible for loss or damage to your order while enroute. INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please note that when using First Class International shipping I am unable to insure and track items via the Post Office, therefore I cannot be held responsible for lost or broken items. Should you elect First Class and do not want insurance, you must decline insurance.

Layaway PolicyThis shop does not offer a layaway plan for purchases
INTERNATIONAL BUYERS! Please note when using FIRST CLASS International shipping I am unable to insure and track items via the Post Office, therefore I cannot be held responsible for lost or broken items. Should you select First Class International shipping and do not want insurance, you must decline insurance at the time of purchase.
Please email for shipping amounts if that is imperative prior to completing sale. I WILL BE HAPPY TO GIVE SHIPPING QUOTES. Shipping is combined on multiple purchases.
