I have been struggling with fellow Ruby Lane dealers/customers who send me offers, and when I accept, they back out of the offer, do not respond to emails, etc. Please do not purchase or send an offer unless you are willing to stand behind it and keep your commitment to purchase. Many times I have to make a 60 mile round trip to pick up the item to pack it. I BLOCK all non paying customers and customers who back out of Best Offer arrangements.
Please note, Ruby Lane's calculated shipping is an estimate and sometimes can be intimidating. Rest assured, I only charge my actual shipping costs and will refund any excess you have paid. I sell vintage and antique items with a history; oftentimes items may show wear from a former life. I always try to note any serious condition issues. Layaway is available. A 20% non refundable deposit will secure the item and we will work with you regarding the length of the layaway.
