Please contact me if you have additional questions regarding the condition of the item. Contact me for additional photos. If you are seeking a collectible which looks brand new please reconsider purchasing. Our items are as described, but descriptions are subjective, after all. Please note, if an item is returned within our 3 day return window, your payment will be returned, minus a 3 percent restocking fee (which represents credit card fees which are never refunded to us by the processing companies). This applies only to orders which have been paid for via Mastercard, VISA, etc. We do not issue refunds for shipping.
Layaway is available. A 20 percent non refundable deposit will secure the item and we will work with you regarding the length of the layaway. We are fairly flexible, but require a payment each month. No refunds on layaway. Our policy requires post dated checks sent to us at one time(domestic customers), where we can cash each payment each month, according to the date on the check.

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. USPS shipping rates (both domestic and international) continue to increase. I ship based on size of box (anything over 12" is considered oversized and charged a surcharge by USPS), weight, insurance and priority, first class or express options. I will refund any excess you have paid. I do combine shipping for multiple purchases.
