About Chosen

Our Service Pledge
* Thank you for your interest in our offerings. We have sold antiques, vintage jewelry, clothing and fine art in the Chicago area for over 20 years. Our items are personally selected from local Chicago estates. We guarantee the authenticity of our items and strive to provide accurate descriptions regarding all aspects of condition and estimates of age. Should you ever find you want to return a purchase, we offer a no questions asked return policy, the full details of which can be seen under the terms of sale tab on each listing.

*Paypal Payments are due within 4 days of initiating a purchase order, please. Mailed payments are due (arrived to me) within 8 days. Paypal payments can be made through the "Pay Now" tab on the Ruby Lane purchase order.

*All our items are antique or vintage with an age related patina that will show normal wear from being handled and used. Please expect small scratches or scuffs, oxidation and/or tarnish on metals.

*Please contact us through the Ruby Lane website messages. If you email us through the regular email, not through Ruby Lane, your email might be accidentally overlooked or the response could be delayed. We respond to Ruby Lane website messages within 24 to 36 hours, usually sooner.

* All items paid for through Paypal are shipped only to the buyer's shipping address as it appears on the Paypal payment. I print the shipping label directly from Paypal. There are no exceptions, please have your preferred shipping address visible on your Paypal payment.

*If you live in the Chicago area and want to pick up an item, I only accept cash on delivery for pick-ups, no Paypal, because Paypal does not offer any seller protection unless there is proof of delivery through the mail.

* 10.25% IL Sales tax is added to the purchase price of all items sold within the state of Illinois.

*Please note: When Paypal is used to pay, Paypal's Protection Policy requires us to follow certain rules:

1. We must ship only to the address listed on the buyer's paypal account at the time of payment.

2. All items must be shipped with tracking (delivery confirmation) and full insurance.

3. All items shipped for a combined cost of $750 or more require signature confirmation.

4. International shipping is decided on a case to case basis. In cases where I am able to ship internationally, all international shipments are sent by Priority Express Mail International with tracking and full insurance.

5. Full selling value on International shipments is declared for customs and any customs fees or taxes are the responsibility of the buyer and not included in the shipping price.

6. All items must ship within 6 days of the payment date to be eligible for the Paypal protection policy. I cannot delay a shipment for longer than 6 days even when the buyer requests it.

*We ship within three business days of cleared payment but usually sooner, often by next business day. We do not ship on Saturdays, Sundays or holidays.

*We accept Paypal and U.S. money order for payment.

*Sorry, we do not accept personal checks or cashiers checks for payment.
