Terms of Sale:
  • All sales are final unless we have hugely misrepresented the item in some manner  by mistake.  We are careful but not perfect - who is?  :)
  • Most of the items we sell are vintage or hard to find pre-owned items though we do sell NEW items as well.  Please review the item description for more details about this item.  In regards to pre-owned items, we try our best to accurately describe each item but may miss minor flaws though we do try our best to describe items accurately.  With that being said, unless we say an item is PERFECT, NEW or MINT, expect that there will be at least minor signs of use.  Please ask questions if you have any and please supersize the pictures for a better view. 
  • ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS message us if you have a problem with your order before leaving feedback.

About Us:

We are a mother and daughter team and have been selling on ebay for a few years.  We are Powersellers which means we have demonstrated a level of success with ebay and have had many satisfied customers.  We are always willing to work with buyers who have any problems with their purchase and love having happy customers.  We usually ship very quickly but we do take care of three sick family members so sometimes, unexpectedly, there may be delays.  If there are delays longer than what is stated in the auction, we will be sure to notify you by email.

We enjoy eBay very much and look forward to continuing to build some good eBay relationships!
