Purchase / Shipping Info

Placing an Order

You can browse through my inventory by clicking on the online catalog link at the top of the page or on the home page.  To see more information about an item and more photographs, simply click on that item.  From the item page you can add the item to your shopping bag.  You can add as many items to your bag as you would like before actually checking out to purchase them – this will allow you to combine items in the order and save money on shipping.  At any point while you are shopping, you can click on your shopping bag to see what is in it.  When you check out, you will see the subtotal for the items in your bag, the shipping cost and sales tax if you are a Pennsylvania resident.  Items can always be deleted from your bag before you actually complete your purchase.

Payment Methods

My preferred payment method is Paypal or credit card.  Currently, the shopping cart is set up so that items can be ordered and paid for immediately using Paypal.  You can use a credit card to pay through Paypal without having a Paypal account.  If you would rather send a check or money order, you can choose that option during check out.  Items will not be shipped until after payment has arrived.

Shipping Information

Most items are sent via priority mail or first class mail.  The shopping cart is currently set up to calculate shipping charges by weight.  Items or combinations of items that weigh 6 ounces or under will be sent by first class mail while items or combinations of items that weigh more than 6 ounces will be sent via priority mail.  For first class mail, the standard shipping and handling charge is $4.00.  The cost of priority mail begins at $7.00.  Fragile items or items of greater value will always be sent via priority mail.  Added insurance may be suggested on items or orders of high value.  The price for shipping larger items will be based upon the zip code where they are being shipped to.  You can always e-mail me for a shipping quote on any item.  I will ship most items overseas, but please e-mail me to verify this and to get a shipping quote.

Returns

I try to describe items in great detail and I typically include multiple photographs.  However, if you are unhappy with your item after it has been received, it can be returned for a full refund (within 7 days after its arrival at your location).  You will be responsible for the all shipping charges.  Once I have received the item, the cost of the item will be refunded to you.

Lay-away Policy

I will certainly be willing to place an item on lay-away.  The terms of lay-away items are a 25% deposit to hold the item.  The balance must then be paid in 30 days.  If the balance is not paid, the deposit will be forfeited.
