All items are sold"as is." It is my practice not to sell damaged items -- sometimes a vintage item will have a nick, scratch, chipped paint, etc. that adds to character, and understood by vintage buyers/collectors, and those imperfections are pointed out in the item's description and photograph, and I am careful to describe them.
I get boxes for shipping anywhere and everywhere, and you may get a Porcelain Collector's Plate in a sturdy "Pizza" box! This, is, in no way, a show of disrespect to the item or the buyer. Generally there are no returns, however, if an item description was considerably inaccurate, I will make an exception.
Except for my fish,"Abe Vigoda," I live in a pet and smoke free home. I hope you enjoy shopping, in my Vintage Shop, and please drop by again!
