Please bear in mind we sell vintage and antique items which have seen use over the years and usually show wear appropriate to their age. Most often linens will require washing and pressing by the
buyer. Silver plate is polished as heavy patina often hides significant wear. As it is then stored away, it may need minor cleaning by the buyer. We will be happy to answer any inquiries.

Before bidding or
purchasing this item, please take a moment to read the
description and information regarding combined shipping, payment,
shipping delivery time frames & handling costs. It will
avoid disappointments later. Thank you .
Multiple winning items will be combined to save on shipping. I must stress
please always wait for my invoice when purchasing multiple items so the invoice
will reflect a combined shipping discount. The Ebay calculator does
not calculate the costs correctly for multiple items and this results
in shipping underpayment, overpayment, excess charges by Ebay to the seller and
extra time refunding partial refunds or issuing a second invoice for additional
I politely request that all items be
paid for within 7 days.
Items are shipped 24-48 hours of receiving payment
excluding weekends and national holidays. It
can take Canada Post up to 6
days to deliver in Canada
and 6 to 12 business days for U.S.
delivery. Parcels being shipped to the U.S. and overseas will need to be
cleared by that country's customs department. Occasionally this also can
slow down the delivery process. Any delay of slow delivery by
Canada Post or the U.S.
postal service are out of the sellers control once the
items leave their hands. Please be patient.
***International Buyers – Please Note: Cost of
shipping and any duties is the responsibility of purchaser. Please check
with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs
will be prior to bidding/buying.
We can not mark merchandise values
below value or mark items as gifts - Canadian, U.S. and International
government regulations prohibit this.
For a small or light item that can
fit in a bubble envelope, we always absorb the cost of a padded envelope and there is no handling
charge. A fragile or large
item requires a box and will have a small handling cost of $1 to $3 depending
on the amount of packing supplies used such as bubble wrap, sturdy boxes, peanuts and tape.
We are committed to getting your
items to you safely. Please keep in mind that shipping is more than what a
carrier charges us. We pride ourselves on getting your treasures to you safely
and to offset some of the shipping overhead costs we incorporate a small
handling fee. Please take this into consideration when leaving feedback.
I ship fast, I
package well, and I communicate and
describe items for sale to the best of my abilities! But, I am human and am subject to making mistakes. Please be gracious in your ratings
unless there is actually a problem. If
there is a problem, please email me first so we can work it out. I highly value my Seller's reputation, feedback, and my
repeat customers! I strive to
provide a FIVE STAR transaction for
each customer…... Please let me know if I
all about the stars...
eBay has instituted a 5 star rating
system (DSR) to rate sellers on 4 categories - how well the item is described, communications,
delivery times and shipping costs. There is much confusion about the
DSR ratings, what they really mean, and how they are actually used by Ebay to
leave star ratings during the Feedback process, Ebay will instruct you that a 4
star rating is good. But, did you know that a seller is penalized by Ebay for
receiving only four out of five stars? Many buyers don't realize it, but eBay now counts anything below a
"5" detailed star rating against sellers. Anything less than
"5" can mean our items will be harder to find in search,
or our seller fees will be higher.
So I ask that you take a moment
before leaving my rating --- I
hope you will consider the quality of my packing (even with my low S&H
charges!), the date of shipment, the communication I
have provided, and the accuracy of my descriptions!
