I gladly combine shipping.
Except in rare circumstances or if you purchased Saturday or Sunday, I ship within 24-hours.

I charge as close to the actual cost of shipping as I can.
Remember that a hardcover or extra heavy books take
 extra packing material to keep it safe for you.  If I have
miscalculated $1 or more, I refund it.  So, if you see a
refund of 50 or 75 cents you’ll know why I sent it.

******If you want greater care than normal for packaging,
please understand that boxes cost and be willing to
add $1 to $2 to your order for the cost of the box.  Boxes
are the only way to ensure they arrive in perfect condition.
Don’t expect $5 or $6 wrapping for a $3 or $4 item.  I’m
just asking for reasonable expectations. 

Check the date on the label before you decide I didn’t
ship quickly.  I can get it in the mail but the postal
service may delay it.  Media mail is the slowest shipping
 available can be delayed up to two weeks if they have
 higher priority mail to deliver.

If you do have a problem with a purchase, please
contact me before leaving damaging (neutral
or negative) feedback.  I promise to do my best to
resolve it.  I have a high customer satisfaction
rating and will definitely work with you to keep it.  
I use my eBay funds for my husband’s medication
 for Parkinson’s and spinal stenosis so your happiness
is a prime concern.  We are retired and money is scarce.
