Descriptions and/or Condition:

The items listed for sale on this web site are considered in "Good to Excellent" condition unless otherwise noted.  Because these items have been in use, it is normal to see some wear.  This would include utensil marks on the surface and very slight scratches either from stacking or from cutting of food.  Some wear of the trim would be normal.  It is unrealistic and unreasonable to expect a vintage item to show not wear at all. Collectors of antique/vintage items are often willing to live with a few minor flaws in order to obtain qualities lacking in modern mass-produced goods, qualities like exquisite hand painting.  Any piece with less than 80% of it's trim intact will either not be sold or will be specifically noted.

Shopping on the net is similar to shopping from a catalog....there is no way for you to physically pick the item up and inspect it.  Because of this, we make every effort to accurately describe each and every item we have for sale.  There will always be a picture of the item.  If more pictures are available, you will see a link to the other pictures.  If for any reason you feel that you would like more information please feel free to email us with your questions.

Payment Method:

We accept Money Orders, Cashiers Checks and Personal Checks.  We also accept Major Credit Card payments through PayPal.

  • Merchandise paid for through PayPal will be shipped within 2 business days after receipt of payment.

  • Merchandise paid for through Cashiers Checks and Money Orders will be shipped within 2 business days after receipt of payment.

  • Merchandise paid for with Personal Checks will not be shipped until the check has cleared our bank.  This is approximately 10 business days after deposit in our account.

  • All payments must be made in US dollars and be drawn on, or issued by a US Bank. 


  • Shipping Days are Tuesday and Fridays

  • Shipments are usually through FedEx within the Continental US.  International shipments are through the United States Postal Service.  If your item cannot be shipped via FedEx (because no one is home to accept shipment), please contact us to make alternative arrangements for shipping.  This may be a different price.

  • Shipments to Alaska & Hawaii will be through the US Postal Service and will be a different price than shown.  Please contact us for a price quote on shipping.

  • Shipments to our International Customers will be made through the US Postal Service and will be a different price than shown.  Please contact us for a price quote on shipping.


We have a "No Return" policy.  However, there is always an exception to the rule.  The only exception is if the item we sold you is not as described.  You must contact us by email within 24 hours of confirmed receipt of the item. The item must be returned immediately.

  • The item must be in its original packaging and in exactly the same condition they were in when shipped with our merchandise sticker still attached. 

  • The returned item must be insured for the full amount. Until I receive the item, you are liable for the cost.

  • Due to Customs fees, I do not accept returns on International purchases. Therefore, the sale is complete when the purchased items are delivered to customer, customer's agent, or Customs Agency. Delivery itself finalizes the sale.

  • If these conditions are not met, the return will not be accepted.


  • I do not refund shipping costs or credit card fees.  They will be deducted from the total amount of your refund. 

  • A 10% restocking fee will be charged on any accepted return over $150. 

  • Refunds are issued immediately upon receipt of an accepted return in good condition.


Every precaution is taken to make sure that your item arrives at its destination safe and sound.  Occasionally breakage does occur.  If this happens, it is very important that you contact us by email immediately so that we may notify the shipping company and start the claims process.  If the package you receive appears to be damaged in any way and the delivery person is still there, notify them on the spot!  It usually takes a day or so for the shippers to let us know how they are going to cover the damaged merchandise.  Once we know that the claim is valid and they will reimburse us for the loss, we ask that they send us the check and we will pay you directly for your loss.  In cases where the shipment was made through the US Postal Service, we will fill out our portion of the claim for, attach the insurance receipt and mail the for to you to file from your end.
