This is an antique spice tin from early 1900's. - from my grandfather's collection
Describing condition on such items is so difficult because some people have seen better or worse conditions of things and it's hard to measure, each person's view of mint or excellent is so different,so we take as many pictures as we can, and describe as best we can.
CLEANING OF ANTIQUES IS OPTIONAL, WE ARE HAPPY TO DO IT
All of these items are in their condition that they handed me them in, and if anyone wants an item cleaned or shined, let me know in an email before or after buying it, we are shipping things as is, because we were told by several dealers that they have more value in "antique" looking condition, instead of all shined up. But we are happy to clean them if anyone wants it to look newer.
ALL ITEMS ARE SHIPPED WITH INSURANCE & DELIVERY CONFIRMATION
some items are valued high enough, people have to sign for them upon delivery. And any damaged items must be reported immediately to me, so I can open a claim, and buyer must save all of the packaging.
We want all of these items to end up in beloved homes, for they were treasured here with us and our family. Enjoy them, and know that they were preserved and taken care of by a wonderful family and they want everyone to benefit from the purchase of these rare items.
OUR STORE :
**We strive for 5 stars in our ratings. We try to sell popular and unique items, and support our Ebay business. Buyers have no idea how expensive it is to sell on here and toship. It is the only way to get it to you, and shipping is outrageous, but please don't take that out on us. There is no other way to get it to you. We try anyway to sell, pay all fees, and still carry great items. Care is put into every package and we make every effort to do 110% all of the time. 5 Star ratings lower fees for us, and costs for you, and we would like to know if there is anything more we can do, before leaving us feedback. Thank you for your business, always. Fairytalefashions04
*Shipping Costs The #1 complaint on Ebay is shipping. It's the only way to do internet shopping. When we spend 1 day to 1 week in the mall looking for something, noone considers the gas we spend going all around. And sometimes what we want is not available in our area. We need to turn around the shipping charges in our heads, and realize that this comes right to our door, and needs to be packed properly to arrive after it's transported from place to place. There is no short cut to good shipping, and if you have received poorly packed items, you already know. We don't do that here, we charge what it takes, and pack well and safely with many hidden costs - tape, filler, double boxes, gas to drop it off to ship, etc. and it's essential that buyers understand the other side to shipping costs and understand what we have to charge in order to do it right. Thank you for understanding.
*We don't compare ourselves to any other store on here, people sell new, used, seconds, smoky, returns, etc. all over Ebay. Our items are 1st quality from salesmen and priced so we can stay on Ebay. If there is something less expensive somewhere else, please don't write us about it, we don't take best buys, or answer those emails, it's just unfair. We respect if it's out of your budget, and if you keep looking you will find it. Thank you
* Make sure to ask all questions before bidding
