I will always upgrade postage if more urgent service is required, please contact me if you would like this and I will be able to give you a quote.

Feedback is appreciated as it lets us know your item has arrived safely, I will then leave same for you. If you feel unable to leave 5* ratings please contact me before leaving feedback, I want happy customers and am always willing to learn where improvements can be made. Low (even 4 star) ratings affect how a business can operate on ebay and give no opportunity for improvement and a better buying experience for others. Your assistance in helping us be the seller our buyers want is appreciated. Items sold are used, vintage or antique unless otherwise stated and will show signs of wear commensurate with age. Any item visible in photograph which is not mentioned in the title or description is not included in this lot, and is not for sale unless listed elsewhere in my ebay shop. If buying more than one item please add to basket and request total to get combined postage discount. Payment by paypal please if not collecting. If you are collecting then payment in cash is preferred but paypal payment can be made in advance or at the time if preferred by buyer. Businesses are welcome to use bank transfer, please contact me for account details after purchasing. Very many thanks for looking, - I DO offer refunds on items significantly not as described or damaged in transit. Please use contact seller if you feel you need to return an item for any reason. Buyer pays postage for returns unless item significantly not as described. I do not as a rule give partial refunds. (Distance Selling Regulations complied with for your protection.) STANDARD INFO YOU MAY FIND USEFUL POSTAGE (Examples – correct at June 2015, since then actual costs may have changed but pricing principles remain the same) Please note I live in a rural area and have access to a post office on Tuesday Friday and Saturday. Your item will be posted whichever one of these occurs soonest after your purchase. If your item is more urgent please contact me before buying to check I can get the item to you as needed In the last two years there have been high increases in charges of shipping with all Carriers (Both Royal Mail and Couriers) I know costs are important to us all, but I have no control over the price of postage, nor the fee ebay charge sellers on postage costs. Please see table below for some examples of how I calculate postage charge. (These are just examples and actual cost may vary – please ask if you would like an accurate breakdown for this listing) Again please note I do NOT send items loose in plastic bags, or inadequately packed, you may pay me a bit more for postage but item will be sent well protected in clean materials.

If postage is more than figure charged I will pay the extra. Please remember this when bidding and leaving feedback. I try to be fair to all buyers. As you can see having to have a parcel signed for increases security for both buyer and seller but adds about £1.10 to postage cost so let me know if you would rather take responsibility for loss, I will get proof of posting to assist in any claim. You can also see the additional cost of Special Delivery to provide insurance for more valuable items, I will use the most appropriate (in my view) method of posting for your item but please let me know if you have a preference. Once posted I have no control of delivery time, which will vary depending on method used. Special Delivery SHOULD be 24 hours, 1st class parcel approx. 48 hours and courier services can be 5 -7 days. If your item is longer than this arriving after I provide the tracking number please let me know, again use “contact seller” I am also disappointed in delays, but please remember low stars on postage affects me not the postal service or ebay. I will do my best to sort out any delayed deliveries. Please remember there is NO service that will provide insurance for breakable items, I pack with safety and item protection in mind. This can mean more packing = more weight = more cost, but I am sure we both agree your receiving the item in good condition is the most important thing. INFORMATION BELOW IS ADDED TO HELP LESS EXPERIENCED BUYERS UNDERSTAND MORE ABOUT LISTINGS AND CHARGES. All items are described as I see them. I try to be accurate but am capable of error, and different people’s views of an item vary, so if the item is not what you expected, please contact me to discuss any problems before leaving feedback. I want you to be happy with your purchase. I will always give a refund plus the return postage if I have fundamentally mis-described item, items must be returned in original condition, notification that you want to return must be made within 14 days. Generally I do not give partial refunds. If an item is received damaged in transit we can often sort this out by means of photographs, return will not normally be necessary. Before bidding please make sure you fully read the description and are happy the item you are bidding on is what you want, do not assume anything. Items I sell are secondhand / vintage or antique and will have a condition which in my opinion is in line with this. Items will not be as new unless stated. Please look carefully at photos as these form part of the item description and are to help you determine if the item is acceptable to you. Photos are not the size of the item, they are cropped to give best view within Ebay space. Please check size of any item or ask for further photos if you would like to see anything that is not as clear as you would like. Feedback is appreciated after you have received your item and are happy with the transaction – which you can let me know by leaving positive feedback with 5 stars. If you feel unable to do this please contact me so that we can discuss any problems or failings in our service – this not only helps you feel satisfied but helps us to improve. I am very happy to answer any questions, so simply ask through the “contact seller” link at the bottom of the page EBAY FEES - THERE ARE MANY COSTS AND FEES TO EBAYING. For an item these include a listing fee (on over a given number of items listed in a month), a sale fee (based on a percentage of sale cost), a fee charged on postage cost (10% of total), a monthly account fee and if you pay by paypal a fee for handling your payment (10% plus a fixed charge). On average the fees add up to between 20% and 27% of any item’s sale plus postage price. Please remember this when bidding – it is like going to an auction house, these fees represent the auction house commission that would be added to the hammer price, but on Ebay you see the inclusive figure not the nett bid one with further charges to add, however the seller has these to pay out of whatever you pay for an item and shipping.
