We accept payments through PayPal, the safest way to pay for your purchases. We ship within one day of receiving cleared payment.
Our preferred shipping method for books, catalogs and small items is United States Postal Service Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation and Insurance where required. UPS is an available alternative and may be preferred for some items. For fragile items, furniture or bulky items, professional packing and alternate delivery methods may be necessary. For items designated as "Pickup Only," packing and shipping solutions can be suggested on request. International purchasers are responsible for all taxes, duties, brokerage fees and any other costs associated with delivering purchased items across international boundaries.
We do not ship to any location that would be in violation of any U.S. economic or trade sanctions including OFAC Restricted Countries. Also, we do not ship to any location where our insurance provider would deny coverage.
Unless otherwise specified, all items we sell are guaranteed to be as represented with a 7 day return policy. If, within seven days of the date of delivery, the buyer can demonstrate to us that the item was substantively misrepresented, the buyer may return the item to us, in the same condition as when shipped by us, for a full refund of the sales price, excluding shipping and handling charges. Buyer is responsible for packing and return shipping costs. Please contact us before making your return for a return authorization and delivery information.
