Hey there, valued bidders! We want your experience with us to be awesome, so here's a friendly rundown of some of our auction terms & frequently asked questions:

HASSLE-FREE RETURNS!
No worries if you change your mind or don’t like your item for ANY REASON – you can return your purchase within 30 days, and we've got the return costs covered! Just hit us up through eBay's return process, and we'll get things sorted. Please make sure you select “didn’t like it” as your reason to ensure you get a quick and fully FREE return. Not following this process might mean a less than full refund or missing out on future bids, so please keep that in mind.

SHIPPING AND HANDLING CONSIDERATIONS
We want to be upfront – no wiggle room on shipping and handling costs. Check out our policies and factor in these costs when you bid to avoid any surprises. There is no reduction in the stated shipping and handling costs/terms. Even when combining. Please factor each stated cost into your bids.

PAYMENT TIMEFRAME
Quick payments are our jam. You've got a sweet 7-day window to make the magic happen. This lets you combine items from two weeks of auctions (though shipping costs may not budge). Orders not paid within 7 days? We'll have to cancel them and say goodbye to the non-paying bidder.

WHY WE BLOCK ACCOUNTS
We're all about good vibes, so we may block your account for things like not paying, leaving neutral or negative feedback without talking to us first or giving us a chance to fix whatever your issue may be through our return process, bid retractions, opening a return with a damaging reason, or any not-so-nice behavior. Let's keep it positive!

AUCTION ENDING POLICY
Sorry, but we can't end auctions early. We really hate saying no, but rules are rules.

GRADING
We do our best to fairly grade all items, but since grading can be somewhat subjective, we include many pictures and grade ranges/estimates in every auction so you can bid according to your own comfort level. Lots are typically given an “average grade”, each book is not individually graded. Please base your bids on the average across the entire run and the photographs we provide.

Got an Issue with Your Purchase? No sweat! You're covered by our 30-day FREE RETURN policy. Just shoot us a message, and we'll sort things out.


Thanks a bunch for choosing us on eBay! If you've got questions or need a hand, drop us a line. Happy bidding!
