QUACK MEDICINE CIRCULR & TRADE CARD 1880s KING of the BLOOD, RANSOMs HIVE & TOLU Click images to enlarge Description The letters and ephemera I sell all come from a family collection. I am not a collector or dealer in ephemera, and have very little knowledge in this area, so please ask questions and I'll try to find answers. The material all comes from a family who emigrated from Wales to the United States sometime in the early 1800s. They settled in the area of Utica, NY and this material came from the part of the family who lived in South Trenton, outside Utica (near Herkimer) in Oneida County. The scans &/or pictures you see are of the actual items. I ship 1st Class in a rigid mailer and pack each item with care. I'm always happy to combine shipping if you buy more than one of my items and never add additional "handling" fees.

You are welcome to make payment through PayPal (although we prefer other methods of payment). Or if you live near us, you may pick up & pay in person. Shipping We ship most bulky things by USPS Priority mail service, since their shipping supplies are all free. Letters & most ephemera ship 1st class in stiff or padded envelopes/packets. For heavier things we use Flat-Rate boxes when we can to save you money. Our items are unique & of varying weights and sizes, so we cannot offer the usual shipping discounts. But if you buy more than one item we will repack in one box (if possible) to save you postage. International shipping: We ship by 1st Class International for items up to 4 pounds. For heavier items, we use Priority International. Please note: shipping calculator weight is based on Priority (USA) packaging. We repack items for 1st Class International, so PLEASE CONTACT US TO CONFIRM EXACT SHIPPING AMOUNT BEFORE YOU CHECK OUT. Terms of Sale We ship same or next business day of receipt of your PayPal (or other) payment. If our description contains an error, please advise us so we can correct it as soon as possible. We make every effort to be honest, and we grade condition hard. Our hope is that you will receive an item that is at least as good as what you expected - hopefully even BETTER (never worse). However, being human, sometimes mistakes happen. If you are not pleased with an item because it is not as represented, we will stand behind it & cheerfully give a partial or full refund, or make some other mutually agreed upon settlement. About Us We are not a business. We sell mostly things we have from our family, and since our folks have all passed away now, there's a lot to sift through. Neither my wife nor myself are very knowledgeable in the areas of collectibles and antiques, but that is the kind of thing we're dealing with. Therefore, please be patient with us & understand that we're doing the best we can to honestly & accurately describe each item. Images sell!
