Shipping: We can ship this in the US for $ACTUAL Priority Mail. We will pay for insurance and signature confirmation when necessary as well as tracking information in the United States through the USPS. Because the USPS charges different rates depending on where you live away from our zip code of 11971, the cost to ship to California for example is astronomical and we may need to ship your parcel by PARCEL POST but rest assured that your package will be insured and contain delivery confirmation. We ship PRIORITY MAIL most of the time, but in some cases, it is not feasible to ship as such and we will notify you by email once we find out about your shipping address. Also at times, for heavier pieces or china, we find it much more feasible to ship UPS, and if that is okay with you, your parcel could be shipped that way. Thank you.
We will reimburse you any amount over $1.00 if the shipping is less than we quote. We need to include delivery confirmation because we have sent packages/parcels that some people have said have not received and since we sometimes sell for other people and have to pay them, we need to have proof of mailing.
Please ask any questions and we'll do our best to answer..........Happy Collecting and Autumn Season! Cheers! ~~ PLEASE SEE OUR OTHER AUCTIONS.
