I AM A LONG TIME TRUSTED EBAY SELLER

I have been dealing in antiques, art and collectibles for many years, and selling on eBay for 10 years. I treat every customer like family. Please read my about me page, and check out my feedback. My listings all include vital information which you will find informative and cover most of your questions. Please take a minute to read everything. If you have questions, you can call me at home at (619) 299-3448. Thank You, Christian Chaffee


ITEM DESCRIPTION

This is an unusual discovery, from an old estate collection.

I am not exactly sure what I have here. The larger object in the center is a buckle made of solid bronze, and the 4 smaller items look like they may have gone on a belt.

These look very old, and the former collector had this box custom designed to hold these, so they could be ancient.


ITEM MEASUREMENTS

This item measures about 6" wide by 2" tall by 5" deep.



















THIS ITEMS CONDITION REPORT

This is in good condition.


ITEM WEIGHT

This weighs about 14.4 oz overall before packing.

The buckle weighs about 5 oz.

The smallest ornament weighs about .4 oz.


SHIPPING INFORMATION

I will be sending your item from San Diego, California 92116 USA.

I normally send most items, which can be packed in a box measuring up to 12 x 12 x 9, by USPS Priority Mail with full value insurance, and delivery confirmation.

Larger items are usually sent by ground service.

I can take very large and heavy items to Greyhound, which can ship larger items fast and economically, but you will need to pick it up at your local Greyhound Package Express station. Package Express services are not available at all greyhound bus stations, so you do need to find out where your nearest Greyhound Package Express station is located. I do charge $20 to take large items downtown to our mail Greyhound station, to cover the fuel, and time required to do this.

If you want your item shipped by another method, please email me with special instructions.

Please note that all shipping cost estimates are just that...estimates, as the item is not actually packed until it has been sold, and it's destination is known.

Our shipping cost estimates are normally accurate, but, it may cost more to ship your item than we had thought. If this happens, you will be responsible to pay the additional shipping costs, and we will provide you with proof of the additional shipping costs upon request.

If we discover that we have over charged you on shipping costs, we will refund the difference.


PACKING AND HANDLING CHARGES

As you know, shipping costs have been increasing these days. I don't attempt to make money on packing and shipping, but I do want to break even on providing these services.

I do charge a minimum of $2, with the cost increasing depending on the size of the box, and materials required to pack the item properly.

The larger and more fragile an item, the more it costs me to pack it properly. If an item is fragile, I pack it to survive the shipping according to the accepted standards required by the shipper, and also to the best of my ability.

On expensive fragile items, we may need to double box them. This will require additional labor and material costs. I would rather pack your item properly to make sure that the item arrives intact, rather than to deal with a claim.

I care about the survival of the items I sell on eBay, and I want them to arrive in the same condition as when sent.

In compliance with Ebay guidelines, we will now be requiring a signature confirmation on domestic shipping, and a return receipt with international shipping. These cost an extra $2.20. Also, insurance is not determined and added into the cost until after purchase.


EVERY ITEM IS GUARANTEED TO BE AS DESCRIBED

Every item I offer is guaranteed to be in as described condition, as written in my listings.

I sell mostly antiques and collectibles, which will usually have the normal wear that you would expect to occur from normal use and age.

You are guaranteed that there are no repairs, alterations, or damage, unless I specifically mention them in my condition report above.


I SELL ONLY GENUINE ORIGINAL ITEMS

I do my very best to accurately represent each and every item I sell. I do not sell fakes or reproductions of any kind, unless they are clearly described as such.

I guarantee every item I sell to be authentic, and to be made in the time period as represented.

I have been buying and selling all types of items since the late 1960's so I usually spot reproductions, fakes and alterations to items with ease.

I welcome input from dealers and collectors in specialized areas, to help insure my listings are complete and accurate.


RECEIVING YOUR EBAY INVOICE

If you are the winning bidder, I will send you an eBay invoice with the total cost, including: packing labor, materials, shipping costs, insurance, and any additional related costs. If the listing ends over the weekend, you will normally receive an invoice on Monday.


CUSTOMERS FROM FOREIGN COUNTRIES

We welcome your payment by Paypal. You must include any special mailing instructions with your payment.


PAYING WITH PAYPAL

I welcome your payment by Paypal.

Master Card funded PayPal payment is not accepted.  If this is the method you use, please email us for options.


CALIFORNIA STATE SALES TAX

All California residents must pay 8.25% sales tax based on the city you live in If you have a California resale number, you will need to provide a xerox copy with your payment, or include the tax due. I am sorry, but there are no exceptions, as this is the law.


PAYMENT FOR ITEMS

I expect payment to be made within 3 days from the date of your invoice.


SHIPPING OF ITEMS

I do shipping at least once a week, and more often if possible.

As you know, eBay is making some shipping policy changes which we will be required to follow as they are implemented.

If the item is large or heavy it can be shipped using UPS or Greyhound bus lines, but you would need to pick up the item at your local Greyhound bus station which has package express services available.


SHIPPING COST SAVINGS

If you plan on bidding on multiple items, I will hold your item here until the end of the upcoming auction so I can ship both items together.

I will pass on 100% of the savings to you, in the form of reduced shipping costs, which will show on the invoice for the additional item.


PAYMENTS ON EXPENSIVE ITEMS

If you need some time to pay for an expensive item, you must email me for approval prior to bidding.

With prior approval, I will consider a payment plan, as long as the transaction is completed in a time frame which conforms to eBay's new policy.


FEEDBACK

I enjoy leaving you great feedback as soon as our transaction is complete to let everyone on eBay know you do business in a responsible way.


REFUNDS & DAMAGED ITEMS

Refunds: If I misrepresent an item, such that it is worth less money due to an omission or error in my listing, you may return it for a full refund including all shipping costs, so you do not lose a dime. An example of this would be undisclosed existing damage, like a chip or crack. If the item description is in error, but it has no effect on it's monetary value, I may refuse to allow a refund. An example would be if the measurements were slightly off… if I state a vase is 10 1/2 inches tall, and you discover it is 10 3/8 tall, a refund would likely not be granted.

Damaged Items: If your item is damaged in shipping, the shipper is responsible, but we will assist you with the claim process. You will need to save the box and packing materials to show the shipper. This is the proof that they require, so if you discard the packing materials, your claim may be denied. Shippers do not accept parcels packed in damaged boxes as a rule, so damage is normally evidenced by damage to the box.
