THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO ACTUALLY READ THIS.. & READ OUR FEEDBACK as well... We are 1 of the GOOD GUYS.... A ONLY , however on small items..
The LONG and WINDING ROAD of SMALL PRINT. So sorry to have to go on & on about this folks....... Well those are important to the sellers ratings..
& a couple of those categories... Then packaging supplies & cost of gas to drop off packages , the many hours of labor ; etc, etc.... Who offer larger items such as furniture / large art / lighting / etc we don't "create" postal costs.. But we already spend a couple thousand a year just on packing supplies so that your items arrive safely!
Another factor a lot of buyers may not realize... When we started over 18 years ago... I believe the FF was 2.8 %? Now its nearly 10 %....... We supply several images in ALL of our listings.....
& at times we show images with giant arrows pointing at any flaws we feel not only need to be mentioned... But also pointed out visually.. Won't be from our end... At some point we check our emails 7 days a week & are always quick as possible to respond to any questions.....
We apologize for having to spout all this... But believe it or not... Boy oh boy is that a misconception! & vintage items, are just that : vintage.... & are not going to be mint , because there is no such thing as mint when something is 25 - 75 years young! & we will be here for you WE DO OUR BEST TO ACCURATELY DESCRIBE OUR ITEMS CONDITION.... Despite all the rules regulations & changes we sellers all have to spout off about.... Its been a blast and hopefully will continue to be no matter what new "twists" come our way... Get images that make Supersized seem small. The item "Vtg mcm OSCAR BUCHER California rattle MOON POT POD closed form STUDIO POTTERY" is in sale since Sunday, February 25, 2018.
