WHERE WE SHIP:

3. GRADING SCALE FOR USED CLOTHING:
Mint condition: This is an item that looks new, never wore/tried on/wore maybe once. No holes, rips, tears, stains, pulls, etc.
Great condition: This is an item that looks to be very well looked after/cared for properly, washed and worn. No holes, rips, tears, stains, pulls, discoloration or fading.
Good condition: This is an item that looks to be well looked after, washed and worn. Description in the listing will note any 'flaws' that make this a 'good' item as opposed to a great/mint one.
Decent/wearable condition: This is an item that looks to be well worn/washed repeatedly and still has 'life' in it, but is far from new. We strive to list very little of this type of product, because it isn't what we want to be known for selling. Description in the listing will note any and all flaws with the item.
4. MERCHANDISE: USED
(NOT CLOTHING, please see above for clothing grading)
Mint: An item that is in it's original box, container, etc. Almost new in appearance. Appropriate for gift giving.
Great: An item that is not with it's original box or container, etc. but appears in a condition worthy of gift giving. No scratches, holes, tears, rips, stains or discoloration.
Good: An item that appears in very usable condition, but may be slightly dusty or require minor cleaning. Description will define this more clearly.
Used. Not Abused: In good condition, as noted in the "Good:" section, but may require more cleaning, polishing, etc. to bring out the 'glory' in the piece. Description will define this more clearly.
Used. Usable: In okay condition, as note in "Used. Not Abused:" section, will require minor repair, polishing, etc. Description will define this more clearly.
5. OUR DEFINITIONS:
Antique: In terms of 'antique' WE ARE NOT PROFESSIONAL ANTIQUE APPRAISERS we would make every effort describe the item as clearly as possible. If purchased at an auction, we will not know it's lineage, etc. If it is a reproduction or fake. We price things reasonable, list them to the BEST OF OUR KNOWLEDGE and you may just get some buried treasures from our store, because we don't have antique knowledge. ** IN OTHER WORDS** we do not intentionally list any item that is a known reproduction or fake and classify it as an authentic original or antique. What information WE 'know' we will share...we won't ASSUME anything. QUESTIONS are always welcome.
Retro: An item from the 1950's through the 1990's. This is OUR estimation...as a guide for customers, and is no way what other sellers may list their items as.
