ROYAL MAIL HAVE JUST IMPLENTED SIGNIFICANT PRICE RISES. OUR BUSINESS MODEL IS TO START ALL ITEMS AT 99p SO BIDDERS DECIDE THE VALUE OF THE GOODS AND THIS DOES NOT ALLOW US TO INCORPORATE POSTAGE PRICING INTO THE AUCTIONS (UNLESS IT IS A BUY IT NOW) SO WE HAVE TO CHARGE WHAT IT COSTS US. AN EXAMPLE OF THE PRICE HIKE IS: OLD ROYAL MAIL COST INTERNATIONAL SIGNED FOR TO USA WAS £7.02 THE NEW PRICES WILL BE £8.45 FOR EXACTLY THE SAME SERVICE. WE APOLOGISE FOR THE INCREASE IN PRICES, THERE WAS NO WAY WE COULD ABSORB THAT KIND OF PRICE INCREASE :O(
HERE IS A LINK TO THE NEW ROYAL MAIL PRICES:
OUR ADVICE WOULD BE FOR YOU TO BUY MORE THAN ONE ITEM SO WE CAN COMBINE THE POSTAGE COSTS FOR YOU SO YOU CAN GET MUCH BETTER SHIPPING VALUE AND BEAT THE PRICE RISES!!
SPECIAL DELIVERY OPTION IS THERE FOR INSURANCE REASONS - IF YOU WISH AN ITEM TO BE SENT QUICKER THAN OUR 2 WORKING DAYS QUOTED, PLEASE LET US KNOW SO WE CAN ACCOMMODATE THIS REQUEST!
ALL ITEMS WHICH FINISH OVER £20 IN VALUE WILL BE SHIPPED AT OUR TRACKED & INSURED RATE, REGARDLESS OF DESTINATION. WE WILL SEND YOU AN AMENDED INVOICE. THIS IS FOR YOUR PROTECTION AND OURS AS ITEMS DO GO MISSING IN THE POST.
Please note that the estimated delivery quoted at the top of the auction is ebay's and not ours. We do not guarantee this time frame and postal services do not either. Royal Mail will not even consider a international parcel missing until 30 working days has elapsed (15 working days for domestic) and once we have posted we have no power to speed up the postal gods. Your patience is appreciated in waiting for your item to arrive. If you need an item fast, please contact us and we can arrange a different carrier but this will involve higher postage costs.
We live in a rural location and post runs are done three times a week on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays but we do try to get things out as quick as possible.
We combine shipping!
Please advise me of any problems before leaving feedback, as all issues can and will be rectified.
WE OPERATE A QUIBBLE FREE RETURN POLICY FOR THE FIRST 7 DAYS; IT MAY JUST BE THAT YOU DO NOT LIKE AN ITEM AND THAT'S REASON ENOUGH FOR US TO ACCEPT A RETURN SO YOU CAN BID WITH ASSURANCE AND CONFIDENCE.
Items to be paid for within 3 days of auction ending. Your bid will be binding and we expect you to honour it when the auction completes; we don't cancel auctions after bidding is finished as this costs us money and time so please be sure before you bid!
If you intend on bidding and don't pay you will be reported to EBay with a non paying dispute automatically after 8 days.
