Frequently Asked Questions
 Q: There are multiple items in the description but one one listed in the title...
  A: We are limited in the number of characters we can include in a title so we may not be able to fit all of the items in. Each item included in a lot will be both described in the auction and pictured. Buyers are bidding on what they see in the pictures and read in the description.
 Q: Your description looks blank, I need info about this piece!
  A: Sometimes it takes a few moments for our descriptions to load because we have a few videos and many pictures. Please be patient, you will see all the information listed :-) If there is something else you need help with please let us know.
 Q: What are those weird letter/number codes at the end of your titles?
  A: Those are just our own way of knowing where to locate your item and to keep track of our inventory. We put a code in the title and at the top of the description. They have nothing to do with the items themselves they are just for our reference.
 Q: Do you combine shipping?
  A: Yes, for most items we do. If you are buying multiple items and would like combined shipping, please wait until several end to complete checkout and pay all at once. We require payment within 10 days and the discount will calculate when you complete checkout for all orders together. Please Note: We cannot combine items that have already been paid.
 Q: What is your return policy?
  A: Since most of our items are auctions, we do have a policy that all sales are final. If something arrives and is not as described, please contact us at info@vintagerarestuff.com or preferably through the ask the seller a question link on the item page.
 Q: How much is the Shipping and Handling charge?
  A: With the exception of some very large and/or delicate items, there is $2.50 handling fee for the first lot, $1.50 for each additional item. This is on top of combined shipping weight cost. Shipping calculator already has handling figured and to view this use the "shipping and payments" tab in each auction.
 Q: What shipping method should I choose?
  A: On most of our paper items we offer media, parcel and priority. Media rate is a bit tricky, as some post offices will open up packages and deem them unfit for media. While this doesn't happen often, it's worth mentioning. Media mail is also the slowest. We've seen it take 6 weeks from NY to CA. It is entirely up to you which method you choose.
 Q: Do you ship internationally?
  A: Yes, most items. There is a shipping and payments tab in each auction that you can enter your country and in some cases, your postal code. If something looks small enough to fit in a flat rate envelope but isn't calculating, please contact us so we can make the adjustment. We DO NOT ship first class or in an M-Bag. These options offer no tracking.
 Q: Will you declare items as 'gifts'? What about customs fees?
  A: No, sorry. We cannot, by law, declare items as gifts and we do not change the value. There might be a customs fee, which we cannot control. Please be aware that if you buy from out of country sellers you do risk getting charged at customs. We are not responsible for paying this fee or for knowing how much the fee may be.
 Q: Why am I blocked from bidding?
  A: If you do not have paypal, this is probably why. Please contact us to remove the restrictions. If we see you retract a bid and say entered wrong amount but it's obvious the bids were being tested, we'll ban you from bidding. A bid is a contract. If you have any unpaid item strikes, you are not initially permitted to bid, but contact us to discuss.
 Q: Can I speak with a live person?
  A: Sure! We encourage you to e-mail us at info@vintagerarestuff.com or by clicking 'ask the seller a question' on the listing page, but we are open 9-5 monday - friday EST. We can be reached at 516-489-6004.
 Q: Why haven't you answered my question?
  A: We answer every question received through 'ask the seller a question' within 24-48 hours. There are some weekends that we are not by the computer, so if you ask a question on friday evening, you may receive your response on monday. We always strive to answer questions quickly :-). Our email address is info@vintagerarestuff.com, phone: 516-489-6004
 Q: What are those detailed seller ratings when I leave feedback?
  A: Ebay now has a feedback system with Detailed Seller Ratings (DSRs). We want you to be able to leave positive feedback and 5 STARS for each rating! It is very important to us that you are able to leave 5 stars. We are very upfront with our handling time so please take that into account when leaving your rating. Please contact us with any concerns.
 Q: I won the auction, but I still have questions about the item before I pay...
  A: Please ask all questions and take note of shipping times/costs BEFORE bidding. Once a bid is placed it is a contract that you will pay for the item. We're happy to answer any questions you have while the auction is still running, just don't leave it to the last minute. Please only bid if you are serious about paying for the item. Happy Bidding!
 Q: When can I expect my order to arrive?
  A: We have an up to 5 business day handling time. This is the time it takes to process your order. We can't stress this enough! If you pick priority mail, for example, which is 2-3 days, it will be up to 5 days plus 2-3 days. If you have an extenuating circumstance, please contact us and we can work out quicker arrangements :-).
 Q: Can I pick the item up in person? What is your mailing address?
  A: All of our items can be picked up. Please call us at least 2 days before you plan on coming at 516 489 6004. We're located at 94C Cherry Valley Ave, West Hempstead, NY 11552. If you wish to pay via paypal before please let us know so we can remove the shipping charge before you pay, otherwise it automatically goes to our shipping dept to be sent.
 Q: Will you offer a buy it now price on this auction?
  A: Once an auction goes live it's our policy to let it run until the end. If it doesn't sell we'll often relist with a buy it now.
