Booth Details, Discounts, and Policies  Return to booth

Here is where sellers can list any catch-all policies about their booth. If any of this information is essential to the buying process, the seller will also mention that within their item description -- so don't sweat it if you don't make a habit of looking at the details for every booth!

Booth overview

Hi! WELCOME TO: ANTIQUE FINDS!
We specifically handpick items from estate auctions and antique stores, based on quality, collectibility, uniqueness, and Just A Great Antique that catches our eye. Antiques from glassware, ceramics, pottery, linens, vintage prints, ephemera, books, costume jewelry and kitchenalia. A Little Taste Of Variety Expected Here!

We specialize mainly in antique and vintage framed and unframed prints. We will sell old framed artwork in its original purchased condition. (*Note: as an added service to our buyers, we do clean up the old dirty glass and sometimes replace the cardboard backing, which most times has weathered beyond keeping.)

Other times we locate hard to find artwork illustrations that are stored away in attics, old drawers, scrapbooks, and destroyed old books with their illustrations still intact. We like to think that we recycle and create another treasure which you can enjoy. We frame these up in their appropriate time of original creation. We will not use newer frames, will be the original pieces that get sold in sales.
Rest assured, as you go through our many inventory of items, you will see how lovely these artwork pieces are. Great treasures to enjoy another century and past down to the next generation.

Shipping policy

HANDLING PROCEDURES AND CHARGES
The shipping charge listed in our description of our item has an included handling cost. This charge is for the actual processing of your purchased item(s), the sale price of any item does not include the physical time to run around and obtain the volume of boxes we use, to process paperwork, wrap and box and sometimes make special boxes, transport to the carrier, stand in lines, etc., etc. Therefore, just as any establishment that performs shipping, we need to charge for our service which is not covered by the actual sale price of the item. This should not create a problem.
When we package your merchandise, we realize we could slap it in a box, ship it off and let the insurance take care of any damages if it gets broken. Our concern is not just to simply get paid, but to help make sure your often irreplaceable item gets to you in one piece. We will admit, we often overkill with our packaging, but we haven’t any intentions of seeing the merchandise broken if we can prevent it.

SHIPPING PROCEDURES, CHARGES AND DELIVERY CONFIRMATION
Our shipping price stated on the set shipping cost pertains ONLY for the 48 contiguous United States of America. All others will be quoted upon request or after the placed order. We retain the choice to select the method of shipping. We can combine shipping charges on multiple orders to hopefully create a savings to the buyer. However, quite often due to packaging regulations petaining to box sizes, it costs almost as much for handling in some cases. We assure you we will be more than fair!
Carrier Charge-There is the carriers basic charge; then possibly a charge depending if it is a business or residential delivery: another charge if the package is Oversize 1 and still another if it is Oversize 2; then possibly a gasoline surchage added for rural delivery. These are mostly items shipped with U.P.S. or FedEx.

Packaging Materials are part of the shipping charge. Sometimes the buyer overlooks that some packaging materials are out of pocket expenses for the seller. Our biggest expense is bubble wrap, peanuts and construction adhesive on boxes. Then there is small, large, and bubble envelopes, tape, tissue or heavy paper which may seem incidental, but it all adds up. On occasion we need to buy a box which may cost $4.50 to $6.50 on specific larger items. Most boxes are obtained without an expense to the buyer.
The only way to track a package by the U.S. Postal service (without paying for the higher costs methods of shipping), is by Delivery Confirmation. We will pay for this extra charge out of our pocket. We need to know where your package is. The exception of card mail, as it is not available unless it is in a thicker padded envelope, which is also an added expense to the buyer.

Return policy

None: All purchases final

ITEMS SOLD AS DESCRIBED WITH NO RETURNS
Most of our items are antiques, unless otherwise indicated by the used of a date or the words vintage or collectible in the description. Many antiques acquired character due to wear and tear on the item. In some cases, the more extreme the wear, the more character. We try our very best to describe everything to the best of our ability. We are (usually) thorough and accurate in describing our merchandise as one could.

ANY QUESTIONS BEFORE ORDERING???!!!!
We expect you to ask any unanswered questions before you buy. We believe we supply enough information for you to make a qualified decision to purchase any item from us. As long as our descriptions are accurate, we will not allow any item to be returned and a refund will not be allowed. We haven’t any problem refunding money if we misrepresented any item. So once again, PLEASE ASK ANY QUESTIONS WHICH MIGHT BE IMPORTANT TO YOU BEFORE BUYING.
***As in the spirit of any estate auction, items are sold as final sales. We buy from auctions and antique stores.
