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

Fine and decorative art, books, and collectibles can be found here: an array eclectic and wide enough accommodate the diverse interests of seasoned and occasional buyers alike.

Grounded in the middle market for collectibles and in the secondary art market, we offer unusual and highly desirable items. We haven’t neglected the gift giver either, so if you are looking for a special gift, you’ll likely find it.

So called " higher end" offerings can be found at our flagship gallery at :

Our book offerings are high quality material- no book club editions or ex-library books. No license is taken with item descriptions; we do our best to be accurate.

Orders are combined and we go out of our way to keep shipping costs in line with the actual costs. If you did overpay somehow, you’ll be refunded the difference.

Generally we will sell to international buyers and try to give them, because of the disparity of shipping costs, some parity by reducing the item’s price. No handling charges are assessed on any shipment.

In the immortal words of Joan Rivers: “Can we talk” Please contact me first if you are not pleased, or if there is a problem of ANY sort; you will get an answer. Don’t be deterred from making a purchase because of rare negatives or neutral feedbacks. Some, to my chagrin were from competitors (not to mention my ex-wife) and therefore deliberately misleading.

Please don’t look to me to assume responsibility in the event of loss or damage of uninsured items. I recommend that the buyer purchase insurance for high value items. I have no set policy since every case is different but I guarantee satisfaction. Refunds for delivery or condition problems that may arise must be requested by email within 5 days of receipt of the item.

If you are temporarily short of funds (as most of us are often enough) I’ll hold an item for you; just send me a message.

I will not charge for books destined to active US service personnel. Pay only for the actual shipping. And, if you are dealing with a challenge such as an illness or emotional transition, talk to me. Maybe I can brighten your life a little.

Shipping policy

Books will be shipped via MEDIA MAIL unless another service is requested and paid for. I do not normally insure items unless requested and that charge is additional on items under a hundred dollars. In the rare event of damage in transit on uninsured items, a fair and equitable way of handling it seems to be to share the loss since . It is unfair to ask you to bear the full burden, and equally unfair to expect me to since the damage could have caused anywhere between my door and yours. I will absorb half the loss, and you the remaining half of the cost including the shipping. Please do not ask me to bear the full responsibility for causes over which I have no control.

Return policy

Returns are not a problem as long as they are requested soon after the receipt of an item.

Miscellaneous details

We are located in Southern Wisconsin; as an alternative to shipping we often deliver or allow you to pick up.

I will not charge US servicemen on active duty, or military personnel in Military hospitals. Please contact me.
