All About Me
What everyone should know about me
Hi all! If you are reading this because you are considering bidding on an item, great. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I try to be thorough and accurate in my listings to avoid disappointment. Thanks!
I am not a business, so what I sell is either stuff I have left over from projects, or things we no longer have a use for. As a general rule, I will not sell something that is knowingly broken and I will always do my best to accurately describe an item. If something is missed by me, I will do my best to make it right with the buyer. Like most of the people who purchase stuff I have for sale, I am a hobbiest and know how important the item they are bidding on is to them. I make a point of packing stuff so it arrives as I would want it to arrive to me -- quick and unbroken. I do my best to ship within 24-48 hours of paypal payment and right away after money orders clear at the bank. I try to be flexible in my auctions, so if you have a specific request, please feel free to contact me.
Pretty standard, money orders, cashier's checks or paypal. No personal checks please as the holds by the bank are painfully long and I need the money to pay for my auctions. =)
Mostly through the USPS, but sometimes through UPS or FEDEX. I prefer on most items not to deal with shipping if it requires going by freight since I am not equipped to handle that.
Depends on the circumstances. If there is ever an issue, please contact me prior to taking any action as I would much rather work things out in a pleasant manner. Please remember that like anyone, I can make an honest mistake and will own up to it when I do.
I am located in Howell, Michigan. It is about an hour West of Detroit and about 20 minutes North of Ann Arbor in case you are considering picking an item up.
Feedback as a SELLER
Like most people, I have a policy: As a seller, I try to leave feedback once I have shipped an item. Sometimes my schedule will not allow me to get to it right away, but I will leave positive feedback if payment is made in a timely manner, by the methods described. I will leave negative feedback for people who win an auction and do not contact me with about 9 days. I will send reminders and try to make contact prior to that, but listing items is a good deal of work for me and costs me money. When someone doesn't complete a transaction, it is a major pain and that is why the feedback system exists.
Feedback as a BUYER
As a buyer, I will only leave positive feedback after I have received the merchandise, in the described condition, in a reasonable amount of time AND feedback has been left for me. As a buyer, I pay quickly and by the method requested. If I have completed my end of the deal as directed, I expect positive feedback in return for that action, not for leaving positive feedback. I will always contact a seller prior to taking any action if there is an issue with an auction that I win.
