RETURN POLICY

We want you to be satisfied with your purchase! All items may be returned for a refund or credit of your purchase price within 7 days from delivery (auctions within 3 days). We strive to give full and accurate descriptions of all items; however, if through our omission or error in descriptions or pictures you are not satisfied, a full refund of the purchase price will be given. If you are dissatisfied for some other reason, a restocking fee of 10% may be deducted to cover associated costs.* A return authorization number must be issued by us prior to the return of an item, and the items must be received by us in the same condition as when they were shipped  out by us (except in the case of damage incurred during shipping). If damage occurred during shipping, contact us BEFORE returning the item, as conditions for the insurance claims vary with different shipping methods.  Instructions for the return of an item will be issued when we are contacted to arrange the return.

Please read the descriptions and review pictures carefully before ordering. We can be reached via e-mail with any questions and will answer in a timely manner. Item descriptions attempt to accurately describe any faults or damage, but all old items may show wear appropriate to age. These are NOT considered faults. We always try to capture any faults in our photographs, so please examine the photographs carefully for anything that might not be mentioned in the description.

*Except in the case of our error, shipping charges are not refundable.


SHIPPING

We maintain inventory in France. Shipping will be provided through the Postal Service or commercial carriers , unless other arrangements are made. Insurance is usually optional except in the case of more expensive items, when it may be required. If damage occurs during shipping, please contact us immediately and do NOT refuse the shipment. We will provide information and assist with filing a claim for reimbursement with the proper insurance authorities. Larger items shipped from Europe may be sent via ocean freight. We do offer storage of our items if a client prefers to wait for a grouped shipment.

We pack our items securely and crate if necessary. Double boxing for fragile items is availabale. We take pride in using recycled materials as much as possible. Please ask if you have special requirements for packaging.

LAYAWAY

We do offer a layaway plan upon request for items over $100. Payment terms are 3 monthly payments with a 1/3 deposit. Payments are due on the first business day of each month and will be considered late after the 5th day of the month. Unless prior arrangements are made, missed or late payments may cause the item to be returned to inventory. Refunds of prior payment amounts will be allowed as in store credits less an amount equal to 10% of the sales price to cover processing fees. Please contact us with any special needs or problems and we will work with you to find a satisfactory solution.

SALES TAX

Sales tax will be collected from buyers in Tennesse and in France, unless you have a wholesale account with us. We don't like it any more than buyers do, but we are obligated by law to collect this amount from buyers.
