HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO GET MY ORDER?
That will depend on the delivery time of the carrier and our internal processing time. We try to ship all orders
within 2 working days of arrival. Sometimes this can be a little longer due to waiting for an item to be restocked
from another location. Once your package leaves the building, it generally takes from 3-10 days for
delivery. That makes the total delivery time between a week and two weeks. For International
orders it is far more difficult to determine. In general it can take uo to 3 weeks for a package to be delivery by air and
up to 12 weeks for surface delivery. Faster delivery options are available (UPS Air, Federal Express, D.H.L., etc),
but you must bear any additional costs of shipping, plus an allowance for additional handling costs.
WHAT IF I’M NOT HAPPY WITH MY ORDER?
Any order may be returned for exchange or refund for any reason within seven days of arrival. The item must be
returned in the same condition in which it arrived. If we have made an error in description or shipping we will refund
your shipping costs also. Items returned "Because I didn’t like it!" will be refunded product cost only, not
Shipping & Handling fees. Certain items (clothing that has been worn, toys removed from their packaging,
etc.) cannot be returned.
DO YOU HAVE A PRINTED CATALOG OF ALL YOUR ITEMS AVAILABLE?
Not entirely. With over 10,000 items available and an ever changing inventory, printed catalogs are very difficult
to maintain and go out of date very quickly. This website is our MAIN CATALOG. Persons without access
to a computer can request a limited amount of printouts from the website.
HOW ACCURATE IS YOUR INVENTORY ON YOUR WEBSITE?
99% accurate at any time. Items that have become sold out need to be removed from the website manually.
This can sometimes lag a few days. The same would apply to recent arrivals. New merchandise is often announced in our weekly Newsletter. You can sign up for this free Newsletter in our Guest Book section.
WHAT IF I DON’T SEE WHAT I WANT ON YOUR WEBSITE?
While we try to list every item that we have available on the website, not everything makes it there. If you are
looking for something specific that you cannot find on our website, E-Mail us with your request and we’ll try to "round
one up" for you.
WHY ARE YOUR PRICES SOMETIMES HIGHER THAN INDUSTRY PRICE GUIDES?
It is important to understand that magazines and books containing price listings are average of what dealers across the
world are asking for their items. While these publications are sometimes good at compiling these numbers, they
don’t actually stock or sell these items. WE DO! We are the only company on this planet trying to stock
every item, in print and out of print, related to the categories that we cover. Our costs of maintaining this inventory
and providing selected individual items on demand are immense. Covering these overhead costs requires that
we sometimes charge a little more. In addition, we often have philosophical differences with some of the price
guides. We wish that we could purchase large Star Trek action figures at the prices some guides list them for,
let alone sell them at those prices. The same applies to older trading cards and ceramic collector plates.
Our prices are based on our actual inventory and the availability of the item to us. Regional variations in
availability can make some of our prices appear to be inconsistent with local availability. Also note that there are
items of which we have large quantities in inventory that we are selling for prices well below some price guide
levels. As long as our available inventory allows us to, we will continue to offer these below guide specials.
WHY DOES SHIPPING AND HANDLING COST SO MUCH?
While the actual postage charge on a single item may be relatively low, our cost of processing that order is the same as
for a single $1000.00 item. The order must be opened, the check deposited or credit card processed, entered
in the computer, a label generated, the order pulled and checked, then packed and mailed. The cost of packing
material and postage is often much lower than the total cost of processing your order. Our shipping and handling
charges have been determined through thousands of shipments and are an average for that size order. These S&H fees have not been raised in over 10 years in spite of numerous postage & shipping increases from our delivery companies. We’ve
found this to be the most efficient and fairest way for determining the shipping & handling charges.
CAN I SELL OR TRADE MY COLLECTION TO YOU?
Certainly, but be advised that with our inventory of several million items we often do not "need" many of the
items in your collection. While we do still make cash offers for collections, we prefer to sell your collection for you through our Trading Assistant Program. In this program, authorized by eBay, we will sell your collection on eBay using our expertise in marketing. Payments will be collected, orders processed, and items shipped to the buyers. We do ALL the work and keep a percentage of the net sales as a commision. We have successfully sold collections as small as one item and as large as 26 palletts of merchandise filling a 53 foot trailer. If you are interested in having us market your collection for you send us an e-mail or give us a call.
IF I OWN A STORE, HOW CAN I GET MERCHANDISE LIKE YOURS TO SELL?
We have a wholesale department that offers many of the items on this website to legitimate retailers at discounted
prices. For more information send an E-Mail to
