Payments by check or money order are expected within 10 days and if you give me your email, I will let you know when the payment arrives.
I will always combine items if at all possible to reduce your shipping costs. If you live outside of the 50 states or Canada and interested in something, please email me for your shipping cost.
If your item is not as described, refunds are made as money refunded when I receive it back. If you are returning a purchase, email to let me know and with good communications any problems can be usually worked out.
Additional Paypal Information: If you are new to shopping on ecrater.com, I hope this will help you if you choose to pay through Paypal.
SHIPPING COST: I am a big fan of flat rate shipping packages, so when you check your shipping cost be sure to see if your item will fit into one of those size boxes. Also regional boxes are now available through the p.o. and see if your item fits into one of those categories. If in doubt please email and I will help you find the most economical way to ship your item.
We are also now accepting Google.
ONCE YOU HAVE DECIDED ON AN ITEM YOU WISH TO PURCHASE, CLICK ON BUY. At that point, the next page will have "alternative payment" and once you click on this, you then have the option to pick Paypal Google or m.o. etc.
*Special Note to International Shoppers, I have always shipped outside the U.S. but if you find something of interest at Pieces of the Past, you can do one of 2 things. Email for shipping costs to your destination or purchase and I will send you a Paypal invoice for the items and shipping. If you purchase and find there is no shipping cost, it is not free but you will be billed for it and it must be paid before I mail it to you.
If you find more than one item you are interested in, we will be happy to ship together if it can be done safely.
