Details About These Tuesday Items
Why do these bulk lots close on Tuesday rather than Sunday like they normally always do?
This is because the Tuesday they close is New Year's Day, and it makes more sense for bulk lots to close than a different type of auction,
because bulk lots mostly sell to dealers, and dealers can take the time to review these auctions ahead of time and bulk lots rarely get much "last
minute" bidding, so it doesn't matter that they close on New Year's Day (and besides, lots of collectors get really bored watching endless
football games, and enjoy getting to watch some bulk lot auctions close!).
About the shipping of the bulk lots in this set of auctions
In the past, we have completely packed all of the bulk lots, which meant that you couldn't easily combine any of them, especially the ones that
included a lot of items. But now we are only slightly packing them, so that once the auction is over, WE WILL BE ABLE TO COMBINE BULK LOTS INTO
SINGLE TUBES OR BOXES
(as much as is safely "combine-able")!
This will make these great deals even better, because you may buy say, 10 flat bulk lots, and we might well be able to send them all in a
single box (and if not, it will certainly be fewer than 10 separate packages). So be sure to look over all of these bulk lots carefully, because
there will surely be many excellent deals!
About the condition of the items
Note that we give a detailed overall condition grade to every item we sell ("fine", "very good to fine", "very good", "good to very good", and
"good", with only a few graded "fair" or lesser) along with more details about the condition described in words (but pretty much a general
description of the defects, and we only describe specific defects if they are the type that CAN'T be seen in our super-sized images, or if
the item is especially valuable). We felt this would help bidders identify items they want to bid on more easily. Of course, we still strongly
recommend that you look at our super-sized image to see the extent of the defects that we describe and to examine the poster for minor defects
that we did NOT describe. Of course, with the items that have many pages, we could not photograph every single page, but we often
photograph both covers and an interior two-page spread, which should surely give you an excellent idea of the overall condition of that item.
U.S. Shipping Details
U.S. buyers need to enclose the actual cost of shipping (or in the case of a few items as specified on the individual auction pages, $8, $12,
and actual cost of shipping), which includes full insurance! NOTE: Where available, our flat rate shipping is good for three weeks. If you haven't paid
within three weeks after your oldest unshipped purchase, you will then be quoted the actual cost of shipping
when you request it.

Missouri customers: You must pay an additional 7.162% sales tax on your purchases. If your order
is sent within the state of Missouri, we MUST collect this tax (if it is shipped to another state, we do not collect the tax).
Do you need "signature required"?
UPS nor USPS automatically require a signature to deliver packages, so if you want the
signature to be required, you will need to pay the extra $4.25 for UPS or $2.45 for USPS that
they charge for "signature required", and please realize that they will then NOT leave
the package at the door, and you may well have to go to the UPS or USPS facility yourself to
pick it up if you aren't there to meet the delivery person. If you have any other special requirements, please tell us when you are paying for
your order. IF YOU DO NOT SPECIFY THAT YOU WANT SIGNATURE REQUIRED, THEN YOUR PACKAGE WILL BE
SENT WITHOUT SIGNATURE REQUIRED (unless your package has a dollar value over $300, in which case we will ALWAYS send it
with signature required, due to the massive rise in "porch thefts", unless you specifically tell us not to, and you will need to fully accept responsibility for the package if it is stolen from your porch or
You CAN usually combine shipment!
NOTE: These Tuesday items need to be sent in different types of packages so...
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT COMBINING: Flat rate shipping is good for 3 weeks worth of purchases (assuming all the items fit into a single

span of more than 21 days, you will then be charged the actual cost of shipping plus $3 for packing materials.
*items marked as "flat" shipping might be able to be combined with these items (but know that if they can't
be combined into a single package, then we will ship them in separate packages for the actual cost of shipping):

Tuesday December 4th window cards, French & Italian
Sunday December 16th flat package items in December Part IV

Note that we not only allow you to combine as many items as you want from a single set of Tuesday, Thursday, and/or Sunday auctions, and still
pay only a single shipping charge for all of the items (even if you get 100 or more, but solely from a single set!), but we also allow you to
wait until the next three weeks of auctions end (a total of up to nine sets of auctions) so that you can combine your current purchases with those
of our following auctions (if possible; see
Learn More About Combining), and that means there is a
chance you could combine items from up to nine of our sets of auctions, and still pay only a single shipping charge (assuming those items fit into
the same type of package, but of course, there is a limit to how many items can fit in a single package or tube, and if you end up with several
packages, you will need to pay that many shipping charges;
Learn More About Combining). Since around half of our
auctions have items that ship in tubes and the other half have items that ship in flat packages, and since few of those items can be combined,
most of our regular buyers end up with at least two packages after three weeks. We
KNOW there are other sellers who charge a little less on shipping than we do (and of course, there are others who charge far more!), but
none of the ones with lower rates offer the same generous flat rate shipping we do, and we know that our packaging is the best there is, and our
orders virtually never arrive damaged (and on the very rare times that they do, all our U.S. packages are fully insured, and FULL INSURANCE IS
INCLUDED IN THE U.S. SHIPPING CHARGE).
DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE ACTUAL COST OF U.S. SHIPPING (plus $3 for
heavy duty packing materials; unless otherwise specified)!
Non-U.S. Shipping Details
Non-U.S. buyers must pay the actual cost of shipping their order (you can choose whatever method you prefer, but know that the U.S. Post
Office has eliminated Surface Mail, so we can only send via Express or Airmail), plus $3, for both the best packaging materials you have ever seen
and a separate printed invoice mailed to you. All non-U.S. buyers must tell us if they want the package sent insured or uninsured at the time they
pay for their order.
Have you heard about our Pay and Hold Program?
This lets non-U.S. buyers pay for their purchases from 6 consecutive weeks (a total of 18 auctions and up to 15,000+ items!), and we then send all
your purchases at once saving you
LOTS of money! Click
HERE to learn more (if you are not one of the hundreds of our non-U.S. buyers who are already part of this program).

Normally we provide
a chart containing estimated shipping charges for up to 3 items from a set of auctions, but since we are offering many, many different types of
bulk lots that ship in different types of packages or tubes AND given the wildly different weights of the lots we are offering, we are unable to
provide estimated shipping amounts for this set of auctions. Know that lots containing less than 20 items each will cost roughly between $50 and
$75 to ship depending on what country you live in and what shipping method you choose. Lots containing more than 20 items (or lots containing
HEAVY items) will ship for FAR higher amounts.
PLEASE DO NOT BID ON THESE BULK LOT AUCTIONS EXPECTING THE COST OF SHIPPING TO BE LOW! Some large lots
could easily cost over $120 to ship. Bear this added expense in mind BEFORE you place a bid, and include a guessed at "shipping amount" in the
amount you bid, so that you are paying the total you want (if you think shipping will be $70, and you want to pay $80 for the lot, then you can
only bid $10).
ALSO NOTE: Insurance will increase the cost of shipping by approximately $1.60 for each $100 of insurance.
Here is a chart
containing estimated shipping charges for up to 3 rolled oversized items from the first part of this set of auctions
ALSO NOTE: Some items can cost MUCH MUCH more than the estimates
shown below due to the large size tubes they require for shipment and their heavy weight!
NOTE: These are ESTIMATES only, and your actual shipping may be more or less than
ALSO NOTE: Insurance will increase the cost of shipping by approximately $1.60 for each
$100 of insurance.
We charge the "actual" cost of shipping this week (plus $3 for
packaging materials) to all buyers (U.S. and non-U.S.), because we are
selling items of 100 different sizes, and our shipping estimate charts
below for non-U.S. buyers are only of limited use, due to the wide
variance of the size of the packages, so if knowing the actual shipping
cost is important to you before you bid, please
contact us with the item or items, along with where you live.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please bear the above in mind
BEFORE you place a bid (if you live outside the U.S.). The vast majority of our customers want a very securely packed tube, and will pay the
extra shipping cost involved (and of course, it goes to the Post Office or UPS, and not us!). Please do not ask us to pack less securely, as that
would likely result in a damaged order.
Some sellers are sending by Ground UPS to Canada, but that incurs large "brokerage fees", so we do not
recommend it. Note that there are also some sellers sending non-U.S. packages via a "Letter" rate, but of course this is not legal, and we can not
do this. We have outlined the possibilities for sending non-U.S. packages above, so please read that carefully, BEFORE placing a bid!
