FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How long will it take my order to be shipped?


Please allow 5-7 business days for your order to ship. Once packages have shipped, delivery times are out of my control. Please check USPS for delivery times on your package.




What is your return policy?


Customer has within 2 days from the time tracking reports package to have arrived, to submit a return claim for damaged or broken items only. In the event of a broken or damaged item, purchaser will be expected to provide a photo of the broken or damaged item with the broken or damaged part clearly showing and will be expected to ship the damaged goods back to me at their expense within 5 days, with the return claim number provided attached unless otherwise stated. Product is expected to be returned in the same condition as it arrived to the customer. Should further damages occur, customer is responsible for the value lost. Digital items are non-refundable. Although I do not expect to have to do so, I do reserve the rights to deny a return claim for legal reasons. Reasons for a denied claim include, but are not limited to, the damage was caused by USPS in shipping and insurance through them is available, imperfection was clearly addressed in listing prior to purchase or high purchase to return ratio with the customer.




Why does shipping cost so much?


Unfortinutely, USPS calculates shipping based on the weight and size of your package. Shipping rates have increased recently as well. Due to these factors, I am constantly striving to provide the lowest possible shipping options.

Absolutely! Your feedback is very important! To submit a special request or suggestion, please fill out the 'contact us' form on the main page. I will respond as quickly as possible to all communications that are recieved!




What do the condition descriptions mean?


As you may have noticed, each item has a condition description listed. These vary from NEW to Well Loved. This scale is desinged to help you know exactly what you are paying for. Here is your code to better understanding those descriptions. New- These items were purchased brand new from supplies that I hand picked. They have not been owned by any other person as of yet and, therefor, in the best conditions that they can be. Like NEW- These items are in great shape! While I didn't aquire them new, they appear there are almost no flaws to the product and do not show signs of wear and tear. Gently Loved- These items are in good condition, however show signs of use. However, these signs are indicitive to what you would expecte from reasonable use. These imperfections include, but are not limited to, creases in the spine of the book, a looser binding (which may have come from the book being opened and laid flat to read), a few folded pages here and there, ect. Loved- These are the items that not only have been loved and already enjoyed, but they exibit additiona flaws. These imperfections include, but are not limited to, torn or bent covers, writing in the book, hightlighting in the book, extreamly loose binding, ect. Very loved- these are books who exibit great wear and tear. These items are the items that may have met the criteria to be added to the store's inventory by an inch.




Where do you get your product?


It is very important to me that I provide you with amazing, fun items at an affordable cost! No guilt here! To ensure that I can do this, I search a number of locations for fun items to share with you. I take donations, I purchase from private, sellings listing their items online, I scour thrift stores and book stores in area. I even have some amazing help in other areas who have volunteered to shop for me to help expand what is available to me, and to all of you! In addition, I have some whole salers of which I am excited to explore and work with to provide you with some new itesm as well!

Want to donate but don't live near me? No worries! contact me and we can discuss available options! Please note that all donations are greatly appreciated! Thank you!




Where do the blurbs in the descriptions come from?


I know that a big part of shopping for books is getting to read blurbs about the book before you order it. That's why, whenever possible, I include the text from the back of the book in the description. This is the most common source of information in the description area. However, when that is not available, I will either find the equvilent online or I will expore the item and write one myself.




Why was a claim or request denied?


For leagal reasons, I reserve the right to deny, refuse or cancel an order or return. While I do not anticipate a high number claims or the need to deny them, there are some circumstance in which claims will be denied. This may occure for a number of reasons including, but not limited to, * Claim is made based on information clearly shared on the website prior to pruchase. * Damage happened during shipping and the package had inssurance. This allows you to make a claim with through the USPS and, with the proper proof (images and a copy of the invoice) they can reemberce you for the damages. * A high order to return ratio. Customers who have a high amount of return claims or a a number of suspicious circumstances will be denied. *Claims not submitted within the two day time frame will automatically be denied. * Claims that do not have the proper or sufficient documentation will be denied * customer does not send back the itme and cover the cost
