How to Buy an Item

Send us an e-mail or give us
a call  (full contact information) so we can confirm availability and price with
shipping and answer any
questions you may have.  
Each item has a letter and number code to help identify it, and that's
found in the top of the thumbnail box or at the beginning of the description.

Naturally, you can also get
in touch just to ask a question.

We try to be flexible about
 payment.  If we can put it in
 the bank without raising any
 eyebrows we'll probably take
 it.  Checks and money orders
 are fine, of course.  We also
 take Paypal (and credit card
 purchases have to go that
 route for now).  For
 international sales, Paypal or
 bank transfer is best.
  Monopoly money, anything
 you may have printed in your
 basement, and chickens are
 right out.  Gotta draw the line
somewhere.

Remember that all proceeds
 go to support good causes: my
 spouse, our cats, our creditors,
 my auction addiction, and the
 plumbing project that never
 ends.
