Please don't pay 's "pay now" invitation, but wait for an invoice from me. I send them as soon as I can. If you pay 's invoice, it may not reflect any discounts available through online label printing.
Picked up this old Robinson Ransbottom Hey Diddle Diddle cookie jar at a local estate sale...lots of vintage and antique items, but this was the only cookie jar. Faintly marked on the bottom, which hopefully is visible in picture 8. Condition is as shown---two chips on the inside lip, and a glazed over chip on the lid. None can be seen when the lid is in place. There's also some stained crazing, which might be cleaned up with some bleach (I don't mess with cleaning items...high buyer has that honor). A little peppering on his nose almost look like freckles. Condition issues aside, it's a nice piece...no other apologies.Thecolors stayed nice and bright, andall of the nursery rhyme characters are present, right down to the cow jumping over the moon. Measures approximately 9.75" high, 7.75" wide, 8" deep, and weighs more than 4 pounds. Shipped within five business days of receiving payment, which will include delivery confirmation and insurance. I mostly accept Paypal, but please email if you need other options. Please read the fine print below---it will explain how I run my sales---but don't hesitate to email with any questions if I haven't covered them in my 'stuff to read'. Thanks for lookin'!
Please take a minute to read my rants and raves...
Almost all of what I sell is old, so buyers should keep in mind that an item might have some imperfections which are normal and characteristic of old stuff. I try to catch every flaw, but I'm not perfect and can sometimes miss something. I prefer not to take returns, but will always try to work with a high buyer to resolve any issues. Unless I'm selling for someone else, my sales start with a $9.99 opening offer, which merely keeps listing fees down and in NO way means that I'm selling reproduction crap. I'm not a professional, and don't pretend to be, so I welcome "kind" comments with a smile and get rid of the rest. I don't "fluff" a description to cover any flaws, as that's messing with karma, and we all know that karma can get you at any time. I try to be easy to work with and am honest to a fault, so accusations of 'funny stuff' will land you a prime spot on my blocked buyers list. I try to give you the lowest shipping rate available, and shipping is combined whenever possible, but I won't pack cast iron with pottery, so don't even ask! Remember--I have a 5-business day window for shipping, but if I anticipate a delay, I'll let you know. PLEASE WAIT FOR AN INVOICE. Shipping discounts are given when labels are printed online, and I can pass along those discounts only if the high buyer waits for my invoice. The USPS has recently changed its PARCEL POST shipping to PARCEL SELECT, and online labels for Parcel Select only, with any discounts, won't be available until March. International offers are welcome, but anything over 4 pounds costs an arm and a leg to ship, so I'd suggest emailing for shipping charges before you offer. I normally don't refund shipping costs for returned items, but there are exceptions to every rule, and if I find I've screwed up royally, you'll get it all back. I don't buy new packing material (think RECYCLE), but will be happy to buy new supplies for anybody who wants them--just let me know and I'll add the Staples bill to your invoice. I feel I do a good packing job, but have no control over the USPS drop-and-kick method of testing secure packages, so insurance is a gotta-have. And this is so important: IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH ANY PART OF OUR TRANSACTION, PLEASE EMAIL ME SO IT CAN BE RESOLVED BEFORE YOU LEAVE NEGATIVE response!!! To recap: please check the sale descriptions, don't pay till you get an invoice, ask questions and email with concerns. I love communication, check my email daily and do my best to address problems the same day I get them. Whew! Think that's about it.
