TERMS OF SALE
Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our Policies below. With your purchase you agree to the terms of our buying agreement. We welcome any questions or comments so feel free to email us at any time with your concerns. email me
When you purchase a single item from A Gathering Place your shipping charges will be added to your Cart. In the event you purchase more than ONE ITEM, actual shipping will be calculated once your merchandise is weighed and boxed. Any combined shipping overage charges will be promptly refunded to your account at that time. Please understand that many of our offerings are one-of-a-kind items. Our inventory is NOT automated which requires us to manually remove a item from stock once it has been purchased. We will change merchandise to SOLD status as quickly as possible! However, in the event you purchase something that has been previously sold, we will notify you by email and promptly issue a full refund. Buyers who are first to pay (Pay Pal) are considered the first buyer. Thank you in advance for your patience as we continually strive to update our system.
Anything we deem fragile (glass, etc.) will automatically have insurance included in the Shipping Charges. This will be indicated in the item description. If you desire your purchase to be INSURED, please contact us after your purchase is made so we may invoice you accordingly. We are not responsible for lost or misdirected or damaged shipments once they leave our facility.
All major Credit Cards are accepted via Pay Pal (no E-Checks, please), our only form of payment. The following link is provided in case you are not familiar with this secure service www.paypal.com. Due to the time restraints associated with Snail Mail, presently we do not accept personal or business Checks and/or Money Orders for payment. If you need to use another form of payment, please email me as we may be able to work something out with you. When you click on the Add-to-Cart button it will take you to the Pay Pal site where you can pay with most Major Credit Cards. It is not necessary to have a Pay Pal Account to complete your payment.
We will strive to find the most economical way to ship your purchase. Due to the recent changes in size and weight restrictions at USPS, combining some items may not be possible for added savings. It is not our intent to profit on shipping; however we will always seek the best Carrier for your purchase. In most cases your purchase will be shipped within 72 hours by Priority Mail, UPS or FedEx Ground, again with optional insurance. We do not ship on weekends or Holidays. If you have a special need or requirement, please contact us prior to making a purchase.
We combine shipping whenever possible to save you money! Any Shipping, Handling or Insurance charges shown apply to the Continental US ONLY (Alaska and Hawaii are higher). We are happy to ship overseas! Please email me FIRST for a shipping quote!
We try and describe all of our offerings accurately and include any noticeable flaws or imperfections in the description. Many of our vintage finds are one-of-a-kind items, so please expect some gentle imperfections. Please take note that all Sales are Final and no refunds will be made.
If your purchase arrives damaged from the Shipper, please contact us within 48 hours. Be sure to keep all original packaging materials including the box.
Presently, we do not offer Layaway service.
