Discounted Items

This is a new page and is dedicated to items that are being discounted. Sometimes we are motivated to sell items at or near wholesale just to move them. The prices will typically remain until all items of a particular type are sold.

Other examples are when some items are second quality, not meeting our standards for first quality, and these will be labeled as such.

New change 5/1/2005

Our motivation is to get rid of these and make room in our offices. Once quantities are low on an item, or in certain instances, the price will be reduced periodically until sold. You can wait for the price you are comfortable with...keep checking back.

Before ordering, feel free to e-mail or call to discuss any questions you might have about any 2nd quality items. We understand nobody wants to order certain items sight unseen.
 

Shipping

 We normally ship by the postal system using Priority Mail. In instances where an item is bulky and a distance away from us, UPS may be less. In those instances we will advise you. To calculate shipping, look at the weight next to an object and go to the United States Post Office website (click on logo below) to calculate shipping with our zip code of 48350.

Ordering

 For most items, just press the button near the item. To order two different items, just submit two orders - we'll see both and ship together.

For more quantities of more than 1, or for colors and other special attention, please write in the "comments" area of the form.

This is a Small business. Therefore we do everything by hand. That means the computer does NOT charge your credit card when you send an order. We do it all manually when we ship.

Also, there is no server out on the internet where your credit card is stored for hackers to get into. We merely receive a secure e-mail onto our home computer when you order.

 

Pricing

All prices shown are for one item, unless otherwise stated..
