Terms of Sale


Availability

All items are sold on a first come first served basis. Anything sold directly through this website is instantly removed from the database, but keep in mind that we do also sell through other online venues, and of course here in the store. On rare occasions the item you want may be unavailable.

Payment

We accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express and Paypal on our secure server.
If you wish to pay with a check (U.S. dollars drawn on a U.S. bank) that is no problem, but funds must clear our bank before we ship your order. Libraries and educational institutions may be invoiced for purchases - please supply a purchase order number.
