OUR POLICIES

PRICING. Our prices are fair and firm. We do not accept offers. We do not have lay-away plans.

PAYMENTS PENDING. Payment is expected within 7 days of our reply to your inquiry. If payment is not received within that time, the item(s) will be available, immediately, to other buyers. We will, however, send one reminder notice. No item will be marked "SOLD" until payment is received.

PROCESSING. Banking and shipping are done once a week at 12Noon on Wednesday, Central Time. If payment is received after that time, the order will be shipped the following Wednesday.

MULTIPLE PURCHASES. We will combine multiple purchases to save on shipping costs.

RETURNS. If we have overlooked a condition problem, incorrectly identified or misrepresented an item, please contact us and let us know where the problem exists. We SCENTSerely want you to be happy with your purchase.

NO RETURNS ON FOREIGN SALES. Please ask questions before you make a purchase. We cannot ship bottles that contain perfume to Canada, France, Germany, Italy, South Africa or the U.K.

Do not open a bottle that has never been opened or use a solid perfume that was previously unused. It will diminish the value of the container and, more importantly, it will not be accepted for return.

WE SPECIALIZE IN SELLING VINTAGE, COLLECTOR, PERFUME BOTTLES - not hard-to-find fragrances. We do not guarantee that the perfume in any container -- opened or unopened -- can be worn.

MAGAZINE ADVERTISING - NO RETURNS
You are buying a page from a vintage magazine -- not the product(s) shown in the ad!
All magazine advertising is original and is sold "as found."
You will receive the entire page regardless of the size of the ad.
Ads that are less than full page will not be cut off the page and sold at a reduced price.
Ads are photographed so that the entire page is displayed.
The pages are either cut out, or lifted out of the magazines.
Pages are not trimmed to minimize edge flaws. If previous trimming is suspected, it will be stated in the description.

NOTE -- REGARDING NEW YORKER MAGAZINE ADS -- Very often the paper will have varying stages of all-over foxing (discoloration due to age) with darker discoloration on the edges. A vertical center crease is not uncommon. Years ago subscribers' copies were folded and inserted into a brown paper sleeve for mailing. Depending on where the ad appeared in the magazine, the crease may or may not be noticeable.
