Here at the Institute we use use every square inch of our sprawling estate to house our treasures until they find their "Forever Home". Many of the curiosities we have accumulated over the years are stored in the "ATTIC OF HORRORS" with its aptly named "Shelves of Slight Discomfort"... Some are sent to live in the "Hall Closet of Partially Alarming Clutter" or the "Garage of Unspecific Dread" and some of our long term guests are housed in the newly rented "Corner Office of General Unease". If you think you might want to adopt multiple items, just send me a list of titles or item numbers and I can make special listing for you with them all together. I can't help you after you pay.Is all this glorious exposition too much for you? Does it just make you want to send me a passive-aggressive message to tell me about how you can't be bothered to read any of it? You should probably just move on. It is likely we don't see eye to eye and that rarely works out for either party....
Besides this really was a trap. Depending on the availability, your item may arrive in a double taped new or used cardboard box with; air-bubbles, peanuts, padded mailers & packing paper. I work with whatever I have on hand and that changes daily.
I try to re-use as much packaging product as I can so your package may not be " pretty ". I hope that you can help re-use some of the packing material too. If need be I can get some sheet metal.
Get a PO box or have packages held at your local... Don't be puttin' it on me.
Any item refused, marked return to sender, undeliverable, vacant, etc. Or comes without tracking will be abandoned or ignored unless you make prior arrangements with me.It is easier and protects both of us that way. ALSO there is NO feasible way for me to count each and every one of them. If you are an avid puzzler you already know that counting the pieces is not a guarantee of completeness anyway. Just send me a picture of the "completed" puzzle with the missing piece(s). You alternately may choose to select another puzzle from stock or take a credit for future stock. I cannot enforce this policy but if you choose not to follow it and be one of those kinds of buyers... Keys are not implied to be either valid or invalid on any used games or software. Music, game and other discs may be run on a professional buffer machine and then described as LN. Used & LN HC, TPB, DVD & BluRay games, movies and other digital media may or may not have intact or unexpired digital download codes or coupons.
Some items may be disassembled or partially disassembled to ensure they arrive safely and unbroken. Batteries will not be included. My items come from many and varied sources (it would be an impossibility to tell you the smell pedigree of every item I have for sale) sometimes but not always including; smoking households, homes with weird pets, households with different gods or people that cook gross food. These theoretical smells are subjective. If you have a sensitive sniffer...Don't look at me... Don't bother with less than half. I know that means you aren't serious and no one thinks it's cute when you waste their time. Starting with a lowball offer is not going to get you a better negotiating position with me... It's going to get you a worse one. Is the item already on sale? Well, that is the lowest it is going to go because I'm not here to give stuff away. When you come to my house... Wanting me to split a lot up? I bet you can tell what the answer to that is. Yeah, you're a smart one alright, I knew I liked you. I will never, ever, ever considering doing it, so don't even ask. I can't even believe anyone even has the gall to ask that but they do. It means you were naughty.
I'm not bending my rules for naughty people. (entirely possible) Did I manage to misspell something even with spell checker on? Did I use the wrong picture?
Item details from some other book showing up? Is a fat blobby cat in the picture obscuring something? Let me know, I'm just one, solitary, handsome professor and I list VERRRRY early in the morning. Know more than me about the item? eh, that's also possible.
I'm an expert on many, many things, especially in the comics and toy area (1960s-2010s). There are times where I'll miss something like an armor bit, a backpack, a trailer hitch a broken wing tip or a chipped ear.
For that I beg your patience. It has taken me 25+ years to amass the knowledge that I have but there is still plenty more to learn.
Need your item faster, like overnight? Do you just like asking pertinent questions? If you have a giftee in mind, put their address into your profile and choose it when you checkout.I'm happy to assist you with whatever you need BEFORE checkout. I'm happy and determined to help and make your sale right. I'm only one guy doing all this so every now and then I do make a mistake....
Only problem is, with one handsome and humble professor doing all the work around here, there is no one left to catch the mistake except you. Not quite what you were expecting? Remember you need to save any notes, damaged packaging & the damaged item as well because it may need to be given to the PO as part of a claim. I totally believe you that your item was damaged or not as described, now you can totally believe me that I need to see that picture anyway.
I have online view-able tracking on just about every package so just let me know and both of us can easily look into it. It will dramatically increase the chances of shaking loose any stuck packages within the system. You have 5 days to pay. I'm not going to beg you to pay, so you do your part and I'll do my part...
And you better sell me on your story. I don't know what I'm doing.
Your absolutely pathetic excuse better include werewolf bites, demonic possession or something real interesting for me to read. You accidentally searched for, found, clicked on, bought, checked out AND paid too? This is the name of the thing I have, it is in X condition. , is about as far as I go. I sell niche market collectibles and oddities mostly.
I can't even begin to imagine how you possibly got here if you don't know what my thing is... And if you do not know what my thing is or you are unfamiliar with it... Ask me what it is. If you still don't know after that.. If you are not sure what shelf wear, ding, stress, variant, chipping, oxidation, acid staining, Silver, Bronze, Copper Age, Full Bleed, JLA, JSA, BTVS, LOTR, ST:TNG, VF, GN, HC, PF, PB, TPB, OGN, OAV, MOC, MISB, DCU, MSRP or any of the other hundreds of common pop culture lingo terms mean....
You are over your head and you are going to need some help. Feel free to ask me anything, except the exact measurements of t-shirts.... Try Millionaires T-Shirt Depot instead. I'm your 20+ years experience Nerd Prince expert. If I don't respond, maybe there is a good reason why and maybe there isn't.
Feedback is automatically & randomly generated after you receive your item and are happy. That's it, I don't ask if it is correct.
Long winded and slightly amusing. Devastatingly handsome but not real tall. The Institute is an outlet for overstock and garage/estate sale & thrift store treasure hunt finds.I take it very seriously as this is my full time job. If you didn't like my novella length Wordy McWordwords, well I'm sure with enough time and counselling you'll come to forgive me.
