Exceptions to this rule will only be made if you have a consistent history of buying and paying with CT and the Buyer must communicate with CT before 12 noon the day before Pick-Up for an approved alternative method of payment.

    4. WHILE PAYING YOUR INVOICE: Send a 'NOTE TO SELLER', with the time you will be arriving on Pick-Up day to assure we are present and your items are ready when you arrive. This can be done by clicking on the 'Add' button on the bottom of the Payment Screen. Be aware that your bid is a contract to pay for the items you win. You are responsible for honoring it. Email or call if you have questions or difficulty processing your purchase.

It is the Buyer’s responsibility to review the photos, research, and ask questions before bidding. In the case of obvious faults (chips, cracks, significant damage, etc) we do our best to list the fault within the description. Most of the items we sell are used, antique, or vintage. You should expect normal signs of wear consistent with age. We will not list every flaw associated with each item, and flaws are to be expected. ALL SALES ARE FINAL - NO REFUNDS.

Your maximum bid is kept a secret from other users.  The exception to this rule is when your maximum bid is placed on an item with a reserve and your bid is less than the reserve. In that case, your maximum bid amount will be shown. Extra time will be added when bids are placed near the time that the sale begins to close to allow all bidders the same chance to win the item. You will be notified by email confirming your bid amount, when you have been outbid and/or have won.

If you do not pay before the start of Pick-Up then the item(s) will be sold to another buyer. The items must be gone from the premises by the end of that Pick-Up time.
