How is my order packaged?
Unlike certain large online stores with massive warehouses which seem to enjoy tossing your nice book or card deck loosely in a box or padded mailer, we take special care when packaging your items during shipment.  We never use padded mailers to ship card decks and try to limit movement of your item during transit.  In addition, if an item has major dings or dents worse than regular shelf wear, we clearly label them and provide individual pictures for that one item (and normally sold with a special discount) so you won't have damaged gifts for yourself or friends.  We've seen this with many stores who simply "don't care" enough.

Using Paypal as your payment method?
Orders paid with Paypal will only be shipped to the Paypal address in the transaction.  Please change your delivery address in Paypal prior to finalizing payment if you need to ship your order to a friend or an address not in your Paypal account.

Are the items you sell new?
Yes, all items shown are new and unused.  Some items are shrink wrapped from the manufacturer, but not all.

How can I track my package?
We will send you a tracking number automatically once your package has shipped.  You can also enter your tracking number at the US Postal Service website here.  Please allow 24-48 hours for any tracking information to show up as there is normally a delay in their systems.

Why has my package not arrived yet?
The US Postal Service has recently (starting in Jan. 2015) closed a number of distribution centers though-out the United States to cut costs.  This has resulted in a slower delivery time for 1st class parcels (I've seen 1st class parcels take up to 2 weeks).  That said, if your order is over 1 lb and shipped to a USA destination, it will ship via Priority Mail and should take about 2-3 days.


Do I have to pay sales tax?
We are required to collect sales tax of 7.75% for orders shipped within CA (California).

What countries outside of the US do you also ship to?
We ship to the following International countries:
Australia Latvia
Belgium Lithuania
Canada Malaysia
Croatia Malta
Estonia Netherlands
Finland New Zealand
Germany Singapore
Great Britain and Northern Ireland Spain
Hungary Switzerland

Please note that shipping prices were increased a very large amount by the US Postal Service on Jan 17th, 2016.  This has made shipping to nearly all International locations very expensive.  There are general weight limits where the shipping jumps up a huge amount so if you can keep packages under 8 oz (0.22 kg), 2 lbs (0.9 kg), 3 lbs (1.36kg) or 4 lbs (1.81kg), then that would be the most economical shipping option.  Feel free to contact us if you want us to try to get a mix of different items under a certain weight for you.


Are there any taxes, fees or duties if I make purchase?
For International buyers, please note that you (the buyer) is responsible for any customs, fees, duties and taxes that may be charged by your Country from your purchase.  Prior to purchase, please contact your customs office in your own country to determine the fee amount that would be incurred.  As each foreign country has their own laws, we do not know the amount each specific country may charge.
