Condition of Items
A large portion of my collection is made up of Japanese brands so you can expect them to be made in Japan and come with Japanese language instructions as I generally import or purchase them directly from Japan. Please understand that some brands produce localized products and may not match a similar model sold in North America.
Some items are brand new (i.e. never inked), while most are gently used. I take pride in how I care for my collection so you can be assured that anything you purchase from this site is in a like-new condition. If there are any outstanding wear, it will be noted in the description so please make sure to read them and reach out if you have specific questions!
I keep all original packaging (where possible) so please review the “Items Included” for the listing to see all the packaging and extras that will be included with the purchase. If no option is provided, then you can expect no packaging at all.
The prices listed on this site are in Canadian dollars. I had considered pricing them in USD but due to the fluctuating rates and Paypal conversion markup, I felt it was best to communicate the actual price that I’d like to receive for the item.
If you are paying in USD, an extra 5% will be added to the final cost to cover transaction & conversion rate fees levied by Paypal.
I accept payments via Paypal.
For Canadian buyers, Interac e-Transfer is a cheaper and preferred option and you will receive a 3% discount off the final total (but you have to cover the sending fee if your bank charges it).
If you are located in Toronto and can pick up the item in person, I also accept cash (with a 3% discount off the final total).
All the prices listed on this website do not include cost of shipping.
The reason is because Canada Post charges ridiculously shipping rates, which is beyond my control. I will only charge what I have to pay at the counter. 90% of sales fall through because of the final total cost so as a general rule, please add the following amounts to the final total in your consideration:
- Canada: starts at CAD$12-15
- USA: starts CAD$20
- International: case-by-case, but it’ll be at least CAD$30 and above.
All shipping will include a tracking number. Once I receive the payment, I will try to mail it out within one business day unless I am out of town (which I will mention to you if that is the case). Canada Post does not operate on weekends so if I receive payment on a Friday, I cannot ship it until Monday.
If you are located in the Kitchener-Waterloo area, you can pickup (and inspect) the items during an arranged time at the Broadwalk. Please note that I do not have my own car so I am unable to accomodate meetings at a different location. Sorry!
