"They who die with the most toys win"
Welcome too my website,
My name is Gary Hogan and I am a third generation antiquarian and collector. I hope you find something of interest here. Since you really cannot judge a book by it cover, I thought I would take this opportunity to introduce myself and my methods of doing business.
If you are selling something at a set price, whether it is on a stall at a fair, or on Ebay, I will assume that you have done your research and if I think I can make a profit, I will pay what you ask.
I am not adverse to making an obscene profit on an item, if you have not done your research properly. Simply put, if you have set a price, do not come moaning to me afterwards if you see me selling it for much more here or on Ebay. You Should Read More 2 !
On the other hand, if you ask me to value something, I will honestly tell you what I think I could sell it for and offer you 30% under that price, if you wish to sell to me.
This will probably still be more than other dealers will offer you. This because I serve a list of discerning clients and I take personal pride in helping them build their collections.
If you want me to sell something for you, I usually charge 15% of what is left after costs, which usually include Auction and Paypal fees.
I describe what I am selling to the best of my ability and I am quite willing to elaborate on that description and supply further pictures if requested. If for whatever reason you are not happy with the item when you receive it, please let me know and we will sort something out.
My preferred method, is for you to return the item for a full refund. This is not some customer care ploy. If you are not happy, you will not give the item the care and attention it deserves and in that case I would rather have it back, so I can eventually find someone who will.
No automation here, all done by personal email. Please contact me using the” Contact Form”. Make sure you tell me what item you are interested in and where you are in the world. I prefer to use Paypal, so I will reserve the item you requested and send you a Paypal invoice, which will include postage (which is at cost). After you pay, I will post you the item. If you would also like to tell me about your collection, the weather or even your cat, please feel free, I enjoy a good conversation.
