We can only accept payments in U.S. dollars only drawn on U.S. banks or U.S. Post Offices or Western Union or Paypal.  We do not accept credit cards directly, only through Paypal.  We DO NOT accept bank wire transfers.

All payments must be in U. S. Dollars and cleared into our account prior to shipment of merchandise.

Option #1 - Credit Cards on-line through PayPal

We do not take credit cards directly -- only through Paypal.

PayPal is a fast and secure way to pay on-line by credit card.  PayPal has received rave reviews by the Wall Street Journal and is now owned by ebay. 

Paypal allows payment by credit card without requiring a PayPal account.  However, if you would like to go ahead and set up an account with PayPal, copy and paste this link into your browser to access PayPal's website:

Once on the PayPal website, just follow the links for more information and to sign up.  Be sure to follow PayPal's instructions for finalizing activation of your account.

Whether you choose to set up a PayPal account or not, but still wish to use their services for sending payments, please remember that the e-mail address you enter as being your shipping address must match the one on the credit card you use for payment.

We are PayPal Verified


Option #2 - Western Union Money Transfers or Money Orders

Western Union services are available worldwide.  Please check your local area to see if they serve your part of the world.  The U. S. toll free number is 1-800-325-6000.  Any money sent to us by Western Union should be made payable as outlined in Option #3 below.  Once payment by money transfer is made through Western Union, you would need to fax us (972-227-0640) a copy of your Western Union receipt and money transfer control number to enable us to collect the funds.  Once funds are collected, arrangements will begin immediately for shipment of your merchandise and you will be advised of the tracking numbers.

Option #3 - U. S. Postal Money Orders

(We cannot take postal money orders drawn on post offices of other countries.  Thanks for your understanding)

Make money order payable to Sharon Dickinson and mail as follows:

P. O. Box 118

Honest sellers have the same concerns as honest  buyers.  Therefore, for payments sent directly to us, we choose to use a post office box for the sake of our own security.  Please click on About Us to learn how you can receive immediate assurance of our honesty and integrity. 

Option #4 - Personal Checks

Checks generally require 10 to 14 days to clear.  We can only accept payments in U.S. dollars drawn on U.S. banks.  Personal checks are to be made payable and sent as outlined in Option #3 above.

Option #5 - Layaways

Layaways are welcome, and we are willing to work with you on a reasonable time frame and individual basis for paying out your purchase.  Down payments and time frames will vary according to total amount of purchase.  Generally, a minimum of 1/4 to 1/3 of the entire purchase price should be paid up front, with the balance plus shipping paid out over the agreed upon time. 

Because layaway takes the item(s) off the market, layaway payments are nonrefundable.  We encourage you to be sure of your commitment and to pay the balance of your layaway in a timely manner as agreed.  We are glad to do our part to help each and every customer have a comfortable and pleasant buying experience.  We have many happy customers who have used this payment method.

Layaway payments are to be made payable and sent as outlined in Option #3 above.
