commercial business. I am simply an individual who is selling from my own

to. I am listing most items at a lower starting price than original purchase
price &/or comparable present value. My loss is your gain. Because of my
circumstances, it should be understandable that I cannot accept returns, unless

questionable response. I am an honorable person, and hope that anyone who
chooses to do business with me is the same.
