El Paso, TX, U.S.A.
Michael's Books and Collectibles is an Internet only bookstore. I have been in the book business for 16 years. Military History is my macro-specialty and WW2 is my micro-specialty, although you will find a wide assortment of other collectible books as well that I have listed on ABE. Your satisfaction with your purchase from me is guaranteed or your money back. Michael's Books and Collectibles processes credit card payments only thru the ABE site or Paypal. The aforementioned credit card payment methods are the only accepted forms of payment. I will be glad to answer any questions about my books via phone (between 10:00 AM and 9:00 PM Mountain Time) or e-mail. I have had to raise my shipping rates as the US Post Office has raised the rates once more. My rates are based on the Priority Mail rate for a legal size flat rate envelope; standard shipping is 1st class mail which means the package weighs less than 13 ounces. Over 13 ounces must be shipped Priority Mail. If a book will not fit in a large flat rate envelope I will e-mail you with the adjusted shipping cost. Warning, the flat rate envelope is cheap compared to the rates for Priority Mail packages. I know this is trying to say the least, but we must deal with the raising postage costs the best we can.
Returns can be initiated within 30 days of the order's estimated delivery date as per the AbeBooks return policies.
I use the US Post Office only to ship books. I normally ship using the USPS Media rate but will ship Priority Mail or Express Mail at the customer's request and expense. I have found that the ABE default USPS Priority Mail postage settings cost me dearly requiring me to modify them. My Priority Mail charge comes up as $10.35 on ABE but if I can get the book in a $4.95 flat rate small box I will do so and adjust the postage charges down appropriately. I do not use postage as a source of revenue. These same policies apply for international shipping as well, unfortunately the costs are significantly higher for First Class (4 lbs and under)or International Priority Mail; if I find I can get a book to you cheaper than the rate I have posted on ABE I will adjust the charge down. Be assured that your book will be packed quite securely.
