I accept Paypal or credit cards upon checkout. Sales tax will be charged for all WA state sales.

I now offer a layaway plan on items $300 and above for your payment convenience. 1/3 non-refundable down at time of purchase with 1/3 due in one month and the final 1/3 due one month later. After full payment your item will be quickly shipped to you to enjoy.

Shipping from United States

I ship promptly, usually within a couple days of payment, excluding weekends and holidays.

US shipping rates quoted are the cost to go coast to coast from WA state. If you live closer, or no matter where you live and you want to purchase multiple items, please feel free to contact me for a custom shipping quote. Rates have gone up and it makes a significant difference in many cases.

If you choose to pay upfront for more than one item without contacting me first, I will ship both items together whenever safely possible and refund you the shipping cost difference.


I strive to describe all items accurately, but if you should experience a problem, please contact me and I will resolve it in the best manner possible. Refunds are only available on my error, and only for 5 days after receiving the item. All electronics are sold with no guarantees as to how long they will work after you own them.
