Mister Find IT DOSE NOT BUY YOUR COLLECTIBLES (except Olivia, MN area) - WE DO HOST and POST ADS FOR COLLECTORS THAT ARE LOOKING FOR SPECIAL COLLECTIBLES!
“Collectible Wanted Ads” are posted on this site by: a.) A person looking for a particular collectible, or line of collectibles is known as a collectible buyer. This collectible buyer may an individual, a company, a museum, a dealer, etc., that specializes in that particular antique or collectible. Some of these collectors will pay for and post a premium ad, while others will post their ad for free in our forum board. b.) Some Free premium ads may be placed by the staff of Mister Find IT. If the ad is placed by our staff, it is placed as a courtesy to the buyer or collector, with no charge to them. Mister Find IT feels these are honest, trustworthy and serious collectors for the items in which they're listed, but in all transactions you have to use your own discretion as to who you work with and trust. However just because a person has an ad posted on Mister Find IT it does not guarantee you or obligate that person will purchase your item, or for what amount. All transactions are between buyer and seller and not Mister Find IT.
Some of the collectible buyers are assigned a buyer number, this number is only used as reference to help us link premium ads, and not used in ads posted in the forums. Any person posting an ad is given the choice of what contact information they wish to share in their ad. Sometimes this information is just a name and email address or phone number. And other times you’ll receive name, address, phone email, web site and /or more. In order to help protect the potential buyers, Mister Find IT’s customers and viewers, from spam, and other unsolicited contact, we require that no contact information appear in the ad. In addition Mister Find IT requires both the poster and those that purchase the contact information to be registered users of this site. In this way the information can be verified, traced and tracked, in case one or the other attempts fraud or other crimes. Or we find reason to delete an ad or block a user from use of our site. Not all information is verified, but it is an option, and does provide some protection to all parties. In addition Mister Find IT does our best to keep all contact information current, even deleting ads of those who have passed away, or stopped collecting. Therefore we charge an advertising fee to the collectible buyers who wish to post premium ads. We also charge a fee for the contact information of ads we post, for serious collectors. This fee is collected thru either a Paypal “ADD TO CART” button, or a “FIND BUYER MEMBERSHIP”. This fee will be the amount assigned to each button, at the time of requesting a buyers contact information.
Using the “ADD TO CART” button: A fee will charged or added to your Paypal cart for each contact you request. Unless otherwise noted we will email the collectible buyers contact information within 24 business hours of clear payment. If the contact information that Mister Find IT sends you is not correct, you will be refunded single contact look up fees, if you contact us within 72 hours of us sending the information, and after verification.
Using the “FIND BUYER BUTTON”: In addition to being a registered user of Mister Find IT, you must purchase a membership (or use Paypal "Add to Cart" button for single purchase of) to access the contact information of the ”ALL posted & approved Collectible Wanted Ads”. This membership is an annual fee, and if started and maintained thru Paypal, this amount will remain the same for you each year; a.) as long as you don’t cancel b.) have a break in your membership; and c.) your membership and user are in good standing. Otherwise, if allowed, you will be charged the current years rate. You will only have access to authorized or posted & approved contact information. Not all categories will have an ad posted. This membership does not give you access or contact of categories where an ad is not yet posted, nor does this exclude you from payment or fees to post an ad. The contact information for these buyers may be by email or even in read only status from our site. Your membership is non transferable, and no portion is refundable once access has been granted.

PRICES & IDENTIFICATION:
Mister Find IT Does not do appraisals. We do have a link to professional online appraisers on our other collectibles page. The appraisal company that does the appraisals, has 30 - 40 appraisers nation wide. Each specializing in different areas. Some of these appraisers have done appraisals for the Antiques Road Show. We have used them, and they do a great job. Sometimes we posts prices or do identification in other areas on our site, forums, sometimes in an email, or an article. Under no circumstances are these prices to be understood as absolute value, or the price you will actually receive or pay for your item. Condition, style, color, location, how an item is sold and many other factors go into the final evaluation of any collectible, including how much a buyer is willing to pay, how much a seller is willing to sell for, when and how the price was established, etc. You hereby agree that these are stated only as a guide, and you hold Mister Find IT, our publishers, our customers and anyone else associated with these prices and this information, harmless of any loss, as a result of consulting or using this site.
