Mister Find IT DOES NOT BUY YOUR COLLECTIBLES, WE DO HOST and POST ADS FOR COLLECTORS THAT ARE LOOKING FOR SPECIAL COLLECTIBLES!
“Collectible Wanted Ads” are posted on this site by or in honor of 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, a high end auction house, etc., that specializes in that particular antique or collectible. If we know it's a high end auction house, we will attempt to mention within the add "consignment", this will alert you that additional fees may be required to the auction house. These fees are not covered with your Mister Find IT membership or single contact. Mister Find IT feels these are honest, trustworthy and serious collectors, for the items in which they're listed, and who we would deal with if we had their collectible. To ensure you receive the money and or items being offered, we suggest using an escrow service. An item offered does not obligate that person to purchase your item, (unless you both agree), nor does it guarantee you what amount he or she will pay. All transactions are between buyer and seller and not Mister Find IT . All of the collectible buyers are assigned a buyer number. This number is only used as reference, as contact information is not posted within the initial viewing of the ad. Any person posting an ad is given the choice of what contact information they wish to share with their ad. Sometimes this information is just a name and a link to an email address or phone number. And other times you’ll receive name, address, phone email, web site and /or more. It's important to note, that some of these buyers are high end auction companies, that specialize in a particular collectible. An auction companies consignment fees, buyer premiums, and other fees are not part of your Mister Find IT ® membership/contact fees (if known - these are noted with "will buy or take on consignment" type of statement). The state listed, just tells you what state you may have to ship the item to, if the potential buyer buys your collectible. Buyers and seller's deal directly with each other. This includes prices, shipping, money transfers, warranties, insurance, and any other aspect of the transaction. No collector is obligated to buy any item offered, and no seller is obligated to sell. Members will be able to press the "Find Buyers" button to the right of the ad, and get the buyers contact information instantly (after log in). Emails are forwarded from our system, and thus not always will your attached photos follow your email. Only if the phone number is listed as a "Cell" number should you text, and or send photo's to that number, and then only if you first get permission from the buyer. Your 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. Also see Safety Tips.
