Terms of Sale

Irolita Books

30 day return guarantee, with full refund including original shipping costs for up to 30 days after delivery if an item arrives misdescribed or damaged.

Shipping every weekday via USPS Media Mail, from Niagara Falls, New York, or via Canada Post to Canadian customers.

I package carefully. Hardcovers and larger paperbacks are polybagged and boxed in double layer fitted cardboard. Very small paperbacks are polybagged and sent in padded mailers of appropriate size.

I try very hard to provide highly protective packaging for all items. However, customers are welcome to request additional layers of protection for collectible and/or fragile items.

Free bookmark included.
