HAND MADE INDUSTRIAL METAL STORAGE BOX
(full item description/condition info can be found below story)

Jack and Misty Slater couldn't get enough of shabby industrial stuff. Their urban Chicago loft was filled with rusty pieces of metal and industrial age office furniture repurposed for everyday living. Jack had always liked the look of cold steel but Misty surprised herself that she too loved the look as well, the rustier the better. It was a far cry from the Country Blue and oak furniture she grew up with in her suburban home. Whenever her mom came to visit them, she was concerned that the young couple was having a tough time financially and assumed they had resorted to dumpster diving to find furniture for their place. She even offered to take them to Ethan Allen's to buy them a couple of nice pieces of furniture.

ITEM DESCRIPTION:
This unique old metal utility box caught our eye because it was a home-made upcycle piece made probably 40-50 years ago. It is an electrical junction/switch box that someone has turned into a toolbox or storage box by adding a plastic handle--very clever. It measures 9" X 8.5" X 6" tall (add1.5" for the handle) and made out of heavy gauge steel with a gray finish. It has hinges on one side with a push button latch on the other side. The plastic handle is white and is mounted securely with a metal plate on the inside of the lid. Inside the lid you'll find the printed instructions for operating the breaker/switch.

CONDITION:
This old metal box has a nicely distressed finish with worn paint, scratches and rust but no dents and is structurally sound. The plastic handle has a chunk missing from one side but that may have been missing when it was added to this upcycled piece. Besides some rust, the interior is pretty clean with no grease or dirt build up. The latch works and the lid shuts securely.

Payments

You may pay for your item by Debit/Credit Card or by PayPal. We also accept money order payments but your item will not ship until money order clears our bank. Idaho residents will be charged 6% sales tax.

Shipping from United States

I don't know about you but when I order something online, I like to get it get it fast, so It is our policy to ship items as fast as possible. Most items ship within 1-2 business days of a paid order. Items usually ship via USPS or FEDEX Ground. Lighter items usually ship via USPS Priority Mail while heavier items may ship via FEDEX Ground or USPS Parcel Select. If your shipping address is different than your mailing address, please provide us with both so we use the correct one depending upon the carrier.

We take great care in packing items but on rare occasions an item can be damaged in shipping. All items shipped within the USA are automatically insured against damage. If your item arrives damaged contact us within 5 days from the delivery date so we can process a claim/refund.

We are not responsible for items delivered to your home or business that are lost or stolen after delivery has been confirmed. If you would like us to require a signature upon delivery, please let us know prior to ordering and we will add that option for a nominal cost.

COMBINED SHIPPING DISCOUNTS-
We offer combined shipping discounts on most items (see shipping costs on each item). Please note that Etsy handles combined discounts this way: You pay full listed shipping cost on the item with the most expensive shipping cost and then the combined shipping discount applies to additional items (of lesser shipping costs) on your order.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING-
We are happy to ship internationally on most items but realize that heavy and/or bulky items will be very expensive to ship so we may note on an item that international shipping is not available.The most cost-effective means for shipping internationally is by U.S. Postal Service (either First Class or Priority International mail) but tracking is often unavailable for items sent this way. International delivery times vary from country to country. An item may take anywhere from 7 to 30 days and occasionally longer and depends upon customs or local delivery delays. We have shipped many items all over the globe with very few problems, but items can get lost or stolen along the way. Should an item be lost in the mail, we will provide you with a copy of the U.S Customs form which is proof that we sent the item. The international buyer will be responsible for contacting their own country's customs/mail officials to trace a lost item's whereabouts. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE DELIVERY OF ITEMS SHIPPED OUTSIDE THE U.S.A.

Also note that the international buyer is responsible for any duty or customs fees charged by your country.

Refunds

At the Leaping Lemming, We like happy customers! Upon receipt of your purchased item, check for any shipping damage and Convo or email us ASAP if there is shipping damage or other issues.

We accept returns on items within 14 days of receipt. If you are returning an item for whatever reason, contact us within 14 days to arrange for a return. Once we receive the item back in good condition, a full refund (less original shipping cost) will be issued to you. Buyer is responsible for return shipping charges and original shipping charges unless we deem that an item was not as described. Returned items must be in original condition with all original parts and be packed well for damage-free shipping.

NOTE- We try and describe items as if we were the buyer so carefully read all item descriptions. Most returns can be avoided if you read sizes, descriptions, etc. carefully and Convo us with any questions you might have prior to purchasing.

Additional

The vintage items we sell are over 20 years old (some are much older) and are sold "as is." We do not imply any warranty beyond the 14 day return policy described above. This means that if an item breaks or ceases to function after 14 days of receipt no refund or return option is available.

FURNITURE-
Some large/bulky furniture items may come to you partially disassembled to keep your shipping costs down and we will state that on the item description. The buyer is responsible for correctly reassembling an item. If you have any questions about reassembly or are not certain that you have reassembled properly, please contact us prior to using the item. If you would prefer to have an item sent to you fully assembled--contact us prior to purchasing so that we can provide a shipping cost for a fully assembled piece. Note- some items may not be available for shipping if they are not partially disassembled. Fully assembled pieces are always available for local pick-up.

ELECTRONICS-
We attempt to describe items as best we can but be aware that vintage appliances and electrical devices may have electrical hazards so the buyer is responsible for any risks in use of them.
