Lending Library

Regular price $30 Sale

Description

The items below here will almost all be USED, but everything is still USEFUL!  There may also be Factory 2nds that are new but for the stated reason did not pass final Quality Control.

The idea is to let people try one of these items for a week or two, just to check out our stuff or maybe because it's needed for an upcoming trip. But it's all available for purchase, too.

[An unanticipated -- but terrific -- use of the Lending is described in the Blog of 2023-09-09: ........ About two months ago we were contacted by a gent who is undertaking a fundraising adventure on behalf of Australia's Riding for the Disabled Association. Tom Mullinar, his wife, Sascha Yeomans, and Sascha's son, Angel Cropley, intend to complete, on horseback, Australia's National Trail. Australian TV created a video, linked from the family's @roughandstumble Instagram account, describing their plan. The National Trail is 5330 km (3313 miles) long. Nature will present a great many obstacles! This will definitely be the biggest adventure for anything from the Lending Library, and probably the longest single outing ever undertaken in WeatherWool!]

The website will charge $30 to cover shipping, and we'll include a pre-paid return shipping label with the garment.

If you decide to buy the item, the cost is the price as shown. It's not necessary to pay a deposit on the garment.  Please either buy it or return it after a week or two.

The Library has become more popular than we expected.  If there are already two names next to an item (meaning someone has it and another person is waiting), please don't place an order.  Thanks.

Also, if you have a garment that might be useful for us to add to the lending collection, please contact Alex (Alex@WeatherWool.com / 862-849-8250). You can see how we handle trade-ins in the intro to our SPECIALS.

If you would like one of these items, please telephone us or place an online order with a NOTE telling us exactly which item you want. Please put your note in the box labeled "Add a note to your order". (Sometimes the NOTE does not reach us and in these cases we will contact you.)

Because of potential import duties, taxes and higher shipping costs, the Lending Library as described above is not really applicable outside the USA. But we can usually improvise suitable arrangements on a case-by-case basis for our friends without an American shipping address.

The listing for a garment that is "checked out", will show the order number and date it was sent, plus the first name and last initial of the person who has it. When a garment is returned that information is removed and it becomes available again.

A lot of the garments shown below are listed as New-Used (maybe a result of our Customer Service policies). Usually New-Used means the customer who made the original purchase held the garment for longer than 10 days or so. If a customer hangs onto a garment more than about 10 days before returning, even if it just sits unopened in the box, we count it as Used. Also, sometimes people tell us they returned it after only one day and only wore it to go shopping and to walk the dog one night. If a garment has been taken outdoors, no matter for how short a time, we will not sell it as new, and it will be listed on the Lending Library as New-Used.  If someone returns a garment immediately, but it has been soiled somehow, it counts as used.

We try to ship Lending pieces in presentable condition, but we don't spend time on them like we do with new.  If we did, we'd have to charge more and the lending would have a different sort of philosophy than now.  Similarly, we can't accept requests to notify someone if a particular item becomes available.

If you place an order for an item already "checked out", we'll usually let your order sit and mostly such orders will expire unpaid.  But we'll note that you are NEXT and if the item becomes available, we'll get in touch.

Lending items may be shipped in a recycled box, which seems appropriate.

One other thing ... Ralph often ships Lending pieces, but he's terrible at packing. Please don't hold it against him (me!!).

THANKS -- Ralph --- 973-943-3110 and Alex --- 862-849-8250
