Layaways and Affirm

Antiques and collectibles are valued based on the rarity and availability of items.  A Dog’s Tale seldom has more than one of any particular item. Once an item sells, it’s difficult to know when a similar item may become available.

For these reasons, if you like and want one or more items, it may be best to purchase them. We understand, however, that the purchase may not be within your budget when you happen to be visiting our shop.

There are two ways A Dog’s Tale can help you.

Layaway using PayPal (applies only to orders totalling  $250 or more and may include as many different items as you wish)

    • You pay 50% at the time of purchase. The remaining 50% is divided into three equal installments over the next three months. You may elect to pay off the remaining amount at any time.
    • A Dog’s Tale issues PayPal invoices for each amount, including the first 50%. These invoices will be sent to you via email.
    • We remove the item(s) from inventory upon your first payment. This stops anyone else from buying it. Once we receive your final payment, we ship the item(s) to you. If, however, you don’t complete the payments, we then re-post the item(s) for sale.
    • To make a layaway purchase, please contact us directly via email at or call   904  608  1017   We simply need the name, SKU’s identifier, and price for each item, plus your email address, a shipping address, and your phone number.

Using Affirm (applies to orders of $50 or greater)

Affirm is a unique credit service that divides your payments into installments. When you use Affirm, we ship the item(s) immediately upon purchase. It costs you the same, and there is no interest.

This credit service is between you and Affirm. If you have an Affirm account you merely use your telephone number to make a purchase. If you select Affirm at checkout and don’t have an Affirm account, the checkout will direct you to set up an account and then complete the purchase.

Payment options through Affirm are subject to eligibility, may not be available in all states, and are provided by these lending partners: CA residents: Loans by Affirm Loan Services, LLC are made or arranged pursuant to a California Finance Lenders Law license.
