Select Items Listed Your Satisfaction And Value Gauranteed,
is a 67+ retired Pa. State employee.
Fourty one years married and father to two full grown sons.

On this site there is no 'WE' or 'US'.
None of that 'we will do that', 'contact us', etc.

Here, on, naturespickings, and,
it is ' I ' or ' ME '.    The buck stops with me.

  • I take all the responsibilty.
  • I provide select items,
  • I provide value,
  • I gaurantee satisfaction.

My main site, SILYSAVG.COM, and the two 'sidesites', NaturesPickings and GoodPlansCheap, pretty much cover my interests.

With NaturesPickings I have the venue I need for providing nature items for sale that I gather from forests and fields.
Since I love to forage for wild edible plants and mushrooms and otherwise spend a great deal of time in the woods, you will find many items on NaturesPickings, edible, decorative or craft items, that I pick up during my jaunts.

With GoodPlansCheap I have a venue for selling Do-It-Yourself plans, blueprints, schematics, designs, illustrations, etc., many of which are projects that I would love to build myself, have sold on multiple occasions to satisfied customers or have actually been involved with myself.

With the main site, SILYSAVG.COM, I have a venue for selling items that I find during my many flea market, garage sale, yard sale, thrift shop and estate sale trips that I frequent on a regular basis.
That is one of my several favorite activities.
I love to find items at a low cost, as most of us do. To find them and make a bit of profit is 'icing on the cake'.

After 16+ years on eBay, and other online sale sites, selling thousands of items and gaining the experience, knowledge and outstanding reputation it has become time to strike out a bit on my own.
Building these web sites, on my own, is also a passion. Lots to learn. Keeps the brain active.

Of course, I will still have a presence on eBay and Etsy, in addition my own sites - occasionally.

My reputation can be checked on all those listed. Check them out.

On eBay my username is:    silysavg
On Etsy my shop name is:    NaturesPickings

Shipping items is generally via the United States Postal Service and usually 'Priority Mail', either 'Flat Rate' or 'Regular Priority', whichever is more economical for the customer.
On some occasions, Parcel Post or First Class Mail is used.
Books and magazines will be sent via 'Media Mail' unles requested otherwise.

I do ship internationally.


Please, if contemplating the purchase of two or more item lots from any of my sites, and if the 'Pay' buttons are not set up already to take into account that multiple items are being ordered, let me know by email, beforehand, so that an invoice can be sent with the correct S & H charges.
I am not going through all this website building effort to rip anyone off on shipping charges.

I accept several forms of payment to enable a sale.
No financial information needs to be divulged to make a purchase.

Paypal provides a method of using credit cards without giving me your confidential financial information. You do not need a Paypal account to use your credit credit. Because I have an account there they will process your credit card transaction on my behalf.
I also accept cash, money orders, foreign cash and unused U.S. Postage stamps and U.S. or Canadian 'silver' coin at a 14 to 1 ratio.
