FAQs

There is a great deal of fake and reproduction material in the marketplace. We do our best to thoroughly research each piece we sell and always fully disclose what we know about any item.  A movie memorabilia collector since 1957 and a dealer since the early 1970’s, Alan Adler wrote the first book on genre movie posters as an art form (The Science-Fiction and Horror Movie Poster Book – Dover, 1977). Before the Museum of Mom and Pop Culture, Alan founded the Archives at 20th Century Fox, running that department for 10 years and curating the first Fox Museum, The Hall of Cool Stuff, in Sydney, Australia.

The Museum of Mom and Pop Culture team doesn’t know everything about entertainment memorabilia, pop culture, art and antiques. No one does. But when you buy from the Museum, we guarantee the material we sell to be authentic, vintage and as described. Bid with Confidence and Enjoy!

Payment is expected within 7 Days. We accept Paypal and money orders. If you desire to pay an alternate way, please make contact.

We are truly a Mom and Pop business. We ship once or twice a week. If it is a birthday or emergency, we can make special arrangements. We love to combine, but if you purchase more than one item, please be patient while we pack and weigh your total. We use USPS and have found that FED-EX offers true savings for over-sized packages both for both domestic and international shipping. Packages over $50 require insurance. In cases where international value limits are above the USPS limits, we engage Fed-EX, and when Fed-Ex limits are reached we obtain 3rd party insurance at very reasonable rates.

We do not undervalue items or mark them as “Gifts”. Insurance for full value is required on items over $50 in value. International buyers must expect to pay fees at their end designated as TAX or IMPORT DUTIES / FEES. If you are concerned about this issue, please contact your local post office for information. It is handled entirely in your country by your postal and customs authorities. In cases where international value limits are above the USPS limits, we engage Fed-EX, and when Fed-Ex limits are reached we obtain 3rd party insurance at very reasonable rates.

Please check at your post office to make sure your parcel is not being held for you without notice being given. Most international packages, if held up, are in customs. We have an excellent relationship with the post office and are ready to head up the search for all missing items. IF SOMETHING DOESN’T LOOK RIGHT, Please Make Contact – Let us know so we can be of assistance.

We constantly check e-mails. If you do not receive a response from us within 24 hours, it is possible we did not get your email.

We often sell materials for other collectors. Our specialty is finding good homes for cherished keepsakes and making friends along the way.
