Hi! We're Jen and Stephanie and we run Avaneshop.com!
Our name Avane, pronounced Av-an-nay, is Gaelic for lovely Wares. We used to have a special emphasis on animation artwork but, now we sell all manner of collectible! We Specialize in rare and vintage toys, anime, comics, video game goods, 80s character goods, 90s character goods & other collectibles. Our most popular categories are Sailor Moon, Mario Brothers, and Pokemon, but we sell everything from Disney to Power Rangers, to Garfield, to Dragon Ball Z. We might just have the little piece of nostalgia you've been missing!
We're collectors before we're sellers so often the items we sell were once part of our personal collection and when they're not we do our best to research. Being that we are collectors, we know how we like to be treated when we're purchasing the next piece to complete our set so we always strive to give accurate descriptions and pack carefully. All that being said we are just people so sometimes our normal life gets in the way of our selling. We are an officially licensed business in the state of Minnesota, but Avane isn't our only job or responsibility so sometimes questions might take awhile to get answered or shipping may be slower than predicted or any number of unforeseen events. But, we always try to make it right in the end.
Most of the items we sell are vintage collectibles 10, 20, 30 years old or more! so please expect some wear and discoloration. We will always try to note when significant defects are present or make note if something has survived in mint shape, but we want to make sure you're doubly aware. We're always happy to take additional pictures as well so just ask if you want to see another angle or a specific aspect more clearly. Thanks so much for shopping at our store so you can help us add to our collections and add to your own in the process!
