How RCH Shoppe Works

Well, you clicked the link to find out how this site works and what it's all about, so, rather than leave you in a state of bewilderment/disappointment/puzzlement/confusion, we'll give you the lowdown.

Regina Cœli House Shoppe is a sort of exchange site created for the Priories and Chapels of the Society of Saint Pius X.

Here you can buy/sell/trade/get rid of your precious/surplus/unwanted liturgical goods, such as extra vestments, cruets, chalices, candlesticks, altar servers, etc.

Items are considered New for about 30 days, and once they are sold, will be displayed for about 60 days so folks know they were sold.

On your item's page you can see how many times the item was viewed.

How the exchange is made

The exchange (i.e., the barter/sale/deal/tradeoff/giveaway/cheating/ripoff, etc.) is all between you and the person who wants to acquire your stuff. The buyer is expected to pay any shipping costs; but the mode ought to be settled between parties before shipping.

If you are selling, then, when/if (keep hoping) people like your item(s), they will contact you via the contact information you provide to us, and which is displayed on your item's page.

When you have concluded the deal with your client you will need to inform us so we can mark your item as SOLD (If you don't tell us, people will keep contacting you!). Items will remain on the site with a SOLD tag for a month or so before they are removed. Also, if your contact information expires, we will remove your items without any notice.

We do not charge any fees for this service.

All you have to do is send us an email with your information. Our email address is , in case you were a bit unsure. We are waiting for your email 24/6 (We're off on Sundays).

A few things of note

First, all submissions for Regina Cœli House Shoppe must be approved. If your item meets all the specs above, and we think the item is worthy of Regina Cœli House Shoppe, then we will add it to the site. If your submission is found lacking in some respect, we will kindly let you know so you can supply what was missing/not good enough/ignored/stated in the directions but not paid any attention to. We reserve the right to accept or reject any submission for any reason we wish.

We will only accept church-related items. We will not accept other items, such as your old jalopy/used kitchen electronics/typewriters/10-year-old computers/leftover printer cartridges, etc.

Don't worry about evil email spammers. Your email address is obfuscated in the code and displayed dynamically via javascript. If you like, you can view source and look for an email address, but you won't find it. Neither can the spam-bots find it.

Please keep in mind that it will take us a couple of weeks to process your submissions. We don't post anything in a hurry; but you are welcome to check in with us to make sure we haven't forgotten you.

The Nitty Gritty

Due to the private nature of this site, potential buyers must be members or officials of the SSPX, and the items should be intended for use by our priests, chapels or schools. Vendors may be private parties, but we are under no obligation to host any information. We are free to accept or deny any vendor and any item.
