Are all the items authentic antiques?2020-04-12T14:44:44-04:00

We deal in vintage and antiques items from a wide range of dates ranging from around 1890’s to the 1980’s. We also sell reproductions, hard to find items, discontinued items, and new items with an antique look and feel. All items listed have a “Condition” statement and will always be clearly marked as such if not a genuine antique or vintage item. Always read the “Details” we describe and the “Condition”, as well as review the pictures provided to get the best overall information on the item. However, every piece we sell is hand selected for genuineness and quality.

Do you clean or restore items prior to selling?2020-04-12T14:44:44-04:00

We try to keep items in their original condition as far as possible. If an item has been cleaned or restored in anyway, (only if extremely necessary), be it painted or another original finish, we will clearly mark this within the item’s description.
Many people enjoy the darker patina that builds on silver and silver-plated pieces over time. We will always show the piece in its current condition. If you enjoy the bright shine of polished silver, let us know, we will clean it before we ship. Just ask, it’s our free service!

How do I pay for an item?2020-04-12T14:44:44-04:00

We take all major credit cards: MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express. Also, Debit cards as long as they have a Visa or MC logo and Paypal payments are also accepted.

Where do you ship to?2020-04-12T14:50:44-04:00

We ship within the contiguous United States at standard rates and shipping fees are included in the price for the majority of our items. If you are located in Alaska, Hawaii or Puerto Rico and would like to purchase an item, please contact us first for shipping rates using the Contact Form provided or email us at [email protected]. Typically, those rates are much higher, we want you to be well advised of all fees prior to placing your order with us.

Can I put an item on hold?2020-04-12T14:44:44-04:00

Due to the nature of our business and the limited quantities available on many items, we cannot hold any items. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.

How long will it take for my order to arrive?2020-04-12T14:51:34-04:00

You should expect to receive your order within three (3) to seven (7) working days upon payment verification. If you experience delays in receiving your order, contact us immediately using the Contact Form provided or email us at [email protected] and we will help to confirm the status of your order.

Do you accept returns?2020-07-26T11:54:19-04:00

Please make sure you love the item before purchasing, we cannot accept returns or replace your item. If there’s a problem with your order, please let us know ASAP using the Contact Us form provided or email us at [email protected] and we will do our very best to make things right.

The state of Florida does not have any laws that force merchants to accept a return of a purchased item. However, the state does require merchants to post a notice in the store regarding their “no returns accepted” policy.  Please accept this as our notice.

The majority of our packages ship Priority Mail and Insured to protect our customers.  If your item arrives damaged or broken, the fastest way to receive a refund is through the United States Postal Service (USPS).  You may file a claim at usps.com, but keep in mind they will require photos of the item, damaged box, and shipping label with your claim.  If you would like us to file the claim on your behalf, please Contact Us via email at [email protected] as soon as possible, there is a limited time in which to file a claim.  You will need to send us all the required information and pictures, as well as keeping all materials including the shipping box until your claim is resolved.

What do you consider Antique or Vintage?2020-04-12T14:44:45-04:00

As a general rule, anything over 100 years old is Antique. We consider anything over 30 years old Vintage, although we’ve seen items that are 20 years old be called vintage, we are a bit more conservative.
