·      Decodame.com reserves the right to change any prices at any time.

·      Prices shown on this website are ‘net’. Net price means the price shown on our website is our lowest trade price. There are no additional trade discounts available for dealers, architects  or designers. We have found that this policy works well, as designers and collectors can quickly determine if a piece in in their budget and make an informed decision to buy or look for something else that may better suit their needs and budget. If time is spent emailing back and forth, much time can be lost and an item could be sold to another client in the meantime. This net pricing policy is for everyone’s benefit.

·      Items are final sale. We do no send items out on approval.

·      We try to buy merchandise in the best available condition, or to restore it to perfection, but occasionally we buy items that have flaws that we do not restore. These items are always noted as such and are priced accordingly. Please do not ask for additional discounts for the flaws, as we have already discounted the item. Typically, age and patina on a vintage item are expected and desired. Remember, you are buying an item that is most likely 80 to 100 years old or more.

·     We want you to be confident in your decision. We also want your repeat business! We are happy to supply additional pictures and information on items that you are interested in. We do our best to accurately describe the size and condition of each item. We note overall condition in general terms and we are happy to supply photos in larger format for your inspection.

·      Please remember that most of these items are antique or vintage, circa 1800s to 1970s.

·      Do not expect to receive a new item! This means in most cases items have expected, age appropriate signs. Condition is noted for each item and priced accordingly. We do our best to purchase merchandise in excellent condition, however, these items are vintage or antique and will show their age. If we have had an item restored or repaired, or know of any prior restoration work done, we will note it in the description.

·      In the antique and auction world, it is acceptable to have up to 30% of a piece repaired before affecting its value.

      Items are available for inspection, by appointment only.

·      Item cost, shipping and insurance costs must be pre-paid in full and all funds must clear our bank before an item is shipped. Packing and Shipping fees on Furniture, lighting, architectural items and decorative art pieces are to be paid directly to the shipper. For most items we use the UPS Store of Naples (location # 3139). Only jewelry items and small decorative objects sent via priority mail are added onto your total when you receive your order confirmation. We suggest Vintage Transport for all continental US furniture shipments.
