The Deco Spirit Shipping Rules

Please don't send payment until you've been given a total including shipping. If we're forced to return payment for any reason we're still responsible for the fee incurred.

Shipping is almost always done within 48 hours of receipt of payment. We make no money on shipping or handling. Buyer usually pays actual shipping costs. With small items we may occasionally estimate shipping, but the rate will never vary from the actual cost by more than a few dollars.

In most cases there is no fee for packing material. Ocasionally, however, with very large pieces it may be necessary to purchase a special box. In this situation the buyer will be charged for the box only, and will be notified of the additional charge when the shipping cost is given. Unless buyer requests otherwise, we generally ship Priority Mail, however if a package is extremely large or heavy, we may ship UPS ground. We make every effort to keep shipping costs as low as possible.

Buyer must pay for insurance. We cannot be responsible for lost or damaged items. We go to great lengths to pack each item for maximum safety, haven't lost one yet. However, if an item is damaged during shipping it is the responsibility of the buyer to obtain the insurance receipt from us and to file a claim with UPS or the post office, or whatever carrier handled the item.

Return Policy

All sales are final unless an item is misrepresented. Refunds will not be given for any reason other than misrepresentation. With this said, please ask all questions before purchasing an item.


All measurements are approximate. All damage is described to the best of our ability. Unless otherwise stated, all items are guaranteed vintage. No reproductions will be knowingly sold on this site. Please feel free to request additional photos and information before purchasing.

We do run all electrical items for at least a day or two to make sure that they are working properly before they leave here, however all items that are mechanical or electrical come with a caveat: these vintage items are delicate, and sometimes they just stop working. Also, shipping can be brutal! Even if a piece is in perfect working condition when it leaves here, we cannot guarantee that it will arrive in the same working condition. Therefore, at no time is continued working condition guaranteed.

Payment Policy

Payment may be made by money order (preferably postal), cashier's check, or PayPal. All payments must be made payable to Bill Slackman. No payments to Deco Spirit will be accepted. No personal checks will be accepted unless arrangements are made in advance. Any special arrangements for payment must be approved in advance, and all payments must clear before item is shipped (5-10 business days for personal checks, and usually no more than 48 hours for money orders and cashier's checks). Payment is expected within 10 days of purchase. If payment is not received within the specified period, and arrangements have not been approved for an extension, we reserve the right to resell the item.

If you wish to pay by credit card, we accept all major credit cards only through PayPal. You don't have to be a PayPal member to use this option.
