First of all, let me say that I absolutely love this lamp, and that it was exactly as pictured! Unfortunately, I ordered it 2 days before Christmas, though it was about two days after New Year's before the woman who owns the shop emailed me, stating that the amount she had estimated for shipping fell $20 short of the actual cost, and that after checking all possibilities she had settled on the USPS. Needless to say, it took about 2 more weeks to arrive, but when it did I saw that it had been packaged so amazingly well that nothing could have damaged it! For that I was very grateful. While I would have paid the extra shipping fee, I was content with the fact that she chose not to charge me, even though it did slow down the handling process. However, in the end I was extremely happy with my purchase, and would buy from her again!

If you would, please read PAST customer reviews, Decades Emporium earned a “5 STAR” rating. Be assured the utmost care is given to our valued customers, merchandise & packaging procedures. *Prior to customer purchase, questions were answered, additional photos forwarded to assist with decision. UNTIL I READ THE POSTED REVIEW I was totally unaware customer "had issues with the owner", I was not contacted prior to review. Then the next day, I received an email from customer requesting possible “compensation” for damages. I immediately contacted the customer, reassured her item was insured & several photos were needed to process a claim. Over the past month, I sent numerous in-depth emails, my cell phone number, no response or acknowledgement from customer.

DECADES EMPORIUM ISSUED A TOTAL REFUND INCLUDING SHIPPING. Customer sent 1 photo, although, several were requested. Shipper paid 65% of refund, remaining 35% I refunded. When reimbursement was issued, it included an apology & copy of check from shipper, as well, I asked if she would kindly reconsider her review. Ten days later, her response was beyond insulting with false accusations. This ignorant retort made it clear I had been scammed, I forwarded her a factual account of events. Evidently, during the holiday season, deceptive individuals rise to the occasion. This incident was reported to Etsy Corp. to further investigate. SINCE 2O12 IT'S BEEN MY PRIVILEGE TO SERVE FANTASTIC PATRONS APPRECIATE MY WORK & SERVICE WITH 5 STAR RATING, PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO CONSIDER THESE GENUINE CUSTOMER REVIEWS

About

Decades Emporium

Several years ago I owned a brick and mortar store that featured previously owned home furnishings, including vintage / antiques items, painted furniture, as well as, interior design services. With despair, the store closed in Sept 2008 in the height of the great recession...need I say more.

Picking myself up by the boot straps and considering the fact, once a treasure "hunter" always a hunter, I knew I needed an avenue to sell these fine treasures. Initially, I started selling in co-ops, then I found Etsy and opened a store in 2012. That was a scary endeavor, not knowing a single thing about selling merchandise on-line, i.e., item description's, pictures, measuring, weighing, listing, packaging, shipping providers...OMG who knew...it was quite a daunting task.

Well...here I am, a few years later, a tad wiser, still searching and rescuing antique/vintage objects, giving them a new life and hopefully a new home. Due to the age of vintage and antique items, inherently, they will have a natural patina, age cracks, occasional scrapes/ scratches/ chips and other irregularities...creating it's uniqueness, character and genuine beauty. However, prior to making any of these finds available to a valued customer, items are meticulously inspected for any obvious unacceptable defects.
Some of the pieces in my collection are hand painted with a durable European chalk paint and hand finished with several coats of wax.

My goal is to provide unique quality products and "service that is second to none". I truly love this journey and greatly appreciate your interest. Don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, I Iook forward to assisting you.

If you like what you see, please add me to your "favorite shop" ...Thank you...Thank you!
