About UpcycledClassics

Sales 1,970
On Etsy since 2013

I find, I upgrade, I actually use, then I offer the fun to others.

Cameras, lamps and other fun of yesteryear live happily in our home. We are always out looking for new to us additions. Buying vintage items online has proven to have more disappointments than joy. Cameras listed as 'working' can mean little more than the seller pushed the shutter button and something happened. Often, that has meant that a item I have been looking for ends up not being usable. I like to use the vintage items! To help others not have to go through the many disappointments on the way to finding what they are looking for, I offer yesteryear items that actually work to be sure they live up to my expectations. This doesn't always mean items are restored to 100% original vintage parts, it does mean that items sold can be used without worrying. It's about the fun of yesteryear things that you may have owned or wanted in your hands can now be used again.

    I grew up in a house where we kept our things a long time. This was done by keeping everything working as they should and often updating along the way with new technology.

Returns and exchanges
Repair/Replace 6 month warranty.
I do not offer a refund on any of the cameras I sell. For the Polaroid cameras, I do offer to repair or replace a camera if it has issues within 6 months from purchase date. While I do a final test after assembling the camera by taking actual print photos, these are vintage cameras so little parts can fail after a short time. When this happens, please contact me so I know about the issue, then ship the camera to me. As long as the camera only shows normal wear, no abuse or changes to the camera from how I shipped it, I will either repair the camera or replace it at no charge to you. I will also pay to ship the camera back to you.
