You have 30 days to return items for a full refund. All items must be received in the exact same condition as they were originally packaged, shipped or handed over. After an item is received & determined to be in it's original condition, the buyer will be issued a full refund (minus all shipping costs if there were any involved). Initial shipping, return shipping and insurance costs are the responsibility of the customer and are added in to the total cost of the original sale if applicable. All items are vintage and antique and are therefore sold "as is".
HOLDS AND LAY-A-WAYS:
We can place pieces on hold for you and set a schedule that works with the needs of your project. Our typical on-hold period is three days.
Lay-a-way is available on most (some exceptions apply) items for a 90-day period. A down payment of at least 25% is required. After initial payment has been made, a client can make payments of any amount at any time. The item must be paid in full by the end of the 90 days. If the item is not paid in full by the end of the 90 days, the item may be returned to stock. Any payment(s) customer has made will not be refundable, but may be used as a credit towards future purchases (some exceptions apply). Exactly when the item is placed into the hands of the client will be at the discretion of Lost Art and may change on a case-by-case basis.
On approval loans are granted on a case-by-case basis as a courtesy to our clients. For those of you outside the San Francisco area, we understand that you may want to take out pieces on approval and present them to your client in person. In this case we can package and ship these pieces to you according to our shipping fees. We can set a schedule that works with the needs of your project. Items must be guaranteed by a credit card. The card is not charged unless the items are not returned according to the agreed upon schedule. Items must be returned in the exact same condition as they were originally packaged, shipped or handed over.
Most pieces are available for rent. The rental fee is 20% of the retail price for two continuous weeks. For example,a $300 item costs $60 to rent. Longer rental periods are also available. For various reasons, certain pieces may not be available for rental. Exceptions are at the discretion of Lost Art Salon. Credit card info and a signed agreement are required. Items must be returned in the exact same condition as they were originally packaged, shipped or handed over. Selection, pick-up, hanging and drop off is the responsibility of the renter.
Most pieces may be used for various types of photo shoots, film and TV. Some pieces are not available for rent due to active estates for the artists. For many collections, we have direct permission from the artist or family of the artist, allowing images to be used.

SHIPPING WITHIN THE UNITED STATES:
Unless otherwise arranged, items for domestic delivery are generally shipped out every week using FedEx Ground Service. We have found Ground Service to be the least expensive and most reliable method for shipping. This service takes two to five business days depending on the destination location. Items going to the East Coast typically take the maximum five business days and items on the West Coast can take as little as two business days.
The sample packing and shipping prices provided below are meant to give you an approximate price. However, because each piece is unique and shipping costs are based on size, weight and destination, each package will vary and therefore must be priced according to the exact amount charged by FedEx Ground.
Please let us know if you have your own FedEx account and prefer to use it for your shipping. In that case only the cost of packaging will be applied.
