Antique and Vintage Items
Our antique and vintage items are hand-selected domestically and from abroad -- each piece being curated for style, uniqueness, magnificence, and uncommon appeal.
For most antique and vintage items, origin and age are estimated from information gathered at procurement and from knowledge of historical periods and furniture design. Antique and vintage items may not have definitive dates or origins when such knowledge cannot be authenticated.
All antique and vintage sales are final. Returns of antique and vintage items for exchange, credit, or refund are not accepted.
All Circa in-stock upholstery is available for immediate sale and delivery.
Most upholstery items can be custom ordered in alternative fabrics, leathers, customer's own material (COM), finishes, and hardware. Fabric, leather, and finish swatches are available for review and selection in-store, and small fabric cuttings may be mailed when available.
Please contact us for a custom upholstery quote.
MicroSeal Stain and Fade Protection
Fibre seal is an environmentally-safe penetrator treatment for stain and sun-fade protection.
A great majority of upholstery and rugs can be treated with MicroSeal stain and fade protection – including both Circa Interiors items and customers' existing furnishings.
Some Circa items that are in stock or shown on our website may be custom-ordered in various fabrics, leathers, finishes, sizes, and quantities. A 100% deposit is required to initiate a custom order; any freight/shipping balance is due when the item is received at our warehouse or before shipping or delivery.
Lead time for custom orders generally varies from 6 to 20 weeks from order placement.
Many non-custom Circa items that are in stock or shown on our website may be special-ordered in multiple quantities and might be available in limited alternative fabrics or finishes. A 100% deposit is required for special orders.
Lead times for special orders may vary; special orders may ship immediately depending upon availability.
Circa’s in-stock items can be reserved for a 48-hour period with a credit card number help on file. The hold is automatically removed after the 48-hour period. Please contact us to place an item on hold. Hold extensions may be available to Trade accounts but only for 48 hours.
For local customers, most in-stock Circa items may be taken out on approval for a 48-hour period.
A valid credit card number, contact information, and signed approval form are required for items taken on approval. A credit card authorization will be placed on your credit or debit card prior to taking an item on approval. Should you choose to keep the approval item, your credit card will be charged. If have not contacted us by the end of the 48-hour approval period, your credit card will be charged.
Approvals are intended for items a client can physically take out of the store. If an approval item requires delivery, freight, assembly, or other charges, those fees will be charged to your credit card whether or not the approval item is returned.
Please contact us to arrange for approval.
Storage Fees: Timeframe for Pick-up, Shipping, Delivery
All purchases (including in-stock, custom orders, and special orders) MUST be picked-up, shipped, or delivered within 30 days of purchase or receipt at our warehouse. Items not picked up or delivered within 30 days will incur storage fees at the rate of $0.50 per square foot per month.
SHIPPING + DELIVERY
Circa orders will be shipped using the fastest, safest, and most reliable method possible. Items on our website have been identified to ship by a particular method that provides optimal delivery service at the best value. Shipping methods include Small Parcels, Freight Carriers, and White gloves.
Deliveries cannot be made to a P.O. Box, as a physical commercial or residential address is required.
Please contact us regarding expedited shipping.
Circa ships within the 48 contiguous states. Please contact us regarding shipments to Hawaii, Alaska, or international shipping.
Clients may make their own shipping arrangements or can pick them up in the store or warehouse. For special shipping, situations email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When an item ships by Small Parcel, it will be delivered by UPS, FedEx, or USPS. Signatures are not generally required at delivery, but it is at the discretion of each delivery person.
UPON RECEIPT: It is important for you to inspect your shipment carefully. If damage is visible, do not unpack, assemble, or install the product. Instead, notify us immediately (within 3-5 days of delivery). If the item is unpacked, assembled, or installed, it may not be returnable for a replacement item or credit.
Certain items may need to ship via freight carrier. We will contact you prior to shipping your order via a freight carrier to confirm your options and details. When an item ships by Freight Carrier, it usually means that the item is too heavy or too large to ship via Small Parcel services. If your purchase is being delivered via Freight Carrier, you will be contacted by the Freight company prior to delivery to schedule a delivery appointment. You will need to be present to sign for the item.
Please note the following important details about Freight Carrier:
1) You are responsible for moving the item off the back of the delivery truck and into your home (or to wherever it is going). Please plan ahead should you need assistance. Freight Carrier personnel are not required to move the item off the truck. If you are unable to find assistance to move the item, most freight companies offer additional services (such as a lift gate). You are responsible for these additional services and will pay the Freight Carrier directly.
2) Additional costs may be incurred if you live on a small street that is not physically accessible to a freight truck. In such cases, the freight company will need to transfer your purchase onto a smaller truck for delivery. If you know that large moving trucks cannot access your street (a problem in some cities and rural areas), you must contact us in advance of placing your order so that a cost estimate can be obtained.
UPON RECEIPT: It is important for you to inspect your shipment carefully. Any damage to the carton, packaging, or product itself must be noted on the freight bill BEFORE the driver leaves. Please write "PRODUCT DAMAGED" on the sheet you are asked to sign. This ensures that we can assist in correcting the matter should there be any damage.
Notify us immediately if an item is damaged. Note that keeping a defective item does not warrant a discount. If the item is unpacked, assembled, or installed, it may not be returnable for a replacement item or credit.
Most large furnishing items will ship via a blanket-wrapped white glove delivery service. The carrier will bring the item to your home.

Parcels are insured for loss and damage up to the value stated by the courier.
RETURNS + EXCHANGES
Antique and Vintage Items, Custom Order, Special Order or Sale/Mark-down Items
Any item that is antique or vintage, custom ordered, special ordered or a sale/mark-down is not eligible for return; all sales are final, and returns will not be accepted.
To prevent the inconvenience of a return, please address and plan for the item size. Measure your space and make sure that the item will fit where you wish to place it. In addition, measure areas the item will need to pass through in order to get to the placement area (e.g. through doorways, into elevators, down hallways, up staircases).
In addition, please note that fabric and finish colors vary when viewing on different computers, mobile devices, and in different lighting environments. You may request a sample swatch of upholstered items for approval. You may contact us for additional photos of in-stock items.
Your satisfaction is important to us. If you wish to return your order for non-antique or vintage items, you may do so within 7 days of receipt for an exchange or a store credit. Refunds are not issued unless an item is damaged or defective.

Some items may have small or no shipping rates applied at the time of order. Please note that if you return one of these products, the actual shipping/delivery costs will be deducted from your store credit. In addition, some items carry a re-stocking fee which will be deducted from your store credit. Gift wrap or other special services will be deducted from your store credit.
If your order has shipped, it cannot be canceled. If you refuse an order, the standard return policy applies where roundtrip shipping costs and applicable re-stocking fees will be deducted from your store credit.
DAMAGED + DEFECTIVE
For items received damaged or if we determine a new item to have a manufacturer's defect, a replacement item will be shipped after we have received and inspected the returned damaged or defective item. If a satisfactory replacement item cannot be shipped, a full refund will be issued for the item purchase amount and shipping cost.
CANCEL + CHANGE
How To Cancel An Order
Orders canceled may be charged to your account if item shipment cannot be stopped. To cancel an order, you must call or email us immediately and provide your order number, name, and contact information. We will attempt to accommodate your request but cannot guarantee cancellations.
How To Change Your Order
If you need to change something about your order (such as a color, finish type, product, quantity, or shipping), call or email us immediately and provide your order number, name, and contact information. Changes to your original order will be confirmed via e-mail.
Because your items could possibly ship the same day you place your order, we cannot guarantee changes will be made. We will notify you immediately if a change cannot be made.
DUTIES & TAXES
Sales tax has already been applied to the price of the goods as displayed on the website unless you are a verified Trade Member and have a valid resale certificate on file with us.
Import Duties & Taxes
Import duties and taxes for international shipments may be liable to be paid upon arrival in the destination country. This varies by country, and Circa encourages you to be aware of these potential costs before placing an order with us. This will be noted at checkout so you are aware and can decide how to proceed.
If you continue with the order and then refuse to pay duties and taxes upon arrival at your destination country, the goods will be returned to Circa at the customer's expense, and the customer will receive a refund for the value of goods paid, minus the cost of the return shipping. The cost of the initial shipping will not be refunded.
