I've never heard of Ecrater, how do I know the seller of this shop is reputable?
When checking out on Ecrater, the seller does not have access to your financial information.
Many sellers on Ecrater opt to use this Marketplace due to the low fees associated with selling on this platform. With that being said, most sellers do not use Ecrater as the only marketplace that they sell on, therefore with a little investigation, you can most likely find additional information about a seller on better known marketplaces like Ebay, Bonanza, Ruby Lane, Etsy etc... Even though Ecrater has a feedback system, if the seller has little or no feedback, try and locate them on another platform / marketplace and review their feedback from there. In addition, remember that when selecting Paypal as your payment method, buyers are covered under buyer protection policy. Most credit cards also offer consumer protection as well.
Art Obsessed has shops on Ebay and Etsy, both with 100% positive feedback.
Do you ship international locations?
YES!!! We have extensive shipping experience to international locations, especially Brazil! Please inquire within for appropriate pricing, for pricing shown for international shipping fees might not be correct.
Why does the item I want to purchase indicate that it's status as being on hold?
There could be several reasons for an item's status showing as being on hold.
One of the reasons is if the shop's status is currently set to inactive/vacation status. During this time all items will appear with their status as being on hold. Upon the shop's status being activated, all available items will be able to be purchased and will no longer show as being on hold.
Another reason an item's status might be showing as being on hold is if the seller has accepted a deposit &/or payment agreement for the item from a potential buyer. Therefore, the item is on hold awaiting payment. Sometimes these transactions aren't completed, therefore it doesn't hurt to inquire as to if the item is available for purchase.
There are times when an item's status is shown as being on hold when in actuality the item is still available but more likely the item has been sold. There seems to be a glitch within Ecrater's system, which sometimes shows items no longer available as being on hold.
Your best bet is to contact the shop to inquire if an item is still available for purchase. You can also view the shops other informational sections to see if there is a notation that they are on vacation.

What does Art Obsessed sell?
We are best known for sourcing vintage mid century modern fine goods, as well as, other eye catching creations. We are particulary fond of and familiar with the lucite (acrylic) and tend to have many items available in this medium. We focus most of our efforts on art and home decor items, but occasionally we also offer other interesting finds. We are very familiar with the works of Abraham Palatnik and have a large collection of pieces available for purchase. Many aren't even listed on Ecrater at this time!
