The Medalia Advantage

Why buy from MedaliaArt

1. We have been selling Caribbean art on-line since 1996.
2. 7 day "no questions asked" money back guarantee.
3. We pride ourselves on our customer service. Emails are usually answered within an hour. We value your concerns and respect your need for a timely answer.
4. Monthly specials and secret specials throughout our site. Look carefully when you view our galleries! We have placed a selection of paintings on sale. These paintings are not part of our regular advertised specials, nor will they stay on special for very long! We will be changing them often - so keep on checking our galleries. You never know what you may find.
5. Whenever possible we buy directly from the artist - The artists make more, you save more!
6. We offer exclusive sales and special offers for registered guests. You are not required to register to browse or buy from our website.
7. Authenticity guaranteed. We stand behind everything that we sell. Many pieces we buy directly from the artist. When buying from third parties, we are very careful to make sure that there are no misrepresentations. Art forgery is becoming a big business. Know your source! 8. Lay-a-way plans available for those who want to commit but whose budget is saying "not now."
9. Custom quality framing at a very reasonable cost for those paintings not already framed.
10. We are happy to handle special requests! Please call or email us with your requests for specific artists, styles or whatever it is you are looking for. Our aim is to locate the piece that meets your needs and desires.
11. For our International Visitors - We ship world-wide. Our carrier of choice is the US Postal Service. It is fast, efficient and low cost. Now receiving packages from the US doesn't have to be expensive. (We will, of course, use the carrier of your choice, if you prefer.)

I have just opened it and am THRILLED with what's inside!!! The painting is so very lush and lyrical--much more resonating than the photo sent earlier. I can't wait to hang it! I'm so delighted that you managed to find such a lovely and original Bresil painting. Good job!

Gregor writes:

We got the painting from our customs postal office and we just love it! The photo on your web page did not do it justice. It is going to look fabulous on our dining room wall. In apition, the customs tax is only 8.5% for artwork instead of usual 20%, so I am very pleased with the whole thing. I'd also like to thank you for your very professional attitude and business ethics. I shall certainly recommend your gallery to my firends. I hope to do business with you again.

Terry writes:

Hope you had a fabulous Holiday and are looking forward to a prosperous 2012! I wanted to write and thank you again for all of your help regarding the two Gerard Fortune paintings which my wife absolutely adored. Therefore, it goes w/out saying that we will not be returning any paintings. In fact when we can afford it, we would love to consider the purchase of apitional paintings in the future. Have a great year and thank you again. Hope to speak with you soon.

Melinda writes:

I have been meaning to write to thank you for the wonderful pen and ink by Eric Girault. I just love it and am so proud to have one of his pieces. What a splendid artist and you two are special for showing these pieces. You are sharing his work with another generation. What a great job you do. I spend a lot of time admiring my Haitian art collection and most of it came from the two of you. It really means a lot to me. Thank you both for the good work you do. Have a blessed holiday season.
