Payment ❑ I can only accept payments via Paypal, but you do not need to have an account with Paypal. You can use your card to pay as a guest. Please note, any sales/import taxes levied by your own state/country are not included in the item price, are not the seller's responsibility and it is illegal for sellers to mark packages as gifts in order to avoid them.
Shipping ❑ Shipping is combined on multiple purchases - the details for your locality are given in the cart. Inland UK packages are sent by RM first class post. Any significant shipping overcharge in the total calculated by the system will be refunded.
❑ I ship 1-3 working days after payment is received. Unfortunately I cannot guarantee delivery times as these depend on postal services and international packages may also be delayed by customs checks. The delivery times quoted for your location cannot be guaranteed, but specify the longest time for shipping in normal circumstances.
❑ My items are all handmade and generally fragile, and are packaged safely, usually in stout outer boxes with biodegradable (corn) chips around an inner container. Most of my boxes are new, but I occasionally recycle suitable boxes.
Refunds and Exchanges ❑ I am happy to refund in full (item and outward shipping cost plus cost of return shipping) if there should be a fault with any of my items and the faulty product is returned in suitable packaging (preferably the packaging in which it was received unless this has been damaged). Please notify me if you return a package and include the tracking number.
❑ If your purchase has arrived with either the item or the packaging damaged, please send me photos of the damage right away (photos are needed for an insurance claim).
❑ I cannot offer exchanges as my items are all individually made and I will not have (or be able to make) an identical replacement.
❑ You have 14 (calendar) days in which to return an item if you simply decide you don't want it, without explanation. Items must be returned by a tracked service with proof of delivery and packed so that no damage is sustained en route. Please note, if you are returning an item because you have simply changed your mind, the return postage will not be refundable, and a deduction will be made if the items are not received back in the same condition as they were despatched.
❑ If you cancel your order after it has been despatched, please do not accept or open the package when it arrives, but request it is returned to sender and mark it clearly 'Merchandise, Returned to Sender', unless the packaging has been damaged (see above). Any import charges imposed by UK customs if your returning item is over £15 in value will be deducted from the refund amount, but these charges are avoidable if your return is clearly marked 'Merchandise, Returned to Sender'.
❑ Custom-made items are not refundable but I will be eager to work with you to see if we can put right any problems that may arise.
