Unfortunately we can’t offer refunds or exchanges since items are hand-made/crafted.
All orders are considered "FINAL".
We do our best to ensure items arrive safely. We also understand postal carriers can be rough on boxes.
We provide package protection insurance through USPS for all domestic shipments. Because damaged items are required to be inspected by USPS for the claim process, customers (recipients) will now be able to submit a claim for damaged or lost packages directly with USPS.
During the claim process, should the requested items not be provided for inspection by USPS, there is a higher probability the claim will be denied.
FOR DAMAGED ITEMS OR LOST PACKAGES
Shipping Insurance and Claims
Package protection insurance is purchased on all domestic shipments using USPS Shipping Insurance. Packages ship via USPS using USPS Priority Mail or Ground Advantage which automatically covers packages that are damaged or lost up to a value of $100. Insurance fees are based on the item’s declared value, which cannot exceed the price of the item. USPS offers resolutions on shipping issues, so if you are within the US and have an issue with a package that is lost, arrived damaged or was missing contents you (the customer/recipient) may file a claim with USPS directly.
Filing a USPS claim
Domestic customers (recipients) may file a claim with USPS for insured mail that is lost, arrived damaged or was missing contents. The person filing must have the original mailing receipt which can be obtained by emailing email@example.com
to request a copy. Each claim must be filed within a certain time period and include proof of insurance, value and damage. Learn more
about filing USPS claims and to view the deadlines in which claims can be filed.
If an item arrives broken, damaged, or package is lost, please contact us immediately to obtain the mailing receipt to use along with your claim. Domestic customers (recipients) are able to file a claim directly with USPS as they can assist you if your order was lost, damaged, or was missing items.
Please keep all damaged items, packaging, and shipping label to provide USPS for your claim. If you are unable to file a claim online you may take all the items in your order (packaging, shipping label, mail receipt, and all contents) to your local post office and file a claim. Items are required to be inspected by USPS for the claim process. Should they not be provided there is a higher probability the claim will be denied.
