Returns Policy

Shop with confidence with extended returns furing coronavirus lockdown

We know the next few months may be difficult to get out and about normally. So we have extended our returns policy to enable you to send orders back to us when this all blows over. You can return your goodies up to 14 days after we reopen our gallery (we’ll notify you as soon as that happens).

However, as a small business, we do need to know you are returning items so we don’t reorder them. As such we ask that you contact us to register your return within 14 days of receiving your goodies.
