We offer free gift-wrapping services to our customers. We wrap in a simple white glossy paper with a fabric bow, or during the Holiday Season, silver foil paper with a matching silver fabric bow. We also offer personalized gift-tags. Simply make your request in the "customer notes" section of your order form with all of your instructions. If you miss this step, email us at: email@example.com and we will take care of the rest. Sorry, but we cannot gift-wrap lamps, mirrors, artwork or furniture! Gift-wrapping is not available on our 'SALE & FREE SHIPPING' items.
We offer Visa, MasterCard, American Express and paypal as payment options.
Orders are usually shipped out within 2-3 days of placement. If an item is marked on our website "allow two weeks" for delivery, this usually means that this is an item we may not have in stock, but are able to receive inventory on in a timely fashion. Items marked "special order" are exactly that and may take longer than two weeks to arrive to you. Please keep in mind that Special Order items are not returnable. We strive to keep our customers updated on their order's progress. When your order actually ships, you will receive an email from us with your UPS tracking number. We do not add on any handling or processing fees onto our orders.
All of our orders are shipped by UPS. All of our merchandise is inspected before shipping and wrapped very carefully to avoid damage. Please inspect your order for damages as soon as you receive it. Please let us know within five (5) days if there is any damage to your items so that we may notify UPS immediately to file the appropriate claim. We will be happy to replace any damaged items.
WHEN AN ITEM IS OFFERED WITH "FREE SHIPPING", PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT OUR FREE SHIPPING OFFER ONLY APPLIES TO THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES.
WE WILL NOT INTERCEPT A PACKAGE ONCE IT HAS LEFT OUR STORE.
