COVID-19 Policy Update
Thank you so much for your business. We really appreciate your business at this difficult time. At this time we are experiencing shipping delays due to the Coronavirus. We use an outside warehouse company for most of our shipping. They have been having some staffing issues due to restrictions placed on them as far as the number of workers in the building. In addition they service other customers who sell essential items and they are prioritizing those shipments at the moment. While we are happy to know the warehouse is serving those on the front lines and providing essentials to those who need them, we absolutely understand the frustration that comes with the delays on your order. We are working as hard as we can to get every order fulfilled as soon as possible, but unfortunately certain circumstances are out of our control. We expect this order to ship within the next few business days or so. We apologize about the delay. Thank you very much for your business and your patience in these difficult times.
In addition to this All shipping carriers such as USPS, UPS, FedEx, etc. Are experiencing delays. Everyone in the world is ordering online right now and that has caused Christmas level volume without the staff for them to handle it. Because of that, we've seen some shipments take a little longer to arrive at their destination than normal. We appricate your patience!
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak we have to make a few changes to our normal policies:
1. We are not accepting any returns right now. This is for the health and safety of our staff as we do not know the health status of the person the return is coming from. That being said if anything is damaged, you only need to supply a photograph of the item and we'll send a no cost replacement.
2. The majority of our staff is working from home and our warehouse are working with small crews than normal to reduce the number of people working together at one time. This may cause your order to take a few extra days to leave our warehouse than normal. We're still working to make sure every order that can go out does go out. Things are just taking a little longer than normal.
3. Items that are on back order will take longer to come in than normal. Supply chains have had serious disruptions during this situation. If you are waiting on an item that was on back order, please expect it to take a few more months than originally stated due to the delays.
4. Made to order items are also taking longer. Some of our US based artists who hand make each product are not able to go to their workshops at this time. This is causing a delay in those items being made. Please be patient with the adjusted timeframes.
Thank you very much for your patience and understanding in this dificult time!
