My Order - FAQ
When do you usually send an order confirmation?
Order confirmations are automatically sent by our system to you as soon as we have received your order. You will receive an electronic receipt via e-mail to the e-mail address you have provided to us. Your credit card is approved upon checkout and then we manually charge your card when we review your order and put it in for either shipment or creation (if it is a custom made to order items). We check to see that the item is still available and that the price was correctly listed. Occasionally, due to a programming error, a product may be listed with the wrong price or with no price at all. We cannot honor incorrect orders and will immediately inform you if there is any problem with the order. We also evaluate the shipping cost of items shipping via freight truck. The system estimates a shipping cost and then we get the actual shipping cost when manually processing your order. Due to increased gas prices, freight shipping is much more expensive than it was this time last year. We will contact you with the actual freight shipping cost before charging your card to get approval. Please contact us if you are having a problem with a drop-down menu or getting an order processed we can usually fix it very quickly so that you can order the item. By checking out, customers are agreeing that they have read and familiarized themselves with our Ordering and Return Policies.Read more

Can I cancel my order?
Since we strive for excellent customer service, orders coming in through the website are often put in and shipped out immediately. Sometimes, even items that may say "Usually ships within 2-3 weeks" are available at the time of order and are shipped right out. If you would like to cancel an order, we can honor the cancellation request provided that the item has not yet shipped. If you try to cancel the order, but the item has already shipped out and is on its way to you, it will be handled as a return and you can refer to our Return Policy section on guidelines for returning items. You are responsible for the cost of shipping the item back to us and will process it as a return for a refund or store credit. We will gladly assist you with a merchandise exchange.
Items that are being handmade or custom made to order can usually be cancelled within 24-48 hours of order receipt. However, there will be exceptions to this if work has begun on an item before we hear from you. If you are on the fence about ordering a custom made to order item, wait until you are sure you want the item before putting your order in as we cannot always promise that the order can be canceled. We always try our best to accommodate our customers!
ALL order cancellations must be made in writing to Customer Service. This way we have a record of when the order was cancelled.Read more

Can you wrap gifts?
Unfortunately, a very limited number of gifts can be gift wrapped. Some can, but will usually say so in the product description. We also have many gift baskets and those can be sent with a note. We have over 9,000 products for the home and strive to offer the best selection of luxuries and gifts, but we unfortunately do not have the staff at this time to offer gift wrapping. We will, however, mail out a Gift Notification in the mail to the gift recipient so they know who the gift is from!Read more

Do you charge sales tax?

I returned an item. When can I expect to see the refund back to my credit card?
Please note that items must be returned and inspected by either our team or our vendors once received. Please note that there is processing time involved to log these returns. A refund back to your credit card can take up to three weeks. Please know this if you are planning a return. We promise that you will get your refund less any applicable restocking fee and shipping fees, but it doesn't always happen when the item is received back. There is some paperwork and checking involved as we need to be sure it came back in the condition it was sent out. Due to the nature of the items we sell, furniture, lighting and decorative accessories, there is an inspection process for receiving goods back that has to happen. Thanks for your patience.Read more
