Europe & Rest Of The World Delivery Rates:
As of 6/02/2019 I only offer Tracked/Tracked & Signed shipping for the European Union and Rest of the world as many parcels go missing or tend to take a long time to arrive when using economy delivery services.

Posting & Packaging Details
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and government restrictions, I am limiting my trips to the post office to once a week. My posting day is FRIDAY.
All orders placed by Friday noon (UK time) shall be dispatched the same day, unless otherwise specified.
If you require a prompt delivery, please contact me before ordering so this can be arranged.
All items are posted in padded envelopes and presented in eco-friendly gift boxes or pillow boxes.
If ordering multiple items as gifts for different people, please specify at checkout so I can wrap them individually or as instructed by you.
*Please note that due to their size and particular shapes, I cannot provide the gift wrapping service for my fairy house jars/lanterns.
In order to save resources and to keep my business as green as possible, I use natural, recyclable gift boxes and you can use them again if you desire! I occasionally recycle paper, larger cardboard posting boxes and envelopes, I don't print out receipts; all to save paper, hence trees.
Returns & Refunds
Returns are accepted within 15 days of receipt provided the item hasn't been used, broken or altered in any way.
The buyer will be given a full refund of the item and original posting costs. The buyer is responsible for the return shipping costs.
In the case in which the item has been altered or broken, refunds are not accepted.
I don't accept returns of items on sale or customized ones, due to their personalized nature.
Tutorial fees are not refundable.
Lost in Transit
I do my best to make sure all items arrive safe and sound to destination, but apart from providing proof of posting, I have no control over the care that is given to them during transit.
If your item hasn't arrived within the expected time frame, please do not hesitate to contact me.
