  • Returns are within 7 days of receiving your order.
  • Items are unused and show no signs of use, wear or damage and are returned in the original packaging.

Our returns and exchange policy does not include the cost of return shipping. This must be borne by the customer as we are unable to cover the shipping costs associated with change of mind purchases – please choose items carefully when ordering.
