Returns Due to Color

  • Returns of products due to the different shades of color are subject to the standard return policy.  Colors produced on a screen (monitors, laptops, tablets, cell phones, etc.) vary greatly from company to company and product to product. Ambient light, brightness, color settings, and the viewing angle of a display play a major role in color reproduction. Our vendors do their best to supply us proper colors but due these variables, we cannot guarantee the exact color of a product shown in the pictures. 

Returns Due to Material

  • Returns of products due to quality of the material are subject to the standard return policy.  Quality (i.e. softness, texture, etc.) of a material is subjective.   We provide digital swatches to view the texture of the material.  Please inquire about physical swatches if the digital swatches do not suffice.  Physical swatches may not be available for all products and may incur shipping fees.

Returns Due to Dimensions

  • Returns of products due to the incorrect dimensions are subject to the standard refund policy if the actual dimensions lie within 5% of the dimensions listed.  

Returns Due to Lack of Photos

  • Photos are a certain representation of what the product sold by the supplier. Our suppliers do their best to supply the correct photos of the products with as many viewing angles as possible but issues pertaining to missing angle views of the photos or products not matching the exact photos listed are subject to the standard return policy. 

Returns of Artwork

  • Due to the nature of artwork (figurines, statues, framed art, wall art, decorative art pieces, etc.), inconsistencies may arise from product to product. This is especially the case with custom made items or items that are made by hand. Return requests for artwork items not appearing as pictured will be subject to the standard return policy. If artwork is a special or custom order, it is not eligible for a return.
