What happens if an item I ordered is out-of-stock, backordered, or has been discontinued? TOP
We make every effort to ensure that the items listed for retail sale on our website are updated to reflect the item's correct availability status as provided by the manufacturer, but occasionally, items are abruptly discontinued or become "out-of-stock" without our knowledge. This is a very rare occurence, but it can happen. If an item you ordered is found to be unavailable or discontinued, we will either issue you a refund for the price of that item, or you may choose another item of equal or lesser value to replace the unavailable item, and we will refund you the difference in price, if any.
Backordered items are items which are unavailable until a later date. Popular items which have sold quickly are often backordered by the manufacturer, meaning they do not have any "on hand" or "in-stock" that can ship immediately. If you order an item that is on backorder, you can expect to wait a little longer for your item to be shipped and delivered.
How do I cancel my order? TOP
Unfortunately, we do not accept cancellations for orders which have been placed and have already been processed by our billing department. On rare occassions, we may cancel your order if you contact us immediately after placing it, but we reserve the right to deny your cancellation request if your order has already been processed and/or placed with the manufacturer.
What is a "custom made" item? TOP
The majority of the items listed on our website are considered "custom made" items. Custom made items are items which are made upon order, meaning they are not pre-made, "in-stock" items that are produced in large quantities. Custom made items are unique and are not made until they are ordered, which means that they will require "creation" time in order to be completed prior to shipping. It is impossible for these items to ship immediately, unless the manufacturer or designer happens to have one on-hand in the exact same color, size, etc. that you need. Some items that fall into the "custom made" category are: pettiskirts, tutus, apparel, personalized or monogrammed items, hair bows, etc. For information on the estimated delivery time and our return policy for custom made items, please check out the "Shipping Info" and "Return Policy" pages on our website.
What is an "in-stock" item? TOP
In-stock items are items which are produced in large quanitities by the manufacturer. The are usually pre-made and waiting to ship upon order. Some examples of "in-stock" items are diaper bags, gift baskets, shoes, hats, headbands, furniture, decor, toys, games, bibs and burp cloths, blankets, bedding, etc.
How will my order ship? TOP
Many of our items are shipped from the designer or manufacturer directly to your doorstep. In most cases, your orders will ship via either UPS Ground or USPS Priority Mail.
When can I expect my order to be delivered? TOP
Shipping and delivery times vary depending upon the nature of the item ordered. Items which are considered to be "custom made" can take up to three weeks to be completed prior to shipping. Items considered to be "in-stock" or "non-custom" ship within 2-3 days. Please click on the "Shipping Info" button on our home page to learn more about the differences between "custom" and "in-stock" items and for more details on our estimated shipping and delivery times.
Is it possible to rush the shipment of my order if needed? TOP
Yes, in most cases, we can add a "rush" to your shipment in order to speed up the delivery time of your order. (Applies mainly to custom-made items only). In most cases, you will be given the option of adding "rush shipping" to specific items for an additional fee. If not, please contact us to have "rush shipping" added your order, and we will work with you and make every effort to honor your request. Please provide us with the specific date you need your item by so that we can determine whether or not your request is possible.
Will all of the items in my order ship together in the same package? TOP
If you purchased multiple items, you may receive each item in a seperate shipment (unless the items ordered are from the same designer, brand, etc). We carry items from many different manufacturers, designers, and brands, and in most cases, the manufacturer or designer ships the item directly to your doorstep, so it is impossible to combine your items into one package prior to shipping. Because of this, you may receive the items you purchased in multiple shipments that are delivered at different times. Also, please remember that "custom made" items take longer to be delivered than "in-stock" items.
What is your return and/or exchange policy? TOP
We happily accept returns for qualifying items purchased from our boutique. Qualifying items include items that are considered "in stock", such as diaper bags, burp cloths, blankets, bibs, toys, etc. (Some restrictions apply). Items returned to us must have original tags, be unworn and unwashed, and include all original parts and/or accessories. All returned items are inspected for any signs of use or damage before a refund is issued. We can sometimes exchange an item for exact same item in a different size or color.
