Back Order Policy
Our artists work hard to keep us well supplied, but occasionally some items do run out of stock. These items are indicated as “Back order” in our web store. As a matter of procedure, we ask that all customers let us know how they would like for us to handle their order should one or more of the items in the order be temporarily unavailable. Please choose one of the following options:
Hold & Ship Complete: If there is an out-of-stock item in your order, we’ll hold your order until all of the items are available, and then ship complete so that you’ll experience only one shipping charge.
Ship Now & Then: If there is an out-of-stock item in your order, we’ll ship available items right away by the shipping method you chose, and ship your back order by Basic Service when it becomes available. Published shipping rates will apply to each shipment, as if you had placed more than one order. If you are a business account, we’ll contact you to get your approval before shipping any back orders.
Ship Now & Cancel Back Orders: If there is an out-of-stock item in your order, we’ll ship available items right away and will scratch any unavailable items from your order. You can re-order those items at a later time.
Whichever option you choose, our customer service team will go the extra mile to keep you informed regarding availability and expected delivery times. Sometimes it takes quite a while to make a handcrafted item and then get it here from Russia, so we do appreciate your patience and understanding. When applicable, we’ll suggest close substitutions. And we invite you to call to ask questions about your order or request that it be handled in a special way.
Order with confidence and satisfaction. All merchandise is selected for quality and performance and is guaranteed against defects. If not completely satisfied with your order, please contact customer service within 15 days of receipt of the order to request a return for replacement or credit.
