Recieve the Wrong Item?
While we we try hard to be perfect, we are only human. The reality is that sometimes we make mistakes in the fulfillment of orders. Other times, the merchandise may be damaged during the shipping process. In these situations we want to do everything we can to fix the error as quickly as possible. If we made an error in the fulfillment of your order (e.g. you received an item you did not order) follow the instructions below.
Ship the package back via a traceable shipping method with a delivery confirmation to ensure that we receive your package. Any orders returned without any means of tracking or delivery confirmation will be considered an unauthorized return. We will not be held responsible for crediting your account, if we cannot verify receipt of the return. All costs associated with shipping are at the expense of the customer and are non-refundable. Once your package has been received and inspected, a credit will be issued to your charge card for the price of the item(s) being returned. If your order was placed with a check or money order, you will receive a check.

In this case, place a new order for the replacement item on our website and ship the original merchandise back via the U.S. Post Office with proof of delivery. Only by shipping through the Post Office will we be able to see your shipping charges and credit you for the correct amount. A refund for the original item and all shipping costs will be given as long as our guidelines are fully met.
Please call our Customer Service department to initiate a claim. Depending on the item you ordered and the time of year, we may be able to ship the correct item immediately if you need. In other cases that may not be possible. Replacement merchandise will be sent and charged until the original merchandise is recieved back to our warehouse. The customer service representative responding to your claim will let you know what we can do and the time frame in which we can do it. In either case, we will need the incorrect item returned to us (assuming you don't wish to keep it). If you do wish to keep it, we will refund the difference in price between what you ordered and what you received (assumes the item you ordered is more expensive than what we shipped). If the item you received in error is more expensive and you wish to keep it, you may do so at no additional cost - our mistake.

Failed Delivery Attempts
Most of the carriers we use will make three attempts to deliver a package. It is generally up to the driver's discretion to determine whether a signature is required. If the driver feels it is best to obtain a signature and no one is present to accept the delivery after three attempts, the package will be returned to us. We are unable to re-ship orders that are returned to us as undeliverable. If you want to purchase items that were returned as undeliverable, you may place a new order.
