Handmade Stained Glass Products
All our glassware is handmade in our studios in North Dorset. When purchasing customers must understand that due to the nature of the craft involved, slight variations can occur in size, shape, colour and pattern. Images and sizes provided are for guidance only but will be adhered to as closely as possible.
Items ordered online must be paid for in full at time of ordering, payment is accepted by credit and debit card through our secure website checkout process.
Your card payment will be processed in GBP Sterling and your receipt will show GBP Sterling prices.
If your card is non-UK or held in a different currency, your card issuer will charge you the Currency Exchange Rate in use for that day and this will be shown on your monthly statement. Please note that any refund will be made in GBP and your card issuer will refund you using the Exchange Rate that is in use for that day and this could be different to the original rate you were charged when making your payment. Your card issuer may also levy a currency conversion charge and/or a transaction fee, and this may not be reversed in the event of any refund or order cancellation. This means that your refund could be slightly more or less than you have originally paid, and we will not be responsible for this difference.
Shipping prices where applicable for orders depend on weight and size of the order and are calculated from the items in your ‘Basket’ and which delivery method is chosen. Delivery charges are shown on the order before payment is taken.
Goods will be sent by Royal Mail Delivery which may require a signature on receipt. We aim to dispatch goods in 3 – 5 working days.
If the item is a ‘made to order’ piece – as indicated on the product description page – this can take 4-6 weeks to be made plus delivery time. If unsure, please contact us before placing an order for a delivery estimate.
After goods are dispatched, we have no control over Courier or Royal Mail delivery and cannot be held responsible for any postal delays due to their services and schedules.
Order Cancellations / Returns Policy
Customers have the right to cancel orders up to and including 7 working days after the day which they receive the goods to receive a full refund including delivery charges. Refunds will be made within 30 days of order cancellation.
The customer returning goods due to a cancelled order is responsible for all return delivery costs.
Customers must take reasonable care of goods and when returning items must ensure they are suitably packed to ensure they are not damaged in transit. If the consumer does not exercise reasonable care and the goods are damaged in transit, the customer will be charged for breach of this statutory duty.
Cancellations should be made in writing (via post, email or fax) although can be informed over the phone but must be confirmed in writing also. (If cancellation made by post the 7 working day limit will apply to the day the letter is posted, not the date letter received by us).
If goods are faulty or incorrect items received the customer will be refunded the return postage costs.
Unused items can be returned within 30 days of receipt for a full refund but once the 7 day cancellation period has expired, only the item price will be refunded not the delivery charge, and the customer is also responsible for costs of return.
