I accept returns within 14 days of receipt. Buyer must notify me before shipping item(s) back. The item(s) must be in sellable condition in their original packaging. Buyer pays return shipping unless the item(s) are defective.
First Class domestic packages generally take 3-5 days to arrive at their destination. However, keep in mind that the USPS describes the service as taking 2-10 business days (business days do not include holidays or weekends).

First Class International packages generally take 1-2 weeks to arrive at their destination. However, they sometimes can take up to a month to arrive due to Customs delays, etc.

Your best course of action in any situation where a package has not arrived is to contact your local post office first. I do not consider domestic/international packages "lost" until at least a month has passed.

Please contact me if your package is lost and I will do what I can to rectify the situation.
