I am more than pleased with the mirror I bought from Dibbs and Dibbs, as well as the immediate responses to my questions and fast shipping. When I first placed my order I was told it was in stock, only to have them tell me the piece was sold. To make up for it they made me another one in only 2 days. Not only that but I asked for the mirror to be made larger, and to make up for the error of the piece being sold they made me a larger one at no additional charge. I live in California, USA, and was worried it would arrive damaged. They did a magnificent job packing it, and my mirror arrived intact and within a week's time. Working with them has been a pleasure and their craftsmanship is second to none! -Peter Chinnici, Petaluma, CA

Ordering from DIBBS&DIBBS
We provide a unique shopping experience at DIBBS&DIBBS. Due to the individual nature of our products and the ability to order any of our products in any colour, shape or size, most of our sales are via commissions or custom orders. We list certain items which we have in stock on our website/Etsy - these are available for purchase as you see them. The price listed is for the dimensions and colouring listed for that product - any other sizes or colour will be a commission or custom order and the price may differ. Please read the Bespoke page on our website for further information about the varied nature of our products and what options are available (eg: different colours and solder options).
Accepted payment methods
Etsy will securely handle your payment info when purchasing products from us via the Etsy website.
Please note that all prices listed are based on the dimensions listed. For example, if you order a custom sized mirror at 40" x 40" which is listed on our website as £30 for 20" x 20", the cost will increase. As this would qualify as a commission or a custom order, we would give you the price of your desired size before you choose to buy. The same goes for different colours, etc.
We reserve the right to change prices of our products as and when we choose.
For items that are made to order/commissions, we will advise our estimated time to make and deliver your item on receipt of your order.
If you have made a payment via PayPal and we cannot fulfill your order within an acceptable time as agreed, we will fully refund your payment.
If a deposit has been made to cover design work for a special commission, this deposit will be retained by us. We will advise the expected delivery date for special commissions when you order, and before we accept your deposit payment.
Refunds and Exchanges
One-off commissions: At the start of the design process, we usually ask for a deposit - generally 50% of the overall quoted price. This is to cover us for the time spent in design to make your unique piece and to put towards the initial cost of the materials. If you cancel your order after design has begun, we reserve the right to retain your deposit. As we may not be able to sell your finished piece to anyone else (although we reserve the right to do so if we choose), we can't offer a returns facility on special commissions. If you are unhappy with the piece in some way, please contact us so we can try to resolve the problem.
We want you to be happy with your piece. We love our work and want you to share in our enjoyment. If there's any sort of problem with your piece, we'll do everything practical and reasonable to rectify it.
If you're happy with our products and our service, please spread the word to your friends and family! If you're unhappy with anything, please let us know.

Alongside our current pieces, we also love to make bespoke items just for you. If you'd like to order a custom item (and why wouldn't you?), here's how the process works:
Either choose an existing design from our shop or provide us with a sketch of your own. If you'd like us to design something unique just for you, we'd be more than happy. Please bear in mind that we have 3 solder finishes available as well - Antique Black, Polished Silver or Polished Copper. All solder is sealed and polished with wax.
Email us at contact [!at] dibbsanddibbs.com to discuss what you'd like. Include design, sizes, colours... as much information as you can. Please also let us know your shipping address so that we can calculate an approximate shipping cost for you*.
We will get back to you as soon as we can with a price and a timescale.
When we're agreed upon the product and price, a 50% deposit is then required. Upon receipt of this, we get to work on your custom order! We accept payments via PayPal - if you would prefer to pay another way, please contact us first.
We'll keep you informed as to the progress of your piece and notify you when it's done. It can either be collected, delivered or posted, depending on the item. If it's a window or something we need to fit into your home, we'll arrange a convenient time for you and we'll fit it (this service is currently only available within the UK)
The remaining 50% is then paid and you have a beautiful, custom made piece, guaranteed to be unique to you and your home.
* Delivery costs to mainland UK addresses will vary depending on the size and value of the item. Delivery includes appropriate sturdy packing and insurance. Please be sure to read our Terms & Conditions for further information.
