Returns and Shipping


We offer free shipping on most items above $75.00

For items below $75.00, we offer a flat rate of $6.00

We usually ship same day or next day after ordering and you will be notified of the tracking number when we ship.

Certain bulky items such as furniture, and any planters and live plants are shipped using the discounted rates that we have negotiated with UPS.  You will be offered a choice of rates and speeds at checkout for these items.

We hope you love our products.  But if you don't, and you want a refund, that's ok too.

Our policy lasts 30 days. If 30 days have gone by since your purchase, then, unfortunately, we can’t offer you a refund or exchange. 

We can only give a refund if the items come back to us unused and in the same condition that you received it.   That means it must also be in the original packaging (if it came in branded packaging).

Some types of goods are exempt from being returned.   Vintage items and Live Plants are not returnable.

We are also not able to return gift cards. 

To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.  If you buy through our website and return through our website, we often don't need any further proof.

Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item.  As long as the item is in original condition, we will process your refund immediately, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within three days. 

Late or missing refunds (if applicable) 
Please allow 5 days for your credit card company to issue the refund.
