We want you to be happy with your purchase, but if you are not, we gladly accept most returns (exceptions noted below) within 15 days of purchase or delivery, in original packaging, free of defect, at the original purchase price, using the original method of payment.

A receipt is required for all returns and exchanges. 

If more than 15 days have elapsed since your purchase, unfortunately we cannot offer you a refund or exchange. All clearance and sale items are sold as-is and final sale. As a small business, profits from sales are typically used to purchase new inventory, or replace inventory, within the same month. Our policy helps us manage cash flow, and reduce unexpected inventory during slow or down periods.

Returns made in-store are processed immediately, unless they are cash returns over the amount of $150. Cash returns over $150 are mailed to guests via check within 48 hours of a return. This is simply because we do not keep much cash in house.

Online Orders: All orders are inspected for quality prior to shipping. We photograph all items before they are packaged, and document how they are packaged as part of our team quality assurance process. We understand that boxes may arrive damaged. If this happens, please contact us via phone at 410.268.7500.

Exceptions to our policy. The following items are considered, “final sale.”

  • All food & beverage
  • Seasonal & holiday-specific merchandise
  • Personal care items (soaps, lotions, and bath tools)
  • Home Fragrance (candles, diffusers, room & linen sprays)
  • Gift cards
  • Custom & special orders such as furniture, rugs, and table linen

Product Defect

  • In the unlikely event a defect occurs, we will work with you, based on the manufacturer’s warranty for up to 30 days after the date of purchase.
  • In the event that a product has been used in a way that causes a defect, we are unable to accept a return. An example of this includes using abrasive cleaners or metals in nonstick pans or heating a pan to the point that the finish cracks, or putting a baking pan in the dishwasher.
