RETURNS, EXCHANGES, SHIPPING, PRIVACY, SECURITY, TERMS of SERVICE, and CONTACT DETAILS

RETURNS

Please contact us as soon as possible after receiving your purchase if you are unhappy with the item that you receive.

Please understand that we can only provide a refund or exchange if we have made a mistake (i.e., packed the wrong item) or if we agree that the item received is not as described (i.e., contains a fault or a defect outside of the character consistent with being truly handmade, and sometimes from recycled or vintage materials).

Once a return has been accepted, please allow sufficient time for your refund to be processed. This can take up to 14 days depending on your method of payment and financial institution.

Please mail returns to Kitty Came Home, 10 Gundagai Street, Goolwa, South Australia 5214.

You are responsible for the return shipping costs up until we receive the item, but please keep your receipts as proof of mailing in case the item does not arrive. If using Australia Post (recommended), please provide us with the tracking number. Upon receiving your return, if we agree that we or the item are at fault, we will refund your shipping costs upon presentation of your shipping/postage receipt.

EXCHANGES

We may accept exchanges where you have contacted us within seven days of delivery confirmation, and only where the item has not been used or damaged. You are responsible for all postage or shipping fees associated with any exchange.

Please return any product to be exchanged to Kitty Came Home, 10 Gundagai Street, Goolwa, South Australia 5214.

Please consider tracking & insurance in case we do not receive your item.

SHIPPING

We will post your order within 2 working days after payment has been cleared or let you know if a longer time period may be expected.

Unless otherwise agreed, we use standard Australia Post within Australia (includes free tracking), and Australia Post airmail for overseas purchases (tracking is available upon request).

STANDARD DELIVERY WITHIN AUSTRALIA usually takes 2-6 working days. If your item has not arrived after 14 days from dispatch, please notify us.

INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY can take 7-14 working days, and then passing customs in your country may cause longer delivery times.

Express post (within Australia) is an option upon request.

We accept no responsibility for items that go missing after we have dispatched them. If you require insurance please let us know before you make your payment so that we can tell you how much extra it will cost.

Re INTERNATIONAL PURCHASES: please note that we have no control over and cannot be held responsible for any customs fees or other duties which may be applied to your order by officials in your country. If you have any questions, please check with your local customs organisation prior to finalising your purchase.

Re INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMS FORMS: we present the true value of an item on customs forms, and describe the packaged items correctly as ‘merchandise’ and ‘PVC and fabric wallet’ (for example).
