Frequently Asked Questions

What are your shipping times like?

Shipping will be processed as soon as possible. Orders placed before 2:30pm CST on Monday - Friday (excluding snails) should be shipped out on the same day. Please note that I work a 12a-8a night shift job, so I will be working on orders in the evening. Orders containing snails will only be shipped on Monday or Wednesday and will require a 24-hour fast before shipping.

Do you offer a return policy?

On some items we have a 30-day return policy, which means you have 30 days after receiving your item to request a return. To be eligible for a return, your item must be in the same condition that you received it, unworn or unused, with tags, and in its original packaging. You’ll also need the receipt or proof of purchase.

If your return is accepted, we’ll send you a return shipping label, as well as instructions on how and where to send your package. Items sent back to us without first requesting a return will not be accepted. Once we’ve received and inspected your return, we will notify you if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you’ll be automatically refunded on your original payment method within 10 business days.
