RETURNS & EXCHANGES

Did something not quite work out? No problem!

In-store Exchanges
To exchange your purchase, visit us in-store during shop hours. To be eligible for an exchange or store credit, the item must be in the same condition that it was received in. Please note our exchange policy lasts seven days. If seven days have past since your purchase, unfortunately we cannot offer an exchange or store credit. This is due the nature of consignment. For the same reason, we do not issue refunds. To complete your exchange, we require that the item still has its original store tags, and a receipt or proof of purchase.

If your purchase was a vintage or pre-owned item, and is ineligible for an exchange, we are happy to see if we can consign it for you.

Sale items are final sale. Socks, items removed from their original packaging (art prints, greeting cards, etc.), and select special collection items, are ineligible for exchanges.

Online Exchanges
At this time, purchases made online can be exchanged in-store only. Sale items are final sale.
