SHIPPING THE SAND STORE ships by ground, either UPS or USPS, whichever is least expensive, and that estimate is reflected in our stated shipping rates. Many of our pieces are heavy, large or glass, so shipping fees unfortunately will reflect that. Rest assured that we do not make any profit on shipping.
Customarily we ship by ground, but if you have an urgent need for an item, we can add expedited shipping and get it to you faster.
NOTE: Our wreaths are shipped in specialty boxes that do not allow for adding another item in the same package. However, whenever possible, we will combine multiple items to save you shipping charges, but only if payment is sent for all items in one transaction.
GIFT SHIPPING -- We are happy to ship a gift direct to the recipient on your behalf, and will include a gift card from you if you wish. (Please specify what you want the card to read in the "Note to Seller" area during checkout.)
PAYPAL -- We process all orders through PayPal, which ensures your safety in all transactions. Through PayPal I can accept all major credit cards and debit transactions, and I never see your confidential credit card information. You do not need a PayPal account to pay via PayPal. Here is a link to assist you in completing a PayPal payment: http://www.etsy.com/help_guide_checkout.php. (Just copy and paste this link into your browser.)
Please be sure that your Etsy address matches your PayPal shipping address so your orders will not be delayed.
When you place an order with us, we need to either receive payment or communication from you within 24 hours, or we will have to cancel your order and re-list that item.
TIMELY ORDERS -- Some of our items are in stock, others are made upon receipt of an order. As soon as we receive your order, we will contact you by email with an estimated shipping date. If you have a particular deadline, please let us know and we'll advise you whether we can commit to your timeframe. Customarily we ship UPS ground or USPS, depending on size and weight, but if you have an urgent need for an item and it is in stock, we can add expedited shipping and get it to you faster.
TAX -- For Florida State residents only, we must charge a sales tax of 6%. This will be added to your PayPal invoice.
Returns & exchanges
Refunds and Exchanges • REFUNDS -- We want you to delighted with your purchase and be 100 percent satisfied. Please contact us within 7 days of receipt to authorize your return, and we'll give you a return authorization number and help you with any packaging questions.
Products need to be in resellable condition, in our original protective packaging, and shipped back at buyer's expense. Your PayPal refund will be processed upon receipt of your items in resellable condition.
DAMAGE -- Please notify us of any damage within 7 days of receipt. We will ask you to photograph the damage; this is required during the claims process. Together we'll decide on the best course of action regarding replacement/refund. Please note that the shipping process can sometimes dislodge a piece or two of shell or sea glass no matter how much we bubble-wrap the item. This is not "damage." Small repairs can be made with a household hot-glue gun.
TIMING -- Returns and damaged goods must be received back to us within 2 weeks of your receipt. Because most of our products are originals and are not kept in inventory, returns after 2 weeks cannot be accommodated.
CUSTOM ORDERS -- By their very nature, custom orders are not returnable. We will work with you beforehand in detail to make sure you are happy with what we are creating for you before it's created. We will email photos of the custom work before shipping.
FEEDBACK -- We are committed to the satisfaction of our buyers & strive to provide the highest level of service and support. We love positive feedback & will leave it automatically for everyone that leaves it for us. Please contact us with any concerns before leaving online feedback. In the unlikely event there is a problem with your order, we will be eager to work with you to resolve the matter.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: CUSTOM ORDERS -- We love to make unique, one-of-a-kind items, so we welcome all inquiries, comments and ideas. Please contact us with any special requests, and we will try our best to accommodate you. Custom orders cannot be returned, but rest assured, we will work with you beforehand in detail to make sure we are both in agreement with what we are creating before we proceed. Once all your questions have been addressed and we are in agreement on all aspects of the design, materials and timeline -- in writing -- we will require half prepayment to move forward and purchase items for your order that we do not have in stock and would not be able to sell to someone else.
WEDDINGS -- Some of our items are appropriate for wedding favors and table decor; we are happy to work with you on details to help you have the wedding of your dreams. Please give us plenty of lead time!
MATERIALS -- We use high-quality, screened and dried sand in all our work, and real palm tree fronds and seed pod casings from the palm tree, are treated with insecticide, clear-coated and then assembled onto a metal wreath form frame. The main themed embellishments on the wreath are made with sand. Added to our pieces are additional genuine shells, collected along the Southwest Coast of Florida.
PLEASE NOTE – THE SAND STORE pieces are all created by hand with sand along with the one-of-a-kind seashells and sea life that are added to our pieces, so no two items are precisely identical in nature, and that’s the beauty of original seashore products. Care is taken to replicate in detail the photos used to illustrate our items using the same elements whenever possible. Shell varieties in size and color and may differ slightly due to availability at the time of your purchase, but the overall design of the piece will always be consistent with the photo. Please allow for these slight variations.
