RETURN & REFUND POLICY
Returns for Gourd Art Sculptures:
If your gourd art sculpture arrives in damaged condition, please contact The Laughing Cabin within 7 days by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please attach photos of the damaged item. Most gourd art pieces will be shipped USPS Priority Mail which will include shipping insurance. Therefore, if the item is damaged in shipment, The Laughing Cabin will provide you with the shipping insurance receipt which can be used to file a shipping claim. USPS will require you to show the item in its original packaging so that it can be inspected. If a refund is issued by USPS, it will be issued directly to you. Take pictures of the item and the packaging for your records. It is the buyer’s responsibility to make a shipping insurance claim.
If the damage to your item is due to improper packaging on the part of The Laughing Cabin or the manufacturer (as determined by USPS) or due to a manufacturing defect — other than intentional aging, distress or weathering of the surface for creative purposes — please send photos of your item showing the damage to email@example.com. In some cases, you will be asked to return the item before receiving a refund. Please note that handmade items such as gourds and salvaged wood have natural dimples, markings and characteristics that would NOT be considered manufacturer’s defects. If we can determine that the damage is indeed caused by a manufacturer’s defect, we will refund your entire purchase including shipping within 3-5 business days according to the method of payment you used to make the purchase. You must submit a refund claim by e-mail within 30 days of the purchase of your item — including photos of the item and the area of defect. After 30 days, no refunds of any kind will be issued. This includes custom orders.
The Laughing Cabin cannot take responsibility for color variations that occur when an item is viewed through a mobile device or computer monitor. We will make the best effort to describe the item and its colors and provide photographs that are a good-faith representation of the item’s color, measurements, etc.
The gourd art sculptures and wooden signs include a warning in the item description and/or in the care instructions that they should not be exposed to direct sun or rain. Absolutely NO REFUNDS will be issued in the event of sun, water, rain or damage caused by exposure to the elements.
