Postage & Packing is FREE for all customers anywhere in the UK. This applies to items purchased from my online shop and also to any items made to order.

Each item is placed in a clear, protective cellophane bag and sent in a padded envelope.
All my handmade products are manufactured in a smoke-free, pet-free environment.
Many of my products are not suitable for children under 36 months due to small parts and carry a warning label to that effect on the back.
Please note: All products for sale in the online shop are "One-off" or "One of a kind" items and the exact product cannot therefore be replicated. However, if customers wish to place an order for a similar product, they are more than welcome to do so.
Every item in the online shop is marked with its own price. Prices for items made to order are displayed on the appropriate pages. All prices are displayed in pound sterling. I reserve the right to change the price of any item without prior notice. This does not apply to any item already ordered or going through the process of being purchased.
You can pay securely at the online shop by credit card. All items are processed by PayPal who protect your financial information with industry leading security and fraud prevention systems. None of the details you submit to PayPal are revealed to me or stored on my system.
For items made to order (only), you can pay by cheque made payable to Melissa Lawrence. Your cheque should be sent at the same time as your order. No orders can be dispatched until full payment has been received.

Confirmation Of Purchases And Orders
A confirmation of your purchase from the online shop or your customised order will be emailed to you as soon after receipt as possible.
Products purchased from the online shop will usually be dispatched within 3-5 days but I will always try to dispatch more quickly especially if you need your item by a specific date. Items made to order may take longer to be dispatched as they have to be designed and constructed from scratch but you should expect to receive them within 28 days of ordering. If you have a specific date by which you require a made to order item, please make this very clear when you contact me.
Confirmation Of Dispatch
Once your item(s) have been dispatched, you will receive an email to let you know that your order is on its way. Please ensure that your contact details are correct as I cannot be held responsible for non/late delivery due to incomplete information. All goods remain the property of Melissa Lawrence until they come into your possession or the possession of your proxy.
Returns And Refunds
If your order is not as expected or there are items missing, please contact me immediately. If for any reason you are unhappy with any of your purchases, you may return any item within 14 days for a full refund including the original postage costs. Items should be returned in a fully re-saleable condition.
The full cost of returning unwanted items is the customer's responsibility and is non-refundable. Customers are strongly advised to obtain proof of posting as I cannot be held responsible for any returned items that are lost or damaged in transit.
Please note: The cost of any item made to order cannot be refunded unless the item is faulty.
If you wish to request a return, please email me via the Contact page stating your order details, the item(s) you wish to return, your name and address and the reason(s) for your return. Once your return request has been accepted, you may return the goods. Refunds will be made without undue delay providing all the above conditions have been fully met. This refund policy does not affect your statutory rights.
Text and images may not be copied from this website without the express prior permission of Melissa Lawrence. Any infringement of my copyright will be taken very seriously indeed.
I will never disclose any customer's contact details to any third party other than Royal Mail for the delivery of goods. Contact information from customer forms either in electronic or paper format will only ever be used to send order details and information to Melissa Lawrence customers and/or for sending out Melissa Lawrence marketing communications where I have been requested by the recipient to do so.
