Please notify us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org stating item details and whether you would like a refund or exchange.
Important - Sale items and lay-bys are final - no exchange or refund is offered.
Can I return/exchange a sale item?
Items purchased in our 'sale' section are final - no exchange or refund is offered. Of course, if your item is faulty, please see below.
What happens if my item is faulty?
If you believe your item is faulty, you must contact us as soon as possible describing the fault. We will endeavour to offer a repair, exchange or refund if we deem the item to be faulty. This is governed by Australian consumer law. If we require the goods be returned for inspection, this must be done within 10 days of contacting us.
Please note, that many of the items on this website are vintage, antique, and/or handmade. We have stated this clearly in our product descriptions and as such, signs of wear, small marks, and inconsistencies are not considered faults on these items. If you like things shiny, manufactured by machinery, and completely perfect then this may not be the best place for you.
Shipping delays or damages
What if my order is delayed or damaged during shipping?
Unfortunately accidents do happen. If there is a delay with your order due to inclement weather, we will do our best to notify you. Your tracking number also includes information on how to contact the shipping carrier.
All of our products are carefully packaged to prevent breakage in transit. If your order is damaged during shipping, please photograph the inside and outside of the box and keep all contents and packaging for insurance claim purposes. Please contact us within 3 days of the arrival of your package for instructions.
Sage and Clare is in no way responsible for any delays in shipping, damages in transit, packages not received, arrival of your order at the wrong location due to incorrect delivery address or international customs issues.
