We do our best, but it has been known for  us to make a mistake with a price or description of a product or promotion and provide the wrong information.  If we discover an error we will tell you as soon as we can and give you the option of reconfirming your order (at the correct price) or cancelling it.  Unfortunately, if you are unable to contact you we will treat the order as cancelled. If you decide to cancel and you have paid, we will refund you in full. 

Please note, all prices include VAT (where applicable).

Delivery

Once you have concluded your order, please allow approximately 14 days for delivery of your item.  Please note that this is an estimate and your order will be dispatched as soon as possible, if it is in stock this could be within 2 days. 

We work hard to try to deliver items quickly as we know that you are eagerly waiting for them, but sometimes there are delays, i.e. due to postal or carrier delays, logistics or bad weather.  We will try and keep you informed as much as possible and we will let you know when your item has been dispatched.  If you require more information regarding your item then please get in touch with Customer Care  bessiemaevintageshop@gmail.com

Some items cannot be returned or a refund given, i.e. earrings, pierced jewellery or personal items such as swim wear, undergarments and gift cards. 

Please note, this does not affect your statutory rights.

Promo Codes

On occasions, we may make a Promo Code available to you so that you can use it to reduce the price of specific products.  Remember, it is always up to you to enter the correct Promo Code at the checkout!  Each Promo Code has its own terms, which will be made clear to you at the time of issue to you, (i.e. what product/s single multiple use, when it can be used, any deadlines, etc). 

Unless you are told otherwise, Promo Codes cannot be used to buy any other product or to buy Bessie Mae Vintage Gift Vouchers. 

If you are given a unique Promo Code, that is meant just for you (i.e. a student Promo Code) please keep it secret and do not let anyone else use or share it or abuse it (i.e. do not post it to social media). If we believe that a Promo Code has been misused in any way (i.e. selling it or sharing it with others), we will cancel your Promo Code and or suspend or close your account without telling you.   We do not like to do this but if Promo Codes cannot work to benefit the correct people because someone or something is using them unfairly, (i.e. fraud, tampering, technical errors or anything else that is beyond our control) that affect the running or fairness of the Promo Code, we will cancel, modify or suspend the Promo Code. 

Gift Vouchers

If you are lucky to receive a Bessie Mae Vintage Gift Voucher, please keep it safe.  If you are the generous soul that is buying one for someone else, please make sure that you get their e-mail address correct!  If you get this incorrect and the Gift Voucher is e-mailed to someone else who then uses it, unfortunately we are unable to do anything to help. Please, please double check the e-mail address is correct before buying the Gift Voucher. 

Remember, spam filters can send our e-mails into junk or spam folders.  So, if you have not been thanked for your generosity, it may be worth giving them the heads up that something fabulous may be waiting for them in their junk or spam folder.
