Returns and Refunds Policies of YokoDana Kimono
TERMS & CONDITIONS
1. BUYING SIGHT-UNSEEN:
We know how difficult it is to buy certain things without examining them in person. This is particularly so with the kinds of things we sell. We urge customers to not only look at pictures of items, but to carefully read the text descriptions which complement the pictures. Also, feel free to email questions before finalizing a web purchase from us. This helps cut down on returns and saves you and us both time and money. As we deal with one-of-a-kind specialty garments and textiles, where so much is subjective, the judgment about returns can be difficult. We welcome your opinions and input.
The return policy is not intended as an approval basis or consignment, but as a protection for new buyers. Our intention in having a return policy -- while many other vintage and antique merchants have you bought it, it's yours policies -- is to accommodate the difficulty you face when buying something without seeing it or touching it.
2. RETURN PROCEDURES:
If you do not like what you have bought, please contact us by phone or email for return authorization within 72 hours of receipt of your item; please state specifically your reasons for return(not just 'I didn't like it' but specifics please).
