Terms of Sale + Shipping Info

Who is day-lab.com?

Hello!
day-lab was launched in February 2005 by me, Amy Shutt.


day-lab.com is a one woman show (yes, I am responsible for every aspect of day-lab.com), which is run out of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. day-lab is my full time job, as full as it can be, as I also work as a Photo Editor for a local photographer. I try very hard to fill all the roles required at day-lab.com by putting 200% of myself into day-lab.com each and every day. I do hope you enjoy the products and services as much as I enjoy finding and making the products available to you (and getting them out to you).

day-lab.com is a very small independent boutique style website offering unique gifts and wares, both new and vintage. day-lab's stock on hand, shipping times, and Terms of Service reflect the unique nature of this small one woman business.

Below you will find day-lab's Terms of Service, Shipping and Transit info. Read through it! It is important, I promise!

If you have any questions, please contact me at info@day-lab.com

USPS Delivery Confirmation Notification

-When domestic shipping labels are prepared online and printed, customers will receive an email from Paypal letting you know. This email will include your USPS Delivery Confirmation Number.

-USPS provides a DELIVERY CONFIRMATION service, not an actual TRACKING number. It shows when the label was printed and when the item was delivered at its final destination.

-If you have not received your package within 14 business days after you have received a shipping confirmation email from Paypal, send an email to info@day-lab.com letting us know.



Order Status Requests

-If, at any time, you would like to know the status of your order please email that request to info@day-lab.com

-Please include your name, the date your order was placed, your paypal email, contact email (if different), and items ordered in the body of the email.



Please Be Patient and Kind

-Although I always strive to ship according to the above statements please keep in mind that this business is run by one person and shipping times can be longer than quoted above. If you have any questions regarding the projected shipping day of your order (before or after you place an order), you need to email info@day-lab.com and we will let you know.

I encourage customer inquiries! Please email ANY questions you may have.

-Please read the Auto Responder Email that you will receive from day-lab once you place an order as well as the NEWS section on the day-lab website-this is how we communicate important notices to customers.



Back Ordered/Out of Stock Items

-If your order includes a listed back ordered item or an item that takes a few extra days to ship, the entire order will ship together once all items are ready to go. If you want part of your order to ship immediately, and prefer to have the back ordered pieces ship later-please order them separately.

-If your order includes an out of stock item, the rest of the order will ship and you will be refunded for the out of stock (or, if possible, a replacement can be sent). Refunds are processed once monthly (at the begining of each month for the pervious month).



A Note on Vintage Items + Jewelry Repair

Many items at day-lab are Vintage, meaning they were produced roughly between the 1930s and 1980s.

Jewelry items that are received broken or in need of a little repair/chain or hardware replacement etc. can always be mended or replaced! Please keep in mind that most dead stock has been stored away for years in a state of stagnation and may be in need of a little tweaking, which I am always happy to provide a day after your order is received or 6 months down the road. The same goes for vintage, previously worn, jewelry items. This is no way an indication of poor quality, and is only an indication of stagnant time in storage or normal wear and tear, which can be expected of older jewelry pieces. Just send me an email explaining what it is that needs updating or fixing and, if possible, we can work something out in order to make that happen.

Vintage items found at day-lab.com come in the form of dead stock (items never circulated), estate sale finds, and antique shop and fair finds. I do my best to research the items and find out as much as possible about them. All information that is known about Vintage items is meticulously listed in the description (this also includes any dirt, defects, scratches, paint loss etc.).

I describe all vintage items as accurately as possible through the photographs and the descriptions. All vintage items are sold AS IS, and all sales of these items are final. Ask any questions you may have before purchasing.



Returns, Exchanges and Refunds

-ALL SALES ARE FINAL.

Please ask any and all questions before you place an order!

day-lab does not grant refunds, credits or exchanges. *Refunds granted only on orders with out of stock items*

-Jewelry items that are received broken or in need of a little repair/chain or hardware replacement etc. can always be mended or replaced. Please email info@day-lab.com for further info.

-If there is a problem with your order, please email info @day-lab.com immediately (within 48 hours from order delivery) and any situations deemed as reasonable and within the Terms of Sale of day-lab.com will be rectified.

-Shipping fees are nonrefundable.

-If you receive an incorrect item in your order, email us immediately for further instruction: info@day-lab.com.

-Please note: Prices are subject to change at any time without any given notice and we retain the right to change the price of any items at any time without any given notice.

-Absolutely no unauthorized returns will be accepted by day-lab. All requests for a return approval must first be emailed to info@day-lab.com.

-Please be sure you understand and are comfortable with the Returns, Exchanges and Refunds policy stated above before placing an order.



Order Cancellation Policy

-Once an order has been placed, it can only be canceled within the first 12 hours from the time it has been placed.

-Cancellations granted after this time frame are subject to a 30% processing/restocking fee.

-day-lab reserves the right to cancel any order at any time for any reason seen as appropriate.



Transit and Insurance Info IMPORTANT

-Once an order is given to a USPS carrier the item becomes that carrier's responsibility and day-lab is no longer liable.

-Some DOMESTIC orders are shipped insured (which is determined on a order by order basis and does not include all orders).

-Please visit the USPS Insurance Info page for detailed information on this service by clicking this link: USPS Insurance

-A package must be missing for 21 days to be considered lost.

-Most insured orders need to be signed for upon delivery (usually orders insured for a dollar amount over $49.00). It is the customer's responsibility to follow through in obtaining their package, should they not be available to sign for it at the time of delivery.

-PLEASE NOTE THESE EXCEPTIONS:

-Insurance can not cover lost packages due to an incorrect address provided at checkout. PLEASE CHECK THE ADDRESS YOUR ORDER IS BEING SHIPPED TO AT CHECKOUT AND AGAIN IN THE EMAILED RECEIPT! If you find it is incorrect or would like to double check the address with day-lab, please email info@day-lab.com immediately. day-lab is not responsible for the loss of these packages and will not provide replacements or refunds for these lost packages.

-If a Delivery confirmation number shows your package as being delivered to your zip code, but you still haven't received it, a claim can not be filed. Please contact your post office supervisor with the Delivery Confirmation number so they can proceed in an investigation.

-If you enter a wrong address at checkout and the package is sent back to us we will ship it out to you as soon as a correct address is established by the customer (extra shipping fees will be required b/f re-shipment).
