If you would like to return one of your purchases, you can do so within 14 days of receiving your shipment. You should contact us prior to shipping your item back. Please note that the customer will be responsible for returning the item to the Historic Sites Association at their own expense. A refund will only be issued once the item is received and inspected.

The following item categories are final sale only and not eligible for refund: sale items, earrings, and food. If you received a damaged or incorrect item, please see the “damages” section below.
Orders will ship from the Historic Sites Association Warehouse within 1-3 business days. We ensure your items are packaged securely to arrive to you in pristine condition, however, we do use re-purposed packaging materials whenever possible to reduce waste. We try our best to apply accurate shipping calculations at checkout, but in the event of a significant overcharge, you will be refunded the difference.

We will use this information to complete purchases that you choose to make on other websites or applications that also use Stripe Checkout, but only with your permission. We may also share your contact information, but not your card information, with merchants as part of your purchases. We will not share this information with other third parties except as a necessary part of providing our Website and Services. You should carefully review merchants’ privacy policies to better understand how each uses your information.”
