FAQs


INTERNATIONAL ORDERS

At this point I do not ship orders overseas. If you have questions, or would like to pursue an order, please contact us.

HOW SECURE IS THE STORE? PAYMENT OPTIONS?
This store uses PayPal for payments (you do not need a paypal account - all major credit cards are accepted) and PayPal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to ours using Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available).
You do not need a paypal account to purchase through paypal. However, if you have a paypal account, you can use it.

REFUNDS, EXCHANGES AND RETURNS

CLOTHING:
 it's important that you love your purchase. And I hope that you are happy with it. If that is not the case,  I will exchange or credit clothing or refund the price, less shipping charges within 7 days after receiving and inspecting the returned item.
You can return or exchange an unworn, undamaged, odorless item without stains, in saleable condition with all tags attached within 7 days of receipt.
For returns, please keep the garment in the box - and away from perfume, smoke or other odors/smells, that also linger in a closet and can be transferred to items sitting in a closet.
Customer is responsible for return shipping.
Call us at 512 - 470 2553 or contact us to arrange for a return authorization.
To return an item, please package it in a hard walled box and insure it to  your comfort level. We are not responsible for lost or damaged items.
FABRICS, JEWELRY, ART, CUSTOM ORDERS, SALE ITEMS: no refunds, exchanges or credits on these items. Please, contact me at 512 - 470 2553 if you have an issue and we can work on a solution.

If you return an item for refund, the shipping charges will be deducted from the refund amount.

Please, note: I do not ship internationally right now. But will be happy to talk to you if you just "have to have" something. Please contact us for details.

SALES TAX
Sales tax is out of our hands. The website processors automatically have to charge it and submit it to the various states.

ACCURACY OF PHOTOS, WEBSITE CONTENT
Every effort is made to photograph and describe all items well. Keep in mind that colors do vary on different computer monitors.

PRIVACY
I never receive any of your encrypted payment information from the payment processors.  I only get your mailing address and e-mail. I NEVER share, rent or sell those to others. It is only used to process your order. Or to send a rare e-mail to you about MOnika Astara discount specials. You can opt out of that immediately.
