Ordering from our site means that you have read, and agree to, the following policies. VA residents will be charged sales tax.

Estimated Shipping Times

PRIORITY MAIL: We understand you want your items ASAP, so we ship via USPS Priority (faster, trackable, insured) within 2 business days (M-F, 9 – 5) – except for tiny items under $10, such as magnets, which are sent First Class.
We will send you a tracking number for Priority Items. Your package should arrive in 1 to 3 business days after we ship. See the Estimated Shipping Times map on this page for estimated arrival times. Once your package is in the hands of the USPS, please note that we can’t make it “hurry up and get there”, especially during busy holiday seasons, it is in the hands of the United States Postal Service for delivery.
Shipping Costs: the fee covers postage, insurance, containers, packing materials, transport, and time spent preparing your items for shipping. We recycle materials whenever possible to keep costs down and to be kind to our planet.
U.S. SHIPPING ONLY: We only ship to U.S. addresses.
DAMAGE: In the unlikely event of damage, take photos of the damaged box BEFORE opening it! Then take photos of any damage to the items inside the package. Keep the box, packing material, and damaged items until your claim is processed! The items may need to be inspected. Click link to FILE USPS CLAIM for a lost or damaged item.
RETURNS: Returns may be made within 7 days of delivery of your package, provided the item is in NEW condition*. Send us an email, let us know what the issue is and when to expect the return. Return shipping is buyer’s responsibility. EDA will refund original purchase price (and original shipping) when the item is received in NEW condition. Please note the following:
1. Commissioned pieces are NOT returnable nor refundable, due to their personal nature.
2. We will not accept returns on items that are damaged due to improper care! We include care instructions for items when we ship. Care instructions are also listed in the FAQs section of our site and in item descriptions!
If you’d like Dawn to create a custom piece specific to your favorite colors or subject matter, she will be happy to assist you! Due to their personal nature, custom orders are NOT returnable, nor refundable.
