Placing an Order with Us
Our Mission: …is to provide personalized service, quality hand-crafted products, and outstanding decor that brings joy and imagination of the outdoors to homes and gardens in the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
Hours of Operation: Regular business hours are 10am to 4pm PST Monday through Friday. We do not have a showroom at our facility, but if you are in the area and would like to visit our warehouse, we will do our best to accommodate you. Please call 360.573.1055 or toll-free 888.995.0648 to make an appointment.
Our Products: …are hand-crafted with pride from high-grade steel, and individually rusted by hand for that endearing shabby chic look. Our main line features a narrow tab on the bottom with holes for screws or nails for attachment to a fence post, tree branch, bird feeder, windowsill, even a door frame, fireplace mantel, or a bookshelf—wherever one desires a touch of personality and whimsy in their garden or home. We also design yard stakes, trellises, wind spinners, and many more lines to meet various retail demands.
Returns/Exchanges/Refunds: Consistency in product finish and color is our goal. However, each item is unique and natural variance may occur due to the hand-crafted nature of our manufacturing process. You have 7 days from the receipt of shipment to report an invoice discrepancy or request a return or refund for any item in original unused condition.
Returns made after 7 days are at the discretion of Elegant Garden Design, Inc., and if accepted, will incur shipping cost and a 15% re-stocking fee. We also reserve the right to require full payment of your order if discrepancies are not reported within 7 days of receipt of shipment.
We recommend return shipping using UPS or FedEx with insurance and signature required. We are not responsible for lost or stolen articles.
If an item is returned to us due to a customs related issue, you may be billed an additional 20% restocking fee. Your credit card will also be charged if we incur additional shipping costs in retrieving your package. If your package is returned to us because of customs issues you will be credited for the merchandise, minus the fees described above, if the package is returned to us in reasonable condition.
