THE LITTLE CRAFT SHACK TERMS AND CONDITIONS
TERMS OF SALE
This website, http://www.thelittlecraftshack.com, is owned and operated by Loz Walters and Katya Benedetto (“we”, “us”, “our”).
You can only buy products from our online shop if you are aged 18 or older.
1 How it works
1.1 Our website is a platform on which artists and crafters selected by us (the “Artists”) can advertise and sell their products.
1.2 We do not ourselves make any of the products on our website but rather we are agents for the Artists. This means that we promote and offer for sale products made by Artists on our website. If you purchase products on the website the sales contract in respect of these products shall be between you and the Artist and we shall not be a party.
1.3 As we are acting as an agent rather than a seller, we are not responsible for the products offered for sale on the website, nor do we hold in stock any of these products. Therefore, we cannot promise that the products you buy through the website will be of satisfactory quality and as far as the law will permit, we exclude liability for such products. This does not mean you have no rights if there is a problem with the products though, if an issue arises, you can contact the relevant Artist directly and they will assist you.
2 These Terms
2.1 These terms and conditions will apply to any orders which you place on our website. In addition, some of our Artists may have additional terms and conditions (shown on our website in the product description) which apply specifically to their products.
2.2 If there is any inconsistency or conflict between these terms and the terms presented by an Artist, these terms shall apply.
2.3 By placing an order, you will be deemed to have accepted these Terms. Please read them carefully.
3 The Products
3.1 The images of the products on our website are illustrative only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your products may vary slightly from those images.
3.2 The products are supplied for domestic and private use only. You agree not to use the products for any commercial, business or re-sale purposes.
4 How to buy
4.1 To place an order for products, you should take the following steps:
- Step 1 – Add your selected product to the online shopping cart;
- Step 2 – Select your chosen delivery method and payment method from the options presented;
- Step 3 – Provide your delivery and payment information when requested; and
- Step 4 - Submit your order.
4.2 Up until the point at which you place your order, you can review it and make changes to it. We would recommend that you take the time to review your order before submitting it.
4.3 If you place your order on a Saturday, Sunday or bank holiday, the order will be processed and confirmed no later than the following business day in the UK.
4.4 Your order will not be accepted until you have paid for the products in full and cleared funds and you have received an email confirming that the order is accepted (“Order Confirmation Email”). It is at this point that a binding contract between you and the Artist is formed for the sale and purchase of the products. If, following receipt of an Order Confirmation Email, the order cannot for any reason be fulfilled, this is a matter as between you and the Artist. However, we will refund any payment you have made. The contract shall be in English and will include these Terms.
4.5 Products are subject to availability and whilst we will try our best to ensure the website only displays products which are in stock, this can change and so there may be circumstances where a product you have ordered is unavailable. We will let you know if this is the case and will refund any payment you have made for the unavailable products.
5 Price and Delivery Charges
5.1 The prices of the products will be as shown on our website in British Pounds Sterling (GBP) and including any applicable VAT. The prices may change from time to time but this will not affect any order you have placed and which has been accepted by us.
5.2 The prices exclude delivery charges. The delivery options may vary between Artists and details of these options and the charges can be found on our website at pre-checkout. Any delivery times or lead times quoted are in working days.
5.3 We will make every effort to ensure that the correct prices are displayed on our website. However, if it is apparent that a product has been given the wrong price, please let the Artist know. It is the responsibility of the Artist to ensure their products are displayed with the correct price. If you have ordered a product which has been incorrectly priced:
5.3.1 where the product’s actual price is less than the price shown on our website, we will charge the lower amount when dispatching the products to you; and
5.3.2 where the product’s actual price is more than the price shown on our website, you can either cancel the order and receive a full refund if you have already paid or to continue to purchase the product once the price has been corrected. If the Artist is unable to contact you using the contact details you provide during the order process, the Artist will treat the order as cancelled and notify you to this effect by email, if possible.
6 How to Pay
6.1 You can pay for products using a debit or credit card or PayPal. We will process payment on behalf of the relevant Artist and you will not pay the Artist directly.
6.2 If you are paying by debit or credit card, we can accept MasterCard, Visa Credit, Visa Debit and American Express.
7 Discount and Promotion Codes
7.1 From time to time, there may be special promotions (such as discounts or offers) on certain products shown on our website. We have the right to withdraw such promotions at any time and they may be subject to time restrictions, limits on availability and other terms and conditions.
7.2 To avoid disappointment, please ensure you check the terms and conditions for a promotional offer before trying to redeem it, in particular, we may offer different promotions for different Artists.
7.3 If a promotion we are running involves use of a promotion code, such codes shall only be valid for one transaction and once the code is used it will be deactivated and will be no longer valid.
7.4 Promotions cannot be added to an order after the order is confirmed, therefore you must ensure that the code is registered before you confirm and pay for the products.
7.5 We are not responsible for promotions related to products on external websites or other media. Promotions on our website can only be redeemed where such promotions are published through The Little Craft Shack.
7.6 We reserve the right to withdraw a promotion or promotional code at any time.

9 No International Delivery
9.1 Unfortunately, we do not currently deliver to addresses outside mainland UK.
9.2 You may place an order for products from outside the UK, but this order must be for delivery to an address in the UK.

Returning the unwanted product

If on inspection of any products which you return, we (or the Artist) believes that the goods are damaged or their value has been diminished as a result of your handling of the goods beyond what would have been necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods then we may deduct an amount equal to the damage or diminishment in value from the refund owed to you.
12.1 If you cancel your order in accordance with these terms and conditions, you will receive a full refund of the price you paid for the goods and any standard delivery charges you paid for in the order (you must pay for the return costs) except in the circumstances described in clause 11.11.
