Shipping and Returns Info

Returns Policy
Unless you have purchased a discounted item, if for any reason you are not happy with your item you are welcome to return it to us for a Stitch Boutique Limited credit to use to purchase something else from our store (excluding gift cards). The amount of this credit will be less any shipping paid with your order and is valid for six months from the date of issue. If you are wanting to purchase the same item in a different size or colour we will do our best to exchange the item, however as we have a high sell out rate this will depend entirely on stock availability. If you do wish to discuss the possibility of an exchange rather than a credit, please email us at hello@stitchboutique.co.nz.
All discounted items are ineligible to be returned or exchanged.
Conditions
If the item is eligible for return, you have 10 working days from the date you received your order to return any eligible item back to us. Returns are your responsibility until they reach our store, so we recommend using a tracked courier to ensure safe delivery.
Tags must be attached to the item and the item must be unworn, unwashed, clean and odor free.
How to return an item
Package up the item that you wish to return to us together with your invoice or a copy of your invoice and a note stating the reason for the return and address it to:
Stitch Boutique Limited
105 Main Street
Greytown 5712
NEW ZEALAND
Warranty Policy
You are covered for 90 days after the original purchase date if there is a defect, fault or failure due to the manufacturing process of any item. Unfortunately we cannot cover a fault or damage caused by wear and tear, improper use or accident.
We will adhere to the Consumer Guarantees Act 1993 and the Fair Trading Act 1986, which each provide consumers with certain rights and protections. 
If the item is under warranty the following steps will apply.
- If possible the item will be repaired to the standard of the manufacturer free of charge.
- If we are unable to repair the item, we will replace it with the same item.
- If no replacement item is available we will issue a store credit or a refund according to your choice.
- We will credit you the cost of handling and delivery. 
Shipping
We ship within New Zealand using Go Sweet Spot, who offer a number of different courier services throughout New Zealand, giving us more options to get your item to you faster.  Except for rural deliveries, they require your signature when they deliver your item to you, which gives us all a bit of extra security and peace of mind. 
At this stage we are unable to offer international shipping, but we do hope to be able to provide this service in the future.
Orders are processed when credit card authorisation and/or bank deposit has cleared. Orders shipped via Go Sweet Spot typically arrive within 3-5 working days after you have received notification of shipment via email (Monday to Friday, not including weekends & holidays). If you just cannot wait that long please contact us to discuss overnight delivery, but please be aware that it will cost more for shipping. Please note that during the Winter months our physical store is closed on Tuesdays so any orders placed between Monday afternoon and Tuesday evening will not be shipped until the Wednesday. 
Subject to the above, we will use our best endeavours to dispatch your order within 24 hours of the order being placed. When your order is dispatched you will receive confirmation and tracking details via email. 

We charge a flat rate of $7.00 within New Zealand for standard shipping and $9.00 for rural shipping, subject to some exceptions as below.
Shipping will be free within New Zealand on orders over $150.00. Deliveries to the Outer Islands (Chatham Island, Stewart Island, Kawau Island, Waiheke Island, Matakana Island, Great Barrier Island and d'Urville Island) will incur additional costs (which we will arrange with you).
Please note: If payment method is by bank transfer the item(s) will be shipped directly after the deposit has cleared.
