USPS Track & Confirm
We place a high priority on getting your order shipped ASAP, but please note that we can't make any guarantees as seasonal peaks, large orders, weather or other circumstances may delay shipping. Once the carrier receives the package, we have no control over the actual delivery time. With the volume that USPS delivers on any given day throughout the world, there are some packages that simply do not reach their destination within the expected timeframe. While unfortunate, we cannot provide a financial guarantee on another company's performance and we trust you will understand.
Special Delivery Instructions: If you are ordering a basket but want it shipped/delivered any time later than ASAP, please specify in your order under "Special Instructions" at checkout. Otherwise all orders will go out immediately after the 1-3 business day (non-holiday) processing window.
Shipping Chocolate: Please note that in the warm weather months of May-September Baskets a la Kimmy will make substitutions for chocolate items.
Most items can be substituted for non-chocolate items at any time by emailing Kimmy and asking for a list of substitutions for a particular basket. Please reference basket in email.
Modifying/Canceling an Order: For orders that have already been processed (wrapped and boxed up) and need to be modified, a 15% fee will be imposed. If there is anything you need to change in the basket please email me before you place an order. If an order is cancelled at any time store credit will be issued. Store credit must be used up within one year of original purchase date. If the order has already been shipped, I cannot offer store credit. All orders are final once they leave for shipping.
