MY FAVOURITE DESIGN IS SOLD OUT - WILL IT COME BACK AGAIN?

CAN I RETURN ITEMS?
You surely have a right of return on third-party products, standard size items and hats.
Excluded from this right of return are: made-to-measure clothing and any customized items, jewellery, true vintage items. If you want to return an item it has to be returned insured and at your cost. Your payment will be refunded (excluding initial shipping costs) within 30 days after your package was received and only if the items are in the condition they were sent. For further details and deadlines, please see my 'General Terms and Conditions' or my Shipping & Returns - section.
CAN I ORDER CUSTOM CLOTHING?
Special occasion? Wedding? Prom?
In case you have a special idea for a garment that you wish to order, please just contact us here or directly
via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. PRETTIE LANES is always happy to make dreams come true. However, capacities for individual orders are always limited and hence a 'first come, first served'
policy applies. Please plan wisely and ahead of time as turnaround times can vary between several weeks or regularly up to several months(!)
Please note: PRETTIE LANES does not offer reproductions on true vintage pieces. We appreciate and after all value the work of other artists/designers and the time and effort they put into creating a garment. Hence, Designer Franziska Schlupski is not willing to simply 'copy' a design from someone else as this is not the approach as an artist nor as a business woman.

Flatrate shipping means that you can buy as many items as you wish for a fixed postage. For more information, please have a look at my 'Shipping & Returns' - section.
