**** Welcome to Gifts with Charm ****
We have an extensive selection of Italian charms, charm accessories, sterling silver jewelry and hand crocheted afghans... and we have also added a great choice of shoe charms, so sit back and enjoy browsing our store. Thank you for visiting and we hope that you will consider shopping with us.
Please read through the rest of the information on this page. There have been a few changes and we want to make sure that our buyers are aware of them.
!!!! IMPORTANT NOTICE !!!!
We will be out of town from October 16th through October 22nd and will NOT be able to process orders or ship them until October 23rd.
We will also be out of the country from October 31st through November 12th so orders will NOT be processed or shipped during this period.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and we thank you for your patience and understanding.
Orders will generally take from one week to 10 days to arrive, and can take much longer during peak holiday shipping periods. Please take this into consideration when placing an order. If you MUST HAVE an order sooner, we can ship using other methods, but the cost of shipping would be MUCH higher. We cannot be responsible if the postal service does not deliver your package in a timely fashion. We will generally ship in 24 to 48 hours of receiving payment for an order, EXCLUDING weekends and holidays. Please note that your package would be coming from Canada, and our holidays do not always coincide with American holidays. At Christmas time, you may need to have your package shipped as much as 3 or 4 weeks before Christmas in order to be sure of it arriving in time for gift giving.
~~ Regarding Weekends ~~
~~ National Holiday Shipping ~~
We attempt to ship all orders within 24 to 48 hours of the order being placed, however, there is no postal service in Canada on weekends or holidays which could result in packages going out a day or more later than would normally be the case. Please be aware that Canadian holidays may differ from those in the United States.
We will no longer accept Money Order payments...
We apologize to our customers, but we are no longer accepting Money Order payments. Unfortunately, we had to cancel 4 out of the last 5 orders placed that indicated a Money Order payment because those payments never arrived. When we emailed those customers regarding this matter, they did not reply. Money Order payments have generally made up much less than 2% of our orders, and therefore holding the ordered items for more than three weeks, then restocking and relisting those items is not something that we will continue to do. We're very sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause our customers, but this is a step we have been considering for quite some time and that time has now come. We will continue to accept Paypal payments. Thank you for your understanding in this regard.
**** International Purchases ****
We are happy to welcome international buyers. However, because of the difference in shipping charges, this site is set up for direct purchases only from Canada and the U.S.
If you are located outside of these two countries and would like to make a purchase from our store, please use the Contact Us button located under Information on the left-hand side of this page. Please list the Model: Item # and the title of the item when emailing, along with your shipping address so that we can calculate shipping charges.
We will contact you with a shipping charge and send a Paypal invoice with your items listed. All purchases from countries other than Canada and the U.S, must be paid for in U.S. funds using Paypal. Thank you and we hope you enjoy browsing our store.
**** Until Further Notice ****
All purchases of our Italian Charms, Shoe Charms and Silver Jewelry will be shipped with a FREE Gift Bag, Gift Box or Gift Pouch. We will choose the color, size and bag, pouch or box that will accompany your purchase. Larger quantity purchases may receive more than one of these FREE bags, boxes or pouches. If you would like to purchase additional bags, boxes or pouches, please check our store inventory to see the various choices available at this time.
We try to tie the amount we charge as closely as possible to the postage costs we incur. However, since multiple purchases are frequently made on a single order, it can easily happen that a customer will be charged more than we deem appropriate. Please be assured that if you are charged more than $2.00 above actual postage costs, we will refund the difference to your paypal account. For more information on our shipping and return policies, please see the Shipping and Returns button on the left side of this page.
