Ordering, cancelling before delivery
By completing and submitting an electronic order form, you are making an offer to purchase goods. If this offer is accepted by us, the contract is binding on both parties.
The order is accepted if and when payment is authorised by your card-issuer/bank. At this point, we will e-mail confirmation that we have received payment. Your order will then be delivered.
If payment authorisation is not received, the order is deemed to have fallen through. You will be informed immediately of any unavailable item. We reserve the right to refuse any order on grounds of unavailability, non-authorisation of payment, or pricing errors or other errors on this website.
“Working days” in delivery estimates means all days other than Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays in Malta.
If you change your mind about an order, you can cancel it before we deliver it. Please contact us at [email protected] to cancel or delay your order, citing your name, address and order reference number.
If you wish to return goods, you are obliged to keep them in your possession and take reasonable care of them until you return them. We will accept the return of goods within 15 days from their receipt by the customer, as long as these goods have not been worn, damaged or soiled in any way, or any tags, labels or barcodes removed. They should be in their original packaging, which should be undamaged.
We do not accept the return of items which have been personalised through engraving or other means, unless we are at fault.
Please contact us at [email protected] if you would like to return your order.
Internet shopping via this website is available to residents of Malta.

If a pricing error is made on our website or in the ordering process, we will inform you as soon as possible and you will have the choice between buying the goods at the correct price or cancelling your order. Your order will be deemed as having fallen through if we are unable to reach you to notify you of the error.
You may prefer to collect your order from our store. Please specify customer pick-up when ordering.
You may collect the goods within 30 days. In your own interest, we specify that the person who made the order must be the one who collects the goods, showing identification and the payment card used to place the order.
The goods will be delivered within days according to quantity items. You will need to be at the delivery address to receive these goods in person. If a failed attempt at delivery is made, we will contact you to make the necessary arrangements for collection or delivery.
