Terms and Conditions

Where do we Post to?

I will post orders to U.K. I'm sorry, but I cannot sell to any other countries.

Postage & Packing Charges

Free First Class post to anywhere in the U.K. is included in the price of each costume.

If you require a faster delivery, we recommend upgrading to Special Delivery at an additional cost of £5.00 per order. Royal Mail guarantee the parcel will be delivered the next working day after it has been posted (usually by 1pm), or they will return the postage fee. However, there must be someone available at the delivery address to sign for the parcel, or it will be returned to the sorting office.

Please note! Orders for in-stock costumes will be despatched within two working days, even if Special Delivery has been selected.

If you require the Special Delivery Saturday Delivery service, this costs an additional £9.00 per order. For more information on Royal Mail's Special Delivery service, please see the Royal Mail's own website.

If you have a particular date you need a costume delivered by, please check with us as to which service we recommend.

Despatching Orders

In Stock Costumes

Orders for in-stock costumes will be despatched within two working days.

I will e-mail all customers to let them know when their order has been sent.

While Shepherds Watched cannot be held responsible for any delay in delivery caused by Royal Mail, or by there not being someone to sign for a Special Delivery parcel.

However, on the rare occasion that a parcel doesn't turn up, please do contact me and I'll do my best to help.
