Will you carry my product in your store?
We're always looking for beautiful new items for our store! If you have a product that you think would be a great fit for k colette, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can you gift wrap my order?
Absolutely! We offer beautiful complimentary gift wrapping with a hand-written note. Simply check the "gift wrap" box at the bottom of the cart page and leave your message for the recipient in the message box.
The product I want is out of stock. When will it be available again?
Our products are handmade and often one-of-a-kind, which means we do not stock large quantities, though we do our best to re-stock most items in a timely manner. If you have a special request or question about the availability of any of our products, please don't hesitate to contact us. If we cannot provide you with the item that you're looking for, we're happy to connect you with the artist or artisan who made the item, or a retailer who can.
What if I have a question about a product?
Give us a call! We're always happy to answer any questions you might have and chat about the artists and artisans who make our products. We have staff in the store to answer your calls from 10am to 6pm, Monday through Saturday, and from 12pm to 4pm on Sundays EST. You can reach us at 207-775-9099. You're welcome to email us any time at email@example.com.
Are all of the products that you carry in your brick and mortar store listed on your online store?
We like to think of our online store as a way to highlight the stories behind a special selection of items from our full collection. The online collection is constantly changing and features just a cross section of the variety of items in our brick and mortar store. If you have visited our store or seen something on facebook or instagram that we don't offer online, please contact us. We're happy to take your order over the phone.
What payment methods do you accept?
We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, Apple Pay and American Express. We're not able to take payment via Paypal at this time.
Do I have to pay sales tax on my purchase?
You will only be charged sales tax if your items are being shipped to an address in Maine, or if you are picking up your items in our Portland shop.
Can I place my order over the phone?
Of course! Our sales staff is here and happy to take your call Monday through Saturday from 10am to 6pm, and Sunday from 12pm to 4pm EST. Call us at 207-775-9099.
Why do you require my phone number when I'm checking out?
We only require this so that we can easily communicate with you if we have questions about your order. We also provide it to our shipping carrier, Fedex, who will only use it if there is a problem with your shipment. We will never sell or share your phone number or other personal information.

Return Policy & Taking Merchandise on Quote
If you are a designer working on a local project, we offer the option to take merchandise out on quote before purchasing. We require a credit card on file and a signature on our printed loan agreement. If you intend to return the merchandise, returns must be made within a 48 hour window. Loans that extend beyond that period will receive one courtesy call, then will be charged to the credit card on file. Returns are eligible for store credit refund only, up to 2 weeks.
If you are a designer working on an out-of-state project that requires merchandise be out of the store longer than 48 hours (including shipping time), items must be purchased outright before being shipped out. Once you receive the merchandise, we allow a 48 hour window to try the merchandise in the space. To be eligible for a refund, you must call to confirm your intent to return within 48 hours of inventory arriving. If the intent to return is not communicated within this timeframe, returns are eligible for store credit only, up to 2 weeks. Return shipping costs are to be paid by the designer.
Renting Merchandise for Styling or Photo Shoots
For stylists and designers using inventory for staging and/or photoshoots, merchandise may be taken out on rent. If written credit will be listed explicitly to k colette in the publication, the rental fee is 5% of the total merchandise amount. If written credit will not be listed, the rental fee is 10% of the total merchandise amount. We require a credit card on file and a signature on our printed rental agreement. Rented merchandise must be returned to the store within a 72 hour window. Rentals that extend beyond that period will receive one courtesy call, then will be charged the full merchandise amount to the credit card on file. If you choose to purchase any items used in the shoot, the rental amount will be deducted from the cost of the merchandise. Returns are eligible for store credit refund only, up to 2 weeks.
What shipping service do you use?
We ship the majority of our items via Fedex. Gift cards are shipped via USPS and are shipped for free.
What is the cost of shipping?
