The Presentation Of Your Order
Presentation is very important to us at Nikki’s Original Totes and all our products are wrapped in tissue paper and carefully packaged. A care leaflet is also included with every bag purchased, helping you to prolong the life of your bag by following the concise guide.
Once you have placed your order:
Each bag or accessory is then cut out by hand and sewn together by myself in order of receipt.
There is no stock just sitting in a stock room, I sometimes wish there was!
This is why I have now had to increase dispatch time permanently.
Please allow 7-10 working days for your order to be dispatched.
I will continue to strive to get the order out to you far quicker than that, but please accept certain circumstances will mean I need the full time quota.
At Nikki’s Original Totes we make every effort to ensure your purchase gets to you quickly, safely and in the most effective way possible.
All products are shipped via Royal Mail First Class and proof of posting is obtained and filed with us. Each bag is sent in the most reasonable way to try and prevent undue creasing. We are happy to offer a tracked service for any order at an additional cost to the customer. Please email for details.
I can no longer take responsibility for post that goes missing or is damaged in transit unless the tracked option is paid for.
Postage rates are based on the total weight and size of your order in line with Royal Mail prices.
Please note, tracked deliveries require a signature on delivery.
Europe & Rest of the World
Products will be dispatched to you within 7-10 working days.
Deliveries to Europe and ROI should take approx 10-14 working days after placing your order.
Globally delivery will take from 14-18 working days. Our products are sent out first class standard Air Mail. We are happy to offer a tracked service for any order at additional cost to the customer. Please email for details.
Please note : Any overseas delivery may be subject to local import duties and taxes, and possibly be affected by Customs and Excise delays. Nikki’s Original Totes cannot be held liable for any local import duties and taxes imposed.
Again I can not be held responsible for any lost or damaged parcels unless the tracked option has been chosen.
Any products out of stock
In the event that an item is temporarily out of stock, or no longer available, we will inform you of the expected arrival date and dispatch it as soon as it arrives, or offer a complete refund.
