*Return Policy - If you receive your order and are not happy with it in some way, please contact me. Do not just send them back! There are absolutely not returns on fashion feathers sold on full or half saddles. Any returns on other items will be charged a 20% restocking charge.
This is because of a few who have ordered saddles and after receiving them, plucked feathers and then returned them wanting a full refund. We can not count each feather on every saddle we sell, so there is no other way to deal this problem.
The second reason is hygene. Some fly tyers touch these feathers to their mouth. Stylist put them into peoples hair, close to their customer's eyes. Once we ship an order, the feathers are out of our control and due to insurance issues, we cannot resell them. The liability would put us out of business.
