As shown on the site, an out-of-stock item can be ordered and is estimated to take 4-6 weeks to receive. Please note that there are a hand full of brands that we do not keep in-stock due to the large amount of inventory. These brands (Anna Weatherley, J.L. Coquet, and Raynaud) will take extra time to ship out and the stock shown for these brands does not reflect our in-store stock but rather their availability.

We reserve the right to cancel any order we receive at our discretion. The full amount charged will be credited back to your account.
