If a product is out of stock we will contact you with a choice of replacement, the option to cancel the whole order or remove that product (if part of a larger order), or arrange a later delivery date with the original choice product, if this is possible.
We have made every effort to display the colours, specifications and dimensions of items of the website as accurately as possible. The colours you see will depend on the resolution of your monitor. We cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any colour will reflect accurately the colour of the item delivered.
Rockpool Trading sells individually handmade products and thus, by definition, each item of stock is unique. There may therefore be minor differences between the product you receive and the picture displayed on our website.
We may from time to time vary dimensions, specifications and quantities of items displayed on our website without prior notice.
Where possible, Rockpool Trading aims to use recycled packaging in order to minimize our impact on the environment. The consequential reduction this has on our packaging costs has been reflected in our postage and packaging prices.
