HOW IS MY ORDER FULFILLED?
The majority of Gigi Burris Millinery pieces are made to order in New York City by our team of millinery artisans. Once an order is placed and paid for, processing begins. Please allow for up to a two week lead time for your order to be completed. If an order is expected to take longer, you will be notified immediately. Given that each piece is individually handmade by the milliners in the atelier, there may be slight variations, but that is an element of the beauty in handmade produced hats.
We always do our best to get your piece shipped as quickly as possible; if your order is a rush please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will work to expedite it.

WHAT ARE THE DETAILS OF INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING?
Customs Delays: We understand that international orders may be subject to customs inspections and delays. As a small business based in the USA, we cannot be held liable for any customs-related issues that may arise during the shipping and delivery process. The customer is responsible for any additional customs fees, taxes, or duties imposed by their country's customs authorities.
Duties and Taxes: All customs duties, taxes, and any other fees imposed by the destination country are the sole responsibility of the purchaser. These charges are separate from the product and shipping costs and must be borne by the purchaser upon delivery. It is essential for the customer to be aware of and comply with their country's customs regulations and requirements. Please direct questions to email@example.com prior to purchase.
Estimated Delivery Times: Please note that all delivery times provided are estimates and may be subject to customs processing. Customs processing times can vary significantly from country to country and are beyond our control. While we strive to ensure prompt shipment and delivery of orders, we cannot guarantee specific delivery dates for international orders.
Communication with Customers: In the event of customs delays, we will do our best to provide customers with any necessary information or documentation to assist in the customs clearance process. However, it is the responsibility of the customer to work with their country's customs authorities to resolve any clearance issues.
Tracking and Updates: For international orders, we provide tracking information whenever possible. Customers can use this tracking information to monitor the progress of their shipment. However, please be aware that tracking updates may be limited once the package has entered the customs clearance process.
Documentation and Compliance: We will accurately complete all required customs documentation to the best of our knowledge. However, it is the customer's responsibility to provide accurate and complete information necessary for customs clearance. Any customs penalties or fines resulting from inaccurate or incomplete information provided by the customer will be the customer's responsibility.
IS SALES TAX APPLICABLE?
Sales tax is applicable on all orders shipped within New York state. The rate is 8.875%. For orders shipped outside of New York state, sales tax does not apply.
DOES MY HAT SHIP IN A HAT BOX?
Yes! Available exclusively for purchases made on the Gigi Burris website, each hat is sent out in a luxury branded square hat box. The high end packaging can be used for closet storage or travel.
Please note, the few styles that feature our largest brims measuring over 5 inches in width can not be shipped in hat boxes due to size.
Every headband order is sent in a branded windowed hatbox with magnetic closure. This elegant box is created with the intention of providing a beautiful storage solution for your new piece.
