Damaged returns

Our products are hand crafted by artisans in Aurora and abroad. Pieces may vary due to the handmade nature of each product. A variation in paint color or shape does not qualify as a defect, but instead is a characteristic of our pieces being uniquely crafted.

MacKenzie-Childs will not replace or return any items that are broken, chipped or damaged due to regular wear and tear. Our designs are delicate in nature and should be treated and cared for as outlined on our website and in our care instructions.

If you receive an item that is damaged due to shipping, please save the damaged goods, carton, and packaging material. Contact the retail location or customer service department where you purchased the item and they will help facilitate a return.
