RETURNS

little orange fish wants you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. Although we do not offer refunds, we will gladly accept returns for an exchange of merchandise or for store credit. Our Return Policy varies slightly for online and in-store purchases, so please continue reading.

Clearance items and special orders are always final sale. For a detailed list of what cannot be exchanged, see below.

Returns for online purchases - Only merchandise or size exchanges can be made for orders placed online, and items must qualify for a return (see below). If you are unhappy with your order or an item does not fit, please contact us within 10 days of the delivery date to resolve the issue. Please email us or call 817-416-7774 to find out if the size you need is in stock, or for help with the exchange. If we no longer have the size you need and are unable to reorder it, we will help you find a comparable replacement. 

Items must be returned to little orange fish at the customer’s expense before the replacement merchandise is shipped. Once the exchange is processed, we will pay for the shipment of your replacement merchandise. Returns without prior communication will not be accepted.

Returns for in-store purchases – A return for an exchange of merchandise or store credit can be made within 30 days of purchase. The customer must have a copy of the original receipt or gift receipt, and items must qualify for a return (see below).

 

Items that cannot be returned/exchanged:

  • Permanently Discounted/Clearance items - Any item sold for less than the full retail price as part of an end-of-season or otherwise permanent markdown.
  • Items no longer in original packaging - Any item that is not in the box, plastic wrap, bag, or other packaging in which it was purchased.
  • Items that have been worn and/or washed.
  • Special or custom orders.
  • Items no longer in sellable condition – items with stains, damage, scents, or other conditions that were not present when the item was purchased and that were not the result of faulty manufacturing or oversight. (Please see our Defective Merchandise Policy for more information.)

  • Holiday items - Any item made specifically for a seasonal event or holiday such as Christmas, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, 4th of July, etc.  This includes all outfits from “holiday” collections.

Return Disclaimer - We reserve the right to limit returns and to deny a return if the original transaction cannot be verified. It is our discretion whether or not to allow a return outside of the official 30-day window. If allowed, store credit will be granted in the amount of the current selling price or the price paid, whichever is lower.

Transaction Verification – To process a return, we require a copy of either the original receipt or gift receipt in order to verify the original transaction. If the customer does not have an original receipt or a gift receipt, it is our discretion whether or not to move forward with a return. For returns without a receipt, we may request a valid I.D. and will enter this information into our return database. Using this information or the customer’s email address, we may attempt to search for the original transaction. If the transaction is located, the return will be processed as a return with a receipt.

If no receipt is present and the original transaction cannot be located, but the merchandise in question otherwise qualifies for a return, it is our sole discretion whether or not to proceed. If we do, it will be to offer an exchange for store credit in the amount of the current selling price or the price at which the item was last sold, whichever is lower.
