Frequently Asked Questions

placing an order

For our customers who live in the Cold Spring area, we are offering curbside pick-up. Just select that as your shipping option at checkout. Please wait for a confirmation that your order is ready to pick-up before arriving.

For our customers who live in Manhattan, we are taking phone orders for pick-up in store. Please call your neighborhood Pink Olive so we can make sure we have everything you need in stock or e-mail us at

The most common reason for a failed order is a problem with the credit card. If you live within the continental USA, make sure that the billing address you're entering on matches what your bank has on file. If you live internationally, does not accept certain international credit cards and the best way to place an order is over the phone or through e-mail. Please contact us at and we will help you process your order.

Make sure that you are inserting the gift certificate number into the Payment field and not the Coupon field. If you still experience problems, please contact us at and we'll assist you in completing your order.

First, check your spam folder. Oftentimes communications are sorted automatically into your spam or “promotions" folder because your e-mail host doesn't think you want to see it. If it isn't there, please e-mail us at and we'll get the information for you. Due to the Covid-19 crisis, please allow a few additional days for us to get your order shipped out.

At this time, we are not able to offer rush shipping. Please e-mail us at and we will do our best to assist you.

Hello friend, we ship all over the world. If you're still unsure if we ship to your destination, please e-mail us at We'll be happy to help!

Certain items on carry a “shipping surcharge" on the listing because the item is particularly heavy or oddly shaped or extra-large and require different packaging material. A “shipping surcharge" means that in addition to the standard shipping rate, there is an additional shipping fee added for that particular item. This also means that if you live within the continental USA and qualify for the free shipping over $100 promotion, you would still be charged for the “shipping surcharge" on any item(s) in your order.

We do our best to carry the majority of the items that we have in-store online. However, there are certain exceptions with products that are in-store only and certain products that are online only. Please e-mail us at with any distinguishing characteristics about the item you saw in-store and we will help you track it down.

If you think your order has been lost in-transit, please contact us at and we will do everything we can to help locate your package. Our policy is to wait 2-3 weeks for the package to be returned to us and if at that time, the package has still not been located or returned, we will reship the order on a case-by-case basis.

Once a package is marked as delivered by either the United States Postal Service or FedEx, we assume that the package has arrived at the final destination. We are not responsible for lost or stolen packages after it's been delivered.

We ship international orders through First-Class Mail International and the tracking services they provide are only available until the package leaves the United States. Packages can take 1-4 weeks to arrive depending on the destination and services in your country. We are not responsible for missing or stolen packages. Please contact us at if you'd like to upgrade to a different shipping method. Due to covid-19, please allow 1-4 additional weeks for your package to arrive.

When a package is returned to us, we will contact you as soon as we are aware that the package is coming back. We will ask you to confirm the shipping address and you are responsible for the cost of the re-shipment (this is the same amount as your original shipping charge). Once we have received payment and the package has been returned, we will re-ship your order. If your order qualified for free shipping, you will be responsible for the shipping costs on the re-shipment.

If the order was intended as a gift and the recipient has moved, we will not re-ship the package to the same address.

We are not responsible for packages lost or incorrectly delivered due to incorrect shipping addresses.

We do apologize! Please e-mail us at with photos of the shipping box and the damaged item so we can ascertain the damage and try to prevent the same damage from happening in the future. We will send you a return authorization number for the damaged item to be shipped back to us, and once it has been received, we will ship out a new item to replace the damaged one.

Ah, buyer's remorse! If you're really not happy, please e-mail us at with your name, order number, and which items you would like to return. We accept returns within 14 days of delivery. We will issue a return authorization number and process your return once we receive the items in our shop. If the items are in saleable condition, we will issue a store credit for the items returned. Shipping costs are not refundable.

Sale items, jewelry, and artwork are final sale and not returnable.

How nice! Our gift certificates expire after a year and you can absolutely use it in-store! Just present the gift certificate to one of our gift selling specialists.

product submissions

At Pink Olive we carry a wide array of carefully curated items and we appreciate every product submission that we receive. Due to the high volume of submissions we receive daily, we are unable to personally respond to every email, but we will be in touch if it's the right fit for the store at that time.

To offer your product for consideration, please see our product submission page and follow the instructions.

We have very limited space in our stores, so at this time we do not accept samples unless requested. Any samples sent to us without request will be disposed or donated.
