Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Return or Exchange An Item?

We understand that shopping online can sometimes be tricky and we want you to love the things you buy from Small Acorns.

If for any reason you are not happy please contact us as soon as possible.

We are not obliged to accept any goods for return where you have simply changed your mind, and all goods for return must be authorised by us, whether purchased online, instore or via phone or email.

For a return to be processed, Small Acorns needs to be notified within 14 days of your order. After this time, we regret we cannot accept the goods for return.

If for any reason you are not satisfied with any product you have purchased online, please return it to us in original, unopened condition (this is particularly important with bedlinen) with all original tags and packaging, & your receipt, and we will credit it or refund the purchase price using the method you used for the initial purchase. A refund or credit note will be at our discretion. Freight and delivery charges will not be refunded or credited.

For goods purchased instore, please choose carefully, as we are not obliged to accept any goods for return when you have simply changed your mind. However, we are happy to exchange or credit the items, providing they are returned within 14 days of purchase in original, unopened condition (this is particularly important with bedlinen) with the original packaging and tags attached, and your original receipt is presented. We regret that without a receipt, we cannot exchange or credit. We will not offer a refund. When purchasing a gift, please ask for an exchange card.

We cannot offer refunds, credits or returns on fabric, wallpaper, indented items, sale items, lay-bys or gift vouchers. We cannot give change on gift vouchers or credit notes. All sale items purchased online are firm sale, and cannot be returned.

We cannot accept unused goods in damaged packaging unless they are faulty. For hygiene reasons cosmetics, creams and toiletries cannot be returned unless they are faulty.

If your item is faulty, the fault will be assessed by the Small Acorns team and either repaired, replaced or refunded. Should the replacement item be out of stock we will either offer a store credit, an exchange for another item, or a refund.

Unfortunately we are unable to refund, exchange or credit any items damaged in the wash.

Fabric, wallpaper & rug orders are indented and are neither returnable or cancellable. We cannot be held responsible for delays in delivery time that are beyond our control, and will always do our best to keep you informed should we experience a delay beyond that of our usual expected delivery timeframe.

We're sorry, but due to the nature, size & scheduling of our workshops, we are unable to offer a refund, credit or a date transfer if you are unable to attend. You are welcome to find someone to replace you. Refunds are not available.

Your statutory rights are not affected.


All pre-order items are clearly labelled and include their approximate delivery date. If your order contains a mix of instock and pre-order items, please note that the entire order will be shipped once the final piece has arrived in store. If you would like your instock items sent prior to the pre-order items, please either process your orders separately or an additional freight cost will be charged for partially shipped orders.

Small Acorns Insider Club Points 

Loyalty points are not rewarded on already discounted items, sale items or during promotions. Fabric, interior make costs and labour, wallpaper and furniture purchases are also not eligible for loyalty points. Adventures With Marigolds tours are also not eligible for loyalty points. Laybys and On Account purchases will qualify for loyalty points once the transaction is fully paid, and if those items were eligible for loyalty points. 

The purchase of gift vouchers does not earn Loyalty Points. Only the redemption of the gift voucher will count towards Loyalty Points on the recipient’s profile against products purchased.

Do your loyalty points expire? No and yes. Your points don't expire provided you keep your account active within a 12 month period. For example, if you shop with us in June 2022 but don't earn or redeem with us again until July 2023, your points will expire as your account was inactive for a 12 month period. However if you shop with us a few times in a year then you get to keep all your points and your older points won't expire. We will send you a reminder email if your points are in danger of expiring.

We reserve the right to change these Terms at any time by notifying users of the existence of revised terms and conditions through the website.
