Most orders are carefully packed and shipped within 3 business days. Our handmade products are crafted by small, independent artisans in limited quantities which means sometimes we run out and have a short delay. We do our best to keep this from happening but if it does, we'll notify you ASAP! Custom items and furniture may take 2-8 weeks. Check the product page for lead times. (Back to top)



Purchasing a gift?  Contact us at and we'll work with you to make sure your present is perfectly wrapped! Gifts will be wrapped in brown kraft paper with colorful accents (bows, pom poms, or washi tape) and an optional gift tag. Note: some handmade items come directly from the designer and may arrive in different wrapping. (Back to top)

Small items ship internationally!  International customers are responsible for any fees that may come up at customs. Due to various customs regulations in each country, Apt528 cannot guarantee the delivery date of international orders.

Unfortunately, we don't currently offer international furniture shipping, however customers are welcome to arrange shipping on their own. Contact us prior to purchase. (Back to top)
