The following Policies govern use of this site and the purchase of goods through Table of Contents. Table of Contents, Inc. ("TOC") reserves the right to update or modify these terms and conditions at any time. By using this site, you agree to be bound by the Policies set forth below. 


When your order has been received by TOC, you will receive an email confirming that order. We will make every effort to process your order as swiftly as possible, however, fulfillment can take up to one week. We are a very small organization, and travel can occasionally disrupt our normal fulfillment schedule. Once an order has been processed, we cannot cancel or modify the order. If you need to cancel or modify an order that has been processed, please refer to our Returns policy below.


Orders are generally dispatched within 2 business days from the date we receive your order and credit verification has been confirmed. You will receive a confirmation email when your order has been received, and a shipment confirmation with tracking information once the order has been processed. 

Shipping is calculated as follows:

1-10 lbs, UPS Ground, $14
11-25 lbs, UPS Ground, $30
25 lbs and up, shipping determined by piece

1-12 lbs, UPS Expedited, $38

Other International Destinations:
1-12 lbs, UPS Expedited, $48

Shipments within the United States are sent via UPS Ground, and will typically arrive within 3-5 business days. Shipments outside the US are made via UPS Expedited. International orders may be subject to customs duties depending on your country of residence. The buyer is responsible for any and all such customs duties and taxes. Expected arrival date for international orders is approximately 4-10 days from the order date. Buyer will receive a shipment confirmation email with the shipping tracking number.

You are responsible for providing TOC with correct billing and shipping information. If an order has been shipped to an inaccurate address that you have provided, we cannot be held responsible.

If you refuse a shipment from TOC or do not pick up your package, and the package is returned to us, you are responsible for the original shipping cost, return shipping cost, any assessed customs duties or taxes, and a 25% restocking fee. This total will be subtracted from any applicable merchandise credit. 


Returns are accepted for stock, non-discounted items in new, unused condition with intact packaging within 7 days of receipt of your order for store credit or exchange only. Once authorization has been obtained, we must receive the item back at our location within 7 days. Returns are not accepted after this time. 

Vintage items, jewelry, publications, fragrances, candles, special/custom orders, furniture, artwork, international orders (outside the US), and all sale/discounted items are final-sale and are not eligible for return/exchange. All vintage items are sold as-is and are not returnable. We do our best to describe the items accurately, but if you have any questions about the condition of an item, please inquire before purchasing. We reserve the right to deny returns/exchanges if merchandise returned does not meet the requirements stated above. 

To return an item, please contact us at toc@tableofcontents.us to receive return authorization. Please include your order number and list the item(s) for which you are requesting a return. 

You are responsible for return shipping costs. TOC is not responsible for damaged or lost returns, so we recommend that you use a trackable shipping service and purchase insurance. We will not issue credit for lost or damaged goods.

Upon acceptance of the merchandise for return, your credit will be processed within 7 business days, and you will receive an email acknowledging the return.


We accept payment by Paypal, Visa, Mastercard and American Express.
