If you live outside of North America, I am happy to ship to you. Just DM me or email me at pamela@pdubxo.com and we will figure out what the quickest, most cost effective and reliable way is to do so. 

Can I cancel my order?

You may cancel the order before before it is processed and shipped. If tracking information has been provided this means the order has been processed and is on its way.

How long does it take to ship my order?

Orders can take up to 3 days to process and ship. Orders placed on the weekend will be processed the following open weekday. If there is a problem with the processing time I will inform you.
Tracked parcels should take 2-8 days depending on destination.

International Duties:

PWD is not responsible for any additional shipping or duties fees on your order. Canadian Law requires PWD to provide accurate and legitimate shipping details. PWD will not mark packages as "gifts".

Do you charge taxes?

Currently no. But as my business grows, any orders placed within Canada will be charged their respective GST/HST rates at checkout. I will communicate that when the time comes.

Lost or Damaged Items:

PWD is not responsible for lost or damaged packages. I will provide your tracking number and shipping company information. Once this information has been provided to the customer, it is the customer's responsibility to deal with the shipping company for a resolution. All items are purchased at the customer's risk.

Delivery Location

I recommend choosing a secure location for your delivery address, since I can’t be responsible for stolen or lost shipments. If you require signature upon-delivery, contact me ahead of time to arrange for it.

If the address provided to me is incorrect or the package is returned to me for any reason, I will contact you asap! Please double check your address. Many people are utilizing "auto-fill" on their computers/mobile and suite numbers or street addresses are missing.

GREEN RETURNS POLICY (The Club Members Only)

I provide a ‘Green Return Policy’ to all ShopPdub.com ‘The Club’ members (for more info about The Club, & how to join here)

What this means is that I am providing full refunds for club members without members having to return the original item for all items under $100. I am doing this in an effort to significantly reduce the cost & environmental footprint & processing & handling of returns. Green Returns are available for a week after you have had a chance to try on your item. If it’s a gift just let me know if you need further time.

It is then up to you if you wish to give, gift or donate the item that didn’t work for you.

Email me at pamela@pdubxo.com and I will issue you full refund or credit, less any shipping or taxes.

For items > $100 please contact me to arrange for a return label, and I will issue a full refund or store credit,

The Green Return policy applies to both LONG-CAT Designs & NINE-LIVES designer & vintage resale.

I move forward with this policy with the understanding that anyone within ‘The Club’ who deploys this policy will be doing so respectfully as it was intended. 

Any abuse of the Green Policy will result in response via ban from The Club, and ban from all Pdub sites and social media. 

The Green Returns Policy does not apply to Oops!/SALE items, they are all Final Sale and Non-Refundable

What do I use for Packaging? 

I am doing my best to use compostable or recyclable materials for packaging, or reusing materials, or providing you with re-usable packing material. I am trying to reduce waste and my carbon footprint.Your item will however, be very carefully packaged & protected. 

Will I make a custom order?

At this time I am not doing custom orders. If there is something that you liked or are looking for, lets chat about it and I’ll see if we can figure something out. Deal?

Why doesn’t the item received look like the one in the picture?

Each piece is individually hand made, Dye tones may vary for each project, and can cast different colours in different lights. Many colours can be difficult to photograph, but I do my best to accurately capture the correct colour. 

Why don’t you have multiples or sizing?

Most of the items I make are one of a kind, and I source pre-owned, overstock,  handmade or sustainably made garments. I may only find one of two of the same item. I may on occasion be able to find multiples of something like the ‘Better Lounge Pant’

Is it a flaw or is it art?

Remember...every single item is unique. My dye work may appear to have a lot of imperfections, I’m hoping you view that as creative beauty and not something offensive. As well, I am working with pre-owned items in some cases which may also have some slight imperfections. I will do my best to make sure every item I create is of the best quality and design for you.

What do I use to create my pieces?

Each item is made from either a high quality pre-owned item, deadstock items, handmade or sustainably made items. All dyes are non-toxic professional dyes.

How do I CARE for my items?

Remember, dyes will naturally fade, and you may experience some dye release your first few washes. This is to be expected. Do your best to follow the ‘care’ instructions I have included specifically for your garment to keep it at its best. Wash on its own the first few washes, and if you can, take the time to wash carefully by hand. With careful treatment you should be able to enjoy your special piece for many years.

Labels have been removed from many of the pre-owned items, but I will include a separate tag that will detail fabric content and specific care instructions

Giving Back

How are you giving back? 

I will donate 20% of all profits to a number of non-profits including the Ottawa Stray Cat Rescue, and our local Food Bank.

I will run other charitable events such as the Spring Online Auction where I donate a number if my creations for auction. 

I will list updates on this shop’s homepage, on Instagram, follow @PamelaWilson____ and on Facebook (PdubXO)
