We can also provide two-day shipping on any order through DHL. The order deadline for this option would be December 14th. Please contact us prior to processing your order to confirm this option and get a quote.

Wishing everyone a lovely holiday season. 

Sizing Availability

Because we are a made to order business, we’re often able make a product in any size should the item show as available. If the item is showing unavailable in your size, send us an email at info@thelocalwoman.com and we'll move the inventory around for you. 

Stock Availability

Available products will show as in stock, however, you can subscribe to the product back in stock notification should you hope to hear about an item that's no longer available. 

Please note that we do make quite a few items that are limited run, so if you have your eye on something, get it while you can! There’s a chance it will sell out. 

Orders

All of our garments are handmade to order and typically take between 2-6 weeks to produce. We thank you for your patience while our team works hard to create heirloom quality pieces. The specific wait time per piece is detailed in the product descriptions.

When your order is placed, you will receive an order confirmation via email. Once your items have been made, an additional shipping confirmation email will be sent. Although we often ship items faster than the estimated time frame, we recommend allowing for the specific time period detailed in the product description. 

We thank you for your patience and appreciate your support.
