Return/Refund Policy

At Charleston Carry, we take customer happiness to heart and make returns as easy as possible. While we carefully inspect each of our handbags and purses before shipping, we understand that things can happen.
We want you to be delighted with your purchase and refer us to family and friends.

We accept returns on all items based on the following conditions:

  • You received an incorrect item.
  • The item has a manufacturer defect (broken handle, zipper, buttons, embellishments, etc.).
  • You notify us at within 5 days of receiving your item(s).

How to Submit a Request for Return

The item must be returned in the original condition that you received it and have all original tags attached. Final approval of any return is based upon receipt and inspection.

  • Simply email us at 
  • Provide your order number, full name, address, and phone number.
  • Include a photo of the incorrect item/manufacturer defect. Be sure we can see the tag is still on the item.
  • If your request has been made within 5 days of delivery and your photo shows that you received the incorrect item or that the item has a defect, we will email you a prepaid return label to ship the item back to us. Please pack your item(s) carefully. Damage could result in the item not getting approved for a manufacturer defect.
