Returns & Warranty


House of Musical Traditions Return Policy


While our brick-and-mortar store is required to be closed to the public during the public health emergency, ALL SALES ARE FINAL. We appreciate your understanding - we're just not in a position to accept and facilitate returns during this time. Once we are able to operate normally again, we will go back to our more flexible return policy.
