Computer says no. Once an order has been despatched, the delivery address cannot be changed. This is because your order has already been packed and may have already left our warehouse.
If you have moved house and want to receive the parcel on its way to your old address, try contacting your local Post Office to organise a redirection.
If you are not at the specified delivery address when delivery is attempted, the courier will leave a 'while you were out' card. This will give you the information you need to collect your parcel, or have it redelivered elsewhere.

if you would like us to see if your nearest White Stuff shop has one available.
All items must be collected from the White Stuff shop because, at the moment, they cannot post items to you. We have plans to change this soon.
► What does 'Low in Stock' mean?
'Low in Stock' means that there are less than three of that item in our warehouse.
We cannot guarantee that any 'low in stock' item will be despatched. This might be because we take lots of orders at the same time.
► When will I know if a 'Low Stock' item is going to be sent to me?
If the item(s) are not available, we will send you an email to tell you, and we will place the item on backorder for you.
If we know that the item is not available and we know we won't be getting any more back in, we will cancel the item from your order and send you an email to confirm this.
Otherwise, the item will be included in your parcel and we will send a 'despatch confirmation email'.
► What does it mean when an item I've ordered has been 'backordered'?
It means that we did not have any of your item in stock when the order was placed, but we may be getting some more back in.
If your item was ordered on a status of 'Low Stock' and has since been backordered, we will keep it on backorder for 3 weeks. After this time, we will update you on the status of the item.
If you ordered an item that we knew was delayed and we put it on backorder, we will send you an email when it has been despatched.
► Why can't I find the product I'm looking for?
This is because the item you are looking for is either out of stock, or has not arrived yet.
If you have any questions, please call our team on 020 7735 8133 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
► 20th December 2013 - Angora wool update?
20th December 2013
White Stuff does not condone animal cruelty.
We currently use Angora wool in some of our accessories and clothing ranges and we are confident in our supplier certification and subsequent investigation which has assured us of their compliance with the ethical sourcing of the Angora wool we use.
