ANSWER: Assuming a contract was formed, under the general common law principles of contract law and damages for breach of a contract between you and the customer, the customer can be held liable for damages that resulted from a breach of the contract. But you also have to do due diligence to mitigate the damages. So you need to try to return what you can return to the company from which you received inventory. The customer may be responsible for making you whole again: paying for shipping costs, paying for restocking costs, any fees or penalties related to returning the items, etc.
Depending on the amount damages, this might end up being filed in small claims court.
