How We Ship to Your Destination:


CANADA: Orders are billed based on a small package to your location - There is no additional charge for additional items!  You pay the same shipping on a small order that you would a large order.  Shipping starts at $10-$20 depending on where you are.  Fully Insured.  Tracking guaranteed except on Best Rate orders.  Rush shipping available.

USA: Flat rate of CAD$22 (approx US$16.50)  (HI, AK and US Protectorates are CAD$25 / approx USD$19) There is no additional charge for additional items!  It is very seldom that any duties and taxes are charged on cross-border shipments.  You can change your currency to US Dollars by clicking the flag at the top right of the page.  Fully Insured, Tracking guaranteed on all but Best Rate orders.

INTERNATIONAL: Orders are based on actual size/dimensions once packed.  You'll be presented a shipping deposit of CAD$40 - This is only enough to cover small orders such as Jewellery - Most orders will have additional shipping costs once the items arrive.  We do what we can to keep shipping costs down.  We'll give you all your options and let you know which ones have tracking and/or insurance whenever the deposit is not enough for Air shipping with Tracking. 


* If shipping is within the deposit paid, we'll ship your order and refund the difference.  If it is more we'll let you know your shipping options.  Let us know if you have any special requests for shipping at order time.

** It is important that you provide a working email address so we can write you about your order!  **


If Something Goes Wrong:

Please contact us for any issues with delivery such as a lost package, damage, or delivery delays.  Do not dispose of any packaging if your item is damaged.  It is important you do not glue or try to fix damaged items before the claim is complete.  

If you order is late - Let us know.  Most services do not have guarenteed delivery times, but some express shipping options might (UPS Express, Purolator Express, etc)

Items that show delivered but have not arrived - Let us know right away and we'll start an investigation.


Please note that packages that have been stolen from porches are not covered by insurance. Always have a secure place for your package to be left by the courier, or have someone available to physically receive it when it is delivered.


Please note that in most cases, we CANNOT refund you if packages that are proven as delivered to your address, go missing. Please keep this in mind when ordering online. The shop from where you order from is not responsible if packages are stolen off your porch once it has been successfully delivered. If someone steals it off your porch, this is not an issue we can resolve. You will need to file a complaint with the mail courier, and/or file a stolen property report with your local RCMP or Police.

SPECIAL NOTE ON SNOWGLOBES:

While we still guarantee the safe arrival on snowglobes during the winter months - Our guarantee is limited.  Snowglobes have the tendency to freeze in transport, which can lead to defects.  During the winter months, your guarentee is limited to the purchase amount only and DOES NOT include shipping.  Refunds are less the original shipping amount, and returns are subject to a new shipping charge.  We inspect all snowglobes before sending them out.


RETURNS & CANCELLATIONS

As items are special ordered for you, returns may be subject to a restocking fee to cover costs of sending items back to the vendor.  All items must be sent back prepaid.  Generally, shipping is not refunded - and shipping is calculated on the full rate, not the Half Price Shipping or Free Shipping.  Insurance and tracking is not required but is your responsibility.  Please contact us first before sending any items back, and we'll work with you for the best possible outcome.  Please let us know the reason for the return.  Please do not return damaged items without contacting us first.
