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.  There are no guaranteed arrival times due to the ongoing pandemic - but we will help keep watch for you.

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.
