Shipping policies

Please check your messages - we often send a confirmation note, and sometimes we ask questions if we need to confirm some information. If we do not receive a reply that can cause small delays in shipping.

Items ship after payment is received, usually within a few days. We ship through Canada Post.

We will ship to the address on your Etsy account. If you want it to go elsewhere tell us in Notes to Seller during the checkout process.

Shipping costs include postage as well as packaging materials. We do offer reduced combined shipping on purchases of multiple items. However, please be aware that Canada Post assesses its rates by both weight and size, so while a bigger heavier package of multiple items might cost less than a couple of smaller packages, it might not be significantly lower.

Most items will go to the US as Small Package, which does not include a tracking number. If you'd like tracking on your package it will cost a few dollars extra - please contact us for details.

Most items to Canada will ship as Parcel, which does include a tracking number, though some may ship as Oversize Letter, which does not.

Please be aware we are not responsible for items lost by the postal service. If you would like to purchase insurance on your package please contact us. Again, please note: we are simply unable to insure glass or ceramic items. Buyer is responsible for any customs fees.

We can give you an estimate of how long shipping should take, but please allow time for your package to arrive. If you need the item in a rush let us know and we can look into costs of shipping upgrades.

We do ship internationally! Please note: the international shipping costs we have currently listed are generally maximum rates, so shipping costs may be lower to your location - if that is the case we will issue you a refund. If you would like an estimate before making your purchase please send us a message through Conversation.
