Unearthing buried treasures

It started with a love for squirrels. And then modern design. Or was it the other way around?

I figured that if I open up a shop I have no excuse not to buy all the beautiful objects that cross my path. And then the shop made me take more paths in return.

Returns and exchange details
Please note that everything I sell is vintage and there might be some signs of age. I always try to describe them accurately and show any damage in photos.

If something gets damaged in transit, please let me know and provide photos ASAP, no later than 24 hours after receiving the package.

No returns. If we agree on a return the buyer is responsible for return shipping to Canada and for a 20% restocking fee.
Ontario residents will be charged 13% HST.
I will try to use recycled packing materials as much as possible.

I will not ship to Italy or Russia due to packages going missing.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please note that all packages are sent from Toronto, Canada.
As such, they might be subject to duties and import taxes. I cannot give you an estimate of what they might be and such fees are the responsibility of the buyer.

Please be aware that your item may be held at customs for inspection, delaying the delivery time, and you may be charged a customs fee or import tax or similar. Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do about customs clearance - customs laws make the importer (the buyer - you!) responsible for these fees.

UK Buyers specifically: Anything worth more than £15 which is imported to the UK from a non-EU country is subject to VAT at 20% of the item value, plus an additional £8 handling fee. You will likely be required to pay this upon receipt of your package. This hefty tax is imposed by your government. I have absolutely nothing to do with it, nor am I responsible for paying it. I am also not able to mark your item as “gift” or mark it at a lower value, as that would be considered fraud. Please take this into consideration when making your purchase.
