Thank you for visiting the little red mercantile! Please enjoy browsing among my vintage treasures; I hope you find a few to call your own :)

I have a few general policies listed below, please take a moment to read them over.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Please be sure of your purchases as all sales are final. Refunds issued only in the case of items broken en route to your home. In the event your item is lost in transit, store credit equal to the purchase value will be issued.
I accept payment by Paypal only. If you're new to using Paypal, it's easy! You can sign up for an account, OR use your credit card via their service. please click the link below for some helpful FAQ on how to get started:
I ship via Canada Post from a Western remote rural area, within 5 business days of purchase. There is no postal service in my town on weekends so any purchases made Friday, Saturday, Sunday will ship on or shortly after the Monday following.

Packages to overseas and Eastern areas of the USA can take anywhere from 10 to 21 BUSINESS days to arrive once mailed from my area. 21 business days is equal to ONE CALENDAR MONTH. Please keep in mind that I have no control over the speed of shipment once posted; once mailed it has left my hands.

I cannot make any guarantees over arrival times as I am not the one personally delivering it to your location. With all my past experiences mailing a 3 week wait is very common, and a 4 week wait not unheard of. If you are purchasing an item for an occasion and you outside of Canada I would advise making the purchase a month or more in advance. I will not consider an item lost untill 4 weeks has passed from the date of mailing.

I charge actual shipping prices. In the event your item requires special packaging materials, that is added on to the price. eg: very large bubble mailer envelope, packing peanuts.

All shipping prices in Canada/USA are for lowest shipping rates, small packet surface. Canada Post does not offer a tracking number with this option. If you wish for tracking, insurance or a faster service option, those are all additional charges and you must contact me PRIOR TO PURCHASE to arrange an adjusted listing.

All overseas shipments (outside Canada and USA) are sent Airmail Small Packet. There is no tracking option for this service. It can be very costly if your items are heavy. Sending a 500gram - 1kg package to Europe airmail is about $33. I will not ship overseas items via surface as the wait can be as much as 3-4 months.

Please be aware that all packages coming into a country from another can be subject to a customs handling from the receiving country. This can add additional wait time. If your country levies a customs charge on your package that is out of my control completely, and that is your responsibility to pay.
