You can also order products and have them shipped with a greeting message to someone else. We offer gift wrapping service free of charge on orders for which you provide a gift message in your order notes.
Shipping and Delivery
For US addresses we charge a base shipping rate USD $4.95. For Canadian addresses we charge a base shipping rate determined by Canada Post Expedited Parcel Service. We offer free shipping on any orders to US/Canada over USD $85 dollars before any applicable taxes.
For addresses not located in the US or Canada, the shipping and handling charges are based on the total weight of your order. Our checkout process is designed to automatically calculate the weight of your order, which is then used to show the shipping and handling rates.
We ship most of our orders within one to three business days from the date you submit your order. Note: Orders placed over the weekend (After 11:00 AM PST on Fridays) will be processed the following Monday.
For deliveries to the US, we ship your order from Point Roberts, WA*. In compliance with US customs regulations, however, all US orders over $800.00 are shipped from Canada via Canada Post, so that they can clear US customs in Seattle, WA. Allow approximately two weeks for the order to arrive.
For Delivery to Canada we ship your order from Vancouver, BC by Canada post. Please allow 3 to 10 business days (excluding weekends and holidays) for delivery within Canada.
Delivery to International countries: We will contact you to verify your shipping information when we receive an order from an international address. Until the information is verified by the customer, we will hold the order. Any additional import duties, customs or brokerage fees are the responsibility of the customer.
* COVID19 special note - during the pandemic we are shipping US orders from Canada, orders are still delivered by USPS but ship from Vancouver, BC.
If you wish to return an item, please contact us within thirty days of receiving your order at email@example.com. Please indicate your name, order number and the reason for your return. After receiving your request for a return, we will contact you. For your security, please ship your return by registered mail, retaining your receipt in case shippment goes missing.
