Please note; you may be charged for local import duties and customs charges on the arrival of the goods in your country, this is out of our control.

Orders are processed within 2 to 4 business days. We ship by Canada Post. If you choose the expedited shipping options the packages are delivered within 3 to 6 days in Canada, 5 to 7 days in the United States, and 6 to 10 days for international destinations.

Otherwise, shipping costs are calculated by weight. In the shopping cart you will find a calculator that you can use to estimate the shipping costs (by putting in your zip code) before final payment.
Why is it that your shipping costs are so high?
Well, we deliver with Canada Post, and their prices are high. Furthermore, delivery costs are calculated according to weight, so the delivery of ceramics, for example, will be more expensive than fabric products.
Do you charge taxes?
If you order from Canada, federal and provincial taxes will be added after you have given your shipping address. If you order from outside of Canada, there will be no added taxes. Please, note that for international shipping, it is possible that you have to pay customs fees.
How are the objects protected during shipping?
The goods are shipped in a rigid corrugated box. If the item is fragile, it is wrapped in tissue paper, bubble film or kraft paper. Items are surrounded by cushioning material (bubble film or kraft paper) on the top, bottom and sides of the inner container to limit movement and protect the item. The shipping box is closed with shipping tape. If appropriate, a "FRAGILE" label appears on top and on one side.
In what currency are your prices?
All prices are in Canadian dollars.

The return costs are your responsibility. Returned items must be in perfect condition. For more details you can access our Return Policy here.
