Do you ship to my country?
Yes, we ship worldwide! If you can receive mail, we can ship to you.
How much does shipping cost?
Shipping costs vary greatly, depending on what you order and where it is shipped to. The best way to get an exact shipping quote is to go ahead and put things in your shopping cart and begin the check-out process. This will show you the various shipping options and exact costs for your destination. You are not obligated to complete the transaction, so don't worry: you are not being charged until the absolute last step of check-out. All of our orders are shipped with Canada Post, and costs are determined by them, depending on the weight and size of your order and how far it has to travel.
Can you reserve a product for me?
Of course we can. If we have it in stock, we can hold it for you for up to 2 weeks. If a product is out of stock, you can reserve it and we will let you know as soon as it arrives. Just send an email to with the details and your contact information. Please specify which of the stores you would like to pick it up at, or if you would like us to ship it to you.
Can you order a product for me if you don't already carry it?
Sometimes, it depends. If we already carry other products from a certain company, we can probably get another product, depending or their minimum quantities and our interest in carrying that particular product. Send us an email to with the details and your contact information and we will get back to you.
Do you gift wrap?
Absolutely! We offer in-store complimentary wrapping.
For our on-line customers, please specify Gift-Wrapping in the comment section at check-out, as well as any message you would like written on a small gift tag. We will take care of everything for you at no cost.
It is also possible to bring in items purchased at other stores to both of our locations and will gladly wrap them in our stylish wrapping papers for a nominal fee (fees vary depending on the size of the items)
