Our products are handmade in small batches.

Between the Dec. 15 to Jan. 1 holiday season, you can anticipate delays of additional days due to the holidays. All packages ship via USPS and Canada Post, with international packages transferred to the national postal service of the recipient's country. Please email us at if you have any questions or requests.
Depending on your location, shipping times can vary. In Canada, regular post is 6-10 business days. Shipping to the U.S. is generally 6-12 business days. Please note, we cannot guarantee delivery by a specific date, and shipping time estimates provided are only a guideline. During the holiday season there are frequently delays in the postal system, and while we will make every effort to fill your order in time, we recommend placing gift orders as early as possible to ensure sufficient transit time.

If your package has not arrived after the posted shipping date, please look for a notice of attempted delivery—packages sometimes cannot be delivered if you are not home and might need to be picked up from a post office. We would also suggest looking around to see if it was left nearby where you are expecting it, and checking with other members of your household. Sometimes a package is marked as delivered while still in transit, so sometimes it may be another day before it is actually dropped off.
For more information for U.S. customers, contact your local post office or call USPS at 1.800.222.1811.
For customers in Canada, please contact Canada Post.
If you have chosen tracked shipping to the USA, USPS tracking can sometimes show a package as delivered before it actually reaches you. Usually, this happens when a package is scanned while going into a delivery truck but isn't actually dropped at its final location yet. When this happens, the package generally reaches its final destination within 1-3 delivery days after the date it is noted as being delivered. This is common. Please connect with your local post office.
Once we have shipped a package, we can no longer control its location or make specific requests for delivery/re-delivery. As the recipient, you have the ability to make requests for delivery that we as the sender cannot. We will provide what information we are able to, but it is ultimately your right as the recipient to contact Canada POst, USPS or your national postal carrier to arrange delivery.
