Shipping During the Postal Disruption

We still have no idea what will happen on July 2. Will there be a strike? Will there be a lock-out? Will there be a happy resolution? Like the cat that ate the cheese and sat by the mousehole - we wait with bated breath.

Shipping to the US

To you in the U.S., this means - de nada. Your shipments will go as usual without any delays for the usual flat rate ($7.95 Cdn, about $6.11 US as I type this - about 9 cents less than last week) - shipped from Buffalo - no customs, duties, border fees or delays.

Shipping in Canada

We have options.

Option 1 - Effective immediately - to keep the beads flowing - we are pleased to offer couriered shipping - $11.95 per package. Sorry - no free shipping for the duration of the strike. We can not courier to a PO Box - give us a different address please if that is your situation.

Option 2 - not in a hurry - the usual flat rate of $7.95, and your order will ship after Canada Post resumes operation. We will hold your order and put it in the mail after we know the mail is moving. We are currently holding these orders - if we put them in the mail and the strike happens - who knows when you will get it. You can also contact us and convert your order to courier shipping if this looks like it will drag out.

You are also welcome to pickup or arrange for your own courier. As always - dropping into the store if you are in the area to pick up your order is an option - you might see something else that you like! Please email us to get a time-line on when it will be ready.

Cross your fingers for a good outcome!
