Change in Shipping Courier

For those of you who select Shipping as your method to receive your online order this note is for YOU!   When I re-opened my online store at the beginning stages of COVID I was using Canada Post as the courier. Most of you know or heard how backed up they were with deliveries when they reduced staffing. During this time I wanted to test out and find a faster way to get your order to you asap while the rest of the world finds a way to operate the "new normal".   I changed shipping methods from Canada Post to Swift Post June 30th and have made the decision to go back with Canada Post. I have taken your...

At the time, he lived in a really cool studio apartment in Toronto while attending school. I went to visit...

I can honestly admit, as much as I wish I can do it all- I simply cannot which is why (before COVID) I had my online store closed about 70% of the time so I...

Pick-Up Location Transition

I would first off, like to thank every single one of you for keeping me busy during these times. As businesses go through some major changes and decision making, I need to also make some changes to better serve you guys! With that being said, I have been experiencing a tremendous volume of orders (more than what I was used to when I've had my online store open in the past). As the only maker, business owner, supply runner, email admin, photographer, website designer, order packer, and the list goes on to my several job titles... I have found it extremely hard to find the time in order to make the products that need to be replenished (and that's a little...
