Dear Friends,


Happy New Year to you all!


We are pleased to report that we'll be here at 317 Adelaide East at least until the Spring. Our curtailed hours will continue in the hopes of allowing us to avoid travelling to and from the shop at the busiest hours, so we'll be here between 10 and 3 weekdays.


There are new restrictions by which we abide. Please see below for details.


The easiest way to contact us is via email. Speaking of which, don't forget to sign up to our newsletter at the bottom of the page if you have not done so already.


For Pick Ups

Customers are no longer allowed to step inside the shop to collect their orders. Instead, you'll have to pay in advance either with credit card over the phone or via e-transfer. You'll then have to alert us to your presence at the door and we'll pass your order out to you.


For Deliveries 

Deliveries will be continuing as usual. Most of the shippers have cleared the delays they were experiencing with the holiday rush, and for the most part Ontario-wide deliveries can be expected in two days. For the rest of Canada it takes a little longer.


Please be safe! Staying at home curled up with a good book is exactly what the doctor orders these days!
