Dear Friends,


We hope everyone is safe and healthy!


We will be closed for the Easter weekend from Friday, April 2 - Sunday, April 4.

Open again Monday, April 5 at 10 a.m.


As yet we do not have any plans to open up the shop for browsing. The easiest way to stay up-to-date is to sign up for our newsletter. You can do so via the form at the bottom of this page. Our newsletter goes out every second week, and includes staff recommendations as well as information on upcoming events.


The easiest way to contact us is via email, as we continue to work short hours so as to avoid travelling during rush hour. We're at the store between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. during the week.


For Pick Ups

Customers are allowed to step inside the shop to collect their orders. We do still welcome payment in advance to facilitate pickups and to maintain safety protocols. No more than 3 customers are allowed inside the shop at any given time.


For Deliveries 

Deliveries will be continuing as usual. For the most part Ontario-wide deliveries can be expected in two days via Canpar. Within the city, most deliveries can be expected either same day or next day. 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!
