$4.50 Shipping on Single CDs/DVDs
Single item orders that can ship as regular mail, i.e. are slim enough (max. thickness of DVD case) are usually shipped all over Canada for a flat fee of $4.50. Automatically applied at check-out.

$4.50 Shipping on 2-3 Books
Very slim books (especially children's) and other items (stickers, badges, baboons etc.) are available in combinations of 2-3 for shipment all over Canada for a flat fee of $4.50. Automatically calculated at check-out. If a book is not falling into this offer, no matter how low the cost, its likely too thick to go by Regular Mail [where thickness of item, and not weight, is the main criteria for a package being accepted as "letter-class" mail at the post office]. 

Xpresspost
For 1-2 day delivery, call us or email us. Outside of Ontario and Quebec, the system automatically allows you to order with Xpresspost option.

Shipping Outside of North America
Due to the extreme increase in cost of shipping small packets outside of North America over the past three years, shipping overseas is no longer available from our web-site. We suggest you look for online bookstores in the United States to order similar products. Otherwise, email us, and we shall provide you with the estimated postage cost for the item you are interested in purchasing.

Express Overnight Shipping
In Canada, overnight shipping is prohibitively expensive. We do not provide that service.

Gift Message
When shipping gifts to friends and family, we are more than happy to include a message from you, nicely printed on a postcard. Include your message in the Comments box during check-out. 

Shipping Turnaround
It USED to be super-rare for an order not to ship within 1-2 business days. But with the closing of our retail store in 2018, shipping can be same day as before or may take 2-3 days if a trip has to be made to the storage to retrieve some of the items in your order. 

We do strive to ship fast, is what online mail-order bookstores are supposed to do.

We Use Canada Post for all our Shipping
Generally it takes 1-2 business days to deliver within Ontario and Quebec, and 4-5 business days everywhere else in Canada. NOTE: Like most Government agencies, Canada Post is closed on Saturdays and Sundays, as well as most statutory holidays.
