International Shipping Information for Canadian Customers

We use four options in shipping to Canadian addresses via USPS.

1) First Class Mail: we can ship up to 4 pounds by First Class Mail, often at a considerable savings over Priority Mail. For example, we recently sent a padded envelope weighing 1 pound, 2 oz, for under $16. The best part is that First Class Mail arrives nearly as fast as Priority Mail.

2) Padded Flat Rate Envelope: this costs $23.95 less our free shipping credit of $6.80. This envelope with hold one crinkle cotton pants or two crinkle cotton shorts or two (and maybe three) gauze blouses.

3) Medium International Flat Rate Box: this costs $45.95 less our free shipping credit of $13.45. This box will hold 3-5 crinkle cotton items or 4-6 cotton gauze items.

4) Large International Flat Rate Box: This costs $59.95 less our free shipping credit of $18.75 This box holds up to 8-10 items.

Most orders that are submitted will automatically show an $8 shipping charge. The balance of the shipping charge that we pay represents the free shipping credit. For large orders, we reserve the right to determine the best option to use in shipping your merchandise, and to bill you for any additional shipping charges.
