Customer Service

Shipping & Delivery
We use Australia Post e-parcel service.  Flat rate for orders is $9.95 when the total order is less than $100.  Postage is FREE for orders with a total value of $100 or more (excluding postage).
We aim to pack and to send your order within two working days of your payment being cleared.  
When your parcel is dispatched you will be sent a confirmation e-mail with the tracking number.  This tracking number is scanned during the delivery process and the delivery status information can then be viewed.  The delivery will require a signature on receipt so you may want to put a different delivery address down in the Shipping Information box if you don't want curious little people to know that a present has arrived!  
If you nominate a different delivery address to your billing address (you may not want someone in your house to know we've sent a parcel to their house or the purchase may be a gift for someone else and you want to send it straight to them), we will send your order without an invoice or packing slip so that no-one, other than you, knows how much you spent.
Estimated delivery times are:
Canberra and surrounds: next business day
Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane: 2 - 3 business days
Adelaide, Hobart, Perth, Darwin and regional centres: 5 - 7 business days.
These are estimated delivery times based on information provided by Australia Post.  However, actual delivery times are outside our control.  If you are unsure about whether an order will arrive to the final destination in time please contact us and we will work with you to try and get your order delivered in your timeframe.  If you live in Canberra or the surrounding region, you are most welcome to collect orders from our at store at 22 Colbee Court, Phillip or to authorise another person to collect the order on your behalf. 
Packaging
We are small in size but big on the need to minimise our environmental footprint and will pack orders into boxes recycled from suppliers where possible.  While austere on the outside, rest assured that the contents of the box will more than compensate and, if you have selected the gift wrapping option, will be delightfully wrapped. 
We really would love you to pick the gift wrapping option.  All proceeds received for gift wrapping both in-store and through the webstore are donated to Marymead, a not for profit organisation that has been helping local families and children for nearly 50 years. Every year this contribution helps Marymead to provide essential services to many needy children in our community.
