shipping & returns

Please note: recent changes from USPS and postal services overseas mean I can no longer send postcards with letter mail. I am now required to use a customs form which has significantly raised the cost of delivery. I am very sorry about the rise in shipping fees but this is completely out of my control. Not to mention the cost of fuel has raised shipping prices everywhere.The shipping amounts you see are not inflated. I make no extra money on shipping. It is extremely frustrating for all of us.
Thank you for understanding, Lisa.

All ila & alice items will be shipped within 1-3 business
days after payment has been received.
All ila & alice items will be shipped thru Canada Post
unless otherwise indicated.

There is no tracking number provided by Canada Post for small packet air service to the US or overseas.
How long it will take for you to receive your ila & alice
item is based on the estimated time of arrival that
Canada Post tells us.

Standard Post in Canada estimates 5-10 business
days from when order is shipped.
United States:
Standard shipping to the USA estimates 
5-10 business days from when order is shipped.

International:  UK, Australia, Europe & Japan: 
International orders will be shipped only through
Canada Post International Air Post and have an
expected arrival of about 7-21 business days from
date of shipment. My experience has been most
parcels take about one week. Due to VERY long
shipping times I do NOT ship surface post.
