Please allow 2 weeks for past boxes, items, and books to ship out from our store. As we only ship twice per month. We ship priority mail which is normally 2-3 days delivery however with usps covid delays it is taking up to a week in the US for packages to arrive via priority mail. Canada has taken up to 4 weeks and International orders have seen delays to 6 weeks. Please keep this in mind when ordering. We can not do anything about the USPS delays. Please do not order if this is not acceptable to you as we are only able to preform bookish miracles not postal miracles.
