Postage and Shipping

We aim to process orders on the next working day after your payment has cleared.

Domestic Orders

Both our shipping methods are simple and safe.  Most parcels are sent via Australia Post e-parcel, allowing you to track orders from placement to delivery.  Where possible, we have included the shipping costs at checkout.

For some larger items, notably baskets and some paintings, we use a reputable courier company.  If a shipping cost does not appear at checkout, we will contact you shortly with a quote, prior to dispatch.

International Orders

Standard sized orders are shipped with Australia Post’s e-parcel at a flat rate of $44.50.  Please note that paintings are dispatched ‘unstretched’ and rolled in a postal tube. 

Certain items, such as large and delicate pieces, are not eligible for this service and require a custom solution.  If a shipping cost does not appear at checkout, we will contact you with a quotation, prior to the item being dispatched.


How long does delivery take?

Please allow 1-3 working days within Australia for standard parcels – larger items may take longer.

Please allow 10-14 working days for international parcels, subject to destination and delivery method. 

All orders require a signature upon receipt.  Unfortunately, we are unable to redirect orders once items have been dispatched.
