Purchasing Information

I ship to North America, and to most European countries, only. Payment by PayPal is greatly preferred. I do accept money orders, and cashier's cheques; however, due to recent regulations, these modes of payment take time to clear: 30 business days for International orders, 5 bus. days for Ontario orders, and 10 bus. days for Canadian orders from different provinces. I try to keep shipping costs (which the customer pays) to a minimum, using regular air mail. However, I will provide various shipping options to choose from if requested.

PayPal is free to join and send money through, and I've found it incredibly easy and safe to use: your financial information is kept hidden and there is no waiting period. You can pay by instant tranfer or credit card, and their site is visible here: https://www.paypal.com/us/

To order, please contact me at: melanie@valkyria.ca

Please include your location in your email, and I'll be able to quote you the shipping rate for your area.
