December 12, 2018 UPDATE Shipping deadlines for pre-holiday delivery have passed except for Canada (the 13th) but it appears packages are arriving in the usual amount of time (1 to 8 business days depending on where you are). In other words, no noticeable delays despite what Canada Post management claimed. Let’s hear it for our posties! And yours, of course, since they carry your package the final leg of its journey.
November 28, 2018 UPDATE Canada Post service has resumed and normal shipping is in effect. We anticipate there may be some slow downs at the post office in the coming first few days but things should otherwise be on schedule.

Brrrrrrrrr cold weather has arrived here!
Please be aware that Canada Post and CUPW (Canadian Union of Postal Workers) negotiations continue as do CUPW’s rotating strikes. Flock of Tea Cosy’s Canadian orders are currently affected but international orders are not and continue using available alternate shipping methods.
International orders continue to be shipped using an alternate method although shipping is done twice a week instead of daily. This means the posted holiday deadlines continue to apply. Happy shopping!
Shipping to the USA – deadline Tuesday, December 11
Shipping to Europe & Australia/New Zealand – deadline Monday, December 3
The rotating strikes across the country are affecting some orders so it’s a bit of a crap shoot as to whether orders will arrive in a timely manner. At today’s date we continue to ship to Canadian addresses, but will reassess the situation next week.
We wish both parties success in their negotiations!
