Anonymous asked: So I live in Canada and have been obsessing over your water themed curiosity collection but noticed it only ships to the states. If I purchase it, is there any possible way to ship it to Canada, even if I paid extra postage for it?
Hey there! Thank you so much for your interest in that piece. It was a fun one to put together. :)
Unfortunately I don’t ship animal parts internationally. To do so here in the United States I would have to get a license from US Fish & Wildlife Services, pay a user fee for each package, and go through a broker to ship it from an authorized border port. I believe that the average total for all of these fees and shipping generally runs around $200-250 per package.
Wildlife parts includes not only bones, skulls, and furs but also parts from or made with crustaceans, insects, and other invertebrates. So that includes sea shells which are also in that curiosity collection.
Some domestic animal parts can be shipped internationally (so long as they didn’t originate in the wild) but I still usually just stick to US sales for all animal parts.
I can and do ship fossil and mineral specimens internationally though! So if you are interested in any of those specimens in the shop (I’ve got a couple of big trilobites, some fossil shark teeth, jars of fossils from my creek, and so on) I will be glad send them your way!
Thank you again for the interest and I’m sorry I couldn’t be of more help!
