Regarding Shipping: 

We ship to the United States, Canada, and all other countries except the UK.

We are unfortunately not able to ship to the UK at this time due to tax reasons. If you live in the UK and would like to purchase our products, we are happy to ship to friends or family who live anywhere else in Europe, Canada, or the US, who could possibly forward a package on to you. 

We ship using USPS and UPS, and shipping usually takes between 3 and 7 days. Please keep in mind that fulfillment times vary depending on season - we hand pack all orders and take them across the border to the US in order to ship them out, so your package may not ship for several days after you order. Current estimated shipping times are found on each product page. 

Shipping outside of Canada and the US can be pricey and take longer than 7 days. We do take a small loss on shipping on most international orders, so please rest assured, shipping is less than cost on international orders.


Regarding the Cradle to Cross Wreath: 

How do I use my wreath? 

The wreath is designed to be used in whatever way supports your family as you contemplate and celebrate Christ's birth, life, death, and resurrection. You can use a single candle that travels around the wreath as you count down to birthdays, Christmas, or Easter, or you can use multiple candles or a mixture of tapers and tealights, depending on your desired aesthetic. Please see our suggested use guide for more information. 

What size candles does the wreath use? 

The wreath is designed for 3/4 inch candles. We are currently out of stock of candles and hope to have more by spring. Amazon and Etsy both have good options depending on your desired aesthetic. 

What if my candles are too big? 

If you find that your candles are a bit too big, or that you want to size 7/8 inch candles to fit the wreath, you can either shave down the bottom of the candles or dip the bottom inch or so in boiling water in order to melt off a thin, uniform layer of wax. 

Where can I find a link for the Names of Jesus Advent Devotional? 

A link to download our new Advent Devotional can be found on the wreath product page. The devotional will be available for purchase as a hardcopy in the coming weeks. 

Where can I get the tray/Lazy Susan shown in some of the photos?  

A Lazy Susan similar to ours can be found on Amazon here.
