Note: Canada Only ––  Sales made in USD will be refunded in USD.

Losses due to exchange rate differences and foreign transaction fees - are not refundable

ART FAIRS: Purchases made in-person at my art fairs/festivals can only be returned during the art fair / festival. This is due to the sales commissions that I pay the show organizers at the end of the sales event.
