Canadian Sales Temporarily Suspended


We’ve had to stop selling our products in Canada temporarily until we can find a new way to ship our goods across the border.

Our warehouse in Canada has decided to drop us as a customer to focus on other aspects of their business. John is hard at work trying to get a replacement service lined up. Because we are in the middle of the holiday season, however, it’s impossible to really get a shipping service’s attention until January.

We apologize for this and hope we can get it resolved quickly. In the meantime, Lee Valley Tools carries our full line of books.

    I live close enough to the border, maybe I should just run some books and postcards up and put them in the Canadian post office.

    I’m fairly certain The Unplugged Woodshop would be happy to carry your books-; )
    ( or at least help out with the smuggling and the bootlegging… )

      Indeed! That would be awesome!


    • Hey Tom,

      Thanks so much for the generous offer! John and I are getting together to hash out our options today. We might be able to ship FedEx to Canada direct from its fulfillment facility in Indiana.

      If that doesn’t make sense, we’ll definitely reach out to you guys.

    I am in Canada. Something I can do…?

    Just like Canadian thanksgiving, Christmas comes a month before the American holiday. We are already in the new year. This shouldn’t be a problem 😉

    For a minute I was worried they wouldn’t be available in Canada at all.

    Ordering through LV is my usual way. I get the book and some instant gratification.


  8. We do that though our shipper, either UPS or Fedex.

    The map dates to c.1835 and is part of a small-format engraved atlas set covering the then known world. Note that “Alaska” is still Russian (Seward bought it for the US in 1867); Greenland is shown as dual-occupied (presumably Denmark [west coast] and Norway [east coast] although Norway had largely abandoned its colonies by this time; the 1831 map version showed Greenland as British, a notable error as they never made a claim there); and the NW Passage area and north Greenland are still unmapped (initial mapping continued through the mid-1850’s and the passage wasn’t crossed by ship until 1903-1905 by Amudsen’s team in the Gjøa).

    Talk to Rob Lee and see if you can bring your stuff through Canadian custom via LVT warehouse in Ogdensburg, NY. He like LAP.

    I too am in Canada. If you think business is problematic now, just wait till your Combover-In-Chief decides to put a bullet in NAFTA….
