COVID-19: Our Service updates

Shé:kon sewakwé:kon, ayénwens tsi sewata'karíte.

In light of COVID-19, and as mothers, employers and firefighters in our home community of Six Nations we understand it is imperative to update our current service policies & practices to uphold the safety of our customers and community. Please read the updates we have implemented for Sapling & Flint doing business moving forward below:

 

OUR GALLERY: Our flagship location, the Sapling & Flint Gallery, will remain closed. Our reopening date is not yet scheduled but will align with the re-opening date of businesses in Six Nations of the Grand River. Our community businesses have currently been ordered by both elected council and our Confederacy Chiefs' Council to remain closed to the public.

 

OUR ONLINE SERVICE: We are proud to maintain our full-service online store. You can shop Sapling & Flint on our website at www.saplingandflint.ca or our shoppable social media platforms on Facebook and Instagram (@SaplingAndFlint). 

 

SHIPPING UPDATES: Canada Post remains our fully committed postal service for all Sapling & Flint purchases, and we continue to ship worldwide. 3 important updates:

1. We will be limiting the shipping of all regular post orders to Friday. This means if you make a regular post purchase during any day of the week, it will be given to Canada Post for shipping on the following friday. 

2. Orders made with upgraded shipping can expect to be shipped regularly (often this is next day)

3. Please note we cannot guarantee fast overturns and upgraded shipping on notebooks, clutches, totes, anything in our Accessories Collection as we drop ship these items from our local printing partner. We need to respect the workload and fulfillment capacities they are working under currently. All other products, silver & gold, are proudly made in-studio at the Sapling & Flint Gallery in Six Nations of the Grand River Territory.

We would like to thank our patrons for your continued support and for ensuring your part in stopping the communal spread of COVID-19. Please check back here for any additional updates and be sure to add yourself to our e-subscriber list for all latest releases and announcements for the Sapling & Flint brand!

 

UPDATE (April 25th, 2020) - We have received notice that many postal delivery services are currently experiencing "holiday-level" shipping; with many people across Canada and the USA currently shopping online at all time levels.
