For No-Contact Pick-Up: Let us know about when you’d be coming. When you arrive, simply park in our small parking lot behind the shop and call us at 626-577-2035 from your car. We’ll put your order right outside the back door and you may retrieve it AFTER we close our door.

Shipping – A flat fee will be applied starting at $9, depending on the items. 

*Local Delivery – (Only for residences in Pasadena, South Pasadena, Altadena, San Marino, & Highland Park, AND a minimum purchase of $75 before tax.)

If you absolutely cannot make it here to pick up your order for reasons such as: lack of transportation, health reasons, conflicting schedules (which I’d be happy to work with you.) etc, we can deliver it to your home at your request. 

For the moment, this local delivery service has no extra fees, only location and minimum purchase requirements. However, this may change in the future depends on the volume of requests. Thank you for your understanding.
