Frequently Asked Questions
Where do you source your Vintage Items?
Everywhere! I'm always on the lookout for unique, quality pieces wherever I am. In my experience, treasures pop up in the most unexpected places. I scour garage sales, Value Village, Goodwill, Kijiji, antique stores, farm markets, auctions, estate sales...I have even found discarded antique clay bottles at the bottom of the river!
Can I hire you for a design consultation?
Presently, I am not taking on new projects or hourly consultations. I am committed to current design projects until the end of 2021 and won't be considering any new ones until further down the road.
How often do you get new products in?
Weekly. Our suppliers are very diverse. We source from as local as 'down the road', all the way to Europe and everything in between. We source new, handmade and vintage. This allows us to keep inventory coming through our shop quite regularly.
Do you offer wholesale pricing?
Very soon I'd like to be able to supply some of our products to retailers, at wholesale pricing. In the beginning it may only be a handful of our products, but if you are interested in purchasing something for resale, email us at email@example.com and we'll chat.
Is everything that you sell in the shop in Elora, also available online?
Yes, all of the products that we offer in our Shop in Elora are also available for purchase online. However, not everything is available to ship. Please read the product page for shipping details. If it's marked "Studio Pick Up Only" or "Not Available For Flat Rate Shipping" then it will either require you to arrange shipping, or you can ask us to provide you with a separate quotation for shipping.
Your shop smells amazing! What am I smelling?
Funny that this is on the list of FAQ's but we love getting this question! It usually prompts Lisa and I to start running around the store and sniffing everything looking for the source. Here's what we think it is: a blend of our beeswax products, lavender, citrus essential oils that we use for cleaning and in the diffuser, eucalyptus steam tabs and just general happiness :)
Will you ever ship worldwide?
Yes, we are presently working on this and hope to be able to offer it soon! Shipping is hard.
Where and how do you find such unique pieces?
In my experience, the best way to find 'unique', is to stay away from big box suppliers. I look for small, family owned businesses or artisans instead. My selections are guided by a particular sense of what I would want to have in my own home, and I don't deviate from that.
How long have you been open?
LemonTree + Co. Interiors began as an interior design service in 2004. After years of residential design, I introduced our online shop in 2017. Then on June 28th, 2019 our brick and mortar shop opened it's doors for the first time only to be (temporarily) closed 9 months later due to COVID19.
How are you responding to COVID19?
LemonTree + Co. Interiors has closed it's shop doors to the public for the duration of the threat of the virus, or until the government approves the reopening of non-essential business. Our online shop is open 24/7 and we are offering contactless pick up and free porch delivery to local patrons. Our shipping to Canada and US remains unaffected at this time.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Puppies. You can pay in puppies. If you don’t have puppies, we will consider...
Credit Card (we use Square as our provider)
Offline Payment options such as cash, cheque, e-transfer to
*Please note that when paying offline, your items don't come out of our inventory. This means that until your payment has been received, the product remains in the store for others to purchase. This can be an issue particularly with our one of a kind products.
