NEW! Shop online 24/7 with The Apple Cart

Last night we stopped counting at 150+ requests for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™  since the Alberta Stockist (distributor) suddenly discontinued their services last week and we announced we would be doing our best to get everyone their orders.  We have now signed on to become a Stockist with Annie Sloan/Annie Sloan Unfolded and are working hard behind the scenes in anticipation of the first major shipment of paint arriving next week.

With so many loyal customers patiently waiting, we knew we'd have to move fast and efficiently to offer good options to people without creating mayhem at the Boutique.

Effective today our online shop
is ready for business! 

Because of the speed with which we've launched this option, it admittedly is a bit clunky with customers having to choose their shipping option on each item rather than a complete order, but we will improve that as soon as we can! Just select the same shipping method on each of your items so that we know what to do at this end for a quick and trouble-free process. The important thing is:

we went with security over pretty 

so that all of your information is protected -- and we will not share it with anyone!

We want to get your paint and accessories to you as soon as possible, so here is the low-down on shopping with the Apple Cart, which consist of online shopping options for Annie Sloan products, Miss Mustard Seed products and the Jewelry line.

Here is what the Annie Sloan shop looks like:

In this example, the customer has selected to have their order shipped with Canada Post COD.  You can also have it shipped with FedEx Ground Services or choose to pick your items up at Apple Box Boutique.

If you choose to pick up in-store, your reserved, pre-paid item(s) will be available the day following your order (when placed prior to 3:00 PM) and will be held for three days.*

After you've filled your Apple Cart, click the Check Out or PayPal button to make payment.  You will receive an email message confirming your purchase and your order will be processed in 2 - 5 days.  Depending on where you are located, shipping is generally 3 - 10 days.

It's as easy as that!

Online purchasing is available for both Annie Sloan and Miss Mustard Seed's (MMS) paint and supplies!  Not to worry about switching between the two -- just click Add to Cart in either shopping page and then pay for your Miss Mustard Seed items and your Annie Sloan selections all at once.

You will also see Jewelry as an option for purchase online.  This will take you to a secure external website where you can view the catalog and access the online system for Simply You, the company that makes all the pretty, sparkly jewelry pieces, which will be shipped to you separately.

Now all that's left is for you to

get to The Apple Cart and start shopping!

All orders are first come, first served, and with this improved service we are happy to make shopping with Apple Box Boutique quicker and easier for all of our valued customers.

Have a great day!

Apple Box Boutique
*For Boutique pick-up, your reserved, pre-paid item(s) will be available the day following your order when made by 3:00 PM. Orders processed after 3:00 PM will be available two days following your order. They will be held for three days.  Please see website for additional information.
