We are a very small team here at Fia Fia, and we unfortunately don't have the capacity to run the shop during the day while answering phone calls. However, we are very quick & responsive over email, and are happy to help you with whatever you need!

Sadly, our store is not easily accessible for people with physical disabilities. We have railings on all the steps, but there are a total of four steps to get up to our front door, which may be difficult or not possible for some. We're working hard to get lots of high quality photos of our products up on the site for those who can't come into our shop. And we hope to move into an accessible space in the future. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

We are within a short walking distance from bus stops along Routes #2 and #3 (North Street), #4 and #90 (Windsor Street), as well as #8, #7A, and #7B (Robie Street).

There is plenty of free daytime street parking on both sides of Summit Street.

We have four warm potlights in our ceiling, and two low-hanging lamps over a central table. We try to keep our music low-key and at a comfortable volume. If you feel you need the lights or the music turned down, please don't hesitate to ask. We are more than happy to accommodate!

We do not have a washroom for customer use at the moment. However, there is a public washroom at the Sobey's right across the street.

Returns & Exchages

We offer returns and exchanges on all of our products within 14 days of purchase, as long as the items are unopened and in perfect condition. We also offer exchanges or store credit on unused yarn, as long as it is unopened and in perfect condition. Learn more about our returns here.

If you're not happy with your order, you can return it to us for a refund or exchange. The order must be posted by trackable mail within 7 days of receiving it. Unfortunately, because we are a small business, we do expect the customer to pay for the return shipping costs. Once we recieve the order, we'll fulfill the refund or exchange. Learn more here.

We actually don't use paper receipts at our shop. If you don't have your emailed receipt, we may be able to find your purchase in our system based on the purchase date, if you remember it. Online orders should always have a virtual trail, as you'll get sent multiple confirmation emails.

Shipping & Deliveries

Free expedited shipping is available for our Canadian and US customers on orders over $150 CAD before tax. The free shipping will be automatically applied during your checkout. This is combinable with our first-time purchase discount as well.

We offer a flat rate expedited shipping rate of $8 to residents of Nova Scotia, and $12 for the rest of Canada.

Express shipping is calculated at checkout, and depends on the overall size and weight of the order.

Shipping to the USA costs anywhere from $8 - $35 CAD depending on the weight of the package and the shipping method. US shipping is calculated at checkout, and you can estimate shipping costs in your cart.

International shipping is calculated at checkout and depends on the destination country, parcel weight, and shipping method.

You'll be able to choose your shipping method at checkout, and you will be able to see an estimated timeframe there.

Standard shipping within Canada and the US normally takes 3-9 business days. Express shipping normally takes 2-3 business days. International shipping times are calculated at checkout.

Please note that these are only estimates, and there can be shipping delays.

We offer in-store pickup, which you can opt for during checkout.

You'll get an email when your order is ready for pickup, and once you do, feel free to come by anytime during our open hours to grab your order!

If you're a person who can't use the stairs to our store, please let us know in your order notes and we'll pass along our phone number so that we can meet you curbside with your order.
