Frequently Asked Questions

We are a seasonal curated subscription box and e-commerce retail store with a mission to love people, inspire community, and promote small town adventures throughout British Columbia. We believe every town has a tale and our goal is to share those stories with others. We pair every purchase with an act of kindness, with a goal of creating a ripple effect so strong, and so powerful, that it can be felt in every small town across the province.

We offer two types of subscription boxes, a one time purchase and a seasonal subscription. Our seasonal subscription boxes will automatically bill you every three months on the first of the month, but don't worry, you can pause, renew, or cancel at any time! Each box features a different regional district, so no two boxes will be identical.

Each box includes 5-7 locally made items from a specific regional district in British Columbia, and are packed with our custom hand-cut crinkle paper made from community newspapers. All items are made in small towns with populations under 45,000 people and each purchase is paired with an act of kindness.

All boxes ship the first week of March, June, September, and December. We ship all boxes via Canada Post and send you a tracking number once your order has been packed.

We offer free delivery in the North Okanagan and a free pickup option for those travelling through Vernon and want to meet up at a coffee shop instead.

Individual items ship, or are delivered, within 2 business days.

Our seasonal subscription boxes sell for $65.00 + PST and shipping. You will be billed every 3 months on the first of the month. We will send you an email 3 days prior to billing and you'll have the option to pause, skip, or cancel at any time prior to billing.

For Seasonal Subscription Boxes, you will be billed every 3 months on the first of the month. We will send you an email 3 days prior to billing and you'll have the option to pause, skip, or cancel at any time prior to billing.

Each box includes 5-7 hand made items from various small town entrepreneurs within the same regional district of British Columbia. Items may include housewares and décor, beauty and personal care, gourmet, accessories, stationary, and artwork. The combination of products will change each quarter to reflect the values of the featured region and the season.

All subscription boxes and items sold through our online store are final sale and exchanges are not accepted at this time. For more information please read our Terms of Service. If any of your items are damaged or missing please contact us within 7 business days of receiving your order and we will work with you to find a solution.

You have the option to change your subscription preferences as needed, we won't judge. You will need to log into your account page on our store and select My Subscriptions. You can also email us at any time for support at info@townshipsandtales.ca

Our goal is to create a ripple of kindness so strong, and so powerful, that it can be felt across this province. With every purchase made, no matter the dollar value, we commit to serving the North Okanagan through intentional acts of kindness. This could include buying a stranger's coffee, yard work for seniors, free mechanic work, or even fixing a leaking roof!

Every order packed contains a handwritten thank you card outlining what act of kindness was done on your behalf. Learn more about what we do and why HERE

Yes! Our boxes and labels are recyclable and our crinkle paper is made from repurposed community newspapers. Did you know our crinkle paper makes excellent mulch or compost in your garden?
