Hello! We are in full on holiday mode over here. Seems early, right?


It's not! Because we are going out of town from December 7-December 16. 


What does that mean for you?


It means in order to get your gift from our place to its destination, you'll need to order by December 5 so we can ship by December 7th.


We'll be back on the 16th, so if you are local or on the West Coast, we can ship out on the 17th or have orders ready for pickup up until December 24th, but please order ASAP so we can have everything ready to go when we get back!


If you order now, but don't want your package sent out until December 7th, just leave us a note when you check out and we'll be happy to hold the order and make your treats on December 6th.


Thanks for all of your support! We really appreciate it.


Please read before ordering:


Four things you should definitely know and then a very long winded, rather tedious but important note about shipping:


  • Our baked items and chocolates are fresh and made-to-order without preservatives, which means they are best enjoyed upon arrival. If you aren't planning on eating them right away, they will last longer in the fridge or the freezer.


  • Since we make everything to order, it will take a couple of days to make it before we ship it out. If you need something urgently, please leave a note when you order and we'll do our best to expedite.


  • Everything we make is made in a kitchen handling known allergens such as nuts, milk products, wheat, eggs.


  • All sales are final since this is a food product custom made by order, but if there are any problems at all, please let us know and we'll make it right. <3


Please read this very long note about shipping, especially in hot weather:


First of all, if you are in the Seattle area, we offer local pick-up on Mercer Island.


We ship USPS Priority, which is 2-3 day mail depending on where you are. We ship from Seattle, so if you are in, say, Florida, it’s more like 3 days. Once our lovingly wrapped packages leave our kitchen, we have no control over what USPS does with them. 


Shipping is set at $16.00 flat rate per order, not per item. We don't charge for handling. Castiron also charges a convenience fee. If you are buying an item for $12 you’ll be charged about $30. If you buy 2 items for $24, you’ll be charged about $45. It’s weird, I know. I wish I had more control over shipping costs. We’ve reduced the price as low as we can without sacrificing ingredient quality.


Shipping to Canada is always more than $16! If you are in Canada and want to know exactly how much it's going to be, please contact me at marcenetmercantile@gmail.com *before* you order so we can work out the details.


We ship Monday-Thursday during the fall/winter and on Mondays and Tuesdays during the summer. Chocolates (especially milk chocolate due to high cocoa butter content) will melt just sitting in your hand, so imagine what your lovely, hand crafted chocolates would look like after a weekend in some warehouse.


That said, shipping chocolates in spring/summer or anytime to the Deep South is kind of a crapshoot. I’ve had chocolates arrive in perfect condition to Florida in 90 degree heat and I’ve had chocolates arrive in less than perfect condition to Texas during a cold snap. Again: once we ship to you, we’ve done everything we can to make sure your items arrive safely. After that, it’s Mother Nature and the USPS.


If you need your items sooner, or you need to make 100% sure there are no melting issues, please contact us at marcenetmercantile@gmail.com and we’ll send you a quote for ice packaging and overnight shipping.

Our products are made on equipment that also produce products that contain the following ingredients: Milk, Eggs, Wheat, Fish, Shellfish, Tree Nuts, Peanuts, Soy Beans, Sesame
