FREQENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

GENERAL

Where are you located?


Currently we are working out of our home office in downtown Toronto which is the same as our pick-up location.




Do you have a physcial store?


Currently, we had to give up our space on Bloor due to the restrictions, but we are looking to set up shop again as soon as possible!




What products do you carry?


We hope to be the best one-stop-shop for non-consumable products that go by the following criteria: plant-based, cruelty-free, natural, made in Canada, eco-friendly or zero-waste and from small businesses or artisans. Our top sellers are skincare products, but we also carry household cleaning items, household accessories, clothing, jewelry and even oracle cards! The more we grow, the more we hope to expand and add new items to our shop to better your shopping experience.




Why buy from The Queen V?


Good question! So let's say you love serums from Schmear, soaps from Bridlewood and cleansers from Skin Essence. You could purchase them online from their original sites, but chances are since you will have to purchase them seperately, you'll be paying multiple shipping costs. Not fun. So, we do it for you! We purchase the best items at wholesale cost and bring them into our inventory storage, taking care of the shipping costs for you. You'll notice most of our products are sold at the same rate of their original sellers. That ensures a fair shopping experience for you. You pick and choose your favourite products at their original retails price, and only pay 1 flat shipping rate or pick-up for free (if you're in the area) Good deal huh?! We think so.




You have a Bee in your logo, do your products have any honey or beesewax in them?


No! As we only carry plant-based items, we do not included any that have honey or beesewax in them, as they are produced by bees and should be kept for the bees. The bee logo has multiple meanings. For one, it's the soul animal of our founder (not to be confused with spirit animal, which is an Indigenous term) Also, it goes with the play-on-words of our name: The Queen V....get it? ;)
