Out of the Ordinary prides itself on being the oldest owner operated miniature marketplace in Canada. It is our policy that when we get a deal...YOU get a deal too! It pays to compare prices, and we welcome you to compare ours. We know we won't ALWAYS be the lowest, but we can promise that you will get the most fair price we can offer, EVERY TIME. For our Canadian customers, please note that you won't have any hidden "handling fees", customs or brokerage fees added to your order.
For your convenience, as you browse our site we know the choices can be overwhelming, so we added a "wish list" feature where you can store things for later purchase. You have the option to add or delete items at will, keep the list for yourself or pass it along to friends a relatives who may wish to surprise you with your hearts desire. Of course if you just can't live without something, simply put it in your shopping cart immediately and we will ship it to you promptly. We like instant satisfaction too.
All prices apply to in stock items only! Due to the constantly dropping value of the Canadian Dollar, new inventory is priced accordingly!
Due to the current probable work stoppage by Canada Post, we will be in Europe sourcing new miniatures to tempt you from July 9-23. No orders will be shipped during this time, though we will be happy to hold your orders until our return, when they will be shipped promptly.
Browsing may be hazardous to your willpower, come in and live dangerously!

We know that nothing replaces the thrill of browsing in an actual shop, but feel we carry more inventory than most of the miniature shops around. However, we still strongly support Brick and Mortar Shops, which are usually the first place people are introduced to the wonderful world of miniatures. If we don't have it, please, check out the DMMA website at www.ministores.org
