    I was wondering if I could order a Canadian Farmers Almanac 2021 and a Daily diary. I live in Italy, can pay by credit card. The items are for my mum who lives in Weston but has not been able to go out much .
    Thanks Ana

      Hi Anastasia,
      Sorry for the late reply. I think I actually spoke to your mom a couple of weeks ago but sadly we no longer receive these. I could see if one of our suppliers carries it but we haven’t had them for a number of years now. Shoppers Drug across from us was another option that I suggested if someone is going there for prescriptions. I have Daily Diaries but not sure what kind of layout she would prefer. Best to email me directly: squibbs@on.aibn.com. Or, if you are Facebook, you could send a message through our page: https://www.facebook.com/SquibbsStationers

    Hi there. I’m looking for a specific book and was referred to speak to Suri by a friend. I was wondering if you sold a book called Revolution (The Legend of Korra #1), by Erica David. It should be a novelization of a series of comics.

    I’m also looking for the sequel is Endgame.

    Thank you.

      Hi Katherine,
      Sorry for the delay in answering – I didn’t get a notice that there was a message here. I checked on both titles but they aren’t available anymore that I can see. She has written other books but those 2 are no longer showing as in stock. There are other Legend of Korra books but by a different author. Let me know if I can help otherwise. Best to email me directly: squibbs@on.aibn.com or call 416-241-5801.
      Suri @ Squibbs
