International Shipping

Lookie Lou does ship outside the USA and provides international shipping rates on a case-by-case basis. The following shipping rates and destinations have been established. If you don't see your country listed or you wish to order something outside these weight ranges (which would become clear as you attempt to check out), just email us at with your shipping address and the products you're considering ordering. We will send you a quote as soon as possible. Please be aware that many countries charge customs duty and taxes for goods imported from the US. You, the customer, are responsible for paying duty and taxes, which can often be substantial. We highly recommend locating a duty calculator and estimating your duty before placing an order. We've provided links to duty calculators for a few countries, below.

Order Processing

We package and ship your order as soon as reasonably possible after we receive credit card authorization and verification. Orders are shipped on business days only. Business days are Monday through Friday, excluding US federal holidays. In most cases, orders ship within one business day of the day the order is placed. You will receive a shipping notification and tracking information, when available, as soon as your order has shipped. All orders ship from Lookie Lou's headquarters in Glenview, Illinois, USA.


Whenever possible, we use the most environmentally friendly shipping and packaging materials we can find. We reuse void filler and limit the amount of disposable material that goes into each box.
