We are still open and processing orders, but there may be a short delay in delivery as the Royal Mail & courier depots are extremely busy.
Due to the virus pandemic stock replenishment times have increased significantly from our suppliers and stock availability cannot always be guaranteed. To avoid disappointing our customers we have temporarily restricted ordering on our website to stock we physically have. If you see and item you would like to purchase but cannot because it is showing as out of stock, please contact us, we can then advise if more is available, and when.

The latest service updates from Royal Mail can be seen here. These are usually updated daily, and show which delivery depots and areas that are experiencing delays in collecting, processing and delivering mail, along with any other updates affecting deliveries, eg: adverse weather conditions or industrial disputes.
They continue working to collect, process and deliver the UK’s mail, but despite their best endeavours it is likely some areas of the country will experience some level of disruption at some stage. While they work to keep any delays to a minimum, local issues such as COVID-related self isolation, high levels of sick absence, resourcing, or other local factors, some deliveries may be delayed. In those cases delivery routes are rotated to minimise the delay to individuals. Targeted support is given to those delivery offices affected to restore service to normally as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

All orders are packed in boxes and packaging sized so your items are well-protected and special care is taken to protect fragile objects.

We will notify you if there is a delay in processing your order. Orders over the quantity held in stock will usually be despatched in 7-10 days, and if known at the time of ordering, this will be shown on the item details page. We may also at our discretion, hold your order, if some items are out of stock, but we are expecting further stock to be available within the next 5-7 days.
