Covid-19 Update

Last updated: 03//11/2021

Orders are being sent out same or next working day after they are placed.  
We are now open for International shipping including the EU!
The shop is now open for customers! We still require customers to wear face masks to enter.

We are still very busy at the moment, but are pretty much down to our normal times for sending out orders  

We still continue to take measures in our office and warehouse to practice social distancing whilst continuing to work, as well as all wearing face coverings, frequent hand washing and sanitisation of work areas. Our aim is to keep everything running smoothly, whilst also keeping everyone safe and healthy. 


Royal Mail and our couriers, DPD and DX are collecting and delivering as normal. All are offering a 'contact-free delivery service and you will no longer be required to sign for any parcel. We also have a field for delivery instructions where you can leave specific instructions as to where you would like your parcel to be left.


Please note: We are currently sending most parcels the same day or next working day after the order is placed.  

Delivery is usually around 1-3 days after it has been sent. 

Please note: Parcels sent by Royal Mail are NOT trackable. Royal Mail have some delays in their network meaning that 1st class can take up to 10 working days to arrive, although most parcels will arrive before this time. We are not able to resend parcels which have not arrived until after the 10 working days have passed.


Orders placed before 2pm on a working day will be sent same day. Orders placed after 2pm on a working day will be sent the next working day. All Express orders will be sent on a next day service. However, the service is not guaranteed, and whilst the vast majority of parcels do arrive next day, please allow 1-2 working days for your parcel to arrive. The express option may not show up for some postcodes in the highlands and islands, if this is the case, call us or email us and we can send you a link to pay for express delivery.


Orders under £45 - £8.94
Orders over £45 - £4.99
