News & Events

Updated Friday 24th January 2020 -

I have just introduced GIFT CARDS on the site for all those who wish to send a relative or friend something a little bit special, these start at £20 and upwards redeemed against items on the site.

When you have placed an order please make sure your basket shows the item/s and you WILL receive confirmation of the order if this does not happen please check your basket. Do not pay the order until I have added the postage shipping cost which will depend on the packed weight of the item/s and the destination. This last week I received a payment for an order which I had no order placed on the system. Please check your emails to make sure the order confirmation has not gone in your spam box. You can always ring me if you are in any doubts about your order or other matters. I accept payment on the site by card or bank transfer, If you prefer to do it over the phone direct with me or send a cheque that is fine too.

I realise that we all have a budget to work to so you can secure any item with a deposit on an agreed time frame so give me a call to discuss this option if it is of interest.

Don't forget to let me know if you are looking for anything in particular I will always keep a look out and let you know if they are in stock. Additional pictures are available for all items on the site if you are unsure about an item/s, you can also contact me to discuss an item/s on the phone and I can also describe them to you.
