NEW CONTACT NUMBER - There is now a new contact mobile phone number for general questions and orders.
PRODUCTS FROM THE UNITED KINGDOM Please be advised that major delays are expected for products made or coming from the United Kingdom. This will impact stock-on-hand products that I am replenishing. Individual customers who may be affected will be contacted as necessary.
So much more is coming in 2023, it is hard to write it all down in one place. Please come back frequently to check on all of the new goodies available or those that will soon be coming.
The range of products is growing everyday and there are many more to come, so please come back and visit to see what is new.
Please be advised that there will be some major changes happening to the website over coming weeks. Disruption will be kept to a minimum but if you have trouble checking out or any other problems during your shopping experience, please contact me as soon as possible.
A new dedicated telephone number will be created in coming weeks to direct all incoming enquiries. If I am unavailable or out of my office, then customers will be able to leave contact details and expect me to return their calls or messages in a timely manner.
Some products have become unavailable due to natural disasters. Unfortunately pricing on some products will be increasing due to the cost of materials and other factors.
SMALL PARCELS TO THE UNITED STATES - Please be advised that slowly listings for some items will be changed. This includes some key rings, cork coasters, tea-towels, fabric swatches and some other small products.
The postal system is making changes to items sent from Australia at previously cheaper rate. Please be advised that I will keep costs down as much as possible for these orders.
Some products will need to be sold in sets or multiples to account for the increase in postage. This will be the case until further notice. I will always combine postage as much as possible. Affected orders and customers will be contacted if they order before listings can be correctly updated. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
