Bricks & Mortar shop closed to the public…

We used the Covid lockdown as a good time to start renovation and repair work to the building caused by floods of 2020. Unfortunately, that work is taking longer than anticipated and therefore We are still closed to the public until further notice. We are happy to say we are still operating online as per usual. Royal Mail is collecting our post the next working day after your order is processed. ParcelForce shipments are arriving outside of Europe albeit with a small delay due to Covid 19.

ITALY We have been advised that there are severe delays being experienced due to IT problems in Italian customs. If you are ordering for delivery into Italy please be advised that your parcel will very likely be delayed for up to several weeks.

FRANCE Due to new VAT laws coming into force in January 2022 we will be unable to ship to France from 23rd December 2021. Apologies to our French customers, we hope to resume shipping to France as soon as we can.

Thank you for your patience, as always, in these trying times.
