News & Reminders

  • My Summer Sale will be ending soon (sometime over the weekend). I’ve added new products and reduced prices even further with some items now just 50p so don’t miss out before prices go back up.
  • International shipping is available again in my main Shopify store, including tracked services – view shipping costs – most UK orders will ship for £2 and international orders for £4.50. Customers in the 27 EU countries still need to use my Etsy shop where you can pay all relevant sales taxes at checkout and avoid additional fees on delivery.
