asking for trouble

Last Weekend to Shop + Christmas Holiday

This is it! If you’re in the UK and want to order something to arrive before Christmas Day, you need to get your order in before 11am GMT on Monday.

last shipping dates 2019

After that, I will have a final shipping day on Friday 20th December but this is after Royal Mail’s recommended deadline. In theory, it could still be delivered in time, but don’t blame me if it arrives later.

I will then be on my Christmas break. My shops will remain open and shipping will resume on Monday 6th January.

Big thanks to everyone who has bought something from me – it’s been a tough year for retail and I appreciate every order!
