Last Orders & Christmas Holiday

It’s the last few days to order before I stop shipping and have a well-deserved holiday.

christmas holiday

I will be closing orders this Thursday (16th), at 12pm GMT. Any orders received by then will go out the same day (or Friday if I need to make something to order). My main store will remain open but I will not be shipping again until Wednesday 5th January 2022.

Delivery Times

I can’t guarantee any orders will arrive for Christmas but if you’re in the UK it’s very likely. Please choose a tracked service at checkout for the best chance, and so you can see where it is. If your order has not arrived by Christmas Eve then I’m sorry but there’s nothing I can do until after the holidays. Wait and see if it turns up and send me a message when I’m back in January and I’ll be happy to help.
