Postage Savings

The postage costs quoted are for parcels sent within the UK only but we are happy to send goods overseas.

Please use the email link on any page to contact me for the cost of shipping to destinations outside the UK before you place your order.

I will then quote the appropriate price and follow it with an invoice if you wish to proceed with the purchase.

All prices now include postage and packing within the UK.

To save on postage we can arrange to bring your purchases to our shop which is in The Buttermarket Shopping Centre in Newark on Trent.  

All you need to do is email or ring me.  

Contact details are at the top of this page and the bottom of all the other  pages on the site.  There is also a contact page that can be reached from the navigation column on each page.


 Returns Policy

I strive to post goods within 24 hours of receiving payment and send most of our parcels by Royal Mail.  They usually take between 3 and 5 days to arrive.

Overseas parcels are sent by Airmail small package service.  Delivery times vary depending on the destination.

Please contact me should your parcel appear to be delayed so that I can contact Royal Mail to track it.

I aim to sell goods in pristine condition, new and in maker's packaging and have experienced very few problems with the quality of the merchandise.

Should any item be found to be faulty or not as expected, please notify me within 7 days of receipt and I will work with you to resolve any issues.

This may be a replacement or refund depending on the problem.
