Please note that Royal Mail is not a 'time guaranteed service' and can take up to approx 10 days to arrive (although it is usually around 2 to 3 days from date of posting) So if buying for a gift please bear this in mind
Due to very high demand certain popular items can sometimes be on longer delivery times dependant on time of year etc, if there is going to be an excessive delay we will keep you informed. We have extensive forward ordering of items we believe to be in high demand and always try and keep this delay to the minimum.
You agree that proof of delivery supplied by our delivery company is sufficient evidence to establish that goods have been received.
Should any item not be available at the time of despatch we will ship all items available at that time. Any items not actually shipped will be refunded. Please re-order items not in stock, we do not hold personal details to enable back ordering
