Please note that we are not fully operational because of lockdown and social distancing. My staff cannot come in to work, and we cannot operate as we are used to. We are trying to get back into the “swing of things” within what is allowed, but it is a soft opening and slow process due to many factors, such a stock, travel times, and most importantly, my right hand lady whom is not able to come in and help me. We will start to work on hats and winter items as soon as she can come back to work. Dolls, Toys and Decor items can only be worked on and delivered during and after level 3 of lockdown, with lead times still applicable as well.

Please be patient with us as this is not normal circumstances, and we are affected by this.

If you want to order and are unsure of anything, PLEASE get in touch with me, I am happy to help.

Lead time

Whilst we will endeavour to have small quantities of stock available in certain items, it is not always possible to have stock of everything, due to the time our items take to make. If an item shows “IN STOCK” it is available and can be shipped within 1-10 working days depending on the item. Some items are ready to ship (RTS), where some In Stock items may require last finishing touches before sending.

Items that are “Made to Order” will be booked and made on confirmation of order. Please bear in mind some items take longer to make than others. The lead time of items will be advised on each individual product listing.
