COVID-19 Update - 19 May 2020
Our main focus is to try and offer you a continued great service whilst looking after the safety and wellbeing of our staff and partners
Our Delivery partners are working hard to ensure the safety of their teams and the customers they deliver to and we remain on hand to help. If you have any queries during these uncertain times don't hesitate to contact us.
We're doing all we can to ensure we maintain as normal a service as possible and we send you our very best wishes during this difficult period. Take care of yourselves, your loved ones and your community.
We have kept our shop open as long as possible though due to the unfolding situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19), we’re very sad to have to let you know we’ll be temporarily closing our shop from the end of the day on Monday 23 March.
Following Government Advice to stop all non-essential travel we have temporarily stopped customer collections. If you are selling china to us, you are temporarily not able to deliver it to our warehouse yourself. Please call us on 01926 512402 if you need any assistance with your order or sell-to-us request.
Our Website is Open As Usual

Deliveries in the UK - Deliveries may take longer than normal.
Royal Mail and Parcel Force are continuing to deliver parcels while following Public Health England guidance to keep their staff and you safe. This daily challenge may result in some deliveries taking longer than normal.
All UK deliveries, Royal Mail and Parcel Force have instructed drivers to place the parcel on the ground and step away from the door, whilst waiting for the recipient to open the door.
On orders over £35 which are delivered by Parcel Force, if you provide a mobile number you will receive an SMS text with the option to leave the parcel in a safe place
If a signature is required drivers will not be handing over hand-held devices to customers to capture electronic signatures, instead drivers will log the name of the person accepting the item. This will apply to all deliveries that normally require a signature.
