Delivery & Returns

Postal prices

We use a system that calculates the postage at the checkout according to weight so that we can charge more accurately.

Our maximum UK postal charge is £4.99.

Dispatch & Arrival

We aim to dispatch all orders within 1 – 3 working days. We send orders with the Royal Mail or a courier service depending on the weight of your order.


Order are sent 1st or 2nd class. If your order has not arrived within 1 week, please contact us. If you’d like a faster service, please email us and we can organise payment for Special Delivery which costs an extra £5.

International – including Switzerland, Norway & Iceland

We send our international orders tracked and signed and will email you the tracking details when your order is sent. Generally, your order should arrive within 5 – 10 working days. However, depending on circumstances beyond our control, orders can take 3 – 6 weeks. If your order has not arrived within this period of time, please email us.

We do NOT send any international orders in December as they are often late or get lost!

European Orders

Unfortunately, due to Brexit and new EU tax laws, we can no longer sell to our European customers directly through our website. However, we can sell via our Etsy shop as they calculate and submit the correct tax.
