Terms & Conditions


Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.

We accept Visa, Mastercard, Switch/Maestro, Visa Delta, Electron, Solo and JCB cards which are registered in the UK. We charge for every item as soon as the checkout procedure is complete as we feel this is the most secure way of processing payments. You may also send your credit card information via phone to 01635 868517.

When confirmation of order is received, this indicates that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that an error has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.

If purchasing a product which includes a sharp object eg (knife, scissors) you are agreeing that you are of legal age (18 years or older) to purchase such a product.

Please note that prices that appear online do not necessarily apply to purchases made in the shop.

If an item is unable to be delivered and not collected from the depot (Interlink or Royal Mail)? within 7 days, the parcel will be returned to us and you will be charged postage rates again to resend the items to you. Deliveries are only classified as lost after a period of 14 days after posting.

Free postage orders will be sent via Interlink service unless your delivery address is located within the Royal mail only area as shown in our Postcode Clarification Areas section on our delivery page.


We deliver your order right away. We will normally send your order to you within 2 business days.
