Ordering, Delivery and Returns


When ordering from us please complete all sections of our online forms and provide as much information as possible, this will help ensure we can provide you with an efficient service. 

You will receive instant confirmation of your order which indicates your order has been received. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us.  We will intimate acceptance of your order by email and when you receive this email, a contract will exist between us.  The availability of items offered for sale on our website and the prices, are subject to change.  Our specific confirmation of your order will confirm both the availability of the item, its price and the cost of postage and packaging.

When gift-ware orders are received before 12pm on a normal working day we will endeavour to send it out the same day, orders received after 12pm will be sent the next working day. For all artwork orders we aim to deliver within 14 days. However, due to high demand we may require slightly longer, we will keep you updated on all postal orders. Where an item is shown as ‘out of stock‘, please contact us for information about the likely timescale in which we can complete your order.

Postage and Packaging

We will package all orders appropriately taking account of the contents and the delivery service chosen.  Multiple items ordered together may be packaged together or separately at our discretion. Delivery charges only cover costs and are intended to offer our customer best value.


UK Mainland

Our preferred delivery partner is Royal Mail/Parcelforce.  The level of postage required will take into account the size and weight of the parcel in combination with the value of the goods, and the level of insurance cover required.  All parcels are sent fully insured.

Smaller items (eg jewellery, purses, accessories and some gifts) will normally be sent via Royal Mail First Class or Special Delivery services.

Larger items, including framed artwork, may be sent via Royal Mail/Parcelforce or by Courier.  Courier services may take longer – any delivery timescale advised must be regarded as approximate and not guaranteed, and therefore no compensation for delay is available. 

If you require delivery within a specific timescale or with extra cover please contact us directly to arrange this.

The quoted charges apply to most UK addresses.  Some areas may incur additional charges and delivery may take a little longer.


Please contact us for confirmation of ‘Postage and Packaging’ charges for International destinations.  We will always seek the most cost effective and efficient way of getting your items to you.


We accept payment via Stripe online or by debit/credit card over the telephone.


Value Added Tax at the current rate ( 20%) is included in the quoted price of all goods.  The tax is applicable to all orders from within the UK or the European Union, with the exception of business within the EU but excluding those in the UK who can supply a VAT registration number.  This number will be checked against the EU VAT  Registration database for verification before shipping, to prevent fraud.
