We aim to ship all items as soon as payment is cleared. This means that items ordered and paid for by 12 noon (UK time) Monday-Friday are usually dispatched on the same day. Items ordered and paid for after 12 noon or over the weekend are sent on the next working day.
We never charge excessive amounts for postage and packaging. Our P&P charges are made up of the Royal Mail charge for the service plus a small contriubtion towards the packaging materials, plus VAT, which we are legally obliged to charge.
PLEASE NOTE: that orders are often too big for standard letterboxes.

The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.
