Sorry folks, but we'll be starting back in the workshop a week late (from 10th January), as we are having to self-isolate after contact with someone who has since tested positive with Covid.
We are still open for orders across all our online outlets and we'll hopefully have all outstanding orders sent out by the end of next week.
Stay safe 😷
Trish & Dominic
LAST ORDERS HAVE NOW PASSED FOR CHRISTMAS - Thank you so much everyone for the last minute flurry of Christmas orders and hello to all our new followers.
We need time to make your name puzzles, so we definitely need to draw a line under the orders for now - we plan to get this last batch made over the next couple of days and hopefully in the 1st class post on Monday (definitely before the last post on Tuesday!)
We will be taking a couple of weeks off over Christmas, but we will keep all our online stores open, but please be aware most orders won't be started until after the new year (unless we have the items already in stock)
Thanks again to all our customers old and new - your continued support of our little family business really means a lot 🙏
No Covent Garden for us this weekend
Due to the rapidly rising Covid rates, particularly in London, we have taken the tough decision that we will not be at Covent Garden craft market this weekend (18-19 Dec).
If you were hoping to come and buy something, you can still order online, but please do so before first thing tomorrow so we can get it sent out ASAP.
We hope you all understand. Please keep safe everyone and look out for others: whether they be family, friends, neighbours or strangers.
CHRISTMAS 2021 LAST ORDER DATES
To guarantee delivery for Christmas please order by 23:59 GMT on the following dates
UK: Sun 12 December
EUROPE (non-EU*): Sunday 12 December
REST OF THE WORLD (excl. EU): Sunday 28 November
We will do our best to complete all orders received after these dates but we cannot promise Christmas delivery.
* sorry to all our EU customers but due to restrictions on imports we're sad to say we still cannot ship to EU destinations.
Our return to Covent Garden craft market 16-17 October 2021
*deep breath* For the first time since March 2020 we will be back at Covent Garden craft market next weekend (anxiety and fuel permitting) selling our name puzzles and wooden toys.
To say we are apprehensive would be a massive understatement 😬 so if any of you friendly people out there are able to stop by to say hello it would give us a huge lift.
You will find us on Stall 119 in the Jubilee Market Hall, 1 Tavistock St, London WC2E 8BD
Saturday & Sunday 10am-5.30pm
Wish us luck, and hopefully, if all goes well, it will be the first of many weekends
Price Increase 15 October 2021
It's been a really tough decision, but with huge increases to our material and production costs* we need to put our prices up next Friday 15 October so we can keep our small business going into 2022
We hope you will still agree that our hand-crafted wooden toys are still great value!
Thank you for supporting our independent family company
* e.g. Our wood prices have increased by 100% in just the last few months - it is sourced from the EU, so, yeah, thanks a bunch Brexit 😡
