As you may know, we shut both of our shops on the 21st March. It seems like a life time ago now. What an incredible shift of public consciousness in such a short space of time. We really miss being a part of the two communities that our shops reside in.
We have been working really hard behind the scenes to increase the range of products we have listed on our website. We aim to list as many items as possible so you can buy gifts for yourself or loved ones from the comfort and safety of your own home. The website is very much a work in progress and we hope to evolve and change the online shop to keep it fresh and interesting for you. Please do let us know if you are interested in something you have seen in the shops in the past but can’t see it online yet. We may be able to list if for you.
We now wrap, pack and ship all of our orders from our flat in Edinburgh. Orders placed within the centre of Edinburgh (roughly 1.5 mile radius from each shop - please email us if you are unsure - email@example.com) will be hand delivered by either Ian or myself, these orders will go out on Monday and Thursday. Please make sure you order before 11am. Orders that are placed outside of the centre of Edinburgh will be sent with our courier. They will be collected on Monday and Thursday. We have sent out a lot of care packages for people who are isolated, along with birthday presents. Please leave us a note at the checkout, or send us an email if you would like to add a personal message – we will hand write it and add it to the parcel.
We’ve gone from a team of 10, to just Ian and I, like the old days! All of our staff have been furloughed and although we miss them all terribly, they will not return to work until it is safe to do so. We can’t wait to see them and all of our lovely customers…..soon. Until then keep safe and stay in touch.
Laura and Ian xx
