Christmas Opening Times

(Last updated 13th December 2018)

I will be closed for a Christmas holiday from midday December 19th and will re-open on January 7th 2018. The website will remain open and you are very welcome to place orders or contact me while I'm closed, but please be aware that I won't be able to process your order or acknowledge your message until my return.

You can see below the last order dates for all items on the site if you would like your order completed and posted in time for Christmas. Any orders placed after the recommended dates may not be dispatched in time for Christmas delivery, so please bear that in mind and if you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me!

Very best wishes, 
Sarah Thexton 


Please Note: the dates below may be reviewed and adjusted as we get closer to Christmas, so please come back to this page to double check current dates before placing your order - particularly in December.
