Store collection

We are now offering a store collection service, simply place your order online (minimum £5) and select store collection at the checkout. We will then pick your items and keep them for you, until you are ready to collect.


We ony deliver to the Mainland UK as standard.

Our delivery charges are based on Royal Mail's standard rates, plus packing, or courier for heavier/bulk items. We can ship to some countires overseas, please contact us for a shipping quote.

Wherever possible we send items by the small or large letter rate, however, due to Royal Mail charging for post by thickness, as well as weight, anything which is over 25mm thick is charged by Royal Mail at the small parcel rate, rather than letter. This means that even very light items, such as cork bungs, fall into the small parcel rate, so may appear to be assigned a heavier weight than they actually are. While we try to be as accurate as possible with the weight of items,some items items will be determined to be a higher weight, due to the item's dimensions.

We aim to dispatch your order within two working days, although the vast majority of orders are dispatched the next working day. Orders placed  on Saturday, Sunday & Monday will be dispatched on Tuesday. If any items you have ordered are out of stock, we will contact you to suggest an alternative, or to inform you when the item will be back in stock.
