Making A Purchase
Making a purchase could not be easier. Just browse our store, and add any items that you wish to buy into the shopping cart. After you have finished your selection, click on 'Checkout' and you will be asked for a few details that we need to be able to complete the order.
We accept card payments through a third party - no credit card details are stored either on the website or on the premises, you can also pay by PayPal or BACS. If you are shopping from North America or anywhere else, place your order and your card company will convert the transaction to US Dollars or your own currency.
We charge for all items unless there is going to be a long delay. Backordered items are charged at the time of ordering. If you do not wish to pay online, you may send your card information via phone or by post.
If you have made a mistake in your order and cannot correct it in the shopping cart, contact us and we will correct the mistake for you.
When confirmation of your order is received, this is to indicate that we have received your order. It does not indicate that a contract exists between us. We will indicate acceptance of your order, and hence a contract between us, when we send you an invoice. We have included this term to protect us in the case that a mistake has been made in pricing, we have inadvertently under-priced goods, or we are no longer able to supply a particular product for some reason. In the case of a change of price, we will always contact you first to ensure that the price is acceptable.
Shipping And Handling P&P starts at only £3.95 for all our UK retail customers.
We cannot provide a next day service if you order Saturday or Sunday these will be processed on Monday (except Bank Holidays) for Tuesday delivery.

Prices are based on MyHermes/ Royal Mail retail services plus a contribution towards packaging materials.

Please check the appropriate website for their terms and conditions
Our rates vary according to the value/weight of your order and are automatically adjusted.
As postal charges to North America & the rest of the World can be difficult to estimate we hereby promise that if upon posting these charges are found to be excessive a refund for the postage difference will be issued. (Excludes cost of packaging materials!) Likewise if we have severley underestimated the cost of postage we will ask for a contribution towards our excess.
We try to keep our database up to date but if your country is now in the EEC and we have not updated our database please let us know and we will refund the difference of the cost of your Postage.
Delivery Schedule We deliver your order right away. We will normally send your order to you in one business days. International orders are generally received in under seven to ten days.

Back Orders If your item is not in stock, we will back order for you. You will always be emailed with the option to cancel your order if you would rather not wait.
Tax Charges We are not VAT registered and therefore no VAT is raised on our sales.
