Shipping times and charges

******Last posting dates for Christmas*******

These are the last posting dates supplied by Royal Mail. Due to ongoing industrial action these dates are a little earlier than usual and are recommendations, NOT guarantees.

UK services:

Monday 12 December - 2nd Class / 2nd Class Signed For / Royal Mail 48

Friday 16 December - 1st Class / 1st Class Signed For / Royal Mail 24 / Tracked 48

Monday 19 December - Royal Mail Tracked 24

Wednesday 21 December - Special Delivery Guaranteed

International services:

Due to ongoing industrial action in the UK, we can no longer guarantee international parcels sent via Royal Mail / Parcelforce will arrive in time for Christmas. We will do our best to get your orders to you as quickly as possible, and recommend using the Parcelforce tracked and signed service so you can keep track of your order.

We will of course do our best to get orders to you as quickly as possible. Please see below for details of order despatch times.
We recommend using tracked services if you are concerned about orders arriving in time as these services are being prioritised by Royal Mail.


When you place an order, you can choose from a range of options with different shipping services and the prices for each, before you check out. 
We offer Free Next Day Shipping to UK customers on orders over £75. To qualify for free shipping your order must be shipped in one parcel.

In stock items

Orders placed before 10am will usually be shipped the same day, provided all items are in stock. 
Orders placed after 10am will usually be shipped the following day, provided all items are in stock.
Orders placed after 10am on a Friday, or over the weekend, will be shipped on Monday, provided all items are in stock.

Please be aware that there may be delays during very busy periods.

We do our best to keep our stock levels up to date, but we are a living, breathing, real-life shop as well as a website. On rare occasions things may sell out between you placing your order and us picking it. We will notify you as soon as possible if this is the case.

Out of stock items

Some items listed on our website are not kept in stock all the time and need to be ordered in from our suppliers. The 'Usually Ships Within' time gives an estimate of how long it should take to arrive from the distributor. Most of our distributors ship stock to us very quickly, but on occasion they can take a little longer than the estimated time.

Your order will be shipped once all items are in stock.


Most new items are released on a Friday. Where possible we will ship pre-orders on Thursday, so you have your order on the day of release.
If you use the pick up in store option, your order will be ready to collect on the day of release ie Friday.

Please note, we are not allowed to let you pick up items before the release date.

Release dates can be subject to change. We will update release dates on the site as soon as we know of any changes.

Pre-orders are shipped as and when they arrive.

We don't ship your orders until you tell us to.
