The Contract Between Us
Your order amounts to an offer to purchase from us. We will confirm receipt of your order by sending you an email summarising the detail of your requested purchase (‘Order Confirmation Email’) and confirming the details back to you; it is at this point that we accept the order and the contract is formed, subject to these Terms and Conditions of Sale. The contract is completed once the items in your order are delivered.
Purchase Terms for Products
We have worked hard to create products of high quality. For the individual detail and specification of each product, please see the product description which accompanies each product listing. Please note that we take all reasonable steps and care to ensure that all details, product descriptions and prices of products are accurate.

The prices for all products are quoted in GBP sterling. The prices quoted on the website are for one of each item. Prices include Value Added Tax at the appropriate rate. The product pricing also excludes delivery charges which will be added to the total amount at the checkout.
We may change our prices at any time but changes will not affect any order in respect of which we have already sent you an order confirmation.
It is always possible, despite our best efforts, that some products listed on our site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a product's correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge you the lower amount when dispatching the product to you. If a product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our site, we will contact you to inform you of the error and give you the option of either continuing your purchase of the product at the correct price or cancelling your order. If we are unable to contact you using the details you provided during the order process, we will treat your order as having been cancelled and notify you in writing. We are under no obligation to provide any product to you at an incorrect (lower) price if the pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could have reasonably been recognised by you as a mis-pricing.
Unless you are purchasing an item on pre-order or a bespoke customisation (where in such circumstances an estimated delivery date will be provided) delivery will take place within 5 working days of the date of the order confirmation. Our orders are usually dispatched daily and are delivered by Royal Mail and should reach you within a 5 day period.
If we do not deliver your product within 15 calendar days or, in the case of pre-orders and customisation within the other time period agreed between us, you may contact us to cancel your order. We are not responsible for delays outside of our control. We will contact you as soon as possible to let you know of any delay which may occur to your order and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay.
If you provide to us any instructions relating to the delivery of your order (including, without limitation, instructions to leave the products in a particular place, outhouse or with a neighbour), you are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of these instructions and we shall not be liable to you in relation to any loss of or damage to the product resulting from our following of your instructions.
