Terms & Conditions
When you place an order you will need to detail your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number and credit/debit details. For your security, we do not store your credit/debit card details. This information is processed securely by Wix Payments which encrypts data sent to and from us and our customers using the HTTPS protocol. Wix Payments are Level 1 PCI-DSS compliant.
When your request has been processed you will be notified by email with a receipt of your order, you can then check if all the details are correct.
A contact telephone number is essential so that I can quickly reach you if I need to discuss your order and is a requirement for delivery by courier.
Payment for all orders is at point of sale and not at point of despatch. Payment is made via Wix Payment using our online payment facility and you can pay by credit/debit card or PayPal. The total cost of your order is the price of the products ordered with UK delivery included, unless clearly marked otherwise. By entering card details onto our system you confirm that the credit or debit card being used is yours. All credit/debit cardholders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If the issuer of your payment card refuses to or does not, for any reason, authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any delay or non-delivery.

STOCK AND DELIVERY
All of the items listed on the shop section of this website are available for purchase unless stated otherwise.
At present I am only able to accept orders and offer delivery to UK addresses. All orders are usually delivered using Royal Mail’s first class service or via courier. On dispatch you will receive confirmation email. I aim to despatch orders within 10 days. If there are circumstances when this might be longer, for example if I’m on a break, I will contact you.
If you require an item for a specific date or really urgently, please contact Olwen before ordering to ensure that your request can be met. Olwen will do her best to meet any deadlines.
I try to recycle and reuse packaging materials where possible, or choose packaging made from recycled materials.
