Brown Costumes (finally) on their way!

The last of the 2011 costumes are finally on their way. I heard yesterday that they will be in Bristol by the end of the week, and so should hopefully be with me next week. I have been waiting for these, as you may have spotted a lack of brown coloured costumes this year!

I know many people like a brown costume for their ‘Joseph’ role, so I will have 2 different waiting for them the first is a plain Chestnut costume with matching head dress, and the second is a red – brown striped robe, again with matching head dress. I can’t actually find my sample of the Striped fabric, so it will be a lovely surprise for me as well when it arrives!

Both of these costumes will be available in Medium (age 4 – 7) and Large size (age 7 – 11). I will post photos as soon as they arrive.

As with all of my costumes, I will only have a limited stock of these costumes, so if you’re interested in them and would like to reserve one please do get in touch.

Had some fantastic e-mails from happy customers this week

I can’t tell you how delighted I am to hear back from my customers when they’ve received their costumes. I love hearing that they love the costume, they were delighted with how quickly it arrived, and that there child is now all set for their play!

One of the strange things about buying online is that it still feels a little risky. Will your purchase look as good in real life as it did on the screen? Will it fit? Will it arrive in time?

If you order from my site and then aren’t happy, or have a problem, please just get in touch and I’ll do my best to sort the problem out.

If you need reassuring before you order, I have just added some wonderful e-mails I’ve received this week to the websites ‘Testimonials’ section. Please have a read and see how delighted other customers have been.

Me? I’m off to polish my halo and bask in the warm glow of such wonderful praise 🙂

Stock Update – the last Khaki Innkeeper has left the building

The last Khaki Stripe Innkeeper has left the Building!

The last Khaki Stripe Innkeeper has left the Building!

Remember I found one of our most popular costumes from  last year, hiding in my cupboard? Well if you fancied it – too late! It has gone!

Stocks of our new costumes are continuing to sell well, so please don’t leave it too late to buy this year. These beautiful costumes come direct to me from India, and they are sold exclusively on this website. The fabrics change every year, so once a costume has sold out, it has really gone.

Some other of our new costumes have been selling well so I will update you as stock levels become low on them as well.

Just found a Khaki Striped Inn Keeper at the back of the cupboard…

Amazing what you find when you do a stock take, isn’t it!

The last ever Khaki Striped Inn keeper

The last ever Khaki Striped Inn keeper

Lurking in a box of Blue Striped Shepherds, I found what must be the very last Khaki Striped Inn keeper. This costume was a run away success last year, and so I was delighted to find one last one hiding away.

This really is the very last of these, so if you fancy it please don’t wait!

See the costume here!

Royal Mail Suspends Special Delivery Guarantee

Just been informed that because of the weather conditions, Royal Mail has suspended their ‘next Day by 1pm’ guarantee on their Special Delivery service. This means that I can not guarantee Next Day Delivery either.

To quote from Royal Mail :-

Suspension of the Special Deliveryâ„¢ guarantee

Weather conditions are affecting mail services in some parts of the UK with snow and ice making collections, deliveries and movement of mail very difficult or unsafe in some areas. Whilst we are continuing to accept, prioritise and expect to deliver the majority of Special Deliveryâ„¢ items, the changing weather conditions mean we cannot guarantee the delivery of all items the next day in all areas. Therefore, in order to provide customers with clear guidance, we are removing the Special Deliveryâ„¢ guarantee for items posted from Wednesday 1st December 2010. We will restore the guarantee of delivery as soon as we can assure customers we can honour the service promise in full.”

Apologies for this – I will update as soon as I hear any more news.
