Now that the country is at  Covid-19 level 2, we can open the shop once again. Our hours are back as they were before lockdown; Monday-Friday 9:30am - 5:00pm, Saturday 10:00am - 4:00pm.

You can still buy through this website, by emailing or by phoning us on 3874505.  You can pay by internet banking in all cases - or by credit card through the website. The website assumes you need a courier delivery, and charges you for it. If you don't need a courier delivery, email or phone us with your order.

Not all our stock is listed on the website so do feel free to email Jo or phone the shop on 3874505 with any questions.
