Christmas Orders & Hours


As the Christmas holiday period is rapidly approaching, we invite you to place your Christmas orders at your earliest convenience.
The products and prices  for Christmas Orders 2020 are reflective of our Online Shop product and pricing offerings. This is due to the similarity in the order processing and packing systems and will assist us in achieving and maintaining consistency and efficiency throughout this busy period. If you wish to order a product that is not shown on our product collection page online, please make contact with your request and we will do our best to meet your wishes. Thank you for your understanding.
You can place your Christmas order either at our Factory Shop, by phoning our office team on 03 348 2191 or emailing .
