There's been a tragic fire in our building, currently we have no access to our shop and the stock isn't salvageable. It's early days and we have every hope to return, but this is going to be a long process. Bear with us while we work out where we go from here. Thank you for all your messages, they were lovingly received. Fiona & Marice
