Shop update...

It's been nearly five months since the fire, and we're happy to report that the website is once again open for business! We've worked hard since that day in October - processing hundreds of sale orders, repairing the damage to the shop and restocking the shelves.

We'd like to thank you for all your support - it's been really encouraging to know people have missed us - and of course you did a great job in helping to clear the smoke-damaged goods! You can see from the photo below that there really wasn't much left at the end:

The shop has a new carpet and has been painted a lovely vibrant orange :) We've been unpacking boxes as fast as we can and updating stock levels - this was about two thirds of the way through the boxes:


We are still waiting for restocks of some items, but have boxes arriving every day and lots of new goodies to go online - so do keep an eye on the website as we'll be adding things every day!

Unfortunately, the bricks and mortar shop remains closed for the moment - there is still a bit of sorting out to do - but hopefully it won't be much longer! You can see from the photos below that it is beginning to take shape again....

... but there are still boxes around and the shelves need moving around. We've even had our new stock room painted orange to match...

... and we have brand new shelves going up too!


We're really looking forward to getting back to normal and being able to supply you with all your papercraft goodies again!

Lovely! Well done and congratulations! I think you've got back on your feet really fast. You all must have worked so hard!
I'm definitely a dedicated customer now - you all handled the fire so well, I'm sure you can handle a few papercrafting orders!
