Helping You at Chrismas

Hi there website customer,

from now until Christmas will will be paying for your insurance AND we have reduced our shipping rates to half of what Australia Post charges us.

  • This is being handled automatically - you don't need to enter anything special
  • Sorry but we can't do free shipping. We offer such a huge range including some items are heavy to post and inexpensive to buy and that we can't manage without making a loss. Australia Post does not offer special rates to us unlike big business. So just a flat reduction is all we can do. We also want to pay for insurance to keep you coverged and others don't offer than.

Delivery considerations

Play safe and do your orders early. It is the internet so you can buy 24 hours a day!

  • Ensure you request delivery to a safe area. We will be paying for insurance over Christmas but that is null and void if you ask for it to be "left at the door". Maybe get delivery to your work or stay-at-home relative.
  • Or buy a gift voucher online - I can process these and email them on Sun 24th till 6pm. Make doubly sure your email address and mobile phone is correct.
  • Or warn your recipient there gift may not quite reach them before Christmas if you order late.

We can in theory do order processing up to and including Thursday 21st. We need Friday 22nd to get to the Post Office to post! Post Office doesn't deliver on Sat 23rd.

However you / your recipient getting it in time will depend on the following factors:

  • Your payment being received - this means cleared funds if you direct deposit or go to a bank to transfer .... phone and do card over phone may be easier.
  • Australia Post Offices opening hours
  • Australia Post getting the orders delivered - we are only offering Express Post delivery this month but that's still no guarantee of next day delivery by Australia Post read their website - but it wasn't great last year.
  • Paypal website does not have problems telling us you paid
  • ... Or other unexpected problem that we need to ring you about

December 1 2017

We have given up waiting for a never ending series of dramas in getting the version of this website to complete.

I have been focused on uploading stock ready for Christmas sales to this website so there is a better selection and better reflects the bigger range at our Newtown and St Leonards store. If you can't find something specific - ring and we can always send photos and you can buy over the phone and/or add to the rest of your order.

Most of the exact stock you see is only available for web purchase. Some large or rare specimens is marked "see at Newtown" / "see at St Leonards", But most of the range you will find similar pieces at the shops and fairs but not the exact website piece. 

You may also want to ring us to confirm what's in stock if you are coming a long way. However no one is ever disappointed even if first preference has already gone.

Thanks for your understanding. Fingers crossed that 2018 is at long last when we can a mobile friendly version.

cheers Shamarah and Graham
