Ribbon / Braid / Stretched Lace / Craft Stuff

This site is the result of many questions from eBay buyers.
Most along the lines of - Have you got........?
All the ribbon, braid (fringed and otherwise) and stretch lace came from a liquidation sale, so we have a limited amount ie 'when it's gone, it's gone'.
The photo above is some of it, before it got sorted.
The craft stuff has sort of got added on and keeps growing, it's stuff we like and use.

The site is still 'under construction' and probably always will be, but if you have any questions, feel free to email us and we'll try to answer.

Ordering and Payment

You can order by using the shopping cart, by email, phone (01388 602831) or letter and then pay by cheque, postal order, bank transfer, Paypal or cash (as a last resort). In UK pounds only.
The shopping cart uses Paypal's ( it's part of eBay's empire) secure online payment system, but you don't need a Paypal account to use it, just a valid credit / debit card.
It will only let you order one item at a time, if you want more than one of a particular item, you either change the number ordered when you view your shopping basket or hit the 'add to basket' button more than once.
Postage/Shipping needs to be added to your final order, manually.
The info on how much is on the
Postage/Shipping page and the main section page for the type of things you are looking at. If in doubt, email us, telling us what you want and where you live (it's the country we need to know) and we'll let you know exactly what to pay.
Unfortunately a
ll the automated systems we've looked at mean someone somewhere will be paying more than they need to, so the old fashioned manual way is the fairest.
