Welcome to 2022 everyone! We hope you have all had a happy and healthy break these past few weeks. Due to high Covid case numbers at the moment, the shop being part of our home and our desire to keep our families, staff and customers as safe as possible, we have made the decision to remain closed to walk-in customers for the time being. We will be operating with a skeleton staff Monday through Friday 10am to 4pm, and will continue processing online orders and taking phone orders during this time. Contactless pick up will also be available.
