Covid-19 Update

We’re fortunate enough to be a home-based business, so for as long as we can keep getting ingredients delivered and post orders out, our online shop will remain open. Rest assured that we’ve been practicing social distancing and self-isolation and keep our premises scrupulously clean. We do recognise that this is an anxious time for everyone, and so we would like to spread a little happiness to everyone.

Stay safe everyone.
