|Frequently asked questions
How does the order/payment/delivery process work?
-On order placement you will receive an automatic email acknowledgement of "Pending" status.
-We then pick and pack your order and for international customers find our best shipping quote and adjust the invoice. An email is then sent confirming the order status is now "Awaiting Payment" and instructions of how to pay.
*Please note that we pick every order prior to requesting payment, therefore orders placed at night or over the weekend will not change from "Pending" to "Awaiting payment" until we have picked the order the next working day.*
Do you have a minimum order quantity?
-No. However please be aware of the shipping costs and discounts we can apply on orders over £125 and £225, to minimise your shipping costs : Shipping and returns
How can I pay?
-We accept paypal and credit/debit cards over the phone. You may request our bank details for bank transfer, however please note that we will not dispatch until the funds have reached our account. We manually accept each order to ensure quality and appropriate shipping rates. Please allow 30 minutes between placing the order and telephoning for payment. We use Worldpay's on-line e-payment service and do not hold any card details ourself.
For orders placed on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, processing commences the following Monday.
-Your order status on payment moves to "Paid: Awaiting Courier" and you will receive a payment confirmation email, and information on the expected delivery time and date. We always provide tracking details with the courier. In the UK you will also be given a one hour delivery slot, if you leave a mobile number with us the courier can contact you via a text message as well as the standard email.
-We will then ship your goods and update the status to "Paid Delivered" once dispatched.
What is the price I see next to each item?
-The price indicated is always for a single item, not for a pack.
*THIS PRICE IS IN BRITISH POUNDS (£) - we always invoice in GBP.

Do you have payment surcharges

Can I order just one size or colour of a style?

What if my order is very small, can you adjust your shipping costs?
-As a wholesaler selling to retail. We do not offer this service through the Royal Mail due to the additional costs of time spent travelling and queuing and parking charges. At our discretion we may use a courier jiffy bag ( 30cm x 20 cm x 5 cm) for which we can reduce the cost. Please note the jiffy bag is not large and is fixed in size by the courier.
What is the RRP of your goods?
-All items are for the independent retail market therefore you choose the price to sell
How do you determine your prices?
-We are a small family business, trading independently so are not dictated to by our manufacturers. By keeping our overheads to a minimum, we endeavour to pass on value for money to our customers. You can find more details About us by clicking this link.
Can you guarantee me exclusivity in my area?
-No. Our styles are from independent brands and consequently we do not offer exclusivity to an area/town .
What do you mean on some styles by "complimentary" ( e.g. complimentary headband)?
This means that the complimentary item e.g hat/headband is NOT factored into the price of the garment. The complimentary component of the style is therefore not subject to our normal returns policy.
I am starting a new shop, how can you help me?
-We have supported numerous new enterprises and are always willing to share our experiences with you.
May I visit you?
