If you are a new or small trader and would like to display your products to a wider audience just send a .pdf file of your products to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will host it here
This service is primarily to help traders who as yet do not have their own web presence
Corona Virus update
We ARE open at the moment. But dispatching orders is subject to disruption because instead of sending orders out as soon as they are packed we have reduced our trips to post to coincide with trips to the supermarket for food in line with the UK Government advice
Currently, due high demand, the turn round of orders to dispatch is between four and six weeks (Correct as of June 8th 2020)
Thank you for your custom and understanding at this time. Stay safe out there!
