Covid-19 - January 2021
January 2021 - The UK has entered a 2nd National lockdown. However, as with the first lockdown, we are still trading. If you are new to our site - you may wonder if we are still operating as normal. We are.
I guess it's only possible to sum this up honestly!
Every single magazine on this website lives with us here, at home. There are two of us here, and we are home every day. A huge archive of magazines in their own rooms. 2 people. 2 pets (on the lower floor). Self isolating is not much different than how things normally operate! The magazines are here ( no outside storage ).... in most parts they have been wrapped safely since being uploaded to the website, some time ago. They are pretty much posted as quickly as you want them. The UK post office is open as normal and we visit Monday, Wednesday and Friday. For larger orders, these are collected by courier.
If you follow me on instagram - you'll see that life here is pretty simple. Rising to answer emails. Walking the puppy solo. A session on the website. Packing orders. A visit to the local post office just down the road. Home again. Rest. Repeat. Not mixing with people actually works nicely ;-) For the past year, life has been quite magazine focussed!
We keep a simple and effective cleaning system - sanitising out the door/in the door and back to the magazines on the top floor.
When you purchase a magazine, it is packed with card, mailers and acetate which have all been here for a long time. We buy in bulk and we have plenty of stock.
If we receive deliveries of new stock, or when we have been permitted to travel, these items have been left boxed as they arrive for a week at least. Largely due to how busy we are consistently updating old collections.
With the uncertainty of knowing who is operating as normal, I feel it's important to advise that - the website is live and looks the same..... because things are operating the same.
For those of you regularly having faith in us, and to all new customers placing an order in these unusual times - Thank you.
