Where do you deliver?

All our products are available for delivery within the UK, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. 

We can deliver internationally, please see the "do you deliver internationally?" FAQ below.

What happens if I'm not in when my parcel is delivered?

Most of our orders are shipped via Royal Mail or Parcelforce.

Couriers such as Parcelforce require a signature for parcels. If there is no one present to accept an order, the courier will return this to their depot and will leave a missed delivery notification.

If your order is delivered by Royal Mail and cannot fit through your letterbox or a signature is required, the postal worker will post a missed delivery notification through your letterbox and will take your order back to the local sorting office.

You should then contact the delivery company or sorting office to arrange a redelivery or in order to pick up your parcel. Any uncollected parcels will be returned to us after a certain period.

Do you accept applications for Work Experience?

Please Note: Our Work Experience Scheme has been suspended until further notice.



Yes, we do! Our Work Experience Scheme is very popular, particularly with Durham University Students. Our Work Experience Gallery Assistants have gone on to succeed in other opportunities, one in particular secured an internship at the prestigious Christie's Auction House in London. We accept enthusiastic, hard-working candidates, ideally with an interest or background in Arts & Culture. If you would like to apply for Work Experience or would like to know more, please contact us by email and include a copy of your C.V. to Sophy Nixon, Manager.

Please note that delivery charges can be expensive for heavy, bulky items.

From January 2021 all parcels posted to the EU will require a customs form, as the U.K. will have left the EU.

The customer is responsible for any customs charges and customs clearance process varies from country to country and can take anything from 1 week to 1 month to clear. If your parcel doesn't arrive after 1 month, please contact us.


Import Duty & VAT To Europe

VAT will now be applied at your national rate for deliveries to the EU. Import duty on items produced outside the UK will be levied on orders over €150.  As the importer, you are responsible for all import duties, customs, local sales taxes and handling fees. Payment of these may be necessary to release your order from customs on arrival.  Unfortunately we are unable to advise on the amount that this may be.  Any deliveries refused due to non payment of fees, will be destroyed by the courier and therefore will not be eligible for refund. If the importer wishes to return the parcel, any return fees applied by the courier and HMRC such as return shipping, government charges and handling fees, plus a £15 restocking fee will be deducted from your refund.
