Online shop update

Online shop update


Apologies for my very extended break from blogging and not posting anything regarding the online shop update. While so many people are spending so much time on social media, I’ve been doing the opposite. A sign of my age and simply being very busy.
Since my last post I’ve made changes to the shop so now all sales are dealt with directly by me via email.
The reason for this is the increasing turnover time for orders. Since the online shop can’t give estimates for order completion and delivery times. I feel I would rather give clients my best estimate of the time needed before collecting any payment.

Please contact me via the contact page or direct email with any enquiries regarding the placing of orders. Thank you.

Now that you might be seeing the light, do you want to ferret around car boot sales or eBay. Looking for something that’s biggest plus is that your grandfather may have had one. Nowadays taste is so varied whether it’s modern or retro. Everybody has their own style and a valet has to be part of that and not just be the thing in the corner no one else likes the look of.

Plan your next trip with a globe hatstand valet

The continuing daily social whirl

The continuing daily social whirl of promoting the valets continues. It’s very spontaneous, I don’t know from one day to the next what I’m going to post. At best I might have posts ready a day or two in advance but it’s more likely to be a last minute rush to get it ready for the lunch time deadline. Continue reading
