Christmas last order dates 2016

Christmas 2016

I know it might seem far too early for Christmas talk but I’ve been getting asked about this lots! I’m getting asked about this because it can take 3-4 weeks to make custom order pieces. If you have something in mind then it’s a good idea to get in there early. Lead times do become longer in the run up to Christmas due to the higher volume of orders.

Please keep in mind that these dates are just provisional. Last year I had to close out yarn bowl orders two weeks earlier than planned due to demand. I’ll be regularly reviewing these dates as we get closer.

Just to keep life easier I’ve separated this list into two; dates for in stock items and made to order dates.

In stock items

If you are ordering pieces already in stock that just need to be posted here are the dates.

UK 2nd class postage – December 18th
UK 1st class postage – December 19th

Special delivery isn’t offered as a standard on listings in either Etsy or Folksy but is available by request as it’s more expensive. Handy if your in a pinch due to it’s shorter delivery time.

UK Special delivery – December 20th

International Airmail

Eastern Europe, Asia, Cyprus – December 5th
Greece, Australia, New Zealand – December 8th
Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Poland – December 12th
Canada, Finland, Sweden, USA – December 13th
Austria, Denmark, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland – December 14th
Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg – December 15th

Christmas made to order items

These are the dates for made to order items, this is any order from the shop with ‘Made to order’ in the title. Alternatively any specially ordered custom request via email or Etsy convo.

Last order dates for international orders will be slightly different, if your in the UK these are the last ordering dates.

Dinnerware and sets of items – October 30th
Named yarn bowls – December 28th
Standard yarn bowls – December 7th

For international orders dates for named yarn bowls will be November 21st and the date for standard yarn bowls November 28th.

There are lots of dates here so if your unsure about order just get in touch and I can let you know an estimated dispatching date
