Q. Can I put the painted glassware in my dishwasher to clean them?

A. Due to their designs the painted glassware ranges are not dishwasher safe.


Q.Why isn’t your full range on website?
A. Although we do try to have as many lines as possible featured on website sometimes this is not possible due to the fragile nature or availability of products.


Q. Will you price match furniture?
A. We will certainly look at price matching our furniture although other retailers sell similar ranges that are not identical so we would be unable to match on those occasions, other retailers might also have actual lower prices but when you come to checkout there is a large delivery charge, we keep our prices low to start with and included free delivery.

Q. What is your company policy regarding Waste disposal of Electrical and Electronic Equipment?
A. As a company we are members of the WEEE Distributor Takeback Scheme (DTS)

A. In this case, if the difference in price is just a few pounds, we would honour it as a gesture of goodwill. If you paid more for an item online than you would in store then we will refund you the difference with apologies as soon as possible. In the case of large and clearly erroneous price discrepancies (for example, an item costing £600, being advertised at £6), we would cancel the order, and take the item in question off sale. We will, of course, fully refund any sums paid via the original payment method.
