Christmas Postage Update 🎄
It's all over the news and every kind of social media that Royal Mail employees are striking and, honestly, it's completely fair.
However, it does mean there's a lot of delays at a very busy time of year. Because of this, Royal Mail has brought forward their suggested 'last post' date if you're sending things via 2nd/1st class, and you'd like them in time for the holidays. So, I've changed my last order dates to fall in with theirs!
I've also added the option to select different couriers too at checkout, so it's entirely up to you. If you're happy to wait (possibly) several weeks for a parcel and save on postage fees, the option of 2nd class is still open 💗
Of course, whichever method of shipping you choose, I can't guarantee anything! There are delays with every courier now as a knock on effect of the strikes, but I'll do my best.
Please note: Emily C Designs won't be closing at all over the Christmas period. Between the 24th and the 29th of December, no orders will be processed or shipped when I take a few days off, but you're welcome to order in that time. It'll just take a little while before dispatch.
In other news, last weekend was my final market of the year. I've had so much fun going out to different events and meeting so many lovely people: customers and traders alike! Bring on next year 🤩 I've already got on booked in for February so stay tuned to hear more about that.
With all the uncertainty around postage, it's been really great for people to be able to buy or collect things from me in person, so here's an update on where you can get your earring fix:
Green Space. 30 Mutley Plain, Plymouth, PL4 6LB
Anna's New Life Furniture & Huggamugs. 12 Front Street, Annfield Plain, Stanley, DH9 8HY
Or, if you're local to the University of Plymouth, me too! Pop me a message and I can either hand deliver your order to your door, or you can come and collect it from me instead.
Thanks for sticking around during all this craziness. It's a lot. And this was a heck of a lot of text! But all us small businesses out there really appreciate your support. You have excellent taste 😉
