To Speak to Us:

  • What if I need to speak with a real human being? As a small, one person, business, it's sometimes hard for us to answer phones, process orders, order stock, update websites...all at the same time. It is best to attempt to resolve any questions via email. All orders are accepted on the Internet, by Mail or fax. We do not take telephone orders.


  • We do not publish catalogues. We are an e-commerce family owned and operated store and our website is more up-to-date than a catalogue would be. By not spending thousands publishing on paper, it also helps to keep costs down.


  • We re-cycle packing boxes that we have received to do our bit to save the environment.


  • We are very private people ourselves, and we don't appreciate when companies pass on our address to those who fill our mailboxes (both virtual and physical) with unwanted mail. Therefore we have no intent of passing on your information either. We do not sell mailing lists, or offer your personal information to anybody.
