  1. Unfortunately it has become neccessary to increase prices of much of the patterned and speciality tissue papers. We have absorbed a lot of small increases over the years but our postition has become impossible due to the effects of Brexit and inflating wood pulp prices.

    I would like to apologise to all our loyal customers for these increases which are totally beyond our control.

  2. I sadly have to report that my elderly mum passed away in the early hours of 6th December. It was a blessing in the end as she had suffered such a lot with Parkinsons Disease and Dementia. She had not known who I was for quite a few months even though I am an only child.

    Consequently one or two orders have been delayed but in the main I have managed to keep up with them even though my mind has been elsewhere.

    The funeral will take place on Monday 19th December.

    Please bear with me during this very difficult time.

  3. This week I have discovered the selfish side of human nature when a delivery driver tampered with a parcel, stole numerous items inside and resealed the box leaving a customer disappointed and myself out of pocket. I will leave no stone unturned in finding the culprit and claiming for my losses but it still makes me very sad.

    A lot of my customers are self employed in small businesses and they will all know how hard it is, working all year round without any holidays, working whilst ill, taking work home and trying desperately to make ends meet. All this whilst trying to compete with ruthless supermarkets and big business who jump on any trend and use their enormous buying power to undercut those of us who really don't want to be rich. We just want to get by.

    Brexit has also adversly affected my business enormously and I am sure others must be feeling the effects! Having people stealing from us just makes it even harder. I will have to sell 100's of pounds worth of items just to recoup enough profit to pay for the loss.

    I would never wish harm on anyone but I do hope that karma pays a call and makes the person who stole my items re-think how they are living their lives and make a change for the better.

    However onwards and upwards (hopefully)

  4. The recent heavy rain has caused severe travel disruption for everybody including Royal mail and courier services. Even if your immediate vicinity is not affected delivery delays are to be expected as parcels are being held up by various flooded areas.

    We apologise for any inconvenience caused by circumstances beyond our control. We are very thankful for the enormous efforts made in all weathers by Royal Mail and the various couriers that we use at this busy time.

  5. Hi Folks, haven't posted for a while because I simply haven't had the time.

    We had a fairly quiet Christmas, to be honest I don't think people have the money to spend. I did a little research and noticed that although we had fewer customers than recent years they were, on the whole, purchasing more. So I decided to reward those customers by introducing 'SAVER PACKS' of plain tissue paper.

    I can tell you it's been so successful that I can't keep up with the packing! Dare not ask hubby to pack the tissue even though he helps with other things because he is so ham fisted hence my sore hands! The cold weather doesn't help in our icy cold warehouse.

    We would love to see what you crafty people do with your tissue so as a little encouragement for you to show us if you send us some pics and allow us to use them on our website you can win up to £40 worth of our products if your photos are chosen so get clicking!
