Coronavirus: Thank you for your continued support in these difficult times. Since our office and factory are in a rural area, our staff travel to work individually by car and we have enough space to maintain social distancing, so in consultation with our staff, we have decided to remain open for business unless government policy changes.
We are still able to despatch most of our products, however, the ones listed below (that are made by other manufacturers) will not be available for a while.

Tableware (Coasters & Placemats) and Wallpaper.

Our despatch times are normal, but Royal Mail & Parcelforce delivery times are varying depending on location - some parcels arrive next day and others are taking up to 10 days, which we have no control over.

We will update this message as anything changes.

The shops shown in the photograph remained the same. On the corner over the roundabout they were roughly in order: Tesco's, Boots the Chemist, the Apex off licence, (...Read full memory)

I actually grew up in 'Edgware' because I lived on the wrong side of the 'Railway Line' which along the M1. I remember Balfour newsagents at Apex Corner & later on I remember drinking in 'Jeramiah Bulfrogs, which I as just trying to rack my brain remembering. My dad (& later on my mum when she learnt to drive), couldn't go ANYWHERE without having to go round Apex.
