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.

Prefabs Alexander Avenue - a Memory of Wishaw.

I lived with my parents John and Rhoda Mcgonigle and my elder brother Joe at 1, Alexander Drive and remember the sweet shop. We used to live next door to Mr and Mrs Dale who had a daughter Pearl. My parents then had another son Philip and we moved to Tarbert Avenue. I have many memories of Wishaw, Bairds shop, the butchers The Gill that I used to walk down and also the Ravenscraig Steelworks where my dad worked.
