and here we go again : Hello Nicola

I have no idea why this crate is called Nicola, no one does, as she was inherited by the shop. However Nicola is a trouper. It is in Nicola that all your orders are collected in each morning ready to pack, and in Nicola all your parcels are carried up to Willie the postman. We have a feeling Nicola will be working her socks off over the next few weeks. Regardless of whether our doors are open or closed tomorrow, we WILL be processing your orders and getting them out 6 days a week as normal.
And we have MASSES of new shiny, tasty products arriving, so you will have buckets to chose from.
If you want any advice or extra information about any product we stock you can always email or phone us and we will be delighted to help. You can also always arrange an online Skype shopping session with Laura. These sessions let you browse the shop and chat to a real person about different products in a way that makes online shopping a little bit more human.

 

 

Well, that was a Rollercoaster but it’s definitely the right decision. We’ve been asking ourselves every morning should we open today. - Trying to balance staff and customer safety with keeping people’s jobs, so it’s great to have some direction on it. In line with yesterday decision we’re open from 10.30 - 5.30 for the next two days but we’ll be open online for the next six weeks for deliveries and collection in store (for as long as it’s safe)

 

 

And they are back in stock! The all fabulous Streamery Stockholm. I have written about these a bit in the past so most of you will be very familiar with my love of both the garment steamer and fabric shaver. Watch the little films here to see how they work :) We are open until 5.30pm today and then from tomorrow we will be online and click and collect only until December. We have MASSES of new stuff arriving each week so check in with us for all your gifting needs land remember you can always call or email us for any advice or help in choosing gifts.

 

 

Finding that gift that will really WOW is so satisfying. And these clever gadgets most certainly do that. From a teeny speaker which packs a huge punch, lights that open up like books and an alarm clock with a display that fades away when it is quiet letting you have a digital-free sleep. . If you would like to send gifts to your loved ones, we are here to help. We are working away packing up your online orders and getting them out as fast as we can. We can gift wrap for free, write any message in your chosen card and post it directly to them. And if you don’t want them to receive the gift just yet, just let us know which day you would like us to post it and we will do all the rest.

Conor Pope on The Six O’Clock Show Chatting about buying local and Designist last week. This was such a great little segment, pop over to Virgin Player to watch it all.

 

We have had a few queries over the last few days asking about our gift service. If you have presents you want to send directly to those you love - then we are here to help. You pick the gifts, tell us who you want us to send the present to and let us know what message you want us to write inside your chosen card. We will then gift wrap it and send it straight off to them. Ta da! And if you have a few different people you want to send gifts to just let us know and we can sort that too. Also, how fabulous are these paper bear cards??

 

 

We love a light hearted insult here at designist - and from what we can see, so do you! Here is a selection of some of our bestselling insults you all just love to send to each other. . We are working away in the shop processing your weekend orders. Tomorrow we will all have a day off to enjoy the bank holiday but we will be back then on Tuesday. You can collect your click & collect orders Tuesday-Friday and we process your delivery orders each day. We are working through a teeny bit of a backlog at the moment but are nearly on track and are getting faster and faster at it, so do bare with us :)
