Presentation, pricing and availability of goods

We always aim to ensure that all details, descriptions and prices appearing on this Website are accurate, but from time to time errors may occur. All prices listed are correct at the time of entering the information; however, we reserve the right to change prices of any product at any time.
While we try to accurately represent the colour of an item, photography will be affected by the settings of the computer on which it is viewed.
Where we have made an error in the price of an item on our site, we reserve the right to withdraw this item from sale at this price and present it at the correct price. If you have placed an order at the incorrect price, we will inform you of the error and give you the opportunity to confirm your order at the correct price or cancel the order. All items sold are subject to availability and while every effort is made to fulfil your order, the stock visible on our website is held in our two stores, and during busy periods may have sold in store concurrent to an online order being placed. This may be the case, even if your order has been confirmed. We will advise you by email if we have to cancel your order for this reason, and a suitable alternative will be offered, or your money will be refunded.
