Our response to coronavirus (COVID-19)

UPDATE – Alert level 4 – NZ in Lock down

As NZ Post is not an essential service and will also be closed we cannot do online orders or deliveries during the lock down.
Our online shop is still open any orders that come in from there during lock down will be sent as our first priority when we can return to the shop.
We will be closed for a minimum of four weeks, and will be keeping an eye on any developments as they come in.
Please take care of yourselves, follow the advice during this time to stay home and we will all get through this.
Reading books is good at reducing stress levels, for all the family.

We will be creating blogs on this website to fun stuff, free or reduced price products on-line from our authors and useful information for  those looking for something different.
