Warning – Snow in the UK – order online as early as possible

November 26, 2010

We all know what happens in the UK when there is snow about – everything stops – and that includes couriers delivering all your Christmas Presents ordered online. So don’t be caught out, please order as early as possible so you won’t be disappointed. We use Parcelforce who have never yet let us down – they have never damaged a parcel and we havn’t had one problem delivery. A really good record on their part, although I do know that ocassionally they have to suspend deliveries to certain areas when there are adverse weather conditions. Like the floods down south the other week and now the snow up north. Although this suspension appears to only last for a day or two it can still affect urgent 24 hour deliveries which is the service we use.

Enough of the warning and an update on the run up to Christmas at Read’s Creations. We are extremely busy and already sold out of certain boxes. The natural wood varnished boxes should be back in stock in the next two weeks and, although the girls pine keepsake boxes are sold out we are now offering a slightly smaller box, still available in Magenta Pink, Lilac, Royal Blue, Pale Pink, White, Lime Green or Black, with a compartment tray and available with a lock, personalised with a name/s and the option of wooden embellishments.

In 2009 we vowed that we wouldn’t be sold out of the Oak Boxes this year (we sold out in November last year) and made sure we had a good number of Oak boxes in stock. They are selling so fast we are not sure if we are going to have enough to last. Our Oak boxes are of such an excellent quality that it is difficult to find a local skilled craftsman to keep us supplied at the current price so the price will have to be increased quite considerably in the New Year. I had a lovely phone call from a customer who had just received his oak box the other day and he was so delighted with it he just felt he had to phone and let us know that he would be recommending us to all his friends and family. How pleasant that was as, although we get a lot of emails about our beautiful boxes, we don’t very often get a phone call.

A very popular keepsake box the whole year through is our Ivory Wooden Keepsake Box with Gold Wooden Hearts – personalised on the lid and front of the box in gold – stunning.

Although we promised to update you on the best sellers at Read’s Creations on a weekly basis, not time, so take a look at our best sellers of wooden keepsake boxes for October 2010 or just contact us if you would like any details or a keepsake box designed especially for you or a friend.
