32 of 52 - Christmas Orders for ClareBears

Yes, yes, yes, it's only just turned October but in the world of retail that firmly makes it Christmas.

So I need to make you all aware of my Christmas schedule.  If you don't already know, we're expecting our very own Baby Bear at the end of November.  Right in the middle of prime Christmas shopping time for all my lovely customers.

This means that my postage schedule will not be it's normal turn around.  I also plan to close the shops for two weeks when the baby does arrive.  I think I'll have my hands full enough!  So, you need to get your orders in early.  I will advise on when your bear is on it's way on an order by order basis.

If you're purchasing in the UK, the last postage date is Tuesday 21st December but don't leave it that date as your bear may have already gone to a good home and I don't know how well I'll be able to keep up with any that I have to make to order.

If you're purchasing in the US or other worldwide destination, you need to order by Monday 6th December.  Now this is where the dates prove tricky.  If Baby turns up on time (like that's ever going to happen) I'll be closed on this date.  So, if you're not in the UK, please order by Mid November.  If you miss these dates, please do drop me a convo or message via Etsy or Folksy and I will do my best to arrange something.  But I really don't want to let anyone down so order early is my advice to you.

I will also not be taking any more custom orders until January 2011.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you during the festive period!  Have a good one everyone!

  1. 2 weeks off Clare? You slacker! Hope all goes well - at least there's no worries the littlebear won't have enough teddies!
