What a crazy few months its been for everyone , Covid has changed the world , thank god for that weather and i think our government did an admirable job of a terrible situation especially in comparison to other major so called countries
Our business is a very strange rollercoaster of emotions lately , from normal times pre covid we some days wondered why we kept going but during covid i wondered when would it stop ! Its been an amazing time , ive met some wonderful new people lately and the level of patience has been amazing considering delay times i was surprised . We have had major issues with our couriers ** loosing ** items , Breaking items and just a lot of general issues with no signatures or phone calls going on . Our first reason as a small opening business to choose Fastway was pricing originally . It has been a hard decision to make a move to a more specialist company in HomeDel.ie but we made the decision based on the fact they base the whole business on care , Care for the customer us and you and the items and handle with care . Yes we've had to pass on some costs on larger items and mirrors but we still try our best to absorb costs but we could not continue with the loses we were experiencing .
Worst of all , was trying to get information regarding situations. It was not happening , which left everyone frustrated
Thanks to our new friends in www.homedel.ie and we look forward to dealing with them more closely in the future
Is it okay to complain a little ? no ? okay nevermind !
A huge thanks to everyone whos been keeping us afloat lately , our social distancing measurements are pretty straight forward when your an army of one . Today i spent about 10 hours checking and labeling parcels , pretty intense stuff , but the products themselves , the new ones are great .
My daughter keeps telling me we should do #unboxing videos of our products as they are a popular thing online apparently . I do get excited to see the new stuff in person so maybe theres something in that .
For quite some time we had little or no access to the bird house stock but they are finally back , we will be adding a few more to the range over the coming weeks but at present we have four available options which can be found here

Aeroplane wall clock 6736 ... It landed and immediately i just had too ... absolutely had too order one , i needed to feel it , and admire it and yes ... Love it . I always had this idea as a teenage that i wanted to be a pilot , to fly , to travel but more than that i loved aeroplanes , i remember robbing my brothers airfix planes and getting in deep trouble for deconstructing them ( and not being able to put them back together ) lol
That's what i love about this clock , set of clocks , its 3d its also got incredibly well detailed breakdown of the parts making it fun interesting and informative , oh and it tells the time , who knew !

So after talking with my good friends who run a local website hosting and management company they have suggested we start posting a lot more on our blog here as it results in good seo and helps people get to know us and our products a bit better so we are going to try and do that starting now . We will post things we feel are relevant the interiors world , guides on how to care for your purchases , trends and even some links to other people doing some great work here in ireland in the sustainable and ethical fields .
We brought back our Unfinished range today , it hasnt been available for quite some time but i really love the items available , all are made from natural mahagony or teak woods - very good quality items and most are slightly unique given they are carved from different pieces of wood . The best thing is you can finish them anyway you desire , natural oils and stains look great but you can also paint to your hearts content . We have priced them as well as we could and included delivery so as to make them more affordable to people all accross the country during this lockdown . Many thanks to Fastway couriers for continuing to support our little business with the service they provide and to our supply which we recently procured
The Uninished Range can be viewed here
For the first time in nearly two years i can almost see 100% of the floor in the garage storage space , this week ive had some extra time to clean around , find lost items and hang even more stuff and arrange things in the space in such a way as im almost reluctant to sell the items lol . We are thank full that we are still safe and sound during the lockdown and are still able to semi operate a sort of a spring cleaning sale here . Our suppliers although being a dutch company are based in the uk which makes the current situation difficult for all , we continue to be in contact with them and hope we can get back to some business normality at some point soon , but for now we still have bits and pieces that were previously ordered dribbling in . We are also thank full to Fastway , while we have had issues in the past , the current service and our own personal driver has been excellent to work with , we have new safety process in place for sanitisation of items and parcels before they leave , and safe practices of hand gel and ppe when on our premises
Well its a strange new world we are faced with , Covvid19 is a terrible thing to be living through and i think it is going to change the way the world is going forward , Business's will be massively affected . Currently our business as an online company hasnt had too much of disruption , the supply lines are still open and our couriers while a little busier and slower on the pick ups are still out there keeping things moving . As of january we have made the move from being a sole trader to becoming a Ltd Co , so weve been very busy with all the paper work and accounts that need to be done to get to this point .
With the lockdown its given me some time to actually catch up on keeping my display in order in the storage area , and hey Liverpool havent won the league yet either so thats also a nice bonus
All Joking aside though we hope everyone will take this seriously , look out for each other , keep your distance #socialdistancing is a real thing that will help flatten the curve keeping our resources from being too far stretched . Stay safe
