Countdown to Christmas

A big thank you to all our customers for making this the best year for us for over five years!  We’re down to UK only for standard shipping of all our amazing art prints, posters, tshirts, puzzles etc to arrive before Christmas but that still leaves plenty to do and strangely enough we still get orders in from overseas customers despite the shipping restriction.  A few last minute courier requests as usual and the odd challenge to get a complex order ready in time but we’ve never failed to keep our shipping promises so far to make sure everyone gets their lovely gifts in time for Christmas.  If you still need something it isn’t too late providing it will be delivered in the UK.  As usual, we are always here.

All the Ed Org shows up until Christmas

Here are all the shows celebrated and amazingly talented artist Ed Org wil be at up until Christmas.  make sure you get along and buy up some goodies to give as fabulous presents … unless you find you can’t part with them of course .. its been known!

NOV  5/6  Art, Antiques and Collectibles Fair, British Motor Museum, Banbury Road, Gaydon, Warks, CV35 0BJ

NOV 19/20  Art, Antiques & Collectibles Fair, Lowland Hall, Royal Highland Centre, Edinburgh, EH28 8NB

NOV  26/27  Ludlow Medieval Fayre, Ludlow Castle, Shropshire, SY8 1AY

If you are not sure what on earth the fuss is about then have a look at the amazing art here and be visually staggered by the art so you just have to go along to one of the shows.

Apparently the Daily Mail newspaper is in urgent need of some real news to put on its front page so if you have some please do let them know.  Like many other online retailers we are not best pleased with today’s front page where the Daily Mail is clearly scraping the barrel in trying to get people to buy their newspaper.  Alleged problems at Marks & Spencer and John Lewis are blown out of all proportion into a frightening nightmare of nobody getting their online orders in time for Christmas.  Do the Daily Mail journalists think their readers are really that daft?  Probably.  Are they?  Hmmmmm.

Well, as we work a seven day week and use a variety of shipping methods calculated to ensure that none of our customers are left disappointed by the non-arrival of those special and hard-to-find collectibles, out-of-print books, limited editions, prints and posters let’s all feel some sympathy for those poor Daily Mail journalists who must truly be at their wits end if they have to scrape the barrel like this.  But enough of that Daily Mail nonsense, just come visit us and see what you can buy without rushing around in the wet and the cold by clicking here.

Christmas approaching fast ….

Well, as usual we’ve been rushed off our feet here and if I wasn’t in desperate need of a coffee break this wouldn’t be getting written at all.  As you may have noticed, on www.artistsuk.co.uk we are committed to dispatching all orders for delivery within the UK in time for Christmas and we hope to maintain this right up to 23rd December with last orders being delivered on Christmas Eve.  Obviously, overseas customers will now need to contact us for courier rates if they want to stand any chance of getting their goodies by Christmas.  My guess is we’ll definitely have to switch off the guarantee to dispatch in time for Christmas for delivery within the UK before the 26th December because Bruno’s project to develop a time machine still hasn’t borne fruit.  Apparently, the hamster keeps falling off the treadwheel or something  🙂
