After the Sale


We will be offering free storage of any purchases in our Edinburgh saleroom until such time as collections become less restricted. We have been working with our local Mailboxes Etc branch to maintain a limited safe and contact-free collections and shipment service for smaller items for as long as possible. For safety reasons no personal collections or alternative carriers will be allowed to pick-up or drop-off items at any of our UK venues until restrictions are lifted.
