Goods & Services Tax (GST) - Australia only:

All prices shown in this website include a Goods & Services Tax (GST) of 10%, which is applicable to sales within Australia. Exported products are not subject to this tax, so for overseas customers our published prices will automatically be reduced by 1/11th.


To view products click on the categories on the left-hand menu or do a search by typing an artist's name or a product title into the search field (above). NOTE: Although the search facility is not case-sensitive, it will find only exact matches of words, phrases and spelling. So it's best to keep your search terms simple, preferably one or two words. Do not use quotation marks, or plus/minus signs etc. as this will result in errors. Multiple listing of a product in search results simply means that it is in more than one category in the site.

How to order:

To change the quantity, put the new quantity in the box and press 'enter'.When you've finished making all your selections click on the Add/Edit Billing Address link.

If you inadvertently place an order more than once, or unintentionally order multiples of a product, don't worry!  We check all orders (including checking for duplicates) before processing and will contact you if we need to clarify anything.

Stock Availability:

Whilst we make every endeavour to maintain stock of each item listed, we cannot guarantee it. For example, on the same day you place an order for something, someone else might have bought the last one we had! If you do order an item that is out of stock we will contact you and let you know how long it is likely to be before we can supply it.

Shipping Information:

If all items you have ordered are in stock we usually process and post orders within three business days (mostly same day!) except if you are in Australia and have chosen to pay by cheque or money order, in which case we will not process the order until payment has been received. The option to pay by cheque or money order is not available for overseas orders.

Gift Vouchers:

Here's how the new gift voucher system works:

The recipient can select the items they want.

Then when they go to the Shopping Cart they will see a box on the left side 'Enter your Coupon Code'.

This code will be emailed to the purchaser of the voucher when the order has been processed.

When the recipient of the voucher enters this (all caps) and clicks on 'continue', the gift voucher amount will be deducted from the total cost.

At this point they need to enter a Billing Address and-or Shipping Address.

They will have the option of registering as a new customer or  select Checkout as Guest.

Then they just need to follow the instructions regarding postage etc.

We reserve the right to refuse a replacement or refund in the event of abuse of the returns policy. In some circumstances, at our discretion, we may be able to exchange goods such as the leather bags if a genuine ordering error has occurred, but please contact us to find out.

In addition, there will be a AU$10 handling fee to account for the time involved in arranging these exchanges.
