How are you?

Hope you're keeping well! We're all good at Joyce & Joan HQ (a.k.a. the small log cabin in the corner of the warehouse that we built ourselves πŸ˜‹).
We've only added a handful of lovely new things in recent weeks but we are excited to say that more own-brand products are in the pipeline as well as a new range of Official Scrabble Mugs(!) pre-orders for which will be opening very soon πŸ‘€

We're also very happy to say that international shipping will be back soon - I know a lot of our lovely customers from overseas have been asking and we always intended the suspension of deliveries outside of the UK to be temporary. From July, we'll be once again posting things all over the world via orders through our eBay store (as they will very kindly handle the various sales tax rates around the world). We'll definitely update you when we're ready to go again ✈️

Another exciting announcement to make is that from next week, we've got a new employee starting who has come to us via the Kickstart Scheme! The scheme is run by the UK government and has been set up to create jobs for 16 to 24 year olds at risk of long-term unemployment. Our lovely new employee will be taking on a warehouse co-ordinator role, picking and packing all your orders, alongside a qualification to help springboard them into a new career. We're so happy to welcome them into our little family business and Office Dog is especially looking forward to having a new friend/treat dispenser 😊

That's all our news for now! Speak soon,

The Joyce & Joan Team x

Back in Stock

Supply chains are all still quite unpredictable and we're continually grateful for our customers' patience while various products go in and out of stock and are sometimes absent for long periods of time. Things are gradually getting back to normal 🀞

Here's what's recently come back in with special focus for the Guide to Seasonal British Fruit & Veg tea towel by Stuart Gardiner Design which was original discontinued but has been brought back by the lovely Stuart due to popular demand!
