We’re working round the clock here at Handmade By Me to make sure you get all you want this Christmas. Unlike some of the bigger retail chains out there, when you buy handmade and local, you get extra special TLC to make sure you get what you want when you want it! Unfortunately last orders using the post office must be in by midnight tonight. BUT my trusty courier company are working right up until Christmas, so if you live in a major city in South Africa, I can very easily overnight your presents right to your door. If you live in Cape Town you are also very welcome to collect from me in Vredehoek. So you still have a few more days if you need a little extra time, but all final last orders for Christmas must be in by Friday end of day!
Then we’re going to take a little break, soak up some sun, eat lots of food and drink lots of wine, and spend lots of time with our family and friends! We will be back in action on 6 January next year.
If you need some inspiration for those last minute gifts, have a look at some of Fair Lady magazine’s colour co-ordinated gift ideas for Christmas. You may spot a few items of mine…
Here are the post office deadlines for any orders that you would like to receive by Christmas! I generally post items 1 to 2 days after the order has been placed. Items ordered on the deadline day will still be posted out the next day . Please note that it is hard to keep up to date with stock at the moment as it moves pretty quickly this time of year, so if you would like to find out about stock levels before ordering please email me, I am happy to help you during this crazy time of year!
Please also note that my studio will be closed from the 20th December to the 4th January so no orders will be posted out during that time, but you may place orders to be posted out when I am back, provided they are in stock.
NATIONAL AND LOCAL ORDERS DEADLINE
Last day to order with post office shipping option: Thursday 13th December
Last day to order with courier (same day and overnight): Tuesday 18th December
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS DEADLINE

I still have a few Christmas markets lined up so if you would like to avoid any shipping costs at all you will still have a few chances to get what you want. All market info and dates can be found here over the next few weeks.
