Overseas Enquiries

Always welcome but please be aware that the cost may be different

Maypoles – These are heavy and an awkward shape so shipping costs can nearly double the cost. Give us a FULL postal address and I can get you a quotation. Alternatively some people have created their own base and pole (the heavy bits) and purchased a crown and braids. If you want to do this then we can offer advice on the design.

Books, CDs etc – With the new customs regulations it is sometimes easier for me to pass on you on to other distributors who have set up systems for exports. I will always check they have the products in stock if that happens and keep you informed of progress.
