Thank you to all of our regular customers for your support over the past couple of weeks (and before then of course!) Welcome to our many new customers as well! Please contact me if there's something specific I can order for you, if you have any questions or suggestions.
For overseas Christmas orders, please order by Monday 13th December, Air Mail generally takes 7-10 days from Australia. Within Australia, please order and pay for your Christmas gift orders by Friday 17th December (Direct Deposit), or Sunday 19th December (PayPal), for posting within Australia. If you live in Tassie or Western Australia, it's a good idea to allow a little extra time at this time of year, as mail can be delayed during busy periods. Spiral Garden is located near Tarzali, which is a village in rural Far North Queensland.
Express Post can be arrange for a small extra fee (for any parcels over 500g). Please contact me if you require Express Post.
We will not be closed over the Christmas and New Year period. Parcels will be delayed due to public holidays, but we are available to send your orders as quickly as usual.
Do you need specific items for back-to-school? Most art supplies are in stock, but if there's something else you need, let me know soon as I need to order Main Lesson Books and other goodies from Mercurius. I also plan to stock a lot more homeschooling, unschooling and Steiner education books from January 2011 - please let me know of titles you're after!My office is still overflowing with tea sets, craft kits, soaps, lip balms, games and toys... Crayon Rocks are still available in both sizes. I look forward to receiving your orders and packing them with care, and taking a bit of stress out of the shopping event of the year!
Seasonal Blessings from our family to yours...
