Delivery – True artisan goods, by their very nature, contain few preservatives and as such the store holds little stock. Whilst this means we can't provide an 'amazon style' next day service, it does mean that your order will always arrive in optimum condition. The moment your order is received, the relevant artisan will dispatch the required items, usually for next day delivery to us. Unlike sites like Yumbles and The Food Market, we are not a listings site (a listing site purely takes the your order before passing the details on to the artisan. The downside of this is that if you order ten items you will receive ten parcels...one from each artisan. Not only is this highly inconvenient but it also has a negative impact on the environment). With the artisan general store you can rest assured that you will receive the one delivery, which has been carefully packed by our artisan team.
Upon receipt at the general store, these items will be despatched via the routes detailed below.
