Message to my UK visitors
I appreciate this is a very difficult time for us all. I personally am really hoping that we can get some normality back to our lives after 2 or 3 months of isolation . Lets all follow the govenments advice and keep ourselves and our loved ones safe. We will beat this virus and get back to our regular lives soon.
I will not be going out to visit my customers during this time. However, I will be more than happy to chat with you either by phone or via the contact form. You can send me some rough sizes and photos of your window/s. I can then give you some ideas if you need, of what I can do. Also a guide to what it's likely to cost.
If you are interested in curtains I can at this moment get fabric samples posted out to you at home. Then when it's safe and we are all back up to speed again. I can call over and measure up properly if you live within 30 miles of Manchester.
If it's a custom made bay window curtain track you are interested in. Then I can deliver these to all of mainland UK.
