    just wondered if you ladies had seen this news?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-10997640

    I have been trying to log on all weekend to order something and was getting annoyed with it.....

    Sad that people may loose their jobs but I think that as we ladies have shown it is easy to find things cheap on line and it could be expensive.

    Interesting. They do seem to price themselves out of the market a lot and sell personalised products a lot higher than their competitors. Still, I am suprised at the news, they seemed well established but the website was scatty and lacking in direction and inspiration. Shame about the jobs.

    Yes I read about this yesterday so I tried logging onto the shop & it wouldn't let me so think it is all going wrong!! Poor people losing their jobs but yes they are ay too over priced for everything really & in this day & age everything can either be found cheaper by shopping around online or by getting d.i.y happy like all us lot in here :) oh & good old ebay!!! xxx

    My MIL got the catalogue for me, yes their stuff was lovely, but hugely overpriced in my opinion. I think more and more people are doing things themselves to give their wedding a personal touch, regardless of budget. Its a shame, but I'm not overly surprised.

    Hmm, I bought some miniature heart chalkboards on sale for place names about 2 months ago, can't believe I've only just realised they've not arrived yet. Not looking good is it? Only got about £15 worth so not the end of the world, but still... :D

    have they taken the money amount of your account? I think their on line trading is still going ahead, just the shops that have closed.

    I bought them on sale at about the same time and mine came, think they were low on stock, but definitely check your bank account! I would have let you have all of mine but I gave them away as part of the favours! Good luck and I hope they turn up. xxx

    I got those as well!! They were out of stock when I ordered them but they sent them as soon as they were back in stock. They were really good value and so cute - fit my teacher theme perfectly. Hope you get it sorted. xxx
