We seem outsized but, well, we’re a tiny little shop. We try hard to make sure that the stuff online matches the stuff in shop, and we try to keep a few different sizes of things in the shop. If your item is not in stock because we don’t have your size, and the site showed that we don’t have the size, please allow six to eight weeks for delivery. If you ordered & there is confusion, don’t fret — we’re on top of it and will let you know the skinny asap! If you want to know for absolute sure before you place an order, please write to us!
