Making a Contract with Us

When you place an order with us, you are making an offer to buy goods. We will send you an e-mail to confirm that we have received and accept your order, and that a contract has been made between us.

In the unlikely event that the goods are no longer available, we may provide you with a refund or supply you with substitute goods. If you decide not to accept the substitute goods, you will not have to pay to return them to us.

When you place an order with us we automatically add you to our subscriber list for our e-mail campaigns. This is so you can be aware of our latest offers and exclusive deals. If you do not wish to receive e-mails then please email.


Our 'Standard' delivery is £5.99 no matter how large your order.

Standard delivery is available to all UK addresses including Northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Scilly Isles and the Channel Islands.

Orders are dispatched via our couriers 'Hermes' usually within 72 hours and normally delivered to your door within 7-14 days from date of placing. We offer free delivery insurance covering your parcel for loss or damage during transit.

We regret we are currently unable to deliver any service to Eire.

Any problems at all with your delivery, please contact us in the first instance 0871 472 4266.

Cancellation and Returns

You can cancel your contract at any time up to 14 working days after the day of delivery. Under the Consumer Contracts (Information, Additional Charges & Cancellation) Regulations 2013 you have a 14 day period following the day after delivery in which to cancel this contract. To do this, please email us or write to us at: Bits And Pieces, PO Box 98, Driffield, YO25 9DJ.

You do not have to give any reason for cancellation. However, a brief explanation will help us to improve the service we offer to customers in the future.

If you cancel, you must return the goods to us at your own expense. You must ensure that the goods are packaged adequately to protect against damage.

If you fail to take reasonable care of goods before they are returned to us, and this results in damage or deterioration, we will charge you for the reduction in value.

Please be aware returns can take up to 28 days to complete processing.

This cancellation policy does not affect your legal rights - for example, if goods are faulty or misdescribed.

Faulty Goods

If there is a problem with the goods, please contact us. We will deal with the matter in accordance with your legal rights.
