I never got a chance to thank you guys for the service I received when buying my father a woolen jumper for Christmas quite a few moons ago. Excellent online shop & service, and my father was very happy with the jumper.....though being from the UK it did slip my mind that its summer in NZ at Christmas. Many thanks.
