Purchasing Pre-ordered stock

When purchasing an item that is on pre-order you are ordering stock that is not currently in our warehouse and is yet to be shipped or is in transit. The date of availability can change with shipping delays so we can only give an estimated date of arrival. As soon as the stock is in our hands we endeavour to get it delivered to you as quickly as humanly possible. We will keep you in the loop with emails and updates on our social media~ @softlysummer

IMPORTANT SHIPPING NOTE FOR PRE-ORDERED ITEMS- When purchasing an item on pre-order you can purchase items that are currently ‘in stock’ in the same order but they will all be delivered together at the time of the pre-ordered items arrival. If you require your ‘in stock’ items to be delivered sooner you will be required to make two orders. This is because of the seperate shipping costs.
