Who You Are Buying From

The term a little bit of nice or ‘us’ or ‘we’ refers to Karen Barclay and the term ‘you’ refers to the user or viewer of our Website.


  • For all ready made items the prices are as stated on our website. Bespoke items are priced according to the design, size etc and will be agreed with you as part of the ordering process. This will be detailed in a letter to yourselves as part of our on-going communication with yourselves.
  • Unless otherwise stated all our prices are exclusive of VAT as we are not VAT registered.
  • If we need to increase the cost of a product due to any factor beyond our control ie significant cost rise of labour, materials, foreign exchange fluctuation, we reserve the right by giving you notice at any time before delivery.  This is however unlikely and you shall be entitled to cancel the order at any time before delivery of the goods and /or we have commenced providing the services.

Contracts: How they are formed 

  • When you place an order we translate this into an offer by you to purchase the goods and/or services within the order. This is subject to these Terms and Conditions and any details on the product page.
  • Initially we will contact you via email to acknowledge your order. Due to the nature of the bespoke quilts we shall spend some time with yourselves gathering as much information as we and you require to ensure all the details are included on your quilt. When we are both happy that everything has been covered we will send you a detailed letter including all the information we have collected to ensure we are both happy before commencing the work. The contract between you and us will relate only to those goods detailed in the letter.
  • Purchases may be paid for by cheque or bank transfer. We ask for a 50% deposit for all bespoke items and we ensure all payments are cleared before the commencement or dispatch of the goods or services to you.
  • Orders for stock items will be supplied within a maximum of 30 days from the date we accept your order.
  • Orders for bespoke items are likely to exceed 30 days, if an item is required for a specific date then we will agree this before accepting your order. In all other circumstances we will provide an estimated delivery date before your order is confirmed, however this may be subject to some flexibility in busy periods and we will keep you informed throughout.
  • We may refuse to process a transaction for any reason or refuse service at our sole discretion. We will not be liable to you or any third party by reason of so refusing or by reason of unwinding or suspending any transaction after processing has begun.
  • We respectfully ask that all clothes posted to us are packaged in a sealed plastic bag inside a strong cardboard box securely bound with packing tape to ensure safe delivery. Please label these clearly with our name and address and the sender details. We have found the best service to be Royal Mail next day delivery tracked and signed but obviously if you prefer another courier that is your choice. Please be aware that we cannot be held responsible for clothing that goes missing either to us or back to you and all items are posted at your risk. The cost of postage is payable by the client and this includes the cost of returning any unused items to yourself, we shall inform you of the cost of returning the items and once the payment has cleared we shall return them to you.
  • Once the items are received by us they are placed into labelled sealed plastic boxes for safety until we commence the quilt.
  • Where we are prevented from or delayed in carrying out obligations under these customer terms due to circumstances beyond our control including acts of God, governmental actions, war or national emergency, riot, civil commotion, fire, explosion, flood, inclement weather, epidemic, lock-outs, strikes or other labour disputes (whether or not relating to our workforce), or restraints or delays affecting carriers or an inability or delay in obtaining supplies of adequate or suitable materials then the performance of our obligations shall be postponed for the period of time that the circumstance continue.
  • We will of course bear the costs of returning any clothing to you and refund all monies due if we are unable to complete your order.
