As much as many of us might not want to know about it, they will be here faster than you can say Santa's Sleigh! Christmas Holidays.
For the first time in 8 years, we are taking a real break here at Sequins and Sand. Time to recharge after an exhausting year and to be with family. We've missed them with business taking more time away from them than we'd like. Here's what's happening.
In our many years of online trade, this time of year, despite every one's bets efforts, does mean the occasional parcel getting lost and taking longer to arrive, even express post. It's the huge volume at this time of year that does it. So with this is in mind we think the last 'safe post day' before Christmas Day, to avoid this as much as possible, is Tuesday the 19th December.
Let's get on with the basics, the Public Holidays and No Post Days:
: 25th Dec - Christmas Day - on a Monday this year.
: 26th Dec - Boxing Day - Tuesday
: 29th Dec - Australia Post Holiday - Friday
: 1st Jan - New Years Day - Monday
S&S is closed in between the public and no post days - between Christmas Day and New Year's Day and a few more. You can still place your orders but they will not be dispatched until Thursday the 4th January.
4th-7th January 2018 - there will be limited dispatching. Some girls are able to help here and there with getting orders out.
8th January - Monday - Business as usual Online. Clearing the back log and getting parcels out as quickly as we can.
12th January - Friday - Studio Ashgrove, Brisbane re-opens.
I hope that all makes sense girls. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to Contact Us to clear things up.

Here's you to and your family this Festive Season. I hope you have a wonderful real break too.
