We wish you a Merry Christmas ……


The  presents are all wrapped and under the Christmas tree here at Proops and we are almost ready for Christmas.   We are all feeling very festive after having our annual Christmas Jumper Day in aid of Loros and the Linic and Proops Christmas Dinner and Skittles Championship!

Christmas Jumper day in aid of Loros, everyone got into the spirit and gave a donation to wear their jumpers!

We had a great staff night out with a meal and a game of skittles at our local pub.  It did get quite competitive during the skittles game but thankfully everyone is still on speaking terms!!

Presenting the Winners Trophy to the Champion ‘Skittler’, Darren who scooped the prize after scoring a perfect strike on his last throw!

We are working right up until Friday 22nd December and will be processing orders until 11am when the post leaves.  Unfortunately we cannot guarantee any delivery dates on orders placed this week as we are in the hands of Royal Mail and the courier companies and as both are so busy at this time of year, combined with holidays this inevitably results in everything taking a little longer to get to it’s destination.  Orders placed between Christmas and New Year will be processed, however, there could be a delay in dispatching over the bank holidays.

This has been a fantastic year and we would like to thank all of our customers for their support. We have more new products to list for 2018 and some new candle moulds in the pipeline so do come back and visit the website at the beginning of the year.

Our New Year’s resolutions are to continue to provide good customer care and quality products at a reasonable price.  We hope you will continue to shop with us.

Thanks for stopping by.  We hope you have a lovely Christmas and a very happy New Year.  See you all in 2018.














All I want for Christmas ……….

Have you started Christmas shopping yet?  I know, I know its still only November but it seems to get foisted on us earlier and earlier each year by the supermarkets and department stores.  I have already seen the eagerly anticipated Christmas adverts for most of the big stores and negotiated my way passed the miles (okay slight exaggeration here) of aisles of wrapping paper, cards and decorations in the local Co-op just to pick up some bread or milk.  Is it any wonder we get a little jaded and fed up by the time the day itself arrives.

I know I am sounding more than a little like the Grinch who stole Christmas and I’m truly not, I absolutely love Christmas…. the decorations, the food, the atmosphere, the presents. What I don’t enjoy is the crush of frantic people loading their trolleys with every loaf of bread in the shop just in case they run out in the one day that the shop actually closes or practically body slamming me out of the way to grab that jumper or scarf they just have to have for their loved ones. I also don’t enjoy having to perform a striptease in every shop I go into because otherwise I’m likely to pass out from heat exhaustion in my layers of thermals and woollies before I make it through the cosmetic counters, since I’ve dressed for the freezing temperatures outside and not the tropical temperatures inside.  It’s the one time of year that online shopping is truly a blessing and once I have all the big or difficult to carry presents nailed and delivered to the door, I can enjoy wandering around the Christmas markets with a cup of mulled wine picking up little extras for everyone without any pressure and then I stop feeling like the Grinch and start feeling like Mrs Santa Claus (I even have the outfit!!).

If you are looking for tools for gifts, we will be processing orders right up until the Friday before Christmas with deliveries until Saturday 23rd (though we are in the hands of Royal Mail and the courier here) and our standard no quibble returns applies to anything you buy so if it turns out it’s not the perfect present for them or they already have one, it can be returned to us for a full refund or exchange.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week.
