Melbourne cup carnival 2015 orders August 29 2015

Please note in the lead up to Melbourne Cup  carnival week  (which starts with Derby Day on 31st of October and ends with stakes day  on 7th November) the earlier you get your order in the better . Mid september to mid october is the busiest time of year for receipt  of orders . Production time stated in listings is usually extended out to a MINIMUM making time of 8 to 10 days from last week of  of September and right through October . Nothing is mass produced in advance ,and colours and materials  often sell out . I can rarely  prioritise orders during October (as pretty  much every order is for an event around the same time ).

 please order as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

3 weeks till Derby Day ! October 11 2014

Information on ordering for Melbourne cup week Race days Racing.         

Spring racing s now happening everywhere .  this means I'm  flat out making all your gorgeous orders .

current production time on standard made when ordered designs  is around 9 to 12days.

 Please do not leave it till the last minute ladies thinking theres still plenty of time to order,  every year I get volume  enquiries  from ladies in the last week of October who are very disappointed to find they've left it too late. Rush orders are rarely possible during October , I work huge hours at this time of year and do try to accommodate everyone if possible , but  there does reach a point where I reach absolute maximum production capacity and cannot squeeze in another order .

Time to get your skates on ladies if your not already organised . Happy Shopping !

PS  for those with race dates later in November ( after Melbourne cup week ) I will be taking a break directly after Cup week for 2 weeks , there will be no production or despatch between 8th and 24th November .
