Frequently Asked Questions

How long will it take for my order to arrive?

All our products are hand made and dispatched in 1-2 days from our studio in the Peak District UK, unless otherwise stated. Estimated delivery in the UK is 1-2 working days when selecting 1st Class of Royal Mail 24 at checkout. 2nd Class or Royal Mail 48 is supposed to be 2-3 working days, but we've found it can be more like 5 working days at busier times of the year. There will be strike action taking place throughout December that will impact on delivery times. Please bare this in mind and place your orders as early as possible. Estimated delivery time for international orders is 7-14 working days. See customer care for more information.

What should I do if my order has not arrived?

UK orders which have not arrived within 10 working days of placing your order should contact us at International orders which have not arrived after 20 working days of placing your order should contact us at If your item has not arrived but has been marked as dispatched, we ask you to follow the steps below:

  • Check the estimated processing and delivery times given on the product listing and at the checkout ensuring you have taken into account 'working days'.
  • Check with your neighbours incase the order has been left with them.

Poppins & Co is not responsible for items lost due to errors made when entering an address at checkout, so please ensure your details are accurate. We reserve the right not to refund or reship items lost due to this kind of mistake.

Poppins & Co is not responsible for order consignments once they are marked as 'delivered' by any third-party postage services both domestic and internationally, but will always endeavour to ensure our orders reach our valued customers, and in most cases will refund, or re-deliver lost items.

Where is my tracking information?

If your consignment is tracked, your tracking details will be in your dispatch notification sent to the email address you provided at the checkout. We use delivery confirmation tracking on all orders larger than a single small card, and full-tracking on international orders. We do not provide tracked services on single small card orders because it is simply not cost effective for you the customer, or for us running a small business. Royal Mail has a 98% delivery success rate, and you can be sure that we will always ensure that your order gets to you, and you are never out of pocket because of a missing order.
