Our Summer vacation is approaching, please plan your orders on time

summer

Please note: We will be closed for the first 2 weeks of August.  Every time our vacation approached it becomes a little bit tensely here as many people decide to order in the very last moment.

All small orders which are received and paid by 10.00 o’clock Bulgarian time on 31th of July, have decent chances to be shipped same day, for the bigger orders if we can’t manage to handle them same day they will be shipped on August 17th when we are back from our vacation, so please plan your orders in advance next week and do not wait Friday to place your order 🙂
