Frequently Asked Questions
What happens if an item I order is out of stock?
We stock thousands of products and many of them are available via this website. We try our best to keep stock levels of our online products accurate, but occasionally an item's stock level can be wrong, most likely if the item has just been sold in our retail shop or one of the other outlets at which we sell our stock. If you order a product that is out of stock and we know more stock is due in within a few days, we will automatically put it on back order and send that item on when back in stock. If there is a delay or we cannot get the item back in stock, we will contact you by the email on your account or by telephone as soon as possible. We will either dispatch your order and follow on the product in a short time, give you the choice to backorder the item or be refunded, or refund that particular item. You can choose to cancel a backordered item at any time.
I would like to order an item that is out of stock on your website - is this possible?
It may well be!... just drop us an email or a phone call and we can advise if we are expecting new stock to be delivered.
I am a local customer and I would like to collect my order from the shop and not pay postage - is this possible?
Yes. Simply place your order online and drop us an email and we will have your order ready for collection and refund your postage cost. Please allow time for us to pack your order before collection. Please note some items are not located at our shop and can time to get ready for you to collect.
Where are you located?
We are based from our shop in Attleborough, Norfolk in the UK - Aldridge Crafts and Gifts. We also hold stock at The Exchange Vintage and Antiques in Harleston and you can arrange to collect your order there by emailing us or phoning us.
I've seen you at local events - are you available for demonstrations and talks at other events?
Yes! We regularly attend events with our mobile shop, but we can also offer talks to social groups (eg WI) or run workshops at your groups too. Contact us to discuss what you would like!
I've bought a product - but I'm not sure how to use it - can you help?
Yes - we are run by crafters - so if in doubt, contact us (us being Jane and Jon) and we can talk you through how to use your products. Alternatively, if you are a local customer, pop in and see us in the shop and we will be happy to give you a demonstration!
I'm trying to locate a product, but you don't seem to stock it - can you stock a product on request?
We will do our best to stock products on request. Contact us and if we can stock it, we'll let you know. We want our shop to be good for you... so if we're not stocking what you want - let us know!

Aldridge Crafts Loyalty Scheme
Updated scheme information as from May 2012
We appreciate your loyalty! Our website (www.aldridgecrafts.co.uk) will automatically issue and process loyalty points. For every £1 spend (in accordance with our terms and conditions below) you will achieve one loyalty point with a value of £0.05. Your points will only stay active for 24 months - so if you haven't ordered within that time, your point balance will be put to zero. If you also shop with us face-to-face, we will update your online points value manually - provided that you make us aware that you have an online account at the point of purchase. You cannot spend any loyalty points online until you have acquired 200 points (the equivalent of 40 points on our paperbased card). The online scheme is equivalent to our in store scheme in monetary return.
Loyalty Points scheme for face-to-face customers:
Don't always shop online? - then our face-to-face customer can join our loyalty scheme too!. You receive one point for every £5 spent on crafting supplies. You will be issued with a points card. Once you have accrued 40 loyalty points you will receive a £10 refund on your shop. Sorry be we are no longer able to keep records of points on your behalf, so keep your card safe as we cannot reissue lost points! If you shop online too, just alert us at the time of your transaction and we can update your online profile with your points (or your card). If you visit us at a show please make sure you ask for your loyalty points! Please note that we can only add points to your card at the time of purchase, or by authorised receipt if you have forgotton your cards. We are not able to replace missing points from credit card receipts or memory!
Terms and Conditions (The small print!)
- 40 points may be redeemed for £10 worth of crafts supplies goods at retail price for face-to-face customers. Online customers will be able to process their discount via the website once 200 points are achieved.
- £5 must be spent in one transaction and cannot be accrued over multiple transactions and can be achieved via on-line purchases and face-to-face purchases and does not include any P&P charges.
- Points cannot be redeemed for cash payment.
- Points are not available for workshop fees, club fees, handmade cards, handmade jewellery or gift vouchers, postage costs or certain sale items (which will be identified) or for redeeming your loyalty point vouchers.
- We reserve the right to amend or discontinue the loyalty scheme at any point without compensation for points accrued.
Please note that all cards and points issued under the previous company name of Jane Aldridge Handmade Cards continue to be valid for Aldridge Crafts and can also be redeemed at Aldridge Crafts for crafting supplies or gifts.
