In my family, we don’t normally start the Christmas countdown until after my birthday in December, however, this year may have to be a little different…
We're doing all our shopping and planning extra early this year. As the owner of an independent business that manufactures in small batches, I have seen first-hand the effects the pandemic has had on the toy industry supply chain. Raw materials have been more difficult to source, the work force has been reduced either in size or in working hours which in turn has meant longer manufacturing lead times. And the logistics of transportation has been affected either because of reduced schedules or back-logs at points of import entry.
We pride ourselves on having every item at A Girl For All Time carefully created for you to enjoy. However, this year, we won't be able to restock sold-out items before Christmas, unlike previous years. So if you see an item you want for Christmas delivery in our current in-stock items, please do consider ordering them as soon as possible.
The pandemic has affected the toy-making supply chains meaning that it may be more difficult for you to get your gifts last minute. But with a little planning, your Christmas will be as fantastic as ever.
In shopping early this year you will be able to ensure that your family and friends all get their gifts on time, whilst supporting your favourite small businesses. So be sure to get your favourite girl while stocks last.
