eBay Listing Template
*** K@tZ XStitch ***

This listing is for a NEW pack of 50x Impex (now Groves) plastic floss bobbins. This item is ideal for keeping your cross stitch threads organised and tidy!

Please note: Due to Royal Mail's postage rates, whilst these bobbins are pictured in their original branded packaging, they will be supplied repackaged in a grip seal bag. In depth they are more than 25mm (1 inch) and as such are classed as a packet, which in postage alone costs £2.20 for second class delivery (30/04/2012) for 50 bobbins! By repackaging them they lay flatter and are classed as a large letter, which costs substantially less. We'll include the original branded packaging as proof that they are genuine Impex (now Groves) plastic floss bobbins. If you require them still in their original branded packaging, then the 'Other Courier (3 - 5 working days' P&P cost applies. 

All our items are stored in a sealed environment, away from direct sunlight.

If you pay by cheque, subject to the terms and conditions stated below, we will despatch your purchase within 24 hours of receipt (excluding Sundays and Bank Holidays).
