Store hibernating (Holiday Break)


Dear Ants HQ colony, Thank you for the incredible and ever-growing support that you guys and girls keep us giving. As a small business, we can't thank you enough. We've been able to grow from stength to strength because of this and are preparing for more exciting projects ahead. Keep your eyes and antennaes peeled! It has been non-stop this year and whilst we have enjoyed every bit of it, we will now be taking a short break to enjoy with friends and family, until the new year. What does this mean? From Wednesday 22nd of December - Monday 10th of January we will be out of the office and not replying to any e-mails. The store will continue to accept orders as normal but these will not be sent until January - Monday 10th and Tuesday 11th. Please take this into consideration prior to placing an order. Sincerely wishing you happy holidays and a great start to the new year ahead. The team at Ants HQ
