Delivery & Returns

COVID-19 UPDATE – Extended Returns

Just a little update from the Attic . . .

Firstly, we just want to say we hope you are all OK and keeping safe and well in these worrying times.

We have had a lot of people asking if we are still open so we though we would send you a little update.

Yes, we are still open. It is just me and Mr Attic, aka, Amanda & Steve and we are very fortunate (if that doesn’t sound too flippant) that we live two minutes away from the new Attic base. We are now based on a farm and we see no one else while we are here.

We have systems in place with Royal Mail to hand over any parcels without having to have contact with the delivery drivers so no one is put at any risk. So, as long as Royal Mail still function then we will remain open

We are anti-bac-ing the hell out of everything and hand sanitising all the way.

Also, we are now EXTENDING OUR RETURNS PERIOD. Any orders place during this time can be returned up to 30 days from receipt. Once all this is over and we can return to some sense of normality, we will restart the 14 days returns period.

It does seem rather trivial to chat about fashion at this time but we are taking this time to have a flippin good stock take and list lots of samples and one offs so there are lots of bargains to be had and more added daily.

Also, we do have a fab book club if you want somewhere to join in on friendly, book related chat. Pop over to Facebook and join in here.

Lastly, if we can do anything to help, please get in touch – we are always here for a chat. Stay safe and keep well.

Lots of love

Amanda & Steve and the Attic boys! xx


We aim to ship most orders within 3-5 working days but this might be slightly longer during busy times or for items that are on pre-order.

Delivery, once shipped, is usually 2 working days as we ship packages out on a 48 hour Royal Mail dispatch, but it might be longer in exceptional circumstances, or if it’s an international package (10-15 working days).

Please allow up to seven working days for your order to arrive before contacting us.

A signature is not required upon delivery. If no one is available to take delivery of the item, Royal Mail will leave the item in a safe place or they will take it back to the local delivery office for you to collect.
