How to order

There are two ways to order items from the emporium; I don’t mind which you use.
1. select the appropriate postage for the country you want the item delivered to, and click "add to cart". You can add lots of different items if you wish. Then click to go to the checkout and pay online with your credit or debit card. Postage is automatically calculated.

2. Phone me up or send an email or even write a letter (contact details below) and ask me whether what you want is in stock, or can be obtained. This works almost as quickly as using the shopping cart; also it works just as well for secondhand items and even ones I have not yet managed to get in stock. I’ll give you a total price to pay (including postage) and you can post me a cheque (UK pounds sterling, drawn on a UK bank, payable to “Early Gaelic Harp Info”), or send money via PayPal/credit card, or make a bank transfer. Click here for more payment details including bank info and a credit card payment facility.

If there is an item you are looking for but which is not listed here, let me know - I may well be able to find it for you.

Please ask to be put on the mailing list, to be sent details of new additions to the stock.

Returns: If you are dissatisfied in any way, please return the items for a full refund.
