:( We've pretty much finished over at the new shop and will be taking Ye Olde Plug Shoppe down today :( It has served us well and faithfully, and it was there for us at all hours, seven days a week, but we have sadly outgrown it and must move on to pastures new.

Farewell and thank you, Ye Olde Plug Shoppe! We shall miss your quirky little Javascript shopping cart.

Please use Ye New Olde Plug Shoppe (really have to give a new name, like George, or something) or the Etsy shop for your plug-buying pleasures, thank you :)

Hello there,

Our Lovely Lovely Plugly Plug Giveaway has now ended, the entries have been verified and the winners contacted. If we don't hear from them in 48 hours we'll have another draw.

So now we wait ...

Yeah.

This is quite tense, actually.

Wednesday, 7 December 2011

We thought that we'd change the colour-scheme to match Ye New Olde Plug Shoppe. Please don't hate us :)

Wednesday, 30 November 2011

We've been working on a simplier way to make custom orders, and would like to run our New Olde Plug Shoppe by you.

It's a bit bare at the mo, and we've still got a fair amount of fiddling to do with it, but it gives you an idea of how custom ordering will work in the New Year. It is live, so you can make orders through it now, should you want to.

Any comments, suggestions, etc, then please leave a comment :)

We've been getting everything ready for the shop re-opening and have had to make a couple of changes.

We originally introduced the acrylic plugs as a low-cost sexy-plug solution, however these have become a bit of a PITA to make since we switched over to the new resin :( We will, for the time being, no longer be taking orders for custom acrylic plugs, and will be clearing the remainder of our stock with experimental designs and such.

We're working on new, improved big flares and these have been temporarily removed from custom orders as well.

This is not a permanent thing and the custom acrylic plugs and big flares will be back!


Tuesday, 8 November 2011

Hurray! We've been playing with new resins and subjecting various plugs to horrible, horrible experiments for SCIENCE, and are now upgrading our old stock with the new materials.

We're also offering a FREE upgrade to the new resins for all of you who purchased our plugs before 31st October 2011 -- please contact us by email (hello at lovelyplugly dot co dot uk) if you're interested.

Ye Olde Plug Shoppe and the Etsy Shop will hopefully be re-opening next week and will be accompanied by not one, but two giveaways -- one to say thanks to our lovely Tumblr followers and another to say thank you to everyone for sticking by us :)

Thanks everyone, you're all awesome \m/

Love from,

Lovely Plugly

We are having to close up shop for a while.

The first reason is we've been made aware of a problem with the finish of some of our plugs. As a precaution we have removed all stock for sale and will not be taking custom orders until we solve this issue. Please let us know you have had any problems with the finish at hello at lovelyplugly dot co dot uk. Any information you can give us will be helpful.

The second reason is our main plugmaker, CJ, is unwell and unable to make plugs for a while. We wish her a speedy recovery!

We will be back soon with superior products and well plugmakers. Thank you for all your support.
