Welcome to the handmade and surrealist's answer to Iwantoneofthose....


The result of eccentricity and enjoyment of creating personalised presents has brought us here today.

I've got 8 years experience working in Online Retail and this has led me to crave a FUN online shopping experience.

This is the very early stages of a new retail movement - come and join the fun!

Shopping on the high street is great because you get to stop and eat cake at some point throughout the course of the day.

What does ONLINE have to offer though? WHERE'S THE CAKE?!

To make up for the lack of cake - unless you fancy popping round here to see what we are making at the moment - and to sample whatever baked goods we have on the go (send me an email!) , I am bringing you bizarre and silly handmade items.

I am not a total weirdo - I promise! It is just that when I was buying yet another of my friends a mundane gift from their online wedding list, I snapped.

I said to myself - "No. I will NOT buy another napkin ring again - EVER - no matter how shiny...".

The CUKOOKY tea cosy was born. And the rest is history. I was hooked.

Please spend some time looking at my products - I'd love to hear your thoughts. Come and leave comments on my blog posts,

If you would like to know more about CUKOOKY, get yo' pretty ass over to - there is silly stuff as well as some much less silly stuff relating to how to sell your products/services online.

Accepted payment methods

Please pay by PayPal immediately after placing your order. Please note you can pay through PayPal without having a PayPal account.

If you choose to pay by PayPal e-cheque this will delay shipping until payment is cleared. This can take 5 working days.

Please make payment within 48 hours of ordering. If I do not hear from you in this time I will assume you have changed your mind and will re-list the item.

Please note items will NOT be shipped, or custom orders made, until payment is cleared.
With exception of custom made items, all items will be shipped within 3-4 working days of payment. Custom made items will vary in production time, so I can advise individually on when shipping can be expected to take place.

Items will be delivered through Royal Mail First Class Recorded Signed For within the United Kingdom which will take approximately 3-5 working days.

Items sent outside the United Kingdom will be sent by Royal Mail Airsure if this is available for the destination country (Please check or message me for further details). All other international orders will be sent by Royal Mail International Signed For. Both will take approximately 7-15 working days depending on the destination country.

All items will be packed very carefully, but unfortunately I cannot guarantee their safe arrival. It is at the buyers risk if in the rare case an item becomes damaged or lost in the mail. Please email me if you would like to purchase insurance at an additional cost.

If you need your item faster, please email me for priority delivery options.

All items will be shipped automatically to the PayPal address. If you would like to ship to an alternative address please email me ASAP after you place your order.

The buyer is responsible to ensure the shipping address is correct. Refunds will not be given if the item is returned to sender due to incorrect details given.

Please note that custom charges may be applicable and will be the sole responsibility of the buyer.
Refunds and Exchanges
Due to the nature of the items I am unable to offer refunds or exchanges unless faulty.

In the rare case of a problem please email me immediately and I am sure we can work it out.
Additional policies and FAQs
Each CUKOOKY product is individually handmade in or just outside the lovely cottage I am lucky enough to live in, in rural Wiltshire. Everything is hand-sewn, hand-sawn, hand-baked, hand-painted or hand-glued by me or my partner-in-craft, the gorgeous and curly-haired Craigy K.

This means that I cannot guarantee that all items will look exactly as listed in my shop - in fact I can pretty much guarantee they won't! That is sort of the point though. Such are the joys of handmade! If anything is to vary too hugely from the listed item, I will let you know in advance.

I started out making custom gifts for family and friends - and am more than happy to keep coming up with new designs. If you would like to discuss a customised item for you or someone you know, I'd be delighted.

Please email me if you have any special requirements. I am online throughout most days, so if you need anything else please contact me via my website,
