G’ day Jerks,
Just a quick note to let you all know that unfortunately it’s time for our prices to increase. We’ve been absorbing rises across the board since we started back in 2020 and it’s reached a point where we just can’t keep it up. Hopefully you understand and will continue to support our small family run business.
Shannon and Mark ;)
