Excellent service, first class repairs, attention to detail.

Three very different repairs ( replacement buckle elastic on sandals, shortening of sling back straps, and zip replacement on boots, all repaired with care and skill. Friendly helpful service and fairly priced. Brilliant.

Terrible chancer AVOID

I took a ladies Omega watch in for a battery replacement. I didn't ask the cost after all a battery is. battery. The type of watch is not particularly important, the cost of the battery is anywhere between £1.50 - £5.00 (giving the benefit of doubt) plus some fitting time.
The chap came back with the watch after about 15 mins, as said that's £39.99. I balked and said
"Sorry how much?" "£39.99 because it's a nice watch" I asked if it was a special battery?, it wasn't. I ask what the justification was? Because it's an expensive watch was the reply.
So if you have a decent watch, ask first. The chap on the market will do the same job for less that £10.
I won't be back and i will advertise this to as many people as I can.

The staff were brilliant. Engraving a watch for my son’s 21st on an impossibly small area (the clasp) as the back of the watch was branded. They went out of their way to have it ready on time. Very hard-working, professional and friendly.

Brilliant Leather Craftsmanship

I went in with an expensive pair of leather boots that I wanted height reduced. Andy did an amazing job- they were as new and much better than I expected. Excellent craftsmanship- I recommend highly!

Next Level!

In November i went in with a potentially tricky engraving idea for a bracelet that i was giving my partner for her birthday. 7 Roman numerals & 29 Numbers & characters forming coordinates.

To hand engrave this on the inside of such a slender piece of jewellery would take a huge of amount of skill! It was just a shot in the dark so would have understood if it wasn’t possible but they assured me that Andy could do it later that week.

Andy was even kind enough to call to have a quick chat with me. He wanted me to know that wasn’t going to be 100% perfect but that he could definitely do it. He was so friendly and confident about it that i was instantly put at ease & felt more than happy to trust him with the bracelet. I was blown away by the finished article, he absolutely smashed it and i love the fact that it had so much genuine character due to it being an authentic hand engraving. He has a proper cool style.

To me & most importantly, my partner, it WAS perfect. Buzzin👌🏼
