So what's been going on with Taro lately I hear you screaming!!… no? oh well I'll tell you anyway.  So after the huge success of my trip to Chicago's Adepticon a little over a month ago I flew back to the UK to realise I couldn't bare going to back to work at my job (granted I was only working two days a week but even that was to much) So I quit! Running this store is now my full time job and I couldn't be happier!! So a massive thank you to every single one of you that has...

Covid Update following Gov announcement

Posted by james taro on

As of 31st October the UK government has announced the UK is to enter a nationwide lockdown as of Thursday 5th November. While this sounds like a dramatic change it is in fact going to have very little effect on the running of my store or indeed my day to day life.  We have been told to continue working if we cannot work from home so I will still be travelling to my day job and my children will be continuing to go to school. I will still be able to post parcels as all post offices will remain open. ...
