Lovely Tinder patrons & folks who visit often … you may have gathered from the clues & hints dropped in recent posts … yes indeed, Tinder shopkeepers are going on a summer holiday!

From Mon 26 July … in 2 days time {or T-48 hours and counting} at sunset … the Tinder shop will be on vacation too, for the month of August … hooray!

Tinder shop orders will resume upon our return, once we unpack exciting new deliveries & re-stock the shelves, etcetera … so we’ll see you in September …!

We’ll keep you posted right here, via Tinder NEWS/tinderblog … thanks so much for visiting our wee shop & blog, kind folks!
