Prepare for a long bank holiday weekend off

There’s a welcome bank holiday weekend coming up, the last chance for a mini-break before the run up to Christmas starts in earnest.

One thing you will want to do this year is to make sure you’re on top of your shipping – eBay Defects will be measured as of tomorrow so resist the temptation to take an extra day off and make sure you ship everything that you can on Friday and that all the weekends orders go out on Tuesday.
