Eileens Emporium Newsletter January 2017

Postby derekrussan » Thu Jan 26, 2017 9:09 pm

Welcome to our latest newsletter. We are now well into the winter season and are therefore looking forwards to the many up and coming shows. It has been a while since the last newsletter as we have very busy improving our website to provide a better service to you all.

On our website you may have noticed that we have changed the way in which metal strips, piercing saw blades, BA nuts and bolts and a few other products are selected. Hopefully this makes the products you want easier to find and more obvious as to the choices available. We will be continuing this process to cover more products as time permits.


A list of exhibitions we will attend in the next few months are shown at the end of this newsletter, and the latest information is as always on our website: http://www.eileensemporium.com

If you are planning to go to either Leamington and Warwick or Kettering, preordering is strongly advised as we will have to split the stock between the shows.

We have, for the first time, accepted an invitation to the Macclesfield Show (11/12 March).

Our first time exhibiting at Derby will be 6/7 May.

We have accepted an invitation to the Scalefour Society AGM (Members only) on June 17th.

Expo EM North has developed into a nice show, but had to change venues a year ago, then move back and now have to move again to the same venue as 2015 (9/10 September to be confirmed).

The Wigan Show will be 1 week earlier than last year. This year it is on 30 September & 1 October 2017 to avoid a clash with Great Electric Train Show (Gaydon).


Several new products are now in stock.

After a long absence, we have finally managed to obtain a supply of 1.5mm silver steel rod. This is not a sustainable source and will not last for ever.

In response to customer request we now have the following in stock:

Scissors 4" SCIS4
Mini Pegs Pack 6 SLDPG
Deluxe Living Steam 90ml DLLS
Deluxe Brush Magic 125ml DLBM
Deluxe Strip Magic 125ml DLSM
Deluxe Solid Water 90ml DLSW


We have now found an alternative source for 1.5 X 1mm tubes and are available on our website.

Avonside Chassis2 Superpro (7mm) are in stock, but the Pro and Lite versions are awaiting one component which will be about 3 to 4 weeks.

All Hold and Fold, except 5.5" and 14", are in stock. These are under manufacture and should be available within a few weeks.


We continue to see supplier price increases on many products blamed on exchange rates. Wherever possible we are holding our prices.

Prices have already been increased on Evergreen products and we do not anticipate any further increases. We are informed that Plastruct will increase on 1 February 2017.

Balancing this our export customers will be benefiting from this and getting lower prices because of improved exchange rates.


We have a special offer valid until the end of February 2017. We are offering 10% off all Nuts, Bolts and Washers, this also includes some Rivets and Split pins. To be specific, all products under the "Fasteners & Fixings (Screws Nuts & Bolts)" heading on the products page. These offers are for retail sales only and are only valid for orders placed before the end of day on Tuesday 28 February 2017. For all offers please enter NUTSOFFER in the Coupon box on checkout and do not forget to give the show name for collection in the comment box if appropriate.

Full details of all our other products are on our website.

Derek, Anita, Matt and Judith.

Forthcoming Exhibitions:

Do not forget that you can beat the queues at shows by pre-ordering through the website. There is a checkout option for this. You can choose to pay through the website or on collection. Please state in the 'Comments' box which show you wish to collect the order from.
