Positive News About the Postal Strikes !

I have to say, despite the relentless doom & gloom from the press about the backlogs & delays etc etc my experience, as an online retailer, has been ..... nowhere near as bad as they say it is.

Every Special Delivery item we despatched turned up as it should have.

1st class mail is taking a couple of days longer on average to arrive.

So, don't believe everything you read, it's - in my experience - business pretty much as usual!

an eighties autumn ahead ...

... as we're in for a big shouldered, heavily sequinned 1980s autumn/winter on the high street, I wondered what our customers think of the bold, brassy, power dressing decade .... would you like to see more 80s or less 80s on at Martha's Closet? Come to think of it, what else would you like or of, or less of?

Any comments welcome ... we're always keen to know what you're looking for!
