New products on website

Over the last couple of weeks we have been working on the website. We have removed the limited edition products that have sold out, added now replacement products so you can look after your heirloom boxes. We have also added the slimline 6 inch box that we had so many requests to re introduce.

Sad to see the end of this lovely box
