Fathers Day Gift Ideas

Posted August 29, 2008 By Admin

Not long to go now until Father’s Day and we’ve got heaps of great gift ideas available right now.  If you get your orders in quickly, we’ll do everything we can to get it there on time.

We have just received our latest order of books from the USA so check out the BOOK category for lots of fantastic titles.  We have reactivated the “out of stock” titles and have a few more new ones to add such as the Vargas Faceting Diagrams I and II, Gold Panning and some great geology and fossil books. 

Another order we have been waiting anxiously for was from Lortone – we were very low on stock but we have just unpacked the boxes and now have plenty of 3A and 33B Lortone tumblers as well as the vibratory TV-5 from Raytech.

Note on freight – if you are planning a gift purchase, please keep in mind delivery times from northern NSW.  Urgent orders should request courier delivery but this is road freight and can still take some time to more remote locations.  If you have any concerns, just call us on our Toll Free number: 1800 50 21 40.  And remember, we do offer Gift Vouchers to make gift giving even easier.

Cheers for now from Andrew and Leah (www.aussiesapphire.com.au)
