Patka the Fat Duck
Our beautifully plump wire duck is the ideal indoor or outdoor decoration. Colourful and cheery, it is bound to bring a smile to everyone who sees it.
Made from recycled metal by a Fair Trade organisation that aims to cut down the amount of waste created by mass production and focus on reusing what is already available, it not only looks good but does good too.
Each duck is handmade and so will come with its own set of unique traits; rest assured we would never send you a duck that we didn't think you would love.
Delivery is charged as priced on each order and your purchase will be delivered to the address specified on the order confirmation.
We aim to dispatch all small items from our shop the same day or the next day depending on the time the order was placed. We will aim to do this the same day for all orders received into our shop Mon-Fri (except Bank Holidays).
Furniture, large items and items containing glass will be delivered to you by ourselves or via a courier. For this reason, delivery may take a little longer, but usually will occur between 5-10 days. You will be contacted by a member of our team as soon as delivery dates can be confirmed.
All quoted delivery prices are for most UK Mainland addresses. If you require delivery out of this area, please contact the shop on 01608 662168 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will endeavour to provide you with a quote.
Additional charges may apply if your delivery requires 2 men and/or is a significant distance from our showrooms. You will be contacted to discuss this once you have placed your order. Alternatively, please contact us for a quote beforehand.
There are a number of items which we are not able to offer for delivery. In some instances we will not post items using 3rd party couriers due to their fragility. And as we are an independent family run business the cost of delivering some items would not be viable. In these instances we can only offer free local delivery or in-store collection.
On occasion, goods are subject to availability and delay in delivery of goods is sometimes outside our control. As such, delivery cannot be guaranteed and any dates we specify for the delivery of the goods are approximate only. We will not be liable for any losses, costs, damages, charges, or expenses caused by any delay for delivery of the goods.
If you should refuse delivery of goods, or are not available to accept the delivery, you will be required to cover any extra costs incurred.

Please note that you are responsible for the costs of returning the items to us unless we delivered the item to you in error.
All return items must have original tags and packaging; and have not been installed, used, modified or damaged.

- Personal order for you only
- Sale items
- Sealed items where the seal has been broken after delivery
- Gift Vouchers
- An item that has been used beyond handling for the extent necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the item (such as you would, for example handle a display item in a shop)

We really do take care to make sure items are packaged securely to withstand damage during shipping. However, if an item looks damaged or parts are missing, please contact us as soon as possible on 01608 662168 and email us at email@example.com with a description and photo’s of the damages and we will arrange a free return of the item or shipment of the missing part(s).
*Please note that if your item appears damaged upon delivery, write "Package Damaged" when you sign for the parcel. If the package looks significantly damaged, you may refuse delivery of the package. The damaged package will be returned to us and where possible we will send you a new one. If you refuse delivery, please notify us straight away so that we can expect the return shipment.

Replacement or refund
For faulty or damaged items, you have the option of a replacement (if available) or a refund (if it’s within 30 days of you possessing the goods). Should you opt for a replacement we will make every effort to obtain the necessary replacement(s) as quickly as possible at no extra cost to you. Alternatively, if you opt for a refund, these are issued no later than 30 calendar days after receipt of the returned item(s) via the same method of payment used when you purchased the item(s). The refund will include the original delivery costs.
If a fault develops after 30 days of the goods being in your possession you may need to further prove that the fault was present at the time you took possession of the goods before we are able to offer a repair or replacement.
Our goal is to make buying online easy, safe and efficient and in the first instance, we would always encourage you to please contact us and we will make every effort to resolve any issue.
