We offer ‘Pre-orders’ on all new season products from February of each year through to 30th April.  The ‘Pre-order’ system gives you a chance to secure the new season products as well as receive a discount off full retail price.  The discount percentage can vary on each product.  ‘Pre-orders’ will be shipped as soon as the product arrives in stock (this is usually middle of May).  On receipt of purchase Gnomes will advise the customer on approximate delivery date.   From time to time a product line may be cancelled and not delivered from the New Zealand importer, in this case a best match alternative will be offered or a full refund on the product which has been cancelled.  No refunds for ‘change of mind’ will be issued on ‘Pre-orders’ products.
