Once again, thanks to all our customers for their support and tolerance during this crisis. We hope you find the new website easy to use. If you have any issues please let us know.

We are open for business and trying as hard as we can to get as many orders out as possible. It is much more efficient for us if you are able to place your orders on the website.

Please note, most products are normally in stock (in normal times}. These are not normal times and suppliers are having issues, so we some normally stocked items are slow to arrive. An item being shown as available to order does not guarantee they are in stock at that time. We are working hard on modifications to the website to show live stock levels.

Please do not send orders by post, they will not be processed, we have not been in a position to accept cheque payments since all our local banks closed.

We are suppliers of a wide range of tools, equipment and materials needed by all model makers, whatever their level of experience or expertise. Many of these products are also useful for other activities including Antiques Restoration, Clock Making, Craft and Beading etc.

Eileen's Emporium have been in business for over 30 years. See "About Us" for historical details.


We have now resumed international shipments, with a few changes. At present we are only shipping items that can go by post. This means that there are limitations with a maximum of 610mm packed length, maximum of 2kg with no Royal Mail banned or dangerous items. After suffering a number of  postal losses at the end of last year we are now tracking all international shipment for security which has increased the shipping costs. We are working on resuming international courier deliveries but with the current complexities will take some time.

Deliveries to Europe are currently being shipped without VAT being added, so shipments will be subject to Tax and Handling charges at your border and will need to be paid by you. We are close to implementing a Tax paid solution using IOSS which will slightly increase the shipping cost but should be a lot cheaper than the Post/Courier Tax handling charges. We will keep you informed of progress.

We have also been told by Swann Morton that we are no longer able to send their Blades to USA, Canada and Australia. This seems to be caused by some complexity of CE marking and medical grade products. Although the products we sell are not declared Sterile, the rules still apply. Beaurocratic hogwash that we have to follow.
