We work really hard to make sure our website mirrors the items we have got on the shelves in our actual shop, so as items sell the stock levels will change both online and in store. So you will actually see in real time that items do go out of stock, If there's only two of an item on the shelf and you ask for three the web shop will only sell the two we have. If an item is out of stock why not fill in a back in stock form. What will happen is as soon as the web shop knows there's new stock it will automatically alert you that it's back in stock. Please don't forget that we're only human working in the back ground so sometimes there may be a glitch but this is very rare.
