Trade Accounts

At Habbydays, we seek to support other small businesses.  With that in mind, we are pleased to offer trade accounts to makers and crafters who sell their creations and, as a consequence, perhaps  buy more than the average hobbyist. If that sounds like you, then get in touch and we may be able to offer you a discount off the retail prices listed on the site.

Contact us at to discuss.

  • A trade account application shall be made in writing, either via email or post.
  • To fully process a trade account application, we require:
    • Trading name, trading address, email and phone number(s), primary contact details and, where applicable company information such as if the application is on behalf of a limited company, PLC, LLP or partnership.
    • Two supplier references from existing suppliers.
    • Where supplier references are not possible, a trade account can be opened on a “pay-as-you-go” basis. Habbydays may offer a credit account to customers who have operated on this basis for some time and have established a relationship with Habbydays
    • An initial order of not less than £100 excluding postage and packaging.
  • Product availability : Habbydays is not required to make all products available to trade customers, e.g. licensing restrictions on some fabrics where it cannot be used for commercial purposes or dressmaking patterns where the designer has specified that the finished garments cannot be sold on.
  • Pricing :
    • Trade account customers will be offered a discount off the standard price shown on the Habbydays website or on the marked prices of items in the showroom. This discount will be decided on a customer to customer basis and agreed by both parties on acceptance of these terms and conditions when the trade account is opened.
    • Trade account discounts will not apply to sale prices. When a trade customer wishes to purchase an item offered at a sale price, the trade discount will be applied to the original price or offered at the sale price without any additional discount, whichever is lower.
    • Trade account customers cannot use any discounts or coupon codes in addition to their trade discount.
  • Payment
    • Trade account customers on a “pay-as-you-go” account will be required to pay in full at the point of order. Orders will not be prepared e.g. fabric will not be cut, until payment has been received.
    • Trade Account customers who have a credit account promise that all orders will be paid to Habbydays by the end of the month following the month in which the invoice or order confirmation is dated. e.g. all orders placed throughout March will require payment in full by the end of April.
    • Any orders that are not paid in full in accordance with these terms will result in all outstanding orders being withheld and no new orders processed until outstanding payments are made, and all subsequent orders will require to be paid in full at the point of order as with a probationary account.
    • If Habbydays is required to employ legal services to recover payment for any outstanding debts, the trade account customer agrees that the cost of these services plus any administrative fees that Habbydays may incur will be added to the debt.
