    I think the nearest supplier is Maco Direct in Germany, I'm not aware of a UK stockist.

    I'll see if I can find anywhere and come back to you bud.

    My gift has been sent. I was going to include some sweets, but when I got to the post office, it turns out that foodstuffs may not be allowable to be sent via mail to some eastern European countries, and I didn't want to risk the time delay of the parcel being returned, so I removed them and they've just got some rolls of film instead. I think the total cost, including postage, has come to just over $30.

    I wonder what I'll get?

    Cheers guys, they were the only two places I as able to find too. I would have bought from Parallax but their postage is £5.95, so it's almost £18 for a small plastic case with a blokes name on it... Maybe I'll just send a an extra couple rolls of film instead!

    I think the problem is that they’re all imported from Japan so they’re putting their costs onto it when they’re sold on.

    Yeah I totally get that and it's fair enough. You're paying for something to be made on the other side of the world and then posted to your door, so it's not that bad.

    I didn’t realise you already knew about Parallax as well bud. I hadn’t heard of them before but was directed towards them when I asked Bellamy for a UK source with stock. What you need is someone who lives nearby to go and collect it instead ;0) Then again, they’d still need to post it to you and Royal Mail won’t be much cheaper!

    I only found out about them yesterday when I Googled "JCH 120 film case UK" and they were like the third hit on the list. Their website says they were established last year, so that would explain why I'd never heard of them!

    If you look on eBay there are lots of listings for 120 film cases that are unbranded for only £4 ish. Could be worth a look? I'm sure your recipient won't be too hung up on the brand. Probably just wants a useful film holder.

    Cheers Mathew, I had a look at those but they come from China and are likely to arrive in mid January lol.

    My secret santa has put a few Instax cameras and accessories on their list so I'm going to send them a few packs of film, some KosmoFoto Film postcards (because who wouldn't want them!) and I've just drawn up a slot-in Instax Mini film holder with embedded magnets so they can put a picture on their fridge :) I'm going to go and cut it today although I'm not sure what colour it will be yet.

    Anyone apart from Nige sent their gifts yet then? Or received any? I'm planning on posting mine of tomorrow hopefully.

    I've not received mine yet, but I checked the Elfster site this morning and have a message from my (anonymous) Santa saying they will be posting my gift on Friday.

    I'm still piecing mine together. Mostly it's sorted but waiting on a book to be delivered and considering mounting a print.

    You're a pretty great Secret Santa @stevelmx5

    Makes my three rolls of film (albeit in a nice little sparkly box) look somewhat under-considered in comparison. I didn't even manage to include a bag of sweets in the end after the people at the post office suggested it might cause the package to be stopped by customs in the country of destination.

    Thanks but maybe I’m just cheap instead and wanted to use up some of the many acrylic offcuts left from my Chroma builds

    Haha nice! Handmade gifts are the best. My match was infuriatingly not on Twitter or Instagram (??!) so I had to stalk them on Facebook. They seem to like music, warm-toned film and Olympus, so I've donated them my little Olympus Trip 35 and picked up some OOD film and a hipster-y wrist strap. I'll wrap it all up this weekend!

    The gift I sent has been signed for by the recipient now, so they've got theirs in time for Christmas at least. :)

    Mine's currently working its way through the postal system and should hopefully be there tomorrow if Postman Pat doesn't get stuck in the snow up north in Coventry (yes, anything above Bristol is "north"!)
