    Default Wall Tiles, It`s a Long Shot !!!

    Might be a long shot, but I know at least two of you works for topps ... So who knows,

    I am putting in a new kitchen and need some tiles to repair, add bits. My problem is that I bought them last year from Topps Tiles, who didn`t tell me at the time they were discontinued, and now I need some but dunno where to look, I cannot get them locally, I have tried all the suppliers, and topps tiles don`t have any as the dude said he had checked all the stores, he can get me red, blue and green, but it doesn`t help as I need yellow as well ,

    I need Johnson tiles, pennine range in yellow ...

    Any Ideas Guys ????

    How about giving Johnson Tiles themselves a ring? 01782 575575

    I used to work in a tile department of a DIY store many years ago (part time job whilst at sixth form! ) and I remember Johnson tiles were one of the best for maintaining colour consistency through different batches as well as tracking down tiles from a range that had been discontinued.

    Edit: You posted while I was typing Andy!! LOL

    HTH

    I knew someone would have a connection *lol*

    I have tried phoning them, thats how I discovered they were discontinued in 2003, topps told me they were just discontinued, not a year before I bought them ... They don`t have any and don`t know who would ? It`s annoying because I don`t need many and it looks like it might be a re tile job

    A lesson learned, buy plenty ....

    They have a warehouse sale in January, too.

    http://www.johnson-tiles.com/page.cfm?pageID=1246

    This place is near me and is a stockist. If they have some, I can pick them up and mail them to you.

    ok... heres an idea. depending how the tiles were laid, is there any way you can take a few off from hidden areas like under a worktop/bench and replace with a similar tile? then use the ones youve taken off for the repairs?
