Bright and always with an element that’s slightly different. I’m permanently reordering. I always know when customers are looking at the cards’ spinner as I hear them giggling. Len is located in our part of the world so there are quite a few local scenes. The images are also natural and not digitally enhanced.

Without a doubt these just fly out. There’s such a wide variety of artwork images that it’s simple to change the selection. Delicate designs that are that bit different - we tend to stock designs that are not in the supermarkets.


A unique finish and they retail at a good price. Lovely embroidered images on cards that can be personalised. Using pretty patterned papers, the designs really stand out on the racks. Make a teddy kit, train set in a tin, bird twitching kit, all the tins retail at £10 and are ideal for 4 to 90 year-olds or the whole family. All natural ingredients, the scents are lovely and they sell at a really good price point.

We’ve stocked this publisher’s cards for 15 years, since we opened, and they still sell consistently. With lovely designs and an insert inside, there has been a lot of thought put into the cards. The verses are good and the look is a wee bit different. We just have to keep stocking up on these cards. We stock the boxed, large and original size designs and they are all popular. Authentic hand-embroidered designs with printed words in a Scottish dialect. They are fab! The Winnie The Pooh collection has some lovely verse cards for grown-ups, and although the Frozen designs are nice and doing well, I feel they could benefit from a verse too. A new range with lots of relations titles and ages, featuring little boys and girls.
