Carl Dunne, owner of Cards and Gifts, Sheffield did not adapt well to the start of lockdown. He just so missed the vibe of working. While his partner Oliver Guise-Smith building a website from scratch did cheer Carl up substantially, especially as orders for cards and balloons took off straight away, it was clinching a lease on a second store in Dronfield, another part of the city which really got him smiling again!

Now with two stores and a vibrant website, Carl was only too pleased to share some of their best sellers…
