Memories The Card & Gift Shop is a medium-sized shop located in the Suffolk village of Martlesham Heath, near Ipswich. Here, owner Pamela Gale shares what products are going down especially well withher shop’s customers.
Across The Board from Jonny Javelin
“Without doubt Jonny Javelin cards are my top sellers. They are beautiful designs at an amazing price. I have a number of customers who only ever buy them and are not interested in the many other publishers I stock.”
Across The Board from IC&G
“IC&G come in at a close second on the best selling front. The cards are incredible value for money and its, often simple, contemporary designs are such winners. Plus, I can place an order with my rep and the cards are delivered the next day – fabulous service!”
General from Paperlink
“By far my best selling humour ranges are from this publisher, featuring mainly cartoons, with non-offensive jokes. Customers can be heard chuckling in the ‘humour corner’ and they regularly like to ‘re-arrange’ the cards away from their envelopes.”
Pizazz from Nigel Quiney
“Quiney produces some stunningly pretty cards, a little higher in price, and very glittery.”
General from Noel Tatt
“The designs continue to be popular and is another publisher who manages to deliver within 24/48 hours from placing the order. Its Decoupage range ‘stands out’ (forgive the pun) – a handmade card, which is priced at £1.99 retail, has to be a winner.”
Champagne from Second Nature
“There’s a beautiful collection of handmade designs in this range. A little higher price point, but beautiful designs.”
Equilibrium from Joe Davies
“My main gift supplier has to be Joe Davies. I can place a ‘little and often order’ as its minimum order is only £100. Its selection of Equilibrium jewellery is fairly priced and beautifully boxed.”
