Louise Baldwin owns and together with her mum Caroline and auntie Hilary runs Savannah, a small independent card and gift shop located in the Surrey village of Windlesham. Here, Louise reveals some of the store’s current hot sellers.
Jaz & Baz from Portfolio
“A bright sparkly range of cards that suits all ages and tastes and all at a reasonable price.”
Across The Board from Rosie Made A Thing
“Our customers just love the characters and the humour is funny without being offensive. It’s great to hear customers giggle as they read the cards. We regularly take orders from customers who buy in bulk!”
Cloud Nine from Redback
“Humorous, very modern designs, in bright colours. And everyone loves the publisher’s Sequined range!”
General from Crumble & Core
“A new company for us. It covers the hand-painted look. The range is huge and is in pretty pastel colours ranging from beautifully painted flowers to bears. It also does small cards, which come boxed with either small silver stud earrings or a necklace.”
Bala Boo (named after her rescue dog!) from Sarah Burman Design
“A new company that’s local to us. Sarah is lovely and has a bright and unusual range of children’s cards. Fun characters, eg dinosaurs and unicorns, can be ages or blank birthday, basically she’s happy to put what you would like!”
Across The Board from Glick
“Beautifully finished bags and paper at a great price.”
Handmade silver plated jewellery from Clementine
“From a small English supplier. Designed and handmade in Staffordshire by the lovely Ami. A lovely company to deal with and great value as all pieces come with gift packaging.”
