“Art cards sell well for us. Popular at the moment is a mixture of Glebe Cottage’s Kate Andrew range, with lovely inspirational quotes, and Emma Ball’s Susie Lacome range. Both are excellent sellers.
Another popular new range has been Emma Ball’s Woolly Puffin cards – an instant bestseller for us!”
