No.18 Gifts & Cards in Aberdeen, Scotland is a small contemporary shop in a port city which serves a predominantly female customer base made up of locals and office workers. Here, the store’s owner Angela Buchan reveals what is selling well.
Glitter Dots from English Graphics
“Simple designs with lots of hand-applied sparkly dots on grey board and a beautiful script font.”
Sunshine & Toast from Bluebell 33
“A bright coloured modern letterpress collection with gold foiled cheeky and clever wording.”
General from Proud Couture
“Stunning designs that feature very feminine and cool fashion illustrations.”
Across The Board from Belly Button
“Belly Button’s designs are beautifully embellished, unusual and a bit special. Customers often come in our store looking for something different from what is offered by the multiples.”
Precious Metals from Coulson Macleod
“Pale pink or white cards featuring succinct contemporary sentiments – such as ‘Always Sparkle’ – in gold foiling. Customers tend to buy four or five cards at a time. They’re so popular we have hardly any left!”
