About Us

74 years, and counting

The shop, which has been in the same family for three generations, opened back in 1947 as a cafe and gift shop, and became focused predominantly on cards during the 1960s.  The tradition of good old-fashioned service has continued to this day, combined with an extensive selection of the best new cards, which ranges from traditional and sentiment through art and photographic  to contemporary and humorous cards. We pride ourselves in having a selection of cards appropriate for almost every occasion, although we know we cannot rest on our laurels as our customers’ requests continue to surprise us!

The shop is located at the sea end of Hamilton Road – Felixstowe’s main shopping street – at the top of Bent Hill. Contact details for the shop can be found on the ‘Contact Details‘ page.

Felixstowe is a delightful Edwardian seaside town, with 5 miles of beautiful, varied coastline, a selection of fine shops and restaurants (many of which are independently owned) and a wealth of history. Parking is available around the town centre and seafront.
