Stopped off after seeing a mint card in the window and was SOO happy to hear they sold hot drinks too! Grabbed a coffee and a card and was treated to a nice conversation with the staff member. Very cosy place too.

This is a very small shop but it has unusual and quirky things. It also has a brilliant selection of "different" cards. It is on a steep hill.

If you want to buy mass produced but quirky gifts this is probably a good place to go. Personally it's not for me but those who like this sort of stuff will find it good
