  • Great and interesting independent store.
  • A brilliant and quirky little shop, right in the heart of historic Durham city. I found an incomparable selection of cards for every occasion. There are gifts for all wallets, ranging from little knick-knacks and stocking fillers to upmarket clothing and toiletries. Something for everyone. The staff were extremely polite and helpful and made sure that I found everything I needed. 5 stars all round!!
