Our Story

Angela and Sarah have been best friends forever and business partners almost as long. We set the business up in 2005 designing and manufacturing personalised canvas pictures for children. We started in a design studio by the river Tyne, moving to bigger and bigger units as the business grew.

The business took us to trade shows all over the country and we discovered a world of like minded folk like us that made equally lovely products. We decided to collate a range of gifts that were just that little bit different and we launched a new website selling our range in 2007. We aimed to make shopping for the perfect gift an easy and pleasurable experience. We have always worked hard to find things that are both quirky and distinctive and we support local businesses, we are well known for stocking local North East gifts.

In 2016 we took the plunge and opened our first high street store which was a instant success. We expanded 2 years later into a bigger store on a busier street. And here we are today, thriving, independent and a part of our local community. We were very proud to be voted The Best Small Business in Gateshead earlier this year.

We might seem familiar, we have featured in the Christmas Visa advertising campaign in the last 2 years, if you can’t visit our actual shop you can have the virtual experience with our website. Our online shop moves with the times, just like our range. Have a browse around and don’t forget to sign up to our newsletter to keep up to date with new products and special offers.
