We have a great mix of tempting gifts that you won't find on the high street - something a little bit different and all specially chosen by Tess.


In our clothing area you can find knitwear, skirts, dresses, trousers, useful t-shirts and tops in lovely colours by well known labels. Good quality and a little bit special.


Our wide range of cards cover many different ages and occasions including birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, new babies, sympathy, ages and much, much more.
