oohh I thought you were going to recommend some...

ByThePowerOfGreyskull Sat 24-Oct-09 20:13:13

we sent out these a couple of years ago.. they were gorgeous

PDR Sat 24-Oct-09 20:30:18

Oh sorry! blush

They look lovely - and I like the tin thing they come in - could be reused for biscuit hiding storing!

ByThePowerOfGreyskull Sat 24-Oct-09 20:31:49

we had to buy 3 boxes to send enough out so I have one for biscuits, one for nice greetings cards and one for secret chocolate (MINE!!)

PDR Sat 24-Oct-09 20:34:42

there are gorgeous hand made ones on Etsy

ByThePowerOfGreyskull Sat 24-Oct-09 21:04:20

I have just had a look on the etsy site and most of them seem to be in the states... is there a uk site?

Have you had a look through Phoenix? I usually buy from there and they're lovely quality.

you can type in for the UK but most things do come from the USA but the postage is usually quite reasonable and the items arrive pretty quickly i buy loads of stuff from it and havnt had any problems(yet)

Just watch out with Phoenix that you don't buy oddly sized cards that fall foul of standard postage sizes - as I have done a few times!

another mumsnetter on here put me on to the amnesty christmas shop and i thought some of these are beautiful, esp the photographic ones

PDR Sun 25-Oct-09 09:10:15

Ooooo my Amnesty ones have been "despatched".... very exciting!

Maybe I should start my list?! [saddo]

check out tkmaxx - they have really nice ones closer to xmas

PDR Tue 27-Oct-09 16:51:45

Cards have arrived - every bit as lovely as I thought! Very fast delivery as well even with the strikes (RM normal 1st class)

Highly recommend

OOh good to hear PDR. Am delighted people looked and liked them too. Tried to actually buy them myself but they dont send to ireland, huh! But nothing looked as nice as them so have hatched crafty scheme where i am sending them to sis in UK and buying her some to cover cost of posting on to me! amnesty gains twice and i get my cards(smug emoticon with santa hat)

Too late for you, PDR, but lovely ones here:

OMG PCPlum I LOVE that shop!

Me thinks I could get another couple of packets and send every single colleague at work a card ;)

Like the kids cards too so may stock up on birthday cards for the year
