Don't make me jealous!!!
I went to Clintons Cards last week with DH, all excited about the box of paper, only to find its a folder and the selection wasn't that brilliant. Am going to try to go to a garden centre tomorrow where they sell it by the box and see what their range is like.

Great aren't they!
Have one only a few miles away. There don't always have that much in the way of pearlised card, but ususally OK for stocking up on basic, cream, white, ivory.....
Come on, tell us! HOW MANY??
I have only ever got 2 A4 boxes and 1 A5, but then I am SO close to visiting again!

I love paper mill shop we make all of our cards now after discovering it. I made someone up a craftie box from there for their birthday and included an A5 box with card and inserts and some peel offs and embellishments and it came to under a tenner.

I discovered ours at Cheshire Oaks.

Thinking of taking a trip to my neares which is here specifically to drool over paper. I ^love* paper...

Dingle Wed 30-Mar-05 20:26:22

Have you ever been there Soupy? As an outlet, I really don't think that much of it. It is still really empty, loads and loads of unoccupied shops. I heard rumours that there is going to be a M & S outlet, I don't know where it will go though. It it is actually in with the others, it won't be very big!
I only really go for The Paper Mill Shop. Where abouts are you Soupy, if you ever want me to pick you some up, I could leave it with my in-laws in Dartford, but then again if you are coming down to Dartford, the new link roads get you to Dockside very quickly.

I'm in South London The paper was my only reason for going really...

Dingle Wed 30-Mar-05 20:37:50

Even o the busiest weekends, the parking is no hassle and the food court has always got lots of tables! But the Paper Mill Shop is still usually too crowded to get a buggy round!

Although it's further away, we now and then visit the one at McArthur glen. It's the same stock and lots more other shops to keep DH and the kiddies occupied while I ponder over paper!

I love going to the mill where they make it (just north of Kendal) - it's called Burnside. I think it's cheaper there than in the shops too

Can anyone give me the website address, I can't find it?

Dingle Fri 01-Apr-05 09:43:42

here you go

kkgirl Fri 01-Apr-05 10:30:52

Thanks Dingle.

Not one that near me, will have to engineer trip somehow!!

Dingle Fri 01-Apr-05 10:33:35

They seem to be expanding quite quickly. Dockside, Chatham is still fairly new and last year we had one open in Ashford. Looking at their website, they have/are opening another 2.
Live in hope that you get one too!
