Q1...Have you ever bought cards/wrapping paper from Pheonix before?

Q2...Would you be liable to buy on a regular basis really unusual cards and wrapping paper (and a few other things like lovely big posters with intricate pictures to colour in-aimed at age 4 and above)

The company is nothing like other card companies that sell,in my opinion,cheap and tacky cards etc-they are really good quality,unusual designs that you would normaly find in Paperchase.
Just want a rough idea as the initial outlay can be quite high so would like your advice if possible.

I like Phoenix cards - I ususally buy them at school PTA events e.g shopping evenings

dropinthe - got your CAT- m email is playing up- will try to reply later but let me know if you don't hear anything. I could send you a pack that you could show locals to see if they would buy from you (that's what I did before deciding whether to go for it).

I would be interested in this myself, do you have a link?

Jimjams-I have all the info-might be starting up with another mnetter going halveses on one of the packs! Ithink they are really nice products-I was just wondering how you found doing it?

Q1: yes
Q2: yes if it was convenient (the phoenix trader I bought from I don't see very often). Some lovely cards at good prices. The paper seems less cheap (can get cheaper in tesco). Great for kids cards and flowery things.

I have no idea what you'd make on the cards, and personally I'd hate selling to people, but if convenient I'd get loads. I think you'd need to have a regular / easy place to sell - the woman I've got them from runs a kids club and sells them there. But of all the things that you'd chose to sell, it's the one I'd regularly buy.

Good luck.
