At Calladoodles, we pride ourselves on providing the very best one-to-one customer service. We love our community and do our utmost to create a special experience for our customers. We try to combine a traditional high street shopping experience with a truly independent feel.
We hope that when you visit us you will feel our enthusiasm and energy for what we do!
LEADING CARD SELECTION....
WE HAVE BUILT OUR CARD SELECTION GRADUALLY OVER THE YEARS...
...starting with a few locally handmade ranges, then expanding into small publishers, trying to find cards with unusual or quirky images which are an alternative to the mainstream usually available on our high streets.
Liz is the owner of Calladoodles and is chief of our card section.
"I love searching other shops, the Internet and trade fairs to discover something new and special that has a story behind its development. It is also very important that I meet the people behind the products and, as a result, I have met some great characters, often modestly creative people and one or two rather less so! I also have a few very good reps who bring me new products, whose judgement I trust and from whom I have learnt a great deal about the industry."
WE WERE THRILLED TO RECEIVE A RETAS AWARD IN 2015...
"It was a great surprise to win an industry award as a relative newcomer. The (incredibly heavy!) trophy was handed over at an Oscars-style event at the Dorchester, where we were treated to a lavish meal and cabaret-style entertainment."
