New look.

Hello friends of the Pixies.
We were fortunate enough to be able to purchase some fabulous new shelving for our little shop. This is the little front room you walk into first. These two stands are just perfect for displaying all sorts of cards and of

the page projects.
We have been able to do away with the 'a' frame in the middle of the shop and use our newly purchased racks. It really does open the shop up and makes it bright and airy.
Call in to check out what it looks like in real life. We do have hand made cards by several talented ladies for sale and they are displayed in a fabulous revolving cardrack now.
Our PUNCH SALE is still on with some larger punches on special for HALF PRICE. Specials will be while stocks last.
We have a small selection of new papers in and are awaiting the arrival of some fantastic 'beaded ribbons. Look out for that in store soon.
Thanks for checking in.

Unfold your wings & fly !!
