Special occasions are hard – it seems like we’re all constantly caught in a deluge of birthdays, anniversaries, Mother’s Days, Valentine’s Days – not to mention Christmas! They come so thick and fast it can be easy to get overwhelmed, and to struggle to find the right card, the right gift, the perfect paper.


Well, fear not – a beacon of hope shines on yonder hill: Card Shack at the Arcade Bristol!



Card Shack is an independent Card, Gift and Accessories shop in The Arcade, Broadmead who offer a variety of greetings cards, stationery, gifts and packaging from independent talent and design companies both local and national.


Card Shack have a particular focus on platforming small and struggling independent artists and creators, and the team are always on the lookout for brilliant new creatives to bring into the fold of their range.



“My shop is all about bringing locally made stuff into the town centre, because a lot of smaller, independent makers aren’t VAT-registered, so they find it hard to get into bigger shops.” said Michelle, Card Shack’s owner and proprietor. “I’m trying to put my money and time into those people to give them a chance.”


The range of cards is fantastic and all special days are covered with a huge selection to choose from. Pop in and find something extra special for your friends, family and loved ones, secret crush, work colleagues or just something different to send out as a thank you!



But there’s more than just cards at the shack – CS offer everything from seasonal gifts, to beloved all-year round offerings, and even a selection of special wrapping paper for that extra attention to detail that your loved ones are sure to appreciate.


So head on down to Card Shack today – or browse their range online!
