Welcome to Special Occasions


After two years of setting up and working the handcrafted stationery business from home, in 2011 we decided to open our very own gift shop (incorporating the stationery aspect) in our first premises. This month, we are celebrating our 4th birthday of being “shop owners” and what an amazing 4 years it has been! In 2013, we outgrew our first premises and had the opportunity to purchase a larger shop across the road, which had more room, floor space and scope to expand on our ever-growing ideas.

Since we have been in the new shop, we now carry far more stock than before, so you will never be short of ideas for those special occasions – be it engagements/weddings, christenings, new babies, milestone and general birthdays or just because! We also stock branded goods which include Equilibrium Jewellery, Silver Tag Bears (collectibles), Terramundi pots, Gisela Graham (home decoration/giftware), to name but a few.

These new premises have also given us more room to expand the handcrafted and printed invitations and stationery and with over six years’ experience, we are confident that we will be able to match any of your requirements – just come in and have a no-obligation chat to our in-house stationer.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their custom and support over the last four years, it wouldn’t be a shop without you all.

We are always happy to see browsers and to answer any questions you may have, so please don’t hesitate to pop in, even if it’s just to say hello!
