Newcastle's Gift, Card & Souvenir Shop

What is this?

Gifts, Cards, Souvenirs & more...

The orange door next to Dog Leap Stairs in Newcastle opened in July 2014. Located just under the rail arch, down Grey St/Dean St.
We stock some ace gifts, or presents as we prefer to call them, including local art, prints and even hand-made candles and chocolates. We're getting more known for the growing collection of truly original greeting cards that 'say it like it is' and a variety of Geordie and Northern themed cards (Good Crack).
If you're after super Souvenirs we've got all sorts from magnets to tea towels and the essential postcards. Have a good browse online and we hope to see you soon.

Who do we think we are?

One man & his dog...

Sean & his dog Oscar are the main living creatures on site, although Oscar is more part-time. Of course many others are involved on 'The Side', from family & friends to other local businesses, folk and the like.
What we sell...

We don't just sell gifts, souvenirs and cards, we give you more...

Greeting Cards like no others!
We stock a range of greeting cards for all occasions, that are truly unique. We don't believe in cards for cards sake, we think they should really state something, and boy do ours stand out. We have locally themed cards that many buy to even frame, those rare cards with MAM on (not Mum or Mom), and lots of funny one-liners that "say it how it is".
For a relatively small space, we've got a huge range of gifts, cards & ideas.
We're all about thoughtfulness, creativity, originality and affordability!
Fine Retail Detail...
We don't just dot our i's, we turn them upside down - a symbol for our obsessive detail on product quality and the like. Below are just some previews of the items we stock, to get a full picture come into our shop!

Why Visit?

We're not just a shop...

We aren't exactly just about generating transactions. We're all about the experience, the personal touch; from when we sell you quality stuff to give onto someone else, or even yourself! We play top tunes in our shop, local musician or band? Pop your stuff in we'll play it (no naughty words). We're always open to have convos about the area, what to see and do, the weather and all in-between. Well behaved dogs are welcome too, with free water and massages on-hand. So when we're open, the door isn't just open, lets open our minds ...
then wallets/purses if you want to :)
