The Card Collection, in operation for over twenty-five years, is owned and run by Gillian Ania. It stocks an extensive range of Greeting Cards, along with foil and latex balloons, party-ware, gifts, and gift wrap.


We are a specialist card shop, and Keswick’s sole stockist of the much-loved Carte Blanche's Me-to-You Bears, and card ranges.


Also available Gorjuss Gifts and cards, Italian and UK-made jewellery.

The shop also stocks Lake District greetings cards and postcards by local artists and photographers.


Also available: notebooks, jotters, notelets and address books, bookmarks and fridge magnets.


At Christmas time, a complete section of the shop is given over to cards, gift bags, tinsel, and other decorations.
