The Card Collection, in operation for over thirty years, has been owned and run by Gillian Ania since 2014. It stocks an extensive range of Greeting Cards, along with foil and latex balloons, partyware, 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 Teddies, soft toys, and card ranges.


We also now stock items from the Tyrrell Katz gift range for children, including melamine tableware, lunchboxes and bright, colour-changing umbrellas.


The shop stocks Lake District view cards, postcards, fridge magnets, keyrings, snow globes and other souvenirs, including designs by local artists and photographers.


We also sell stationery, including notebooks, notelets, address books, jotters, bookmarks, pens, pencils, crayons, etc.


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


Yet also on display. are our usual ranges of Birthday cards and gifts.
