Launched by Progressive greetings magazine in 2005, in recognition of Greeting card retailers throughout the land both large and small.

We are lucky enough to be a finalist in the Best Independent Greeting card Retailer - South West category and we're really excited.  Here's what happened on our day to London and the awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London #RETAS19

The Progressive Greetings team outdid themselves with a stunning Frida Kahlo themed room.  It simply looked so romantic and sparkly.  The nerves were building but we were up against some wonderful competition for the South West category.

Unfortunately it wasn't meant to be this year, but we are extremely proud to be nominated and maybe we'll try again next year. We had a fun day and meet some great people.

Congratulations to all of the winners on the day it must have been a truly amazing feeling.


Thanks Jacki, Warren and team at Progressive greetings, you did yourselves proud.
