Cards, Gifts & Toys

Stationery and Other Gifts

We have a wonderful selection of gifts and cards in stock.

Most gifts are suitable for all year round, but we always have some appropriate for each season.  Here, for example, you can see just a few of our Christmas items  displayed  in the window last December.

Our beautiful range of gifts and cards is carefully selected by Fiona, who tries to source as much as possible from local suppliers. Here are some of the people we work with:

Rachel Ellen Designs – Innovative greeting cards and stationery products for children and the young at heart.

“Rachel Ellen Designs believe in shopping locally.  All our cards are designed, printed, flitter and finished on or within a 5 mile radius of our premises in Nottingham.  We think that independent retailers like The Bookcase in Lowdham are the heart of the local community and should be supported enthusiastically.”  Rachel from Rachel Ellen Designs

BugArt – Cards and stationery that incorporate plenty of sparkle into their lovely designs.

“We are a local greeting card publisher based in Nottingham. Established for 20 years and supplying to countries all over the world, we support and value our local UK customers, especially small independent shops such as The Bookcase. A bookshop is not just a shop, it’s a cultural centre, it’s somewhere where people can browse and meet and chat. We fully support The Bookcase and their service to their local community. Please support them, buy a book, attend a festival and don’t forget to look at the beautiful cards!” Jane from BugArt

Emma Ball – Original watercolours, greetings cards and limited edition prints, typically featuring the seaside or countryside.
