What a belter of shop... It's got fantastic gifts, souveniers, photos, the works. And, I might add, it's ran by a bunch of really friendly lads and lasses.

I also pretty certain that there's some crazy tardis physics going on in there, when you see how much brill stuff they have out on display compared to the size of the shop :-). See More

Great shop, so much in there and a great choice. Popped in today for the first time to buy a few bits including lovely tree decorations. Friendly service and as promised I shared the link to let the other people in the Geordie Expats FB group know :)

If you need a quality, original, good value, original, funny, original, colourful or original (or all of the above, (and did I mention original)) gift, card, fr...idge magnet, drink mat, Geordie trinket, thing-you-just-can't-live-without, etc., or anything #AngelOfTheNorth, this is The Place to go. And they do worldwide delivery. Nice one, guys. Newcastle's finest.
PS - I'm the Angel Of The North runner in case you're wondering

Today is #justacard day, a campaign that encourages people to buy from independent designers, shops and galleries - even if that purchase is 'just a card'. Small transactions all add up for small businesses, and we are proud to have stocked 1600+ cards from over 100 local and independent creatives (and counting) in the 3.5 years we've been open! Starting with The Buddy Fernandez Card Company (a super cool independent) to Ohh Deer (now one of our main suppliers) who help independent designers by giving them a platform to showcase their work! From all the 61 Side team, thank you for supporting independent!
