Our Story

We are a family run business, with 2 shops on our beautiful Yorkshire coast.
In both Scarborough and Bridlington.
We look for unique, quality gifts at reasonable prices and stock a wide range of collectibles, greetings cards, jewellery and personalised gifts.

Originally established in Scarborough, in 1964 as 'Scarborough Glass & Crafts' we sold a large range of decorative glass items. We used to fly to Germany before the wall came down to purchase and import huge case of hand made glass from East Germany. Along with our range of imported glass, we made our own little glass Lucky Ducks by hand, which people were able to watch. (we still do this today!)
In 1985 we moved premises just up the road from Eastborough up to 23 Newborough, where we expanded the range of gifts to include special occasion gift ware, greetings cards, and purchased an engraving machine. Since then we have added a sandblaster to our workshop and have over 30 years experience in engraving glass & crystal items of all shapes and sizes, including mirrors, paperweights, bowls, vases and created many bespoke and prestigious awards for local businesses and our Council.

In the last 2 years we have worked very hard and undergone some major refurbishment.
We still specialise in making our glass Lucky Ducks by hand and creating bespoke engraved pieces for our customers.

In 2013 we opened our second shop in Bridlington, Which also sells a range of collectibles, gifts and greetings cards. Last year we purchased equipment to allow us to personalise a larger range of gifts than just glass & crystal. We can now personalise mugs, china cups, magic colour changing mugs, keyrings, compact mirrors, decorative hanging hearts, money boxes, tote bags, greetings cards & A4 sized boxed greetings cards, all while you wait, with hundreds of pre made designs to choose from!

Most importantly, whether you contact us online, by phone or in one of our shops, we really care about our customers & strongly believe in providing you with the very best service we can.

So if you would like any help or just advice, please do not hesitate to contact us.
