Have you lost the art of letter writing? National Stationery Week is being celebrated right now and we have a variety of notecards, writing paper and quality pens to help you stay in touch and show someone you are thinking of them.
Words and writing also star in our 7th birthday competition! There is still time to enter before 12 April and give yourself a chance to win the first prize, worth more than £80, or one of the five runners-up prizes, each worth over £10. Celebrate the words of Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare by visiting our online competition page or call in the shop for an entry form.
The second weekend in April sees Melrose rugby club hosting the world famous Sevens competition. Always a major event, Melrose will welcome teams from across the UK and beyond for all day action!
Of course, the following weekend heralds Easter, which could find the more energetic amongst us rolling eggs downhill or perhaps enjoying the slightly more sedate pastime of an Easter egg hunt! Our eggs are all safely arrayed on the shop tree along with some bunny bunting! But if you pop in, you may also find a little chocolate treat waiting!
We had thought that Spring had got off to quite a fine start but the last few days have been distinctly damp and grey here in the Borders! Let's hope that there's a dramatic improvement, but remember, you can always bring a ray of sunshine into someone's day with a handwritten note.
We hope to see you soon. In the meantime, thank you for reading this and remember to have a go at our competition. You just might win!
Have a Happy Easter.
