always useful to have on hand as well as making a thoughtful gift.
The great thing is that writing is a two way process that can give as much pleasure to the writer as the reader; and what could be nicer than taking a crisp sheet of paper or choosing just the right card, which you know will be appreciated, to convey your news?

|Collage of our Borders notecards|
And so, on to our giveaway! The image above shows the six designs of our Borders notecards. They feature the abbeys of Melrose, Jedburgh and Dryburgh along with Abbotsford (Sir Walter Scott's house), Scott's View and Mary, Queen of Scots' house in Jedburgh. Every pack contains one card of each design.
Every day from 27 April until 3 May we will leave one pack of six notecards and a ballpoint at an undisclosed location somewhere in Melrose town centre. It might be tied to railings or on a bench but each day the location will be different. We hope the lucky finders will enjoy using the cards to keep in touch with their friends and family or perhaps make a gift of them to someone they know who loves writing. And if finding a pack helps make their day a little brighter, we hope they'll let us know too. In fact, if they come to the shop (Tues. - Sat.) and tell us which pack they found and where, anytime until Saturday 9 May, we'll include their name in a prize draw for a £10 Present Perfect gift voucher. With a maximum of seven finders, the odds are good!
So, Happy Hunting and remember - keep in touch!
