Handmade greetings cards are now an important part of our business; some of our customers only buy cards and ignore the books completely, which is fine with us!
Karen is an experienced card-maker, having been making cards for many years and with the shortage of cards available in France, has found a growing market for her designs.
All cards are 3,00€ and the full range of cards currently available is always on the van. They can also be ordered and sent by post (postal charges will apply, Paypal accepted).
New for 2014: Kerbian Farm Shop
You can find a selection of cards at Kerbian Farm Shop, (Plussulien 22320 - www.kerbianfarm.fr). Dawn and Paul have also kindly agreed to act as a pick up point for special orders, so you can order from our website and as long as you give us enough notice, you can pick up your cards from the shop at the same time as your bacon and sausages!
However, please note that they cannot take orders. Contact us directly to discuss what you want and then collect from the shop.
Cards are all individually made and the majority of them can be personalised (with a bit of notice and at no extra cost) with names and/or ages. The photo gallery contains only the range of repeatable cards, although please bear in mind that, as they are handmade, there will be slight differences in the finished product. In addition there is a large selection of absolute "one-offs" which can be seen on the van or at craft fairs etc, and we have a range of cards to cover other situations such as, thank you, congratulations, sympathy, retirement, blank. Although the photo gallery is divided into categories, most of the cards can be changed to suit requirements (eg, a card in the "birthday" gallery can be altered to make a "get well" card). If you want to order from the gallery, each card has an individual reference number which appears above it . (To see the reference numbers, please ensure you are not viewing on "full screen" setting).
All cards come with a suitable greeting inside and are individually wrapped. Again the greeting inside can be personalised to suit your needs.
However, if you want something even more personal, perhaps to reflect the recipient's special interests, or even just a favourite colour, please ask, and Karen will be happy to design something for you, again at no extra cost. She can e-mail you a picture of the finished card for approval but there's no obligation to buy if you are not happy with the finished card. There is a gallery of some of the special commissions to give an idea of what can be accomplished. For example, it is very easy to incorporate a photo into a special design. Seasonal cards are available at relevant times of the year (Mothers' Day, Fathers' Day, Easter,) plus a large range of Christmas cards are on the van from the beginning of October.
We attend various craft shows and sales throughout the year, notably AIKB events. (Please check with us before making a special journey )
Check back regularly as new cards are always being added to the gallery. For regular visitors to the site, there is now a "recent upload" section, to make it easier to find the new cards.
