Christmas Cards & Christmas Crackers.

I was first asked for Christmas Cards this year, back in August. I said, "Woah! Please let me get well into September before I start having to think about Christmas".

Well, over the last 5 weeks or so, our holiday visitors and people living around Side have been choosing their Christmas Cards in English or German and taking them home to get ready for posting, or to give family and friends for Christmastime.

I've put a few pictures here to show what's available but there's much more.

All Hand-Made by my daughter Sally, not only Christmas Cards but Christmas Crackers to go alongside the table settings at Christmas lunchtime.

All Crackers go off with a good 'bang', all containing a Paper Crown, a Joke, and a novelty gift or toy.

Many Christmas Card designs including, 'My Home to Yours', 'Our Home to Yours', 'Across The Miles', Trolls for all members of your family, along with Traditional Christmas themes and even..........Bah Humbug style.

If you'd like to come along, I'm here Mon-Sat from 9am-7pm

For those of you that haven't been by my office before, I'm on Side Boulevard, about half way between Anadolu Hospital & Side Prenses Hotel.
Hanay Suite Hotel one side of me and the large Narin Butcher on the other.
Book shelves outside on our terrace apart from the very occasional rainy day.

Please feel free to come along and have a look and if you're not up for thinking about Christmas yet, there's always the likes of Birthdays, Weddings and New Baby cards to go through.

Re: Christmas Cards & Christmas Crackers.

Lovely cards & Christmas isn't Christmas without crackers on the table ! Good luck with the sales. We don't know where we will be spending the festive season this year. When the children grow up and have families of their own we now become the "old people" lol !

Re: Christmas Cards & Christmas Crackers.

Sally-Ann's cards are truly unique and a very one off item! I had a 70th birthday card made for my friend, along with a cracker and they were beautiful. The fact that you can make these so personal is an added bonus and the sort of things they are only going to get one of! I shall be ordering all my cards for birthdays, anniversaries etc so send back to the UK in good time for all the relevant celebrations. Well done Sally-Ann, perhaps you ought to open up a little shop as it would do so well and is a niche market here! I've often said about an English card shop, it would take off. Keep up the wonderful work.

Thanks so much for your comments here. We're very lucky with me being Turk Citizen working from the office in Side each day. The idea of opening a shop has been much thought about but until I retire I'll keep having the cards on display here for tourists, and our regular customers that live here like yourself, to come and choose from the display racks.

As you know garcia, Personalised cards for any occasion can also be ordered and the demand has grown over the years since Sally started doing this.

When all costs of opening another shop are taken into account, plus someone to be there all the time to man it, it's just not viable. Maybe when I've retired and Sally's youngest son is in school, we'll think about it again.

Then, I could man the shop!! Give me something to do, hahaha.
