What our customers say .....
"Was looking for a stationery shop while on a day out to Skipton. A quick google search found this place. I rang the shop and asked if they had what I was looking for in stock which they said they had. The very polite lady on the phone then asked if I required directions. When I said yes she gave me very clear and precise directions. When we arrived at the shop both ladies were polite and helpful even offering to keep hold of our purchases while we had a walk on the canal bank. Overall, a clean friendly shop. Would highly recommend it."
