A neighbour who happened to have a career as an Archaeologist first inspired my interest in crystals. I was a very curious youngster, and i remember my neighbours garden contained a collection ofrocks and shiny stones! My mind was often preoccupied with these objects and as I grew older my curiosity grew. I began to learn all about these interesting rocks and crystals.! My uncle also happened to have a Prism; placing it in sunlight produced a spectrum of vivid colours that I found amazing!
Darwin's Cards and Gifts was set up in its current form in 2004 yet began life in 1978. At that time we opened a shop called "The Bibliopol" in Northampton run as a partnership by father and son team,Ron and Steve James. It started by selling second-hand and antiquarian books with a side line of a few cards, fine art prints and posters. The name was found in a dictionary that gave the meaning of "Bookseller at his best", yet was often misconstrued as a religious book shop.
