Flamingo Paperie was born from the ashes of Phoenix Trading, the first British direct selling greeting card company. Flamingo Paperie is owned and managed by three directors, Robin Bradley, the original founder of Phoenix Trading, Sheila Shaw, one of the earliest directors of Phoenix, and Stuart Millar, the number one Trader in the Phoenix business.

Having been a stationery addict for as long as I can remember, I have found a way to help! When my 2 boys were younger, I was in need of an endless supply of birthday cards and wrapping paper and what better than having my own supply I can ‘shop’ from in my own home. Combined with a liking for crafting, I love gift-wrapping presents and using different techniques. So in 2011 I joined Phoenix Trading, now Flamingo Paperie, who have helped me with my paper stationery fix. I love being an Independent Flamingo Paperie Partner. Today although my children are older and don’t go to as many parties, I still love the quality and designs of the products and send even more cards now than I used to! Although I am based in Dorset, I take my ‘Pop-up’ shop throughout Dorset and beyond. If you prefer to shop from home, I can bring my ‘Pop-up’ shop to you or I have an online shop you can browse the full range and order directly.
