Honestly, this little card shop does have cute gifty-things and a large selection of cards, but I'm a little annoyed by their "no refunds" policy. I had literally bought some Easter stuff 2 days earlier (and 2 weeks before Easter), and found out that the kids I was giving the stuff to would be away for Easter; so I tried to return the merchandise. Not only do they have a "no refunds" policy, but there are no returns on seasonal items! And there's a teeny little sign behind the counter that apparently says so. Now I'm stuck with $30 worth of kiddy Easter stuff that I can't use - so I won't be going back there again.

When i was going to school by Columbia this was my absolutely favorite little gift shop to visit- it has a great selection of unique, one-of-a-kind and funny cards- not your standard drugstore cards. They always have great special occasion selections- for valentines day, christmas, etc. They also have good little knick knacks that make great gifs for friends- pretty little boxes, clocks, calendars, magnets. A few funky, retro stuff too and a decent selction of photo albums. Also, they have a good deal and photo processing there too.

PROS: unique, original cards and gifts
CONS:

Have you ever parused the aisles of your local Hallmark and say I wish I could find a really good card that expresses exactly what I want to say? Chances are Card O Mat has exactly what you want. They literally have hundreds of different greeting cards in all shapes and sizes from the witty to the sentimental. They also sell candles, frames and journals.

I love card-o-mat for all the fun stuff they have. You can get lost in there, even though it's not a large store. Their card selection is extensive and unique - you can find the craziest and most off-color cards you could imagine right next to appropriate and tactful ones. The clocks and watches they have are really fun and they have a whole section of stationary items that are very funky. The prices are moderate to expensive, but it's sometimes hard to resist some of their enticing items.

I don't recommend this store.

While it is centrally located for the Columbia community, there is a better choice just across the street.

There is a nice selection of cards and gifts at this shop, however, the staff hawks over you and if you touch things on their "fragile" shelves they will jump down your throat.

I'd prefer not to be treated like a child when I shop somewhere, and will not be going back.

PROS: Location, okay selection
CONS: Staff and do not touch policies are ridiculous
