I mentioned Paper Source in my last post about Mother’s Day; but I think it deserves its own post. Because I love this little shop. Its charming boutique-like setting offers stationary, gift cards, calendars, gifts, and more. Much more.
Paper Source first opened its doors in 1983 in Chicago, IL. Its desire? To showcase beautiful paper from all over the world. Today, it continues to do just that. Located on Colorado Boulevard in Old Pasadena, Paper Source strives to inspire its customers to “Do Something Creative Every Day.” And with its plethora of supplies, papers, and adorable items, even the non-crafty types (that’s me) can appreciate its mission.
Some of my favorites? First up definitely includes its aprons. They’re whimsical, brightly colored, and perfectly priced (under $30). I’m loving the Donut patterned apron and the Ride On apron, which is covered with colorful bicycles (each for under $20).
Next up is their collection of Kate Spade items (of course). Like their Kate Spade New York Glasses Pencil Pouch; a small pouch to hold pencils, lipstick, credit cards, even a phone. And for under $30, it’s the perfect clutch or pouch for you or a girlfriend. Paper Source also carries adorable accessories—from neon hair ties and fox lady socks to manicure sets and lip gloss (Who knew?)
But my most loved item? The paper goods. No surprise here, the store lives up to its name. From unique gift cards and stationery sets to beautiful wrapping paper and wedding invitations, Paper Source offers its shoppers both quantity and quality. Yes, their cards run expensive; but when compared to chain brands, this store has them beat. Unique messages; quirky designs; all with a handmade artistic flair. And their wedding invitations? Perfection. They have hundreds of examples in-store for you to pour through—I should know. I ordered mine there five years ago and couldn’t be happier!. Easy to order; beautiful selection; and helpful staff make this a win-win-win situation.
So, for all your gifting needs, head on over to Paper Source in Old Pasadena today. http://www.papersource.com
