This past Sunday I went to what has become my favorite paper store in NYC. Kate's Paperie in Soho is somewhat of an indulgence. Reasonably priced and chock-full of amazing and unique pieces, I popped in to get a card for my very sweet friend who'd written me a letter this past week and, per usual, loved absolutely everything in the store.
The entrance to Kate's. Eye-catching details everywhere you turn.
Whole new meaning to the term 'Wallflower.' These lined one entire wall of the store. Great thing about paper flowers? Lasts forever.
I currently own a light blue recycled leather notebook from Kate's, but once it's filled up this may be my next purchase. I love the idea of pulling this out, detective style and filling it up with thoughts and... what else, notes.
There were hundreds of cards to choose from. Recommendation: Do not bring significant other to Kate's unless you bribe them with Mr. Softee or a Dean and Deluca cookie first to keep them occupied.
My final choice. The friend this is for had a goldfish that stayed with her for 14 years. After much deliberating, that helped cinch my decision.
I spotted this glittery gold and black wrapping paper on my way out. I would love, love to wrap all my holiday presents in it this year. But, I feel inclined to tell you only an experienced wrapper should buy paper like this. The glitter makes it incredibly difficult to get a good crease. However, I'm nothing but impractical when it comes to anything remotely related to the holidays.
