Customer Love

I love, love, love this independent card store that is also filled with the perfect little gifts. The staff is amazing and I cannot ever enter without leaving with something. Please support local. Trust me shopping here is always a wonderful experience.

Great little family-owned card store. If you can't find an appropriate card you didn't look hard enough! Great selections.

Bobby J.

BEST stationery store I have ever visited! And the people working there were SO NICE. :)

Most charming store with a fantastic collection of cards, wrapping paper, pens (my daughter spends all her money on the pens), stationery, gifts and all kinds of whimsical things.
