The Paper Place

The Paper Place
Amazing Assortment
Lovely Paper
Thank You cards
In the Wild
Here are the photos of our visit to The Paper Place.
I was like a cat in a fishery :)
The cherry on the cake was to spot my Galison 'Thank You' cards in the shop!
Oh! I almost forgot that I ate my first ever macaron from Nadège,
across the street from The Paper Place.
We had the salted caramel and it was delicious!
Thank you Margie for being such a wonderful tour guide.

Gorgeous! I love the window display, with its origamied dresses. If you're ever in Ann Arbor MI, you should check out Hollander's paper & bookmaking.

I buy paper from this shop - they ship here to the UK. Thanks for showing us what it looks like inside. I think I would have been overcome with paper-induced joy!

SO delighted that I bought this last box !! Too bad that Amazon doesn't carry them, or I would have had them for a long time already !
That place was heavenly indeed, I'm so happy I could buy a handful of things from there !
