Westie: Urbanic Paper Boutique

When we started with these Wesites, I warned you they will get pret-ty specific.  So, when I tell you that I am awarding a Westie to my favorite paper store, you shouldn't be too surprised.  There are always chain paper stores like PaperSource, which are great in their own right.  But this local one is the bees knees!

The Westie for Best Paper Store goes to...

I just love Urbanic!  First off, any of you love paper stores as much as I do?!  They always have the cutest cards, wrapping paper, and specialty gifts.  As far as store genres go, they are one of my Top 5.  Urbanic excels in this category because of owner, Audrey Woollen's keen sense of design.  Even though there is so much variety going on, not one piece in the store feels out of place.

I can spend hours browsing all the notecards, calendars, pens, and washi tape.  It's like the adult version of butterflies in my tummy when I would get to go shopping for school supplies--still makes me go eeeeee!!   I mean, these staplers!?!

And this entire nautical summer display...

And could this speak anymore to my heart?!

I love sending unique greeting cards, so I always get them here.  Urbanic curates products from brands that have so much personality and humor, making any card you send way more personal.  And, they always have Rifle Paper Co., which you know makes me swoon.

It's a must-see on the Westside!  Add that to the list of my happy places...
