I heard about a new shop that recently opened in Cleveland and have been craving to stop by and check it out. Saturday afternoon I decided that it was the perfect time to head over to Rocky River and sneak a peek.
It’s no surprise that California is my home away from home. One reason is because it is filled with all of these card stores and boutiques that are the opposite of Papyrus and Hallmark, however don’t get me wrong- I love those stores too! But it’s always nice to shop somewhere a little different that really seems to have that special connection with the customer. It is something I have been longing to find in Ohio for some time. And I think I found it!
Saturday was a beautiful day and I easily found Lovely Paperie & Gifts (I tend to get lost a lot, even in my hometown). To answer the next question most have, parking? Oh, so easy! Behind the shop.
I walked in and didn’t know where to begin. My jaw pretty much hit the floor.
They have this darling Cleveland section with all of the CLE shirts. It’s sort of perfect in case you don’t have an opportunity to head downtown, you can pick up one of their shirts at this location.
The bridal section? Too cute for words! I just snapped a photo of the tanks they carry:
However, they have the best gift ideas for groomsmen, father and mother of the bride/groom, and bridesmaids gifts. There were even items that the Bride-to-Be would love before her wedding, so Bridesmaids? Head to Lovely Paperie & Gifts and purchase the items that take a special moment and really make it memorable.
They have a darling baby section:
And oh, my weakness: Kate Spade New York for home. The little trays? I wanted them all!
Another favorite of mine? Candles in beer and wine bottles. The Angry Orchard one? It was so tempting and extremely difficult to put back down. With my hands full of cards, I couldn’t do the candle on this particular Saturday. But trust me, I will be back!
My absolute favorite section? The cards. I know, no surprise here. The selection is incredible with so many of my favorite lines like Rifle Paper Co. and Read Between the Lines! I bought a few of the cards to frame in my wall collage at home; that is how beautiful and unique they are.
What really sets Lovely Paperie & Gifts apart? They offer complimentary stamps for each card you purchase. That added touch really surprised me in a wonderful way. I read the sign, but when the sales associate mentioned it, I could not believe it.
And another favorite? The prints. I mentioned that Kate, the owner, carries Read Between the Lines cards, but she also carries their prints:
Needless to say, I found a new favorite shop in Cleveland and I am thrilled. I can’t wait to visit again! Kate has such a great selection of products that you can find something special for any event that the recipient will cherish forever. Head over to Lovely Paperie & Gifts, and be sure to share what you purchase!
