Farewell Paperie in the NY Times – 11.22.15

article header

Farewell Paperie has been a long time favorite card line of wish gifts.  Friends of ours, Jen Pham-Corbett and Lisa Towns, started this funny, unique and beautiful card line together (currently out of Seattle).  We could not be more proud of them for making the NY Times article titled Greeting Cards Stocked with Spice (11.22.15).

Our hope has always been that our cards stand out- just like our gifts.  You laugh and maybe tear-up a bit when you read them.  Farewell Paperie has been the master of creating cards for this new generation of card-givers.  Way to go, Jen & Lisa!  We continue to be proud carriers of Farewell Paperie.




We are moving July, 2015!

After opening our doors on October 1st, 2012, we quickly learning our little gift shop needed more space to offer you the very best in gift.  We recently found a great new home for wish gifts- allowing us to grow but stay in the neighborhood we love!

Please join us on July 18th, 2015 for our Grand Re-Opening of wish gifts at 750 S. University BLVD (next to Bonnie Brae Tavern and across the street from Bonnie Brae Ice Cream).  More to come on this exciting news….. Here’s a photo from the day our first sign went up!  We can’t wait to open our doors for you!
