Last night when I was entertaining my kids at the mall (they have a play area), I discovered a new store, Paper Thread. Since I pretty much live under a rock, this store is probably common knowledge to most people but nonetheless, it is new to me. When I first saw it, I thought it was a Paper Source and I had died and gone to heaven. (I don't think there are Paper Source stores in Ohio. Sad.) However, upon entering I decided this store is equally as rad. It's like a mix between Paper Source and Anthropologie and I love it, love it, love it! The name, says it all: Paper Thread. Two things I'm very passionate about. I had both my kids with me so my time was VERY limited (Mitch isn't a real trooper when it comes to shopping) but this is what I could gather in the few minutes I spent in the store. It is an eclectic mix of fun paper goods (stationary, wrapping paper, custom invitations, envelopes) with a few fabric-type items (ribbon by the yard, totes, funky throw pillows and quilts.) BUT, my favorite part of the store? They have a real photo booth! I've seen the lame digital ones but this was a real, bona fide photo booth that prints out four black and white photos on a little film strip! (Jared and I's next date night is for sure going to include blowing some money in that booth.) Anyway, most of the items I checked out seemed a little pricey so I'll most likely never buy anything there, but it will definately be on my list of fun places to window shop. I'm a little bummed because I am unable to find a Paper Thread web-site. Has anyone else heard of this store? Do you think it's rad too?
