11 Jun Shop Spotlight | giddy paperie
Lauren and Leslie, the mother-daughter team at giddy paperie, say that “paint+paper=giddy” and we tend to agree! Their soft, yet bold, strokes of creative genius turn mail into art and correspondence into treasures. We are thrilled to share their story with you and look forward to some great collaborations in the future!
Who is the Ideal Customer for giddy paperie?
People feel special when they receive a personalized card or a “real” invitation. Email and the internet are great for a lot of things, but generally people don’t print out an email and save it like a treasure tucked away in a drawer. Our “ideal customer” is someone who loves pretty paper goods and someone who finds joy in the simple things like coffee with a friend or receiving a real birthday card. We see stationery and paper goods as the perfect platform for combining all of our favorite pieces together and want to share this love with all of our customers!
Did you always want to be your own boss?
Yes! Our owner and designer, Leslie, has long been a painter. From years of painting she’s discovered you can’t beat working one-on-one with a client to create the perfect piece of art to use for an announcement, invitation or even a gift. Every painting and project takes on a life of its own.
How do you love to relax?
With our toes in the sand! We are lucky enough live about an hour from the beach, so any chance we have, we head to the ocean.
What is your favorite book to read with your toes in the sand?
One thing you can’t live without?
Coffee and golden retrievers. Both bring so much joy!

Kelly in the City – reading her tweets and blog is like shopping in a store made just for people that love Lilly Pulitzer, Kate Spade and monograms! Her closet = amazing.
