A Visit to Paper Source in Edina

I love visiting stationery stores! Looking, touching, dreaming, buying. There are four Paper Source stores in the Twin Cities. This post is about my recent visit to the Edina store. In a previous post, I wrote about my visit to the Mall of America store. You can read that here.

The ladies working here were super friendly and seemed like they were having fun at their jobs- helping customers, changing displays, answering the phone. Very upbeat! I liked it.

So many good things on display – lots of pens, markers, planners, note cards, calendars and so much more!

This cute back door was at the back of the store. The store had lots of light mostly coming through the front and side windows.

They even had a public bathroom right in the middle of the store. It was perfect! Maybe all the stores have one. I’ve never checked before. But was delighted to find one unexpectedly.

I’ve been on the hunt for pretty papers like these (below) to use as backgrounds in my new photo light box as I strive to improve the photographs I take for this blog (It’s a work in progress).

Lots of lettering promos and books.

Are you ready to take your lettering to the next level?

You might want to see if your local Paper Source store is hosting their own classes.

I took a calligraphy class years ago and it helped improve my penmanship quite a bit. Maybe it’s time for something new. How about you?

    My local store didn't have the Creative Lettering class. I really wanted to go. Did you take the class? How was it?

    Hi Melody,

    I didn't take the class either. Maybe another time. That's too bad that your local store didn't offer it. Maybe they will in the future.
