Papers + Presents is an adorable store in Wellesley, Massachusetts! Carolyn McCoy had an eye for stationery at a young age! Thanks to the inspiration from hometown store in Virginia, Carolyn established a store all her own years later. Papers + Presents is a unique and trendy place to pick up some gifts or just find goodies for yourself. Here at Haute Papier we just had to find out more from Carolyn.
How many years have you been in business? I started my business 23 years ago. Wow!
Do you have a website, if so, what's the address? www.paperspresents.com (on the verge of debuting our new site - with our fresh new look. stay tuned!)
If you were to sell something other than stationery, what would it be? If I didn't have the shop, I think it would be fun to have a cool restaurant.
Besides the obvious (stationery ), what is your favorite thing to give as a hostess gift? For hostess gifts, if i don't give stationery, I like to give a nice bottle of wine (with a darling, custom hang tag!) or a jar of nam's bits (again with my custom label - xoxo, carolyn + tim)
Here at Haute Papier, we love to eat! When in NYC for the National Stationery Show, where is your favorite place to grab dinner? For eats in NYC - Cipriani and Buddakan are faves. YUM!!!
Any other tidbits about your store you'd like to share? We just renovated our store. Having been in this space for 12+ years, we felt it needed a little lovin'. I am really happy with the renovation. Come visit if you are in the Boston area.
