A visit to The Paper + Craft Pantry
When we were in Austin a few weeks ago, we stumbled upon the cutest little Paper and Craft Store called The Paper Craft Pantry. If you know me at all, you know I was in LOVE! I actually found them on Instagram because they have the cutest mural outside their shop and everyone and their mama wants their photo taken in front of it! Including me of course! So we had to take a trip there!!
This shop was like my shops twin! Or Maybe more like what I dream of my shop becoming! I met the owner, Pei, when I was in and she was so sweet and helpful! She showed me around, and even gave me some tips and advice as it was right before the opening of my shop- The Perfect Little Store. I had the fam with me, and I think I had more fun than them because I was in my element for sure.
Taking a visit to this adorable shop inspired me to start my workshops up, and even have open studios weekly. Pei has open studios every week, and she gave me the brilliant idea to do the same, which we are starting in August. It’s a time where she opens the doors for a collaborative work setting for people to come in and get work done basically! It’s a co-working time for small business owners and free lancers to come in and get work done and net work with other go-getters! I LOVE THAT! I need that in my life anyways, so why not open my doors!!!! I’m so excited to be starting this in the shop starting in August!
I love her shop-it’s for the makers and creators, and of course even if your not the crafting type, she has a ton of other super cute items there too like greeting cards, candles, clutches and more. You HAVE to stop for a visit if you are ever in East Austin. It’s so cute, and of course you have to snap your photo outside on their uber cute mural wall!!!! Be sure to follow them on Instagram too!
