Best Stationary Stores, June 2007
A signature line of paper, cards, and envelopes in many shapes and creative colors—not just red but “strawberry,” “stardream Mars red,” and “papaya”—can be found at Paper Source. The national chain of 20 bright, airy, and feminine boutiques also offers classes in calligraphy and gift wrapping (don’t laugh, you could learn a few things). Speaking of which, the selection of individual-sheet gift-wrap paper could keep Candy Spelling’s infamous wrapping room stocked for years. A wall of rubber stamps includes initials for personalizing stationery. Also found at 163 W. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, 626-577-3825.
