Paper Sparrow sold

paper sparrow artworkKate Eggleston, the owner of the fab downtown Troy shop The Paper Sparrow, has announced on her blog that she's sold the store. Her last day will be this Friday, August 27.

Writes Kate in the post:

I'll miss my customers, my neighbors, and the new friends I've made since opening these doors two and a half years ago. Troy is an amazing place, one that I'd given up on years ago, but it has come a very long way. It's so nice to be a part of such a fantastic community with great people and a friendly, welcoming environment. I hope to always be a part of it.

She says the new owner will be keeping the shop open, with a new name and look.

Well...she really didn't sell the store. Another person signed a lease which allowed Kate to get out of hers. The new shop owner is a local crafter who will feature all handmade items from local artists. Should be excellent!

:( good luck in your next endeavors, kate. you and your shop will really be missed.

Oh man! I remember being there when it opened! This is sad....but years later, I still have her business card and it sits pretty on my fridge as a talking point. Good luck, all.
