A good stationery shop?

Paper Dolls birthday cardsLisa emails:

I'm trying to find a store in the area that sells handmade or specialty papers/stationery, like Paper Source (various locations in major cities). Major plus if they have things made by local artists. Know of anywhere like that?

Our favorite local store of that type might be Paper Dolls in Saratoga. But if you're looking for stationery by local artists, Etsy might be your best bet (you can do searches by location).

Have a suggestion for Lisa? Please share!

Apparently there is a paper manufacturing company in Cohoes? I know nothing about them, but they were featured in the Albany Institute's "Get the Message" exhibit and their paper samples were very high quality.

you can't buy stationary directly from mohawk paper. They manufacture the huge rolls of paper and then sell them to distributers. There are some good cards at borders and barnes and noble. Also try Pearl Grant Richmond in Stuyvesant Plaza. They have a lot of great cards... some are local, maybe too.

Not sure how they are as I haven't had much need for stationary, but this place:

is in Ballston Spa.

Anchor No. 5 Boutique on River Street in downtown has a cool selection of locally made and well designed cards. (Including mine!!!)

Check out this recent story on the store:

Actually, I poked around the Mohawk Paper site and they have regular sheets of paper for sale at http://www.mohawkpaperstore.com/

Only blank paper though, nothing fancy.

If you're looking for cards, check out Elissa Halloran's shop on Lark St, and also check out At The Warehouse on Learned street. Does anyone know where to buy sealing wax?

Different Drummer's Kitchen in Stuyvesant Plaza carries handmade cards and I am the artist. Plenty of fine Valentine cards are available as well as other designs. Enjoy!

Thank You!

The City should take a more proactive approach based on neighborhood consensus. A prescriptive design guideline with great clarity could save lots of graves for aspiring developers and other stakeholders. The City has to be clear upfront on conditions to be met such as overall allowed building volume, easy river connection, parking, pedestrian oriented ground floor usage and etc. It not seems reasonable to expect commercial developers to build something on their own initiative to both maximize ROI and please all city residents.
