my fave shop around the corner.

i really have a huge adoration for little boutiquie shops.
vintage stores. paperies. silver shops. gift markets. book stores. bakeries.
it doesn't matter what type of shop it is.
i just simply have a penchant for terribly sweet little shops. 

i love spending lengthy hours perusing the shelves.
finding new gems & old treasures. 
pretty little tokens & oversized pieces.
classic pieces of literature & glossy coffee table books.
it is pure bliss. 

just give me a cinnamon iced coffee. a big tote bag. & a darling shop.
and this my idea of a most lovely little afternoon jaunt. 

i have several little shops that i frequent in our area.
a great little vintage shop just over the bridge. 
a darling bakery in our downtown.
a stately silver store on the other side of town.
a garden shop just a short drive away.
and a handful of gift shops sprinkled around.

i adore them all.

but i really adore one little shop most of all.
not just because the store boasts impeccable style & design.
but because i truly adore the sweet little owner.
and her sidekick + one.
(sidekick sarah is expecting baby number one)
never have i met sweeter. more joyful. more enthusiastic. more gracious. ladies.
than the ladies of the one and only
beach papery and gifts. 

yun stanton is the owner & the creative mind behind the shop.
and let me tell you, the girl has got style.
she knows how to dress a room like you've never seen.
the master of correspondence etiquette. the queen of decorating christmas trees.
the centerpiece extraordinaire. and the gift giving guru.
she practically overflows with style & class.

sarah is equally as wonderful.
quick to help. and ever quicker to laugh.
she will greet you with a cheerful hello & a helping hand. 

these ladies are just the greatest.

beach papery & gifts truly has it all.
stationery. invites. save the dates. cards of all sorts.
wreaths. frames. and wall decor galore.
books. and trinkets. and treasures of wit. 
an abundance of gifts for little & big moments.
and everything you could possibly imagine in between. 
vietri. waterford. mackenzie-childs. are also available.
