Hello!! I hope all of my South African readers had a lovely Heritage Day yesterday – and of course a lekker braai!! Thankfully we are enjoying some gorgeous sunshine in the Cape (for a change) and so it was a lovely day yesterday!!
I still have some wonderful things to share with you from our recent trip to Los Angeles! (Who knew it would take me THIS long to share everything with you all!!). Today is all about Urbanic Paper Boutique in Venice Beach. I have been following Parcel Post (Urbanic’s blog) for a long while now, and I also follow Audrey Woollen (the owner of Urbanic) on Instagram. Both of these are a constant source of inspiration for me.
What a stunning shop!!! Audrey has put together a stylish array of all the most beautiful stationery brands. A theme running through the shop was “travel” with travel inspired calendars, art, journals and other what-nots. Also – a party theme with beautiful paper cups, wooden cutlery and number “sparklers”.
Something that I found so impressive was the way in which the shop was styled – each area had a “story” and there was no clutter. Even the washi tape was scattered around the shop, fitting in with each theme, and not just piled in a basket or bowl to rummage through. Different brands were all mixed up through the shop, with the end result being so coherent and conducive to an enjoyable shopping experience. This is very much like Parcel Post where Audrey’s posts generally revolve around a “theme”. Such a lovely way of styling your shop!!
Did I buy anything – of course!!!!! And my man waited patiently in the car, and never rolled his eyes when I eventually got into the car carrying 2 bags. Gotta love him!!!
My only disappointment – Audrey was not in the day I was there!! I would have loved to have met her. Maybe one day I will have to pop in again and say hi!!
