Pretty Paper

Paper Source Comes to Santa Barbara

Creative types rejoice: Paper Source, the paper store that caters to connoisseurs of “fine and artisanal papers,” has come to our seaside town. The company, which was founded in 1983 in Chicago, has taken up residence on State Street across from the S.B. Museum of Art (appropriately). In addition to beautiful papers, they carry quirky items such as toast look-alike coasters, rubber finger monsters, and “Keep Calm and Carry On” mugs. Folks can start poking around the store Friday, February 10; there will be a grand opening for the community March 3, 10:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. that will feature hands-on events and a raffle to win Paper Source swag.
