Catching Up...

It has been a crazy month so far at The Paper Chase! First, we are in the middle of one of my favorite times of the year... Graduation Season! The Graduates have registered for their favorite gift items, and the shopping is in full swing! We have great gifts in all price ranges... perfect for saying "thank you" to your Teachers, too!

Next, I am so excited because our website is almost ready to go live! Here is a sneak peek of our opening page, designed by the talented Leslie Willard of Leslie Adair Photography. Hopefully the site will be ready within the next week!

At the end of this week, on Friday, May 21, we have May's 3rd Friday Downtown! In addition to the regular entertainment, after hours shopping, food and fun of 3rd Friday Downtown, we are planning a "Super Sale" at The Paper Chase, where one item in the store will be marked down almost 50% from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.! It is one of the most popular items in our store, so make sure to be here early for the best selection!
