Our very first Got Craft? Virtual Market – Paper + Print Edition is taking place Thursday, July 23rd to Sunday, July 26th.
Shop from 30 makers and small shops from across Canada featuring stationery and paper goods such as greeting cards, art prints, notebooks, journals, notepads, gift tags, pencil pouches, calendars, stickers, pens + pencils, and more! Enjoy flat rate shipping in Canada and the US and free Vancouver curbside pick up!
As part of our action plan to welcome and highlight diversity and representation in the maker and small shop community, we will be offering grants to BIPOC applicants. For more info and to apply online (for either grants or no-grants), please visit our website here.
A huge new restock of little low studio cards have arrived at the shop! We’ve been carrying her cards since the beginning of London Fields Shoppe and are thrilled to be adding some new designs to the current line up.
Quirky Paper Co. will be one of the new vendors at the Got Craft? spring show this May! Cheryl will be bringing a collection of greeting cards and paper goods that bring together unique ideas and thoughtfully crafted designs. Each of their products are created with the goal of connecting people and inspiring joy in everyday life with ideas that are funny, playful, personal, and of course, quirky!

Oh hi! Mélanie Kimmett here. I’m incredibly proud to have the opportunity to introduce you to my new stationery line Pretty Paper Please. I’ve lovingly created this line over the course of a year. Its evolution has been such a joy, as I’ve explored my life-long love for animals (if I had been good at science and slightly less emotional, I’d be a vet today). Along with animals I’m a sucker for simple shapes and design dressed in vibrant colour, often influenced by the seasons. You’ll notice these recurrent themes throughout most of my work.
I’d like to think letter and card writing is making a bit of a comeback lately. The ease and speed of email, e-cards, Facebook and Twitter are appreciated but there’s no denying the magic of receiving a handwritten note in the mail, right? Who wants it to be about bills and junk mail all the time!? Not me! Which is why Pretty Paper Please came to be!
Allowing yourself a bit of quiet time just before the holidays to sit back and write the heart-felt words you’ve wanted to share with family and friends can be such an incredible treat! Now imagine being on the receiving end and experiencing the joy of opening and reading that personal note… Regardless of writing or receiving the love notes this year, I’m eager to get started!
Thanks to lotus events, I’d like to gift you this same experience and offer a Pretty Paper Please holiday card giveaway! If chosen at random, you will win 12 cards (total) in 2 styles (your choice) from the holiday collection – that’s a lot of love to send around this holiday season!
