“No text message or email can come close to a handwritten note,” declares graphic designer and illustrator Alissa Harvey, who hopes to revive the lost art of writing words on paper with the launch of this paper-goods boutique. Offered are stationery, invitations, and place cards. While goods by Crane & Co. and Luscious Verde are available, the shop also offers a selection of stationery by smaller, independent designers such as Harvey’s own Mew Paper Arts line. Also offered: logo design, identity packages for businesses, calligraphy and digital calligraphy, and in-house printing with same-day service.

Turns out your toddler was onto something with her mix-and-match approach to getting dressed. With the matchy-matchy look so last century, this fun fashion boutique, focusing on girls sizes eight to 14, is right on the money. While its core business started as a line of purposely mismatched socks for girls and women, it has since expanded to include dresses, casual wear, accessories, bedding and gifts.
