ROWR. by hello! Lucky available at Shadowbox
We've all been there: that sinking feeling you get when you walk into the grocery store the day before Valentine's and realize the only cards left are the ones no one else wanted.
Perhaps you've been to the grocery store or an actual card store days before the holiday at hand and had an equally sinking feeling: these cards are un-original, un-inspired, or just plain tacky.
There is a solution to the ugly, plain, picked-over Valentine's Day card (or any holiday card or just "plain-ol'-day" card, for that matter): paper stores.
A favorite in Chattanooga is Shadowbox: Paper & Everyday Living. Here, Mariah Mayfield, the owner, and her staff actually know the type of paper the cards are printed on and the method of printing used. You are not going to find any second-rate cards. Shadowbox carries cards that will get right to the heart (sorry, no pun intended) of the matter. Some favorite brands are Smudge Ink, hello! Lucky, and Whimsy Press.
Valentine's Day is in three weeks.
And remember, a fashionable person does more than dress well, they do everything well (no pressure!).
