The Paper Chase
Stationer Dabney Lee sets up shop
With the swirl of activity surrounding the holidays, a good one-stop shop never goes unappreciated. And just in time for all our card and wrapping needs, beloved stationer Dabney Lee has opened her first brick-and-mortar store.
As you might expect from her brand?s punchy graphics, Dabney Lee Woglom?s Dumbo boutique is decked out in vibrant zebra-print wallpaper, and there are pops of color around every corner. In addition to all the fun paper goods, you can also pick up great gift options, like Lucite photo frames ($45 to $120) and colorful cell-phone and tablet cases ($56 to $80). Or choose from the ?stocking-stuffer bar,? which is filled with knickknacks like lip gloss, magnets and mini emergency kits.
Still looking for the perfect holiday cards? Order a customizable suite that incorporates your own text and images and comes with coordinating liners, return address stickers and mailing labels (25 for $88 or 150 for $350).
The biggest holiday help, however, has to be Woglom?s stellar gift-wrapping skills and her arsenal of gorgeous papers and trimmings. Entrust her with your most important packages and take solace in knowing your gifts will give a proper first impression.
