Exquisite Private Brands from Kate’s Paperie

Several weeks ago my wife an I spent a long weekend in NYC, my regular readers will know that this typically means a couple of NYC related posts, unfortunately it I have neglected some nice Private Brand work. As a result the next couple of posts will be snapshots of some of what I saw as my wife and I wandered around NYC.

Boutique paper store Kate’s Paperie has five stores in the city and has recently jumped to national attention with a line of beautiful cards at Target is a favorite of my wife, so we never miss a chance to explore a store. They carry an assortment of national and boutique brands as well as a number of their own Private Brand products. They are obviously transitioning from one logo to the next but the products are beautiful and the store is pretty cool.
