my first stationery store? moxie papergoods & gifts. moxie is located in the bellevue square mall [moxie's west seattle location just closed]. they sell greeting cards, custom stationery, flat paper, boxed sets and all sorts of fun, random gifts.
i think the thing i loved best about the store was the perfect styling. the store was laid out so nicely and had such a chic feel with the dark walls and subtle lighting -- it was like walking through a booth at the national stationery show, not just another store in the mall. they had a great selection of cards from all my favorite designers -- smock, sycamore street press, elum designs, egg press, etc; i literally could have stayed there all day to browse.
the day i stopped in was, coincidentally, my birthday, so i thought this card by dude and chick was especially appropriate:
be sure to stop in if you're in the neighborhood -- i promise, you'll love it. and if you have any other recommendations of good seattle stationery shops, leave them in the comments!
