Last Weekend for 60% Off Valentines

Going, going, gone! This will be the last weekend for 60% off Valentine's so if you haven't stocked up, you still have a bit of time.

Most of these have a neutral back so you don't have to use just for Valentine's Day.  The dime paper has also been restocked and the sale tables still have some great buys.

We will be open Easter Weekend- Fri., 10-5 and Sat. 10-4

Open Easter Weekend

Wednesday, March 28, 2018

601 Franklin Ave.

Thought I would share with you today our new home in Waco, TX. If all goes as planned, which I think will be a miracle, Paper Crown Waco will be open for business mid May. We will be taking over the right side (Interior Glow)  of this beautiful historic building, The Praetorian. Franklin Ave is in downtown Waco and we are lucky enough to be right on the trolley route.
I have always preferred old houses and buildings over new and was thrilled when this beauty became available. Love the pressed tin on the awnings outside and inside. 
 I will be sharing the bottom floor with two other business, Summer Ellis Bijouterie and BRU Artisan Coffee. A funny coincidence, about 6 years ago I saw Summer's jewelry in Waco and began carrying it at Paper Crown. Now you all can just take a step to the left and swoon over Summer's entire collection; it's a win-win. Another fun perk, there is a very good coffee shop right outside my door- how convenient. When I saw it, I immediately thought of Jackie and Angie, the java girls. The top floors of the building are offices, studios and loft apartments. I believe there is also an airbnb in the building so you can't get much closer than that.

Fun café tables line the store's windows. I love all natural light that will be flooding the store.

Space is currently occupied by a furniture and home décor store. Arrangement for Paper Crown will require some thinking outside the box but we are up for the challenge.

My only hesitation about this space is the classroom area and the landlord is very aware that it is a top priority for the store and is working hard to find options that will accommodate classes. So we will probably have some trial and errors before we find the perfect solution but I am sure we will.
 Our first big event at the store will be a Waco weekend with Stephanie Ackerman on June 29th-July1st. Stephanie will be teaching one of her famous and fun classes, we will tour Waco, do all things Magnolia, shop a little at Paper Crown and hopefully have breakfast at Magnolia Table. Classes, lodging (which you will love!), treats and meals are all included. We only have a few spots available but if you are interested, call the store. I can't think of a better way to kick off Paper Crown Waco. 
I hope you all will stop by and say hello if you are headed south or just come down for a girl's trip. Each of you have a piece of my heart and I absolutely know I will miss you terribly. I have had an amazing run in OKC- blessed way beyond what I deserve.
And by the way, some of you might recognize my neighbor down the street ; ) All the more reason to make a road trip to Waco!

Colorful Goodies for a Dreary Day

This dreary day needed a little brightening up. Fun summer line just in time for your spring break trip or just a little reminder of warmer weather coming soon.

Lots of new inserts and embellishments for your traveler's notebooks. Fun new traveler's notebooks coming soon! I guess in the excitement of ordering these inserts, I forgot the actual notebooks.

Last but certainly not least, a new shipment of cards, stationery and notepads from our very favorite, Rifle Paper.

The 10 cent paper has been restocked and the sale tables replenished.

Slow Delivery is a Gain for You

I had ordered a few pieces that I was going to use at Katie's wedding last weekend but unfortunately,  the delivery time was a tad bit too late. Therefore, my loss is your gain : ) I have some great storage or decorating pieces. I also have a couple of large lanterns which I haven't taken out of the box. Let me know if you are interested.

I have this piece for the store and love it so much I had to order extras. Great size to hold a lot of supplies-
 paint, ribbon, fabric 

Petite and small metal urns look beautiful with spring flowers

Love this large white wire urn. It would have been gorgeous at the wedding but would look
 just as pretty on your Easter table!
Have this stand in two sizes. Great piece to add some heighth to your decorating
Nice large cake stand

4 styles of these vintage vases

Just in, new spring scents from our very favorite candle
makers- Blue Hyacinth, White Lilac, Pacific Lime & Vanilla Grapefruit

Moving Sale Has Begun

Since I am just moving the store and not closing, I will not have a sale where everything goes but it would be nice to cut down on some boxes. From now until the end of April, I will have new sale items out each week. For the most part, everything will either be a dime, .99 or 3.99. Items will stay out from Tues.- Tues. and what doesn't sell will be donated. During the week as items sell I will replenish. All sales are final and I will not be able to hold items.

Here's a sample of what is on our sale tables this week...

All these sheets are a dime

Collection kits $5.99

Each of these items are $3.99

These are a steal for .99

This table is 3.99

This is all less than a dollar

Come check out the great deals
 on the prettiest papers. Due to the large class on Sat., the sale tables will not be out so stop by today or Friday.

Still is Time

I'm back at the store and busy making sure Paper Crown OKC goes out with a big bang! We are still getting in new products and lines; I believe some new Echo Park and American Crafts should be in by the end of the week. I hope to have both a private sale for the loyal Paper Crown girls and a public sale sometime in April. I will keep you posted on those dates.

Later this week, I will share our new Waco home and a special event we have scheduled for the end of June.

For now, I want to let you know about some special classes we have coming up. They are all filling up but we are going to squeeze in as many as we can.
