Stationery Store Day

Stationery Store Day

Greetings from balmy Jefferson, Iowa! As I'm writing this, it "feels like" 102 degrees outside right now... To say that I am ready for fall is putting it mildly. But before I start rambling on about the pumpkin candles I just ordered for the store, let's focus on the week ahead, including celebrating Stationery Store Day. 

What is Stationery Store Day? 

Kristina Burkey has owned the stationery store Calliope in Natick, Massachusetts, for six years and decided to start Stationery Store Day this year. Kristina writes, "Stationery Store Day is a day carved out for everyone who loves paper to celebrate and lift up the most special specialty store: the paper shop! On August 6, visit your favorite local shop!" 

If you're planning to be in Jefferson this Saturday, Warm Wishes is happy to open its doors as your (soon to be favorite) local paper shop. We're so excited to be a part of the inaugural celebration! 

How can I celebrate Stationery Store Day at Warm Wishes?

Come visit! We'll be open from 10:00 am-4:00 pm at 200 E. State Street. Visit early for donuts from Dunkers by Matt. You can enter a raffle to receive Stationery Store Day tote bags filled with gift certificates and hand-picked Warm Wishes merchandise. In store purchases under $30 are eligible to enter the raffle once and orders over $30 can enter twice.

We will also have a table set up to write and send any newly purchased Warm Wishes greeting cards or free Stationery Store Day postcards. We're happy to provide free postage. 

What if I can't join in person? 

Visit the online shop which is open at all hours. Or, post on social media about stationery stores in your area that you love. Stores all around the world are participating. Find your local shop here

Warm Wishes will also celebrate our grand opening the following Saturday, August 13. More info on that to come next week! Follow along on social media for more regular updates.
