As much I love browsing online, nothing replicates an exquisite retail experience, and as regards stationery stores, Pink Olive is one of the best! Grace Kang is the dynamo proprietress behind the charming trio of stores, which are dotted around New York City: Park Slope, Williamsburg and my old stomping ground, the East Village.
Grace has one of the most impeccable eyes for product and display that I’ve come across, and now every Tuesday starting Sept 16th — that’s tomorrow — from 5-7 pm, she is throwing a Paper Lover Night!
Here’s how it works:
1). For every card purchased from 5-7 pm, you receive a free “you are loved” square individual sticker. So if you buy 10 cards, you get 10 stickers. A box set of 6 cards gets you 6 stickers.
“It is our mission to also spread this message in a bigger way, and there’s no better way to do it than via snail mail,” Grace wrote me. “Our customers love to buy them in packs and insert them in their cards.”
2). With each purchase, you’ll also be entered into a raffle giveaway to win an OliveBox card box.
If you’re not in New York City, you can still participate — just make a card purchase tomorrow evening between 5 and 7 pm, and be sure to put the hashtag #paperlovernight in the comments box at checkout.
The YAL stickers will be included with your order, and you’ll be entered in for the raffle giveaway. Happy card buying!
