Those who’ve lost their way around Shahpur Jat might remember a bookshop called Book Wise. Bad news: It’s gone now. Good news: We found The Paper Store at the same location that had us feeling nostalgic and overwhelmed in equal measures.

Stationery Is Forever Love

cofThe shelves and mysterious corners in this tiny but magical place need to be explored at leisure. There are stacks of handmade paper in varied textures, colours and sizes, beautiful diaries, paper crafts, old stamps, letter notes, elegant greeting cards, quirky gift tags, lamps, trinket boxes made from handmade paper, and lots lots more.

The Beauty In Torn Edges

cofThe shop manager is super helpful {and smiley} company when you’re trying to navigate your way through these inconspicously hidden treasures.

His enthusiasm as he pulls out the collection of original {yes, orginal} film posters of Sholay, Andha Kanoon, Trishul is infectious. He’s also proud of showing off an extensive range of stamps and stamp papers recovered from all over.

This only adds to the experience if you’re someone who doesn’t mind your visit peppered with chit chat and anecdotes.

Gifts Of Love

On your way in {or out}, do take a few seconds to admire the beautiful rows of wrapping paper that hang like psychedelic waterfalls. We insist.

Her ideal day begins with a glass of good cold coffee and a frizz controller that can tackle her mane concerns. Words are her weapons of destruction {or she makes cookies that are sometimes hard enough to shatter glass windows}. She loves beaches, wine and all the good things life has to offer – movies, polka dots and brownies included.
