Brookline(Boston)'s The Paper Source

A cross between a LSS and chain, this two front store offers a lot of goodies. With over 15 locations The Paper Source is able to sustain it's own rubberstamping line. It also houses handmade paper, fine stationary and novelty trinkets. But, I suppose you are more interesting in their papercrafting supplies which range from Teflon Bone folders to Versafine Ink. I also loved their aforementioned rubberstamping line which has a diverse range of images. While some are tame verisions of buddha's and airplanes others house swear words. An entire wall was dedicated to ribbon and let me just tell you it was GORGEOUS!

I walked out of the store with two small containers of Judkins Embossing Powder (in Hannukah and Egyptain Gold), a long stamp which read 'Do Something Creative Everyday' (which I just about had a heart attack when I saw it as it is basically my mantra) and a funky sheet of paper (not just any paper, this was $3.99 goodness).

It was lovely, well organized and quite large. They also seemed to have items that would appeal to the novice as well as the advanced stamper. However, it was not exclusivly a stamp store and therefore much of its space was dedicated to other things. The prices were fair but a little expensive for ribbon. If you're in the boston area it accessible by the T and is located close to Cooliege Corner. All and all I would rate it 4 stars out of 5.
