Papier owner Valerie Kyros deserves a medal. She and colleage Pam boxed up their entire Free Street stationery boutique and reopened next door for seven weeks while their shop was renovated from top to bottom. Once construction was complete, they moved everything back in and recently invited the local business and wedding community in for an evening to get acquainted with the updated store. A new bridal consult loft, gleaming restored hardwood floors, and shelves stocked to the top with fresh product were on display, while passed yummies and champagne punch from Aurora Provisions made the occasion extra festive. Modern blooms from neighboring Compositions Floral brightened the new space even more as guests mingled amongst themselves and likely started to make their holiday wish lists (we did!). I photographed the store in the afternoon, while fellow photog Steve captured the evening soiree. Enjoy a few pics here, but be sure to swing by and compliment the ladies on a great renovation in person! Cheers to Heather of Cairn Event Consulting for a great event!
