Happy 5th Birthday Paper Pickle!


We've come a LONG way, baby! This is a polaroid picture of our original store which was located on Kent Street in Chatham. We rented a small (400 sq. ft.) space from Joe Comiskey. Oh, how we LOVED our little store. It had our same pickle green walls and wall of stamps...just on a much smaller scale. I still remember listening to Hey Ya by Outkast and painting those walls with Kell and my brother, Jeff. Just picture this group of ambitious siblings shake it to that song!

If you have not heard this song before, check out the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xe9Ur0wEsY
......Shake it like a polaroid picture!


That was five years ago and here we are today! And it is all thanks to you! Without your support, we would not be here. I have always been a firm believer in shopping locally and supporting the stores and entrepreneurs that have taken the leap to make a business work (and that is not an easy thing to do in this community!!!!) Everyday we make decisions on where we are going to spend our money. If we choose to spend it with the big guys every time, we should not complain when we see the little guys closing up and we no longer have any selection in our city! Being a small business owner has been a dream come true for me, but has also been the most humbling experience at the same time.

Enough of my rambling....let's talk about the sale to celebrate this momentous occasion!!!

The entire store will be BUY 1 item, get the 2nd 50% OFF. The only items that are excluded are nestabilities. These will be 15% OFF, as we keep our everyday price on these low.


We will also have a ton of Fancy P
ants items and other items at 50% OFF. Shop early and often as we like to add items to our sales table each day! Sale runs January 13 to January 17.

Oh yeah...we will also be doing a ton of giveaways throughout the week. This will be unlike any sale you have seen at our store before!

I loved your little store on Kent and was almost sad to see you move...but I LOVE the new store and I LOVE you girls (plus Julia and Coulter) and I look forward to a long and happy relationship with you both! Remember, in 4-5 years I could be retired and looking for a part time job! Me and Deb side by side organizing the drawers!
