  • Something we love...

    Something that we value at Paper Trails is connecting with the community and sharing with them our passion for what we do. Yesterday, our bridal consultant Melissa spent the morning with a class of fourth graders at Horace Mann Elementary in Lakewood. She taught a lesson on writing proper thank you notes-- something everyone needs to learn at some point in their lives! Especially these days, when everything is online and you can do just about anything without even speaking to another human, we think it's so important for young people to be learning to value connecting with each other through hand written notes and letters.


    Melissa first went over the points to include in a proper thank you note. Then students got to practice by writing their own thank you notes to people who had helped them get school supplies for the school year. They loved having their own thank yous to write and give to people!


    We absolutely love opportunities to connect with the community like this. If you or someone you know would like us to visit their class, please contact us! info@shoppapertrails.com or 440-333-0033.


  • Moving into Fall

    This past weekend was really successful! We started putting out our Halloween merchandise (where has 2015 gone?) and had a ton of visitors thanks to the Rocky River Fall Arts Festival! The festival was wonderful, even if it poured rain at the beginning and end... Our store was a warm and cozy hideout for people.

    We are so excited to be moving into fall in our store, and it seems like Ohio is following suit. We've had a couple really nice cool days and the leaves are turning. It's becoming our favorite season. 

    Be sure to stop by the store to see our adorable Halloween stuff, and Thanksgiving merchandise before too long. We look forward to seeing you.



  • Rocky River Arts Festival

    We are super excited for an event happening in our area next weekend (September 12th.) The Rocky River Fall Arts festival is taking place from 10 am to 5 pm in the Old River Shopping Area--right outside our shop! We can't wait to see the art created by the participating local artists and get to meet some of them. This year there are 76 participating. We hope that you'll all come out and enjoy the festival. If you do, make sure you stop inside Paper Trails and say hi! 

    On the day of the festival, Old Detroit Road and Depot Street will be closed. 

    We hope to see you there!

  • Mid-Summer School Dreams

    Even though it seems as though summer just began, it also seems to be winding to a close! The idea of back-to school shopping is getting us super excited for fall. Now is a great time to head over to our website for awesome back-to-school deals.  Agendas and 17-month calendars are in and as usual we have a sweet collection to choose from, including momAgenda, Emily Ley, and Waste Not Paper. Even though we are sad to watch summer fade, new seasons always get us excited for what's next and what's new. We have lots of new product on the way and so many things planned for the coming months. Stay tuned!
