If you've ever wandered into Paper Trails, the cute little card shop on Main Street, you've probably come out with at least one of their pretty, whimsical cards. Or maybe a funky gift (I was especially fond of the handmade "Groom" and "Father of the Groom" cufflinks I got for my brother and my dad a few years ago.)
Sadly, no more. Thanks to America's suffocating economy, Paper Trails will be closing its doors by the end of the month. That's downtown's loss -- one less independent retail store to pop into when roaming Sundance Square.
As of today, most of the store's merchandise -- except for cards -- is being priced to move. But things are thinning out, so stop by while there's still stock left to buy. And maybe just to say good-bye to a good neighbor, and thanks for six years of cool cards.
