Since its opening more than 16 years ago, Gifts and Paper on Plaza in Winston-Salem has been the Triad’s premiere spot for stationery and invitation needs. Over the years, the shop has expanded into more than printing; they have included gift items for many different occasions. Now, they are growing once again and adding more products to their inventory.
“We still are a full-service printing shop for invitations and stationery but decided to take the shop in another direction. New gift items, such as clothing, have been added. Our clothing items include pick up and go pieces, are a good price point, and look good and feel good on. There are also accessory pieces, and customers can easily pull together an outfit,” said owner Robyn Goslen.
Dresses, tops, tunics, cardigans, and wraps are just some of the new clothing items. The pieces come from lines such as Mud Pie, Mainstreet Collection, and Rock Flower Paper. All items are available in different sizes and colors.
“It’s hard to name one piece I’m most excited about because they are all great. I love the dresses and tunics, as well as the long sweaters and cardigans. We have a kimono scarf from Rock Flower Paper that hangs well when you wear it and comes in an array of colors that match everything in your wardrobe,” said Goslen.
Along with the new clothing lines, the number of tabletop and gift items in the shop has also expanded. One addition is the hand-crafted gift line, Mariposa. Some of their products are napkin boxes and weights, frames, and serving trays. There is also a personalization option for the frames and trays, which are perfect for wedding, anniversary, and housewarming gifts. In addition, a new tabletop item is a bigger assortment of accent frames, which can brighten up your room.
“For the tabletop and gift items, we wanted things that customers could grab and go. The shop has a great collection of gifts that aren’t mainstream items and things you can’t find anywhere else. Our selection of items has something for everyone, whether you need a hostess gift or a birthday gift,” said Goslen.
And let’s not forget about the holiday season. Customers can purchase the latest holiday designs from Caspari, Crane, William Arthur, and Vera Wang. These options are good price points with a wide selection of choices that can be bought in store and online. Need a holiday gift for a hostess or friend? The shop carries Vietri tableware and holiday items from Glory Haus.
Along with the new products, monogramming, tote bags, and personalized items are still available.
Gifts and Paper on Plaza’s product line isn’t the only thing expanding. The shop recently revealed their newly designed website. On the site, customers can view the store’s products and shop online, all in the comfort of their home. Online shopping categories include baby and children, gifts for women, gifts for men, and more. Holiday cards, photo cards, and decorations are available for purchase on the site, as well. The selection of decorations ranges from fall, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, complete with a variety of ornaments to hang on your Christmas tree.
“The website is updated daily, with new things being added all the time. There is a wedding shop with links for save-the-dates and invitations. We are thrilled about the new website and everything it has to offer our customers,” said Goslen.
Providing excellent products and service is the number one goal for Gifts and Paper on Plaza. The staff is ready to help customers meet their needs, whether it is finding the right invitations, stationery, or gift.
“The shop is very customer-service oriented and works to make sure people leave happy. We have a lot of great products in a small space, but our staff is here to help guide you towards what you are looking for,” said Goslen.
