Welcome to My Pad

Lei ChicHe looked great on paper.

In person, your friend’s co-worker’s “great sense of humor” consisted of ripped-off dumb blonde jokes. His “stylish look” was a crumpled, too-tight tee and his “generous spirit” folded when it came to splitting the bill.

It looks like this night is a total write-off.

You’d love to spend some time with a real card guaranteed to make a big impression. You’ll find it at South Shore Paperie.

The new stationery shop is the work of Bradley & Lily creator Stacey Nomura. After six years selling her luxurious custom letterpress pieces printed on an antique press, Nomura decided to create a space where people could come to find unique cards and notes.

Lei Chic Sleek, white shelves hold greetings separated into occasions including quirky designs by Rifle Paper Co., whimsical looks by Kate & Birdie, and colorful prints by local company Mozaic. You can browse Bradley & Lily’s full collection of custom invitations and for the first time, pick up preprinted cards by Nomura that can be personalized on site with your special message. 

Every custom wedding order can include a private  in-store invitation stuffing party for brides and five BFABs (best friends and bridesmaids).

Meaning when your date finally ends in “save the date” cards you’ll know where to go.

Duly noted.
