Seaside Papery is a whimsical stationery shop complete with a dog made of rope standing guard at the counter and hanging butterfly window displays that change seasonally. Seaside Papery carries everything from gift wrap and personalized note cards to wedding accessories and candles. Special to the shop are some exclusive stationery lines like Smock, Mr. Boddington's Studio, Spark, Lilly Pulitzer, Elum and Dauphine, which specialize in event invitations (such as weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs and parties) as well as birth announcements. When creating invitations and announcements, the staff at Seaside Papery takes pains to sit down and spend as much time with a client as necessary to discuss the customization process in detail. Known for its intricate window displays, the store also sells unique gifts, books, cards and writing utensils.
