Us Super Cute Kawaii-ers live in Glasgow, Scotland, where we’ve been without a Paperchase for quite some time. So, you can imagine how delighted we were to hear that a new branch was coming to town! It’s been in the works for literally years, but it finally opened last week, so Bunny and I took a trip into town on opening day to check it out.
It was very cold and snowy, so we were pleased to get inside to a bright and airy shop crammed with cute stuff galore!
The much-touted exclusive Scottish range was rather a let down – was tartan really the best you could come up with, Paperchase?! You should have asked us, we could have advised!
An entire wall dedicated to notebooks? Yes, please!
My favourite range is definitely this food with faces one – tacos, fries, ketchup bottles – always a winner for me and that cup will be mine!
Upstairs, there is a big airy art supply area, a Tinderbox coffee store and a “concept room” – I don’t know why they didn’t just name it “expensive gift area”, cos that’s what it is! They were still unpacking stuff, so we’ll have to go back once it’s settled in a bit and see how they’re getting on.
And finally, here’s Bunny in a pair of floral bunny ears for your viewing pleasure – I can’t take her anywhere!
