My favorite Charlottesville stationary shop "Rock Paper Scissors" was selected as one of the best stationary stores of the south in Southern Living's April 2012 article "Queens of Correspondence." In the write-up, I was listed as a "Virginia artist!" RPS was the first store to ever purchase my book cards, so they have a very special place in my heart.
There's the text from the section about RPS:
"Compelled by a love for paper, Heather McNulty Haynie and Dani Antol purchased Rock Paper Scissors from its previous owners [sic] in 2010. One of Heather's favorite brands is Sapling Press, which works in partnership with dearblankpleaseblank.com to turn user submissions into cards with sayings, such as "Dear Noah, We could have sworn you said the ark wasn't leaving until 5. Sincerely, The Unicorns." Noteworth: Rock Paper Scissors carries the works of several Virginia artists, such as Maria Adelmann and Laurel Denise."
