What’s a girl from New Jersey supposed to do in Nashville, Tennessee?
Open a modern, New York inspired stationery store in a very southern town, of course! Owner, Lauren Rauter moved to Nashville in 1998 after marrying the love of her life, Tim, her college sweetheart. With a degree in Textiles and Clothing, a burning desire to have her own store, and not many fashion opportunities in Nashville, Lauren dreamed up a stationery store that would bring downtown New York to downtown Franklin (a suburb of Nashville).
- Paper is a lifestyle
- The Barefoot Contessa can do no wrong
- There’s no excuse not to send a thank-you note
- The Discovery Channel rocks
- Every guest room should have a notepad on the night stand

- The wrapping paper is better than the gift
- A loaf of French bread and pat of butter can make you feel better
- Gift bags are lazy
- Nantucket is the best place on earth
- And… As far as gifts go… anything paper is perfect!
