We’re thrilled to introduce you to another fabulous shop where you can pick up Kate & Birdie products. This time, we’re taking you just a couple provinces over to feature Notables Stationers, a wonderful paper goods shop located in Edmonton, Alberta.
Notables was founded in 1986 by Suzanne Davis, the shop’s owner and president. The shop combines Suzanne’s mind for business and love of fine stationery – offering an extensive selection of quality cards, invitations, papers, imprintables and gifts.
We’ve had the pleasure of working with Suzanne ever since we can remember. She is one of the sweetest and smartest ladies we know in the business. In fact, she’s one of the only owners to stop in to visit our studio and place an order directly from our workstations! – Gloria & Amy
For a closer look at what makes this store tick, we asked Suzanne a few questions about work and life as a stationery shop owner…
Name 3 things in the shop you can’t live/work without.
No. 1 – I can’t live without a great fountain pen. I hang one on a cord around my neck at work and always have it with me.
No. 2 – Wonderful thank you notes. You are more likely to write that all important thank you note when you have great ones at home and at work. At home, I have a fun, personalized box of thank you notes for my husband and I. At work, we have a beautiful letterpress note with our logo on it that all of the sales associates use.
No. 3 – At work, I couldn’t be without my black labradoodle, Chloe. She gets to come to work every day with me.
If you could spend a weekend anywhere, where would you go?
I’m very fortunate that I do travel a lot, but if I could spend a weekend anywhere – camping in B.C. with my husband and dog!
What is your favourite Kate & Birdie product?
The journal. I took my bicycle journal to Italy with me – cycling through Tuscany. How appropriate and lovely to write in.
Tell us something that we might not know about Notables.
Two of our favorite charities are: the Edmonton Public Schools Foundation – supports full day kindergarten and early learning in socially vulnerable neighborhoods. And, Olive Tree Projects – cares for the health and well being of moms and babies in Haiti.
Thank you Suzanne!
