Stationery Stores in the Twin Cities - First Stop: Ampersand

Recently I visited the Ampersand Shop in Edina (suburb of Minneapolis). My goal is to visit all of the stationery stores in the Twin Cities' area between now and the end of next year. I didn't get a picture of the outside of the store (which is located in an upscale strip mall not far from another favorite place of mine, The Container Store). I found this image on their website.

Some of the stores are mostly all stationery and some of the stores have just a little bit of stationery with a lot of other types of gift items. Such is the case with Ampersand Shops.

Don't you love this Letters plate? Me too!
I took the photo above because I liked how their name was decorated with plates. Very original.
Here we have some postcards. Aren't they great? I love unique and unusual postcards
A wonderful selection of boxed note cards.I maybe should have taken some close-ups of some of the designs.
This is my favorite - a giant LOVE ball. They have a variety of sizes and colors. This one is a 5' ball that sells for $99.
Stay tuned next week for another stationery store visit. What's your favorite stationery store?
