- Though I'd never met store owner India Davis, she greeted me like a long lost friend when I walked in the door. Her store is bright, cute and welcoming. Her store is organized partially by theme and partially by manufacturer, so there's something there for all paper crafters to discover. – Susan, PaperCrafter's Corner
