WHAT IS PAPER PEONY?
Paper Peony is a vintage, urban renewal store for the discerning fashionista. We go all over the world–okay, that’s dramatic–to find vintage pieces for you to add to your unique closet. We know how terrible it is to have to go rummage through piles of stuff. So we’ll got he sales and the holes-in-the-walls and bring it back to you for a cheaper price.
HOW WAS PAPER PEONY CREATED?
One night, Stella IMed Janet and asked if they could go out to a karaoke. Karaoke led to drinking, lots of drinking led to strange ideas which led to Paper Peony. That is really all that can be said.
WAIT, WHO’S WHO?
We’re Stella and Janet and we like bringing you pretty clothes.
Janet likes to spend time with her boyfriend Tim, their resident photographer for models and merchandising, listening to music, and staying up late.
Stella likes to eat, read, ride bikes, write, and listening to obscure music.
WHY PAPER PEONY?
Oh, Stella likes flowers too. And paper.
COMME UNE FLEUR?
In French; “like a flower”.
We’re looking for fresh, organic faces to join our team. We currently pay in burritos and in Stella’s vegetarian case, bean burritos.
So if you want to help us out for good karma, we need help with:

Frequently Asked Questions —
Where do you guys find all the clothes?
Well, we go all over. Holes in the walls. Flea markets. Vintage stores. We know how difficult it can be to have to rummage through piles and piles of stuff–because that’s what we do, pop advil and then rummage through piles and piles of stufff. But we pick out the best pieces to sell back to you.
Are the clothes used?
Yes, light tear and wear unless otherwise noted. Some items are new too! You can always ask us for more details on all the pieces.
I really, really love your dress. When will that be restocked?
Since all our items are vintage, it is only stocked once. We might find similar pieces, but if you e-mail us, we’ll be on the look out for you.
Why is everything sized SMALL?
We’ll admit it. We’re .. shop-a-holics. So we buy all this stuff, never use it, and it collects dust in our sometimes neat closets. That’s how we got the idea for this store. We’ll be buying for more body types now that the store is open, so please bear with us. We love you, we really do.
When do you re-merch your store?
Everyday! Well, until Stella gets tired. But up until the end of 2008, keep checking back for new pieces. As the New Year rolls around, we’ll plan solid dates on when to check back for new stuff.
Why do we have to fill out a form?
Because all our items are one-of-a-kind, we go by this system so that no item can be bought twice. Plus, it’s easier for us to get your information and send you details, cute letters, and your shipping prices. We hate how superfluous it’ll be, but once our tech guy Kunal figures out how to install PayPal on this, we’ll tell you. We promise.
We love getting cute e-mails. JANET NGUYEN/JANET@PAPERPEONY.ORG
