In Charleston, the best place to do that is Mac & Murphy, a boutique located smack in the middle of the rapidly expanding Cannonborough-Elliotborough neighborhood and curated by Liz Macpherson and Ami Murphy (photo of the duo below).
I love the modern, playful vibe inside the shop as much as I love the mix of on-trend, national paper companies and local stationary collections such as Ink Meets Paper and Gadabout. It's a delicate, artisan-focused balance, but they pull it off season after season.
And lucky for all you love bugs out there that can't get to Charleston to shop, Macpherson and Murphy pulled together a smattering of their favorite Valentine's Day cards below. Give the ladies a ring or shoot them an email and they'd be happy to send a stack your way.
