Perfection! I finally had a chance to stop by to check out this store & I can say without a doubt, it blew me away! Its packed with paper lovers dream products like stationary, exquisite wrapping paper, unique greeting cards & inspirational books & even gorgeous coffee table books. They even stock my favorite Dock & Bay 100% recycled (quick dry) towels. Lets not forget the childrens section & a some really cool stuff for the guys in your life, home products, too! You absolutely must check out this store the next time you are in the South End area. Its really close by & so worth the visit!
This is my second time, in this store so I decided to do a review. The Skyscraper has been around Charlotte for sometime. I hidden treasure for the locals and travellers. In fact, while the store, I heard two couples speaking French. I took pictures that are the oblivious store displays but saw some interesting items for the home, car and personal uses. Oh, yes the books on Charlotte. I picked up a guide of places to go around Charlotte. There is one for the Carolinas. Stop on by and support one of Charlotte's few places that remembers Charlotte then and now.
I'm from Michigan and here for business and it was completely incredible for finding little gifts for my friends and family and a little pricey, but way cheaper than the airport, when I come back I need a whole day to go thru the store bc there's so much incredible stuff!
If you are looking for a unique shop offering everything Charlotte and North Carolina, including other good quality gift items from candles to books + puzzles to funny socks, Paper Skyscraper is a fantastic choice. I won't complain about the lack of parking or the crowding around the Christmas holidays, because these are also a huge part of the Charlotte culture and experience. If you live there, you know. And if you are visiting, now you know too!
A great selection of a wide variety of products, kitchen/dining supplies and lots of great greeting cards. A lot of hilarious items to tickle your funny bone. There are more than I've mentioned well worth checking out.
