Shop Small & Shop Local
In the spirit of giving, we ask you all to please consider supporting small businesses when you do your holiday shopping this year.
Every dollar spent at a locally owned, independent business generates 2-3 times more economic activity in our communities than a dollar spent at a national chain. When you shop small, you pay someone's rent, put gas in their car and encourage their dream.
We feel so very lucky to have such incredible customers all year round, but especially during the holidays. We hope you will continue to shop local and shop small - it truly does make a difference in our local economy and in the lives of countless artisans, designers and community members.
Oh, hi there! We're Sarah and Shawn Gluchacki, the owners of The Windmill Paper Boutique. In celebration of Small Business Saturday tomorrow, we thought we'd share a little about ourselves.
Sarah has a BFA in graphic design and painting, and got her start working in a letterpress printing company in Syracuse, New York. Shawn has a background in math and physics and (shockingly) has basic social skills. We were our own first clients when we got married in August 2012, and then moved to Boca Raton to open up The Windmill. We'll travel pretty far for craft beer and great meals, we're serious coffee snobs, and we are known among our friends to send the greatest cards for every occasion (go figure!). We love paper, invitations, weddings, dogs, and a perfect beach day.
