While in Madison, I was busy. And looking back, apparently I was hungry. I delighted in light and fluffy Greenbush Donuts with my friend Veronica. I lunched on a Mediterranean Plate from Lazy Jane’s on Willie Street. I ordered three plates at the Blogger Meet-Up Dinner at Bluephies. Ashley and I snacked on maple candy and vegan baked goods at the Dane County Farmers Market, and my high school friends and I shared spicy hot cheese bread, heirloom tomatoes, and Jamba Juice as we continued on State Street. We found samples to try while visiting Ashley at the Madison Marathon Expo 2010, and took part in Wisconsin favorites at Bratfest. Ice cream specials at the Chocolate Shoppe, Asian delights at Chin’s, endless tasty picnic treats at The Meshing, and a farewell lunch at Noodles.
None compared to the Paper Deli.
My friends from Edgewood, Jes and Brian, opened this adorable store in Madison. When Jes, who was one of my co-RA’s when I was working in Residents Life at Edgewood, sent me a facebook message to let me know the store was up and running and waiting for my visit, I knew it was a must-stop location during my Wisconsin Blisscation. Especially when she told me that this sign above their register was inspired by something I had written on a different blog two years prior.
Brian and Jes also have a custom invitation design company, BB Design. You can check out some of their awesome collection of past projects. Brian is available to work with clients long distance through the wonders of the internet, and comes highly recommended.

And tell them Then Heather Said sent you!
Along with high quality paper products, Brian and Jes have hand selected unique stationery, greeting cards, gifts, and office accessories. Dare I say, I wanted one of everything. I had to make a “rule” for myself that I was only allowed to purchase ONE thing while in the store so that I wouldn’t go crazy. [this may not surprise you, but I purchased two things. ahem.] Check out all this fun stuff:
To add the cherry on the top of an already delicious sundae of fun, unique products, check out this adorable packaging each purchase warrants.
And each purchase comes with a Deli snack. How cute is that?
