Just heard the news, the great store and gallery Paper Boat Boutique in Milwaukee WI will be closing its doors, if you are in Milwaukee or passing through be sure to stop by and see the last show and pick up some of the amazing hand made work they sell.
here's what the folks there have to say:
Dearest patrons of Paper Boat,
As of May 31st Paper Boat Boutique & Gallery will be closing its doors after 4 great years of being open. The current economic climate is the main reason that led us to this very difficult decision.
We really hope you can join us for our last Gallery reception featuring work by Wisconsin artist Micaela O'Herlihy on Gallery Night, April 17th from 7-10pm.
There will also be a closing sale for the month of May to help us reduce our inventory. It will be a great time to pick up those items you've always been meaning to get. Also, don't forget to spend your gift certificates if you have been holding onto one!
We thank you so very much for your support over the past 4 years. Even though the Boat is closing, we are excited to seek out new opportunities and projects. We also want to stress the importance of supporting the remaining small businesses and galleries in Milwaukee. Those spaces are vital to keeping our city and our community unique and enjoyable.
We hope to see all of you during the last couple of months of being open!
The ladies of the Boat-
Faythe Levine & Kim Kisiolek
