Kitschy kitchen gear, hand-crafted, made-in-Winnipeg dolls and funky and fabulous stationery are just a few of the things that have made The Paper Gallery the go-to gift and greeting card store for 35 years. Personalized customer service keep shoppers coming back season after season. Owners Anne and Itzik Joudan (pictured)—who know many customers by name—are the heart of the business. The couple bought the store 15 years ago and moved it from its original Academy Road location to its current Corydon Avenue home five years ago. Today, the pair makes annual buying trips to gift shows in Toronto and New York where they shop with Winnipeggers in mind. “We buy fun but practical gifts,” Anne says. Indeed. From the oinking pig, chip-bag clip to the apron accessorized with a string of pearls, humour is present on every shelf. 1437 Corydon Ave, 204-488-2585, Map 2: D-3.
