Paper Hat brings crafty-cool art and handmade goods to
Greta Norlander believes art should be accessible to all. That’s why she stocks her new shop, Paper Hat, with affordable pieces—some prints run as low as $35—as well as a rotating series that will interest fine-art collectors. (They even open with a swanky party.)
Norlander’s background in graphic design and art direction serves the shop well, because while everything is handmade, nothing looks home-made, and the shop is artfully curated, with a darling front window. Offerings run the gamut from bath-and-body goodies to aprons to jewelry, with many items made in Minnesota or the Midwest.
The shop inspires a one-for-you, one-for-me feeling—especially because Norlander carries items like clutches by Emerson Made, a cult-status fashion/accessories label that’s not available anywhere else locally. You’ve been warned: stop to get a present for a friend and you’re likely to leave with a gift for yourself, too.
