  6. Paper Source Takes Brooklyn



    Recently, we were invited to Brooklyn to partake in the Etsy Open Call, and having never been to Brooklyn before (don’t judge us – we’re midwesterners!), we took to the streets to explore the lush creativity the city had to offer before we experienced the lush creativity the Open Call had to offer. With suggestions from you, we ate, carouseled, crafted and ate even more of our way towards the Esty headquarters. While our waistbands will never forgive us, Brooklyn and the Etsy Open Call reminded us exactly why we do what we do here at Paper Source and the amazingly creative people in the world who inspire us to do and be better. Here is a little insight into the Open Call and Paper Source taking Brooklyn (although sadly, not back to Chicago):
