There is no room for bore in the colorful life of Emily McCarthy. She resides in Savannah, Georgia with her college sweetheart turned husband and little red-headed, blue-eyed babes, and coastal living gives her life. As a graduate with a BA in Graphic Design and Photography from LaGrange College in LaGrange, Georgia, she’s been an active member of the gift and paper industry for more than a decade. Throughout her tenure, she’s had the experience of working in small independent retail, direct wholesale, large corporate retail, and boutique design. This experience brings knowledge of all things weddings, paper and branding, and it’s an honor to offer it to her clients. Now she’s on the heels of something even bigger – opening the doors to her own flagship store in historic downtown Savannah in April of 2016. Her popular online presence is now a real-life sensory experience right on Abercorn Street. Within the walls of The Shoppe, you’ll find items and designs reminiscent of Emily’s inspirations, loves, passions, and things that simply make her smile. You’ll also see several of Emily’s exclusive licensed products and collaborations. She has several licensing programs in place for wholesale of her products nationwide.
