There are so many changes going on around mac & murphy and we apologize for our lack of blog updates. We are currently in the midst of a total redesign of our website (with the wonderful team of Ink Meets Paper) , shooting all content for the store (with the amazing Charlotte Elizabeth Photography) and creating a blog resource directly link to our web content. Seeing as we are pencil & paper kind of gals, this has been no easy task and has kept our brains someone occupied. Couple that with a complete and total data loss and recent rebuild of our sales software and that makes for two very busy girls.

Today however, our little shop scored a major win.

Its been 3yrs in the making but we are finally carrying one of Liz Mac's favorite lines :

- Carrot & Stick Press -

This is the perfect go to notecard for just about any occasion and we are thrilled to be able to offer them to you today in our Charleston, SC shop and some day soon, our checkout shop on the fabulous world wide web.

We'll keep you posted on the progress - we promise. xoxo


I Love You, Bikes

It was so fun seeing our friends from Yellow Owl Workshop featured in the latest J.Crew catalog with this fantastically unique correspondence set. We ordered these for the shop a few weeks ago and have been singing their praises since their arrival. Included is 12 notes sheets, 12 patterned envelopes and a pencil inscribed with Je t'aime, velos.

Keep it local peeps and pick yours up in the shop today. See you soon!

one of our favorites

while catching up on our reading, we stumbled across this beautifully shot vendor spotlight featuring one of our favorite designers whose line we are endlessly honored to carry in the shop. please take a moment to meet Cheree Berry and if you are anything like us and just have to check out her work, pop into the shop to see her latest stationery and wedding designs. you will thank yourself.

just in time...

just in time for Easter this handmade little created hopped into mac & murphy. made with love by the lovely Jean Johnson of Bobbin Designs, in collaboration with fabric designs by Charleston local, Clewis Reid, these cards are truly little works of art and the perfect keepsake for spring.


Oh, hi there!

My goodness it's been a long time. We are oh so sorry to have neglected you all these months but we're back now and we promise to be much better friends. In fact, we plan on becoming a new, shinier version of ourselves in the near future so be on the lookout for that. In the meantime, we're happy to be here and will be back later today with a post featuring our favorite cards for this upcoming crappy (we mean sappy) holiday.

here's a snap shot of what we've been up to this winter while not in the store.
