Soaps & Scents greeting cards

A haven for card lovers in Wauwatosa

You can keep your gifts — just give me the card. A high-quality, made-in-the-USA, "hand-printed on an antique press and printed on 100% recycled paper" card with a killer envelope. I will obsess over it and it will never leave its special spot on the fridge. You have my word.

I love getting cards almost as much as I love buying and sending them. Call me crazy, but greeting cards really are my weakness. Other girls can't say no to designer shoes, fine leather handbags, or everything at T.J. Maxx — but I can't walk into a boutique-y card shop and leave without spending around $30. Might not sound like much moolah, but it's all relative — I'm talking about cards here after all.

I believe good cards are a great thing to stock up on, and when you see one that jives with you, buy it. Someday you're going to want to thank somebody, send condolences, or say "I love you" — you know that perfect card will come in handy. If you don't buy it, you're left scrambling, running to Walgreens and settling for something that's all wrong. So snatch up the good ones when you can.

The card offerings at Soaps & Scents are wonderful. They carry lots of different designers, so the variety is grand and still every single card met my crazy-card-lady marks for quality (good paper stock, nice size variety, solid envelopes, and plenty of blank options so you're not stuck with a stupid pre-written sentiment that sounds nothing like you). I stocked up on cards for babies, birthdays, and thank-yous — all good to have in your arsenal. I can't wait to go back to Soaps & Scents for Christmas cards — I'm sure they won't disappoint!
