My love (obsession) for paper products, pretty things and parties began when I was a small child. It was nurtured by my mother's love of stationery, beautifully wrapped gifts, fresh flowers, a well set table and antiques. It now seems a natural fit that I'm the owner of a small fine stationery & gift boutique (Hayden Avery) located in central Austin. I love that my days are spent in a relaxing and pretty environment. I get to know all different kinds of people, at some of lifes' most exciting milestones, through their selections of unique invitations, announcements and personal stationery. I hope some of my favorite pretty things become some of your favorites as well.
