Known as one of the best card shops in town, Pulp Cards & Paper is sadly shuttering. We discovered the news while driving past the South La Brea haunt this past weekend, where a huge sign notes that they’re have a "We Lost Our Lease" sale. Its unique cards and quirky stationery essentials are going for 50% off. The store's official closing date is October 30th.
We’ll miss the store’s creative collections and focus on indie artists. Below are a few favorite, one-a-kind cards that Pulp fans were most fond of.
Back of card made me laugh - front even better. Pulp on La Brea, funny selection, all levels of anger & profanity. pic.twitter.com/49iFtz8ngY— The Streets Of LA (@Streets_LA) June 4, 2014
