The Olive Shoe Paperie & Goods is a stationery and gift boutique based in Anderson, South Carolina. Lauren James, creator and owner, loves to celebrate with her clients: weddings, babies, birthdays, soirees, you name it. With a degree from Clemson University in Communications and Advertising, Lauren garnered experience working in small business, non-profit, and international manufacturing prior to becoming a full time entrepreneur and shop owner. Lauren created a blog as a creative outlet during a particularly difficult season of life, followed by a baby shower invitation as a favor for a friend and her "side-hustle" began - and continued - to grow after friends and friends of friends continued to request various invitations and stationery items. The "side-hustle" doubled year over year before she left her corporate job of nearly a decade in March of 2019. With clients from South Carolina to Australia, The Olive Shoe specializes in celebrating life's memorable moments, both milestone and miniscule. From invitations, event branding, and design consulting to personal stationery, hostess gifts, and surcees, The Olive Shoe strives to offer luxury stationery, thoughtful gifts, and unique art to clients for every occasion.
