Rhinebeck’s Paper Trail Always on the Cutting Edge
To call Paper Trail a stationery store is misleading, because owners Maureen Missner and Serine Hastings not only sell classic and cutting-edge notepaper, greeting cards, books, and gift wrap but also artworks made of paper. On Saturday May 8, the store had an opening party for an exhibition of paper constructions (left) made from old books by Ramon Lascano and fanciful paper dresses by Linda Filley that have become the store’s signature window display. When the high winds knocked out the power along Montgomery Street during the party, Missner and Hastings did not resort to lighting candles. “Not with all this paper!” said Hastings.
