We are over the moon to be back to hosting events in store! If you're local to Middle Tennessee or stopping in for a visit, we hope you’ll drop by to say hi at our Franklin or Nashville store locations. Mark your calendar for these local happenings coming up soon!
MEET THE ARTIST - THE PEN & PIPER
AUGUST 5 | WHITE BRIDGE | 1PM - 5PM
AUGUST 6 | FRANKLIN | 4PM - 9PM
Come out to meet the artist of Pen & Piper, Noelle Glaze!
The Pen + Piper is a photography studio and stationery line designed by stylist/photographer Noelle Glaze. Noelle regularly creates artistic visual imagery for food/product brands such as Harper Collins and Brown Cow Yogurt, but launched her own creative work in the form of a stationery line in 2019. Believing that beauty lies in the colors, textures, patterns, and shadows around us, and that it is meant to be shared, the collection is aimed at capturing and extending the artful everyday. Noelle styles and photographs each design, including thoughtful quotes by famous authors and thinkers, and shares them on the website, in partnership with boutiques across the U.S., via the P+P Post, a monthly card subscription, and on IG @thepenandpiper.
Guests can enjoy a free gift with purchase of The Pen & Piper products as well as snacks and refreshments with the artist.
