Today we’d like to introduce you to Cedar and Megan Watson.
Hi Cedar and Megan, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
We’re twins, owners of Paper Goat Post. With 20+ years of combined event industry experience, we wanted to merge our love of events with our paper loving roots to create a shop experience that we could share with Orlando and beyond. It has always been our dream to create a space where we could cultivate a love for paper + party. We truly believe there is something to celebrate every day (with a little or a lot of paper). Through our brand, we strive to promote togetherness through our PGP philosophies… the lost art of snail mail, gathering in celebration and the thoughtful art of giving.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Being small business owners & running a brick and mortar shop brings along day to day obstacles but hitting our five years milestone of operation during a global pandemic really takes the cake when it comes to challenges. Our PGP philosophies are the lost art of snail mail, gathering in celebration, and the thoughtful art of giving. During this time, when we’re asked not to gather we found the need to shift our approach. We’ve been creatively trying to figure out & implement new ways to serve our customers that are still centered around our core philosophies. We’ve introduced surprise Balloon Drops along with delivery options for all of our partyware + balloon bar items. It’s been so fun watching our customer’s excitement when they receive balloons delivered to their door. We’re a firm believer that celebrating has NOT been canceled! We are here to help to make sure no celebration is missed. Now more than ever, the lost art of snail mail is so very important! We continue to serve our community as your personal card concierges … handwriting cards for people & sending card bundles out. Snail mail is a simple & easy way to connect with others and really brightens someone’s day.
