Our Story


Merrily Paper was founded by artist and illustrator Kat Parrella. Born out of a love of paper and people, and with a desire to create a relaxing space for shopping, gifting, and designing, the shop was opened in October 2015.

Not only a gift shop, it is also home to the creative studio of the Merrily Paper brand of greeting cards and products. Funny, loving, sweet, or sassy - there's something for everyone in the fun style that Kat creates.

In our lovely 200-year old cottage in the heart of Sugar Loaf, New York, we welcome you to our light and peaceful space full of cards, gifts, art, home decor and treasures that are each carefully and thoughtfully selected by Kat.

At Merrily you'll find a space that is a treat for all your senses, where we encourage you to relax, laugh, and share a merry moment or two.
