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 beautiful, creative space for shopping, gifting, and making, the shop was opened in October 2015.

Not only a gift shop, it is also home to the design 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, prepare to be welcomed into a 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 happy moment or two.
