Although the term armlet may be technically similar, it is taken to mean an item that sits on the upper shoulder: The origin of the term 'bracelet' is from the Greek 'brachile' meaning 'of the arm', via the Old French 'bracel'. A bracelet is also a small brace or bracer an arm-guard used by archers.
Well, we were not always world famous or Texas sized. When our store first opened in San Marcos inwe focused on handmade items and antiques. Most items were from regional artists and craftsmen.
In fact, the store had a very strong focus on "artworks" that are made "from the Heart" -- thus the name: InSan Marcos was small community without many very large stores, and thus offerred a limited selection of locally available products.
As a result of this interaction with our customers, to the extent that we were able, we added a number of different products; and in doing so, we developed a very eclectic inventory of products.
As we kept adding different kinds of products, we kept using up store space. Because we retained the original store, and stocked this new space with a large selection of cards, stationary, journals, albums, and similar paper products, it became "Paper Bear".
We then relocated the original store to the new space and adopted our current name: Inwe again had the chance to increase our retail space by leasing the space occupied by the current store at North LBJ Drive. Over the years, our customer base has grown.
Many customers are former Texas State University students, or their family members, or their friends. Many have relocated all over the world; however, we are very fortunate that a large number of them find their way back to the store to shop, and that they often tell us that we are unlike most other stores that they frequent.
Thus, they suggested that we had become "world famous"! When the "Great Recession" developed a few years ago, we decided that we needed to "rightsize" the store so we consolidated it into our current operating space. Since survival often demands adaptation to new conditions, we adapted to these changes by changing our product "mix" to conform to what our customers most wanted, and by increasing our "unusual" products that are not easily found at more conventional "big box" stores.
This is clearly reflected in the product selection and value we offer today. We hope that you will visit us very soon. Some Of Our Products!Weaving with Paper Yarns, Paper Twines and Paper Strips. Holiday Cards (01) The Studio Elf – Gift-Wrapping.
