WHAT WE LOVE
Vintage cabinets and fittings beautifully display a range of traditional and timeless stationery goods at Paper and Grace. Located in Bozeman's historic Cannery District (known for supplying the nation with canned peas a century ago), Paper and Grace was established in 2007 and since 2014 has been owned by Jill Redmon. Together with her brother, Cody Redmon, who mans the shop, the siblings have created a wonderful stationery shop that transcends Jill's passion for beauty and thoughtful design.
"The importance of the shopping experience is not possible without a team that is passionate for what they do. As a service-oriented retail business, there is no greater joy as a business owner than to work alongside amazing people who enjoy their work and make it their goal each day to serve our customers with kindness and knowledge."
ABOUT THE SHOP
Paper and Grace is located in Bozeman’s Historic Cannery District. More than a century ago, The Bozeman Canning Company supplied more than 75% of the nation’s pea supply. Now called The Cannery District, it is comprised of original buildings and new structures designed with the history of the district in mind.
What makes Paper and Grace so unique? Paper and Grace helps keep traditional stationery alive in the modern era. We lean on timeless classics rather than passing trends.
Is there a story behind the shop name? While the name came with the business when it was acquired, we felt strongly about keeping it because it perfectly conveys the combination of traditional stationery goods paired with the shopping experience and environment. Customers often convey their joy at visiting our store to take in and soak up the space we’ve created. One of our favorite comments was, “This store is more Zen than yoga.”
What are Paper and Grace's "must-have” products? European & Japanese correspondence stationery, handmade Japanese clocks, John Derian decoupage, both fine and fun writing instruments, Traveler’s series notebooks, inserts & accessories.

ABOUT THE SHOPKEEPERS
What inspired you to open Paper and Grace? We are inspired by shops of times past and the relationships shopkeepers built with customers. In a time where people are continually on the run, we aspire to be a shop that lends itself to a friendly, helpful, and inspirational environment, where our customers find the products to improve daily living.
Before we were shopkeepers, we... Many years ago I was a milliner. In 1996 I had the opportunity to open Montana Party Rentals, along with two business partners, one of which is my oldest brother, Troy. I’m still very much involved in the event business and rely heavily on my younger brother, Cody, who is the Shopkeeper at Paper and Grace. I grew up in a family business and continuing my career with family brings me much joy.
How has the pandemic changed your POV on the future of retail? It reinforced our belief in the importance of strong and genuine customer relationships, vendor partnerships and quality products that stand the test of time. Winds can be strong, but community is stronger.
WHAT THE SHOPKEEPERS LOVE
ON THE FUTURE OF RETAIL
"While we recognize online shopping has its place in retail, the in-person experience is more appreciated now than ever. We find our customers are seeking an in-store experience where they can test pens, feel paper, and have an authentic experience."
