Do you ever miss the days of handwritten thank you cards, love letters, or a simple “thinking of you” note for a friend? The recently-opened “urban stationery boutique,” Mac & Murphy on Cannon Street is bringing back this traditional way of communicating. The SoHo/Charleston-styled shop offers a wide selection of cards, invitations, and stationery by designers like Linda and Harriett, SusyJack, and R. Nichols. Owners Liz Macpherson and Ami Murphy offer in-house design, layout, and printing on invitations for all occasions. Our favorite feature of the shop is the quaint garden out back, where customers can write their cards, seal them, then place them in the mailbox. Mac & Murphy will take care of the rest. The place is easy to miss as you’re speeding down Cannon, but it’s on the left, just a few buildings before you get to Sugar Bakeshop. Call them at (843) 576-4394 or just stop by! –Anna Linesch
