Creative, colorful, and fun, Love of Character is a shop that we are doing a happy dance about! They’re a new custom partner of ours, located in Wichita, Kansas and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome them onboard.
The Dockum Building with it’s unique architectural character is the perfect place for this sweet little party shop. Beautiful light pours into the Love of Character due to the large corner windows, which are decorated with brightly colored paper flowers. Displays are full of artful gifts in an array of playful colors. There’s an accent wall of tangerine colored wallpaper, and a large white checkout desk with pretty little details all around.
On top of their obvious eye for design, Love of Character also has a passion for event planning - so much so that they’ve created a lovely event space in the boutique available for all types of parties. Take a peek at their Instagram to see all the whimsical balloon garlands and pretty table scapes that they’ve created for their customers (our favorite is this space themed birthday party). Everything that Love of Character does is fresh, inspired, and unique.
Owner Mary Elizabeth shared more about their sweet boutique + event space:
Love of Character actually started as a side project with my aunt as a creative outlet. I was working in the corporate world, and slowly built up my business through a website and Etsy shop. My aunt and I attended the National Stationery Show four years ago, and found some brands to add to the shop. From there I slowly began to build our inventory and after a couple of local shopping events, decided to find a brick and mortar location. A great neighborhood shop came up and it was perfect! I took the plunge and opened up my little shop. Eventually I quit my corporate job and went fulltime. We have an event space in the back half of the shop, and retail in the front.
Love of Character carries our DUET collection, so they can create invitations to perfectly fit their events and thank you notes for after the party. We’re thrilled to have Love of Character as a partner and we can’t wait to see what their team creates for their local Wichita, Kansas customers.
