I think I first found The Queen’s Ink about five years ago. It’s found in historic Savage Mills (near Laurel, MD) which was a textile weaving mill for almost a hundred years. I love how the shop is set up, one open space with dividers that they have created with displays and their own supplies. I also love that it’s independent and has a lot of specialty stuff.

As their name might imply they are really into rubber stamps and have an enormous selection. Look at all of those!

Everything has a very dainty and cozy feel to it. Purple carpet, lots of natural light, and there’s even a couch! One of my favorite places in the store is the bookshelf full of ribbons.

Here’s some more areas of the store that are absolutely lovely.

They have a lot of wonderful tags and the way they display them is glorious! (And check out all of that glitter!)

Here’s what I bought on my most recent trip there.

Something else to know about The Queen’s Ink is the classes they offer! Last Spring I took an altered book workshop and it was really wonderful. I highly recommend it. They have a wide variety and even guest instructors. If you ever get the chance to pop into The Queen’s Ink then you definitely should!

Do you have any unique independent craft stores near you?
