Anne Kellogg, owner of the hip stationery store Las Vegas Paper Doll, announced that she will be closing it on Feb. 29 to become marketing and public relations manager for the Las Vegas Art Museum.
The closing of the store, located at the Holsum Design Center on West Charleston Boulevard, is a loss for valley residents looking for an alternative to chain stores and banal greeting cards.
The Las Vegas native opened Las Vegas Paper Doll in 2002 after LaPour Partners renovated the Holsum Bread Factory and sought culture-minded tenants. The store carries unique and high-end greeting cards and stationery by Pancake & Franks, Saturate and R. Nichols, among others. Kellogg also stocks the shelves with T-shirts, post cards, literature and designs by Las Vegas artists.
The Las Vegas Art Museum, which opens exhibits by Paul Morrison and Victoria Gitman next week, plans to move from its current location on West Sahara Avenue to a larger and more accessible location on Sunset Road in 2009.
Kellogg says that she will continue the store online, but the presence of the boutique and Kellogg's dog Luna, who was often at the store, will definitely be missed.
