Favorite Things: Chirps and Cheers

Good spirits and great stuff



Chirps and Cheers isn’t just cheerful because of the vibrant color scheme – its owners are probably the most exuberant yet calm people you will ever meet. This sounds like an exaggeration, but it’s completely true. Kropp and her daughter Sami Ready are at once positive, warm, smiling and ready to help you or let you browse ... whatever you need. Shop dog Olive is the same: She’s happy to let you pet her, but not needy and definitely laid back.

 


The first thing that comes to mind when entering this bright little store is “cheerful,” and that’s not because the word “Cheer” is in its name. It is, as aforementioned, on the small side – but it’s fully packed with great merchandise: every color of pen you could imagine, lavish wrapping paper, brightly colored journals, an array of greeting cards with the best quips and quotes … and that’s just naming a few highlights. When asked about how they decide what to carry in the store, Susan Kropp explains, “We focus on products that are functional, well-designed, high quality – and whether we love it and would use it ourselves. When it’s something we want to take home, we know it’s a winner.”
 

With their great personal service, love of Midtown and impeccable taste in all things stationery and way beyond, Chirps and Cheers is nothing short of a winner. Offering classes from calligraphy and watercolor painting to “Snail Mail Sunday” drawings, the fun doesn’t stop at regular business hours, either. You simply can’t enter this place without smiling and, I dare say, you’ll leave the same way.

Day Designer, $62.50 “The Day Designer is the ultimate agenda. Thoughtfully designed by local OKC gal Whitney English, we can’t get enough of this top-selling agenda for its detailed daily page, monthly calendar view, goal setting planning pages and adorable cover.” //  Studio Carta letter opener/ruler, $25, and scissors, $45 “ We believe a happy work space makes for more productive work, so cheers to a desk full of beautiful accessories.” // Gelly Roll pens, $2.15 “Whether you like to write in bright color or traditional black ink, with a fine or bold point, fountain pen, rollerball, ballpoint or marker, we have a pen for you. Come see, test and write on!” // The Sun print, $55 “It’s a snap to liven up a corner or make a fun gallery wall with these unique art prints from Banquet Workshop. The bold screen prints are signed and sized to fit Ikea frames. So easy!” //  Greeting cards, $5 to $5.50 “We love the wide assortment of cards that fill our shelves. We thoughtfully curate our collection from a wide variety of extremely talented designers. Each card is a mini work of art that can be sent for a special holiday or just because.”
 




Russell + Hazel 3 ring binder, $14.95, Page Dots hole reinforcements, $6, label clips, $10, gold binder clip set, $15.95 “Whether you’re heading back to school or not, the Russell + Hazel three-ring binder is the best for keeping all your papers in one place. The colored or patterned spine pairs well with the rugged Davey board front. Plus, the inside is dry erase, so you can make notes on the front and back covers. Good looking, functional and long-lasting make this binder a triple threat.”

Leuchtturm 1917 notebooks, small $17.95 or large $24.95, with Delfonics pen, $12 “The Leuchtturm 1917 journal is tops on our list because of the bold color options, numbered pages and front index. We have several sizes in plain, dot grid and ruled. This journal is a favorite with the bullet journaling community.” // Custom stationery, pricing on request “We love that personalized stationery doesn’t have to be an unattainable luxury with our in-house custom note option. Select your font, paper and envelope color, and within 48 hours you can have as few as eight custom notes. You even get to choose one of our many wrapping papers to line your envelope.” // Gift wrap, $4.50 to $6.50 a sheet “Two walls of luxury wallpaper make for a beautiful shop display, but what really makes us happy is that for as little as $4.50 - $6.50 you can walk away with a sheet to wrap gifts, cover books, make banners or fill a frame.”
