Twelve months ago we introduced Papier and Co. to the Gold Coast. Redefining newsagencies, Papier & Co. took a giant leap from the traditional newsagent to a lifestyle store complete with chandeliers.


Maintaining a selection of the traditional newsagency items such as magazines, newspapers and lottery; Papier & Co. are specialists in sourcing unique gifts and toys not found anywhere else on the Gold Coast. On the eve of their 12 month anniversary they are now opening their doors again with an online store launching early November. Initially showcasing their core ranges watch as this store grows to include their extensive gift and toy range. The store makes shopping easy as unlike other online stores www.papierandco.com.au will cover all ages and tastes. Whether it’s goodies from Crabtree & Evelyn for Mum, a quirky desk accessory for Dad or filling Santa’s wish list the store has everybody covered in the one place.


Local to the Gold Coast, owner and mother of three young children Stacey McEwen was frustrated with the lack of offering on the northern Gold Coast. With an eye for detail and quality, not to mention three fantastic product testers, Stacey has spent the last twelve months refining the Papier & Co. range and sourcing items from around the nation and internationally. Whether it be aromatherapy bath salts made by hand in the spa capital of Australia, Daylesford, a replica World War II compass or wooden toys by Le Toy Van to last a generation each and every item is selected personally to ensure quality.
