Located in the historic Webster Groves neighborhood of St. Louis, Chris Schwartz and her sister (and best friend) Sharon Wisely are the co-owners of Red Lead. They have everything your mixed-media heart desires: from papers to stamps, trinkets, brads, buttons, and charms, fabric, ribbons and art supplies!

I love Red Lead PaperWorks and wanted to share this gem of a store with you During my most recent visit, Chris was in the studio teaching visitors to create vintage-style Valentine cards! There was freshly brewed Starbucks, and Sharon's famous homemade banana-walnut-chocolate cookies! Yum! The store itself is a visual delight...like a lovely collage in itself! Besides all these visual delights, Chris and Sharon frequently offer creative workshops, too. My favorite was Chris' Metal Stamping Workshop where I learned a ton! If you are ever in or near the St. Louis area, you should definitely stop by this store! Even if you don't live in St. Louis, you can shop Red Lead 24/7 at their website by clicking here. I enjoy following their creative blog here, too! Thank you Chris and Sharon for owning such a unique and inspiring store! Hope everyone has a great beginning to their week! Mary
