Cartolina is an inspiring world of curiously unique product and design. Our historic location, in a former 1890s miner’s hotel in Nelson BC, houses our flagship retail store and our wholesale stationery company.
Shop in store or online - we ship right across North America!
Built in 1894, the west portion of the Tremont Hotel went through many lives until we acquired the building in 2014. Situated among a collection of beautifully restored heritage buildings on Nelson's Baker Street, the building is a fine example of 1890s architecture - brick construction, stacked cornices, fine masonry detail, pressed tin ceilings and original wood floors.
The Cartolina store is a one of a kind retail experience. Offering a beautiful selection of paper goods, gifts, personal accessories and home accents. The truly inspiring interior creates a lovely environment to shop or to browse. The Cartolina store is a curious mix of vintage inspired paper goods, gifts and accessories.
Not only do we carry a large selection of our own Cartolina stationery, but we also stock a nice mix from other paper product companies from around the world. Other categories we carry include soap, candles, perfumes and lotions. Accessories such as leather bags and jewelry are very popular, as is our growing collection of men's shaving gear and fragrances. Our map department houses one of the largest selections of vintage maps in BC - originals and reproductions. From large school maps, to small poster size maps, there's something for everyone. Cartolina has become a destination for tourists looking for local and Canadiana gifts including vintage postcards, notebooks, coasters and prints.
