ABOUT PEI SIM
Besides being the owner of The Paper + Craft Pantry, Pei is an avid DIYer and crafter. She started The Paper + Craft Pantry to blend two of her favorite things, stationery and workshops!
Pei started out in the small business world almost 4 years ago as the designer and maker behind a small stationery brand in Houston, Texas. As she grew her business, she was able to identify that what she loved most about her business were all the people and fellow small businesses she got to work with.
With that intention in mind, she opened The Paper + Craft Pantry with the integrity to stock the shelves with quality and independently designed paper goods, and chooses to invite in only the very best instructors, who all also own their own businesses. She is also the editor of The Paper + Craft Pantry’s blog which focuses on DIY projects and The Small Business School series!
When not in the studio, Pei enjoys exploring Austin through its food scene, which she balances out with her love for working out at local fitness studios.
