The Cordial Cricket , a new stationery shop in Chester, hosts holiday shopping with a community-minded twist, providing a 10 percent discount on your entire purchase when you make a donation to the Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Christmas Mother program through Dec. 7.
"We want to ongoingly support community projects," says Elizabeth Howard, the shop's owner, noting that the program supplies Christmas presents (clothes, food and other gifts) to needy children, families and the elderly.
Although the shop carries a range of gifts and paper goods — including Kate Spade, Crane & Co. and wedding-invitation services — its specialty is personalized stationery. In addition, last-minute holiday party invitations can be designed and printed.
