I want to throw a Fourth of July party — it must happen! But I also want to have superb invitations, something that will get people to RSVP without hesitation (not an easy feat). Enter Carmody & Co. (www.carmodynco.com), the best paper goods store I have had the pleasure of visiting. Readers may know that I recently wrote about this place, highlighting the great prices and wide selection of merchandise. The staff are extremely personable and the location – Carmody & Co. is in the heart of Old Pasadena – is a welcome respite from all the congestion here on the westside of Los Angeles. Take a drive out there — it’s worth the trip!
