Having grown up in the family's successful office and stationery business it was only natural that Barb would eventually be a retailer herself. In 1991 it was time to become owner of the long established Gift Shop "Classic Cards" in downtown Chilliwack, which had been in business since 1978.
Having kept up with the trends of the card, gift and specialty paper products industry, in the fall of 1997, the moment was right to expand into the scrapbooking market. Selling rubber stamps and cake decorating supplies for a number of years prior to '97 Barb was not new to the craft industry, so scrapbooking seemed a perfect addition to the store.
In 2002 an opportunity came up to expand again and the business moved to the Alexander location (the original Coast Office building). Classic offers card making & scrapbooking classes, custom wedding invitations and beautiful quality gifts and jewelry.
Barb enjoys yoga, golfing and of course shopping, personally as well as purchasing some of the most fabulous inventory available in the Paper Crafting Industry.
Pauline has been a part of the Classic creative team for several years! Being an accomplished and patient instructor, she shares her love of stamping with great enjoyment! Pauline spends her winters in Arizona where she has a great time finding current techniques and trends in the papercraft industry. We always look forward to the spring when she comes back to share her new found knowledge from South of the Border!
Sherry joined us from the original gift shop in 2009 and since moving over to the Scrapbooking store Sherry's creativity has flourished! Being our resident non-scrapbooking scrapbooker, Sherry is excited to share her Project 365 expertise.
Steph is the newest member to join our team. After working with kids for the past several years at Chilliwack Community Arts Council, she's decided to expand her horizons and has begun working and creating with adults.
Steph's interests started in textiles, embroidery and crochet and have since grown to include papercrafts, cardmaking and scrapbooking. She gets especially giddy around Christmas, where she is a legend at making gifts and custom handmade ornaments.
