We have been regular visitors to The Paper Crane for almost 3 decades now. A visit to HMB is not complete until we pay a visit to this wonderful store. Even though we now live out of state, on our recent visit to Calif., we had to stop by here. The customer service is warm and welcoming. We always seem to find something to take home with us. It’s one of the best stores in the area so make it a point to stop by.
