Hi there, I'm Sandra, the founder and owner of 128 Market Street Paper Co. Nice to meet you!

As a lifelong artist, I started selling custom wood paintings in 2015 to fuel my never-sleeping creative spirit and to fund my ever-growing stash of art supplies.  Every design started as a sketch or a small painting, and I soon realized that I loved the little pieces of work more than the large ones as they were perfectly suited for handwritten notes.

Inspired by my love of paper and the art of gift giving, I now illustrate greeting cards, get my hands (and workshop!) covered in sawdust from the scroll saw for large art pieces, and satisfy my creative side by tinkering with resin, polymer clay and jewelry making. 


I'm often asked what the name "128 Market Street" means, and it's so much more than a random choice of numbers and words.

I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC, Canada, and spent most of my time in, on, or around the water. I would one day love to live in a lake front home, or what I affectionally call a "lake house".

On the business end of things, the thought of opening a brick and mortar store makes my heart soar. As a child, I pretended to be a shopkeeper, and I designed and decorated small shops and invited my (sometimes imaginary) friends to come in and browse. To be a shopkeeper now would be a wonderful thing, and I hope to one day open a little artisan coffee shop, fill it with handcrafted items and create an environment that people will simply want to be in.

The letter L is for "lake", and is number 12 in the alphabet.

The letter H is for "house", and is number 8 in the alphabet.

And Market Street? Well, I envision my little shop being on a street full of market-style storefronts where you would go not only for shopping, but for the experience of being in a place filled with creativity, beauty and peace.

It is these things that I've based my brand on.

128 Market Street Paper Co. is adventurous and charming. It is filled with lots of shiplap, old brick, reclaimed wood and beautiful things.

Oh, and a dog. There must always be a dog.
