Striped Paper Straws from Urbanic

I’ve been on the hunt for striped paper straws for quite some time, but have had a hard time finding an online retailer that offered them and didn’t charge an arm and a leg for shipping. ($9.99 for shipping for a $3 box of straws? Seriously?) Just when I was thinking I might be out of luck the lovely Audrey of Urbanic, a fabulous paper boutique in Venice, California, posted about having paper straws in the store on the Urbanic blog, Parcel Post. A quick email and a simple PayPal transaction later and Audrey had the straws headed my way. I love them so much I just had to share a few photos. How adorable is the packaging? I love receiving simple items wrapped beautifully so this little package made my day when it arrived. A big thank you to Audrey for her willingness to ship to NY so I could have striped paper straws of my very own!

Hi! I just find my way over here. I was wondering if you have found an even better retail for the straws now or if you still buy them from Urbanic? Cause I love them too, very much. :)
