Great news, all. The new owners of Presscraft Papers will be reopening the shop on 5/22/2010! They have been accepting orders through the website, www.gwenfrostic.com, for a little while, but now you will be able to visit Gwen's magical studio in person. I believe the owners are also planning a grand reopening party in June, but no details yet.

Another quick update:
The new owners have put up a message on www.gwenfrostic.com stating that they will be filling the orders that had been previously placed in the coming weeks! They are also hoping to reopen the shop in the very near future!
More details here.

It looks like the Lorenz's were able to buy the business back from Honor State Bank, which they then sold, but the bank still owns the building and land.
The best part- the new owners want to reopen and keep the business in Benzie county!

According to this article in the Traverse City Record Eagle, the bank that foreclosed on the shop is in contact with several possible buyers of the shop, all of whom are interested in re-opening the shop.

Here is a short update from IPR (Interlochen Public Radio)
It touches on why the shop was closed and raises the question of who owns the copyrights to Gwen's work.
I honestly don't know if the owners will be able to scrape up the cash by Friday, but if not, my sincere wish is that whoever does buy it will keep Gwen's legacy in mind and do her proud.
