Paradiso Insurance is proud to partner with The Inspiration Station, located right here in Stafford Springs. We love promoting local small businesses that really provide our community with quality goods and services, and The Inspiration Station does just that.
This local, small business has been thriving since 2002, when Debby Riendeau, a crafty mom of three, decided to share what she loved most. She found it frustrating that there were no specialty craft stores in the area that catered to her hobbies. The internet also seemed to fall short, as you can’t feel or touch the products to really understand their color, texture, and quality. This is an essential part of the shopping process for visual people like crafters. Opening The Inspiration Station solved these issues for Debby, as well as many other crafters! The business grew so fast that they had to move twice into larger buildings to accommodate the additional business. Since 2003, The Inspiration Station has been on 13 Furnace Ave. in Stafford Springs, a beautiful building that is over 100 years old Their services and product lines have also expanded over the years.
At The Inspiration Station, you can find everything to fulfill your arts and crafts needs. They specialize in beautiful scrapbook supplies, rubber stamps, and paper craft supplies and instructions.
