About Us Paper Trail was founded in 2005 by Serine Hastings and Maureen Missner, two women with a passion for paper and a desire to bring high quality stationery and stylish accessories and gifts to the historic Hudson Valley village of Rhinebeck. Serine and Maureen’s friendship began many years ago, when both worked for Crate & Barrel in Chicago. Some years later, each had moved to New York, and were mentored in their careers by two giants of the home design world, Terence Conran and Angelo Donghia. Serine and Maureen have created a colorful, inviting shop — and an online business – that offer a carefully curated selection of paper goods, jewelry, home accessories and gifts that reflect their personal taste and style. Their commitment to friendly, personal service and exciting visual presentation makes Paper Trail a favorite destination for area residents and tourists.
