Character is what makes a person unique, a home a home and a gift memorable. Character is what makes a party festive and a table setting colorful.
Love of Character is paper goods & party supplies shop based in Kansas. In the shop you can find creative work by Mary, her Aunt Mary and some of her favorite finds perfect for gift giving and parties. For the Love of Character blog started in 2013 as Mary and her husband, Dustin, started working on home improvements in their old house. The name came from their love of character when searching for the "perfect" house to start their life together. It was the little touches such as the staircase, crown molding and wood work that sold them on it. Sharing ideas on decorating, party throwing and gifts, Mary realized she wanted to help others add some character to their lives. Mary reached out to her fabulous Aunt Mary to get the business going. The next step was heading off to market to search for the character filled paper goods and party supplies that fill our site!
Stop by our little corner 3200 East Douglas Ave. in Wichita, KS.
To learn more about Mary, Dustin and their little dog, Teddy, check out For the Love of Character blog! There you can find ideas on DIY projects, home improvements, decorating and hosting.
In this shop, we believe that a life full of character is a life well lived. Our commitment is to add Character to your parties, gifts and life! Please let us know if we can do anything to assist you and make your experience fulfilling.

Faith is a born and raised Wichitan, and has a deep passion for the ICT. Having attended Wichita State University during the days of Gregg Marshall, she is a giant basketball fan. While in college, she studied marketing and communication, and, like her good friends Lorelai and Rory, became a coffee addict. This has led to caramel lattes and Pantone coffee mugs becoming her kryptonite. Also a love? Big dogs. she has two Goldendoodles. She is what some would call a color nerd--the Sugar and Cloth Color Wall in Houston is on her bucket list of locations to shoot portraits. Faith loves to travel and hopes to visit as many places as possible in a lifetime. Those who know her know that she's always looking for an excuse to hop on a plane and explore a new city for a little bit. She is always saving money for her next big adventure; however, she makes due by exploring Wichita in between escapades. It's been 22 years in the same city, yet it still finds ways to surprise her.
