Runaway Joins the 2015 Northwest Paper Chase — March 13-29

The Paper Chase is a very cool event that brings together mixed media and paper crafters and stores from throughout Oregon and Washington. Runaway is very excited to be one of the 2015 participants! And we hope all our Runaway friends will make us your home store as you explore the broader Northwest paper-crafting scene.

The way it works is that you “run away” to your local participating store (subtle hint, there) and pick up your passport for just $10. You then travel the region to collect pages to create your own mini album to showcase the many destinations you visited.

The theme for the 2015 Northwest Paper Chase is games.  And each participating store offers its own unique take on the theme. Here at Runaway our theme is “Chess” — turns out Edgar Allan Crow loves the game, and who can argue with our mascot!

Each participant receives a passport booklet, a charm bracelet, and your first charm from Northwest Paper Chase (we are assured that this is a “must have” — and there is no other way to get it). You also receive a 20% discount on regular price purchases at each of the participating stores during the event. And, while you’re there, you can participate in each store’s promotional event (based on the individual store theme) — which will include a make-and-take (free with a purchase of $10 — after discounts have been applied and before any tax) and a charm (free with a purchase of $20 — again, post-discount and pre-tax– Runaway’s is custom made and not available anywhere else).

You can get more information at Runaway, in addition to your passport. And you can check out the Northwest Paper Chase website at
