330 East Blvd Charlotte NC 28203


Paper Skyscraper is more than a store. Paper Skyscraper is an environment designed to surprise and delight. It is a gathering place for Charlotte’s creative community, and is a comfortable, friendly space where you are likely to leave with a bag of goodies and guaranteed to leave with a smile.

In April 2019, this beloved Dilworth fixture changed ownership, from founders, Tim Hamilton and Ron Wootten, to native Charlotteans, Sybil and Bill Godwin. Located on East Blvd and Euclid Ave., Paper Skyscraper opened as a tiny shop selling architecture books 30 years ago, and has since grown into a 5000-square-foot gift shop offering a carefully-selected assortment of books, one-of-a-kind gifts, candles, games, greeting cards, and more. Paper Skyscraper is consistently voted a top retail destination in Charlotte – Yelp recently rated it the US’s #1 local shop for finding the perfect holiday gift.

Tim and Ron have curated a gift selection that offers something for every occasion. They will remain in the business as consultants as they hand off the day to day operation of the store to the Godwins. Art purveyor Sybil Godwin also owns nearby Myers Park Shain Gallery on Selwyn Avenue. “Through my 15 years in art gallery experience, I have developed not only an eye for what sells, but also an eye for talent,” says Sybil, one of the youngest gallery owners in Charlotte.

According to her husband Bill Godwin, who has a background in retail and financial relationship management: “The opportunity to own and operate another Charlotte retail establishment has been a dream of ours, and we could not be more thrilled for it to be Paper Skyscraper.

Paper Skyscraper is more than a store. It’s an experience, destination, and gathering place for Charlotte’s creative community – somewhere you bring out-of-towners to show what Charlotte has to offer.
