This adorable family business is anything but a mistake.

Having just opened in Stillwater in April, Typo Market, located at 123 E 9th Ave., is a one-stop shop for your gift giving necessities this holiday season. With an abundance of paper goods, candles, apothecary items and more, you will have your holiday shopping list all checked off.
Susan Hartford owns the store with her three daughters Jessica Sutton, Shelby Howerton and Katie Barlow.
Hartford says her desk is covered in stationary and decorative paper sold at the store, her favorite thing they sell. “When we decided to open a business, we knew we wanted to do paper goods,” she says.
The store originally opened in June 2016 in Newnan, Georgia. It was moved to Stillwater when Sutton decided to move back home to Oklahoma to raise her family.
“Stillwater has really reacted in a good way,” Hartford says, “I want it to be a place where people can come and feel part of the community, where we know all of our customers and we can talk about our lives and feel like it is a place we belong.”
Hartford, who is an OSU graduate, says they try to buy locally, “...we have a couple of vendors that are from Stillwater.” The store carries Stillwater-based brands such as Fresh!, Card Co. and Scent-sible.
“We try to have things no one else has in town…and keep our price point affordable," Hartford says. So if you're looking to shop local while staying within budget, check out Typo Market the next time you're downtown!
