  • Rock Paper Taylor

    It's time again to meet another fantastic Rock Paper Scissors team member - Taylor! 13482934_1225460187464608_6107666105432258502_o

    1) Where are you from? Goodrich, MI

    2) Why did you want to work at Rock Paper Scissors and why do you love working here? I wanted to work at RPS because I loved the store's unique style. I love when I walk into a place and can instantly find the perfect gifts - stationery, MI pencils, perfume, cocktail mixer - for my friends and family. I have so much pride being a part of the RPS team because I'm always hearing from people in Ann Arbor that RPS is their go to shop! Plus, I get a kick out of helping people find their perfect gift or home accessory. 3) What’s your favorite card in the store and why?  "Hold me closer tiny donuts" is my favorite card. I'm a fan of Elton John as well as donuts in any variety so this card is a win-win for me.


    4) What’s your favorite gift in the store and why? My favorite gift in the store is the Rifle Paper Company stationery. Stationery is a perfect gift for any number of occasions - new job, new home, just married, starting school - you name it! Plus, RPC always has really beautiful unique prints and quality paper.

    5) Besides RPS what’s your favorite local Ann Arbor business and why? After RPS, my favorite store in A2 is Literati hands down. Even with computers/phones being so accessible, there's just something really satisfying about turning a page of a book. I could spend hours digging around in their shelves. Come to think of it, I'm sure I have...

    6) Is there anything ridiculous you want the people of Ann Arbor to know? I don't know how ridiculous this is, but I'm training for the Detroit marathon this October. It'll be my first marathon and I can't wait!   In addition to being an Elton John fan and running A LOT, Taylor also happens to be a master builder. Check back later this week to find out what architectural masterpiece Taylor has built at RPS.

  • RPS Ann Arbor- We're Hiring!

  • Hey Ann Arbor & Detroit, We're HIRING!

  • Siena

    MEET SIENA siena Siena is your average West Coast transplant who somehow found herself in the middle of seasonal weather and Big 10 football. She stumbled upon Rock Paper Scissors on one of the aforementioned “cold” days (it was October) only to immediately shatter a porcelain dish. A few emails and an interview later and Siena quickly became the go-to gal on the RPS team for all things food. When she is not writing love letters to her favorite Ann Arbor food establishments, she can be found in her floral robe, tending to her dying succulents or cooking with too many Indian spices (still in the robe). She also spends her time sweating profusely in yoga and getting far too excited about the latest shipment of Linnea’s Lights candles.

  • Brenna

    MEET BRENNA I am the least graceful person you have ever met—both physically and in conversation—but that doesn’t stop me from talking or walking! (Although the concussions have slowed me down a bit.) I grew up in Ann Arbor and have always been a devout townie; I love everything about this place and the hustle and bustle of its downtown area. Being unable to escape the clutches of Ann Arbor, I attended school at Michigan and will be sticking around to work and enjoy a homework-free life for a while! This includes taking care of my immature dog, being a weekend warrior (and part-time blogger) atRock Paper Scissors, and trying to keep up with family and friends! I have to admit, life is pretty fun!! brenna

  • Mary

    MEET MARY   mary Unanimously voted (by herself) as Most Likely To Make It Weird, Mary is most often seen behind the counter or obsessing over the well-being of the bathtub-bound Bla-Bla critters (THEY CAN'T SWIM, GUYS!). With a Creative Writing degree from Michigan State, odds are good that at any given moment Mary's writing something in her head. Along with her fiancé's MightyMitten art prints and the perpetually burning scented candles, Mary's favorite part of working at Rock Paper Scissors is talking to customers about their lives and travels. An avid people-watcher, Mary likes to blog about the myriad reactions to the unapologetic quirkiness of Rock Paper Scissors.
