About Us

Cartolina is an inspiring world of curiously unique product and design. Our historic location, in a former 1890s miner’s hotel in Nelson BC, houses our flagship retail store, our wholesale stationery company and the Tremont Loft - luxury tourist accommodation.

Situated among a collection of beautifully restored heritage buildings on Nelson's Baker Street, the building is a fine example of 1890s architecture - brick construction, stacked cornices, fine masonry detail, pressed tin ceilings and original wood floors.
