About Us

ØSTMOE is a provisioner of meticulously curated, premium paper goods, stationery, and gifts from around the globe by owner Kristine Ostmoe Lynch of Bainbridge Island, WA, who is also the chief creative officer of ØSTMOE STUDIO, an independent design firm. Whether you are commissioning her for a custom design project or shopping ØSTMOE’s fine selection of products, she is committed to providing a superior customer experience.



"Paper nerds may recognize [Kristine] as the owner of Flourish, a beloved stationery store in Wallingford from 2001–2006 and Phinney Ridge from 2013–2014. She opened ØSTMOE in January, after a whirlwind few months: In October, the graphic and interior designer and serial entrepreneur had seen a “For Rent” sign in the window of a narrow space she’d coveted for years. She signed the rental agreement soon after, transforming the former architect’s office into a picture-perfect display for her grown-up collection of ephemera."

"Welcome ØSTMOE, Bainbridge’s Darling Paper Goods Shop"

"Tucked into a pocket-sized storefront just off Bainbridge’s main street, ØSTMOE is a treasure trove of stationery, fine papers and office supplies, lovingly curated... A graphic designer by trade, [Kristine] sources locally-made letterpress and bespoke stationery, as well as pens and writing supplies from Japan and England."
