About Us


Local Wisdom Cards features original collage art by Kathleen Sawyer, done the old fashioned way with a closet full of found elements, loose ends of paper, and a creative imagination. 

about-us-small.jpgLocal Wisdom Cards is run by Kate & Jamie out of their shop, Roost & Company, in downtown Salem, Massachusetts. Local Wisdom Cards was one of the first lines they carried at Roost & Company, when they opened in 2009, and served as an inspiration to the tone and semblance of their store.

In 2013, Kathleen, the original owner and artist of Local Wisdom Cards, announced her retirement and entrusted her combination of imaginative folk art and timeless quotes to the young couple to be carried on and shared with others.  Kate  & Jamie remain dedicated to the art and the spirit of Local Wisdom Cards.

Local Wisdom Cards and envelopes are printed on 100% FSC post-consumer recycled fiber and packaged in eco-friendly, compostable clear sleeves made from plants.

All of our cards are suitable for framing or simply shared.  Enjoy.
