Having spoken about my trip to their H.Q in Florida last year, I may have indulged a little in my fleeting visit to NY earlier this year...
Flying home with me came a selection of postcards just asking to be framed and adorning the house I am yet to own. Excitedly I also bought some sheets of printed gift wrap much to my parents amusement, which I also plan to frame! The calendar was a sweet birthday gift from my work friends, but I dare say another calendar also made it home with me from NY too. Next on my Rifle Paper Co list are more city prints - I may as well spray paint my future home with Rifle, thank goodness they sell wallpaper eh?
Enough ramble, here are a few stationary shops worth writing home about are:
- Paper Source, NY. A calm amongst the bustling streets of Lower Manhattan, I spent a good hour looking through their range of cards and stationary. A fabulous section on crafting, it was hard to return home with a suitcase full.
- Posman Books, NY. The most wonderful bookshop I stumbled across in the Chelsea Market, they have an excellent range of hand-picked titles - admittedly I found a great deal of gifts for people! Not to be missed are their extensive number of notebooks, heaven.
- Quill, online. My go-to for Kate Spade stationary and just about everything stylish in correspondence. I'm shouting loudly about Quill, and so should you.
- Liberty, London. Getting lost in the stationary hall is my favourite thing to do in the Liberty department store. It's so British it's wonderful.
Tell me, what other stationary shops should I visit?
