Had to buy a new notebook form the train station yesterday, all they had were lined I only like plain, graph or dots. What a horrible waste of £6 it felt like - though I do like those ones where the paper is slightly grey but the lines are white so when you write on them they seem to disappear
When I went to Japan I was staying right next to the Travelers shop, which I didn’t know ahead of time. OMG, I got so many nice notebooks, and tape. Nothing online that I’m particularly fussed about tbh, but the shop itself was so good. I think there was a little letter writing section for customers too and you could post from there - I might have made this bit up
I love stationery!! my 13th birthday was spent going to music in Central London to spend all my birthday money and my 8th birthday was on holiday in Wales and I was told to choose any toy and I chose a crayola stationery kit, a true lifelong love. Muji is still my go to, I love the minimal, clean styles you get with Japanese stationery. As for organising, big fan of the Scandinavian style wooden organising stuff, and I love anything made with rattan too because it reminds me of Somali basket weaving. The woven baskets/wooden containers look really nice together too. I like white wire baskets too, they look so neat
Yes, there’s a shop in Asakusa where I bought the dreamiest paper I’ve ever seen (which I remember using to write to lots of disers when there was a bit of a penpal thing going on in the old boards). I went back about 10 years later hoping they’d have that exact design, of course they didn’t, but I think I still bought lots and lots of others. Love a letter writing set!
I follow this on twitter. Might have to visit next time I’m in that London.
I’m generally too much of a skinflint to buy nice stationery but makes for nice presents and nice to dream about if money was less of an issue. I really like muji stuff actually, miss not having a muji where I live.
Forgot about this thread! No suggestions at this precise moment but I will keep a beady eye out. Love me some stationery. Bought myself a wall planner and going to get me some stickers to help with healthy eating/exercise/mark when new horror films come out.
Just started ating a load of DiSers who I thought could help but then started getting paranoid I’d miss someone out
I feel like the teachers of DiS should have this kind of thing dooown!
