As anyone who knows me will confirm I am rarely early to anything (except work surprisingly). I tend to always think I can fit in one more thing before leaving the house. Or, despite my best intentions I become distracted and time runs away with me. That doesn’t mean I am necessarily late for anything it just means I often arrive at places a little breathless.
So true to form, the week after National Stationery Week ended, here I am a little breathless but nonetheless enthusiastically posting about stationery. Not that I am ever unenthusiastic about stationery. Its the weekend with shopping opportunities aplenty so let me introduce you to some of my favourite places to buy a little stationery pick me up should you be needing it.
I love Fox and Star and they are my go to place for planners and replenishing washi tape supplies. In fact I don’t think I have ever come across a better selection of washi tape. It’s always worth checking out the sale section, if your looking to replenish stocks.
I adore The Green Gables and have had lots of happy exchanges with Gabrielle the creator and founder when making purchases. I love a list and The Green Gables have a fab selection of notepads for lists. I am the proud owner of the weekly meal planner notepad and the My To Do List pad. I use both regularly. I am a big fan of this happy style of stationery and always look forward to the arrival of anything I have ordered.
Kikki.K is a more recent discovery. Kikki.k is Swedish, so very on trend if you are bothered by such things. It is also stylish, and covetable with some particualry lovely letter writing sets. I bought one in a sale when I was embarking on my month of letter writing earlier in the year. Apart from the online store if you want a more tactile experience they have a great store in Covent Garden
Abounding with pretty paper and stockists of the beautiful Rifle paper stationery. They also have a great blog with lots of suggestions for papery creative endeavours
Jocelyn at The Reading Residence is organising another stationery swap. For the small price of £5 you have the opportunity to share the stationery love and receive a surprise package of stationery in the post during the month of May. I have taken part on a couple of occasions previously and have just signed up to do so again. You can find all the details here. I know Jocelyn would love to hear from you.
Have a papery, stationery filled weekend X
