Ever since I was a kid snatching up every sanrio notebook or notepad available, I have been obsessed with paper goods. Obsessed.
My stationery collection is extensive. I still have notebooks I purchased over 10 years ago. I went crazy in japan buying dozens of stationery sets at a time. I have more post its and tags than I know what to do with, a unique yearly planner every year since I can remember (except this and last year…maybe I’m slipping) and an armful of notebooks (mostly from Japan) that either lay empty or half written in. I can’t get enough of beautiful paper, but can you blame me?
These 5 paper goods shops are new to me and fast becoming my favourites. They make me want to shut off every single electronic device and get back to paper and pen instead.
I’m a paper loyalist. I will always choose a paperback over an e-reader, and I’ll always prefer to write out my to do lists rather than type them on the computer.
