Present & Correct Haul

It makes me very happy to type those words… Present & Correct Haul! Despite the fact that I bang on about this shop allll the time, I’ve never really done a haul as such. I’ve bought the odd thing or been bought presents from there but never done a proper spree before. Until now! On… Read more »

Shop Visit + Haul: Choosing Keeping

Choosing Keeping is located on East London’s (famous for its flower market) Columbia Road. It’s been around a few years but until a couple of weeks ago, I somehow hadn’t made it inside (probably because I’m usually on Columbia Road during the flower market and it’s so hectic that I just get my flowers and… Read more »

Selfridges: Basic Needs Store and Hay Mini Market

On a shoe shopping trip to Selfridges last weekend (alas, for my boyfriend, not me…), we discovered two pretty cool new stationery sections in the shop; the Hay Mini Market, and the Basics Needs Store. The Hay Mini Market teams gorgeously designed Hay products with other complimentary items (I was looking at the stationery section,… Read more »

Shop Visit: RSVP Berlin (No. 2)

When I went to the original RSVP shop in Berlin in November, they were just that day opening a new shop across the street. It wasn’t opening until later that evening, and although they invited us to pop into the opening, we had plans with friends so couldn’t make it. Although I could see through… Read more »


Harry from Frology got in touch with me recently to draw my attention to his website. I thought he has such a good story that I just had to share! 16 year old Harry decided to start his own brand a couple of years ago and has since launched his own website selling selected items… Read more »

New Shop Find: Youse

This is a recent instagram find of mine: Youse. They only opened their online store a week ago, but they’re already smashing it, with vintage stationery items like these: So nice right?! And really reasonable too! Check out the rest of the stationery in their “found” section. They also sell lovely pouches in their “made”… Read more »

Shop Visit: Luiban Papeterie, Berlin

This was one of the shops I was looking forward to visiting the most in Berlin, and it didn’t disappoint. Located in the Mitte area, Luiban Papeterie is a neat and quiet shop with a great selection of stationery. My favourite thing in the shop was this brilliant way of displaying envelopes (left). It’s a… Read more »

Shop Visit: R.S.V.P. Berlin

I recently made a trip to Berlin to visit a friend, and of course do a stationery shop tour! The first shop I visited was R.S.V.P. in Mitte. It’s a tiny store but really cleverly designed with loads of neat shelves, floor to ceiling. It’s also VERY neat, which I appreciate greatly. They stock loads… Read more »

Shop Visit: Au Petit Bonheur la Chance, Paris

OH. MY. GOD. If you like vintage stationery, Au Petit Bonheur la Chance is pretty much the best place in the world. It’s stacked floor to ceiling with vintage homewares and stationery and is BRILLIANT. This is going to be a bit of a picture-heavy post, because in writing this I’m finding it hard to describe… Read more »

Shop Visit: Merci, Paris

The next of my Paris shop visits is Merci. It’s a kind of super cool mini-department store I suppose; with clothing, homewares, stationery and a bookshop/cafe. It was a bit of a fleeting visit, and so I didn’t get to buy anything but it’s definitely somewhere I’d recommend visiting as it has a lovely collection,… Read more »
