London Stationery Show 2014

On Tuesday afternoon I went to visit the London Stationery Show at the Business Design Centre: It was really an event for buyers, rather than little ol’ bloggers like me so it was mainly sales talk and people with suits on.

Great ideas #1: Highlighter with a see through tip
