WANT LIST: Smythson Pocket Notebook

I’m starting a new series, the WANT LIST. My problem at the moment is that I keep buying all the stationery things I want, rather than just covet them. So in the interest of not being bankrupt, I will be posting about lovely things I have seen but don’t necessarily NEED to own.

So, my first one is a Smythson Pocket Notebook:

I walked home today (4 miles in a very tight pencil skirt, in 25 degrees…), through London City, with it’s luxury shops, and it was the Smythson shop caught my eye.

Their pocket notebooks really are a thing of simplistic beauty, with their leather covers and lightweight paper.

Some of them have embossed titles, such as ‘Blondes, Brunettes, and Redheads’, ‘Dare to Dream’, and ‘The Boss’, but I prefer to keep it simple, either plain, or ‘Notes’ are the classiest ones I think.


Anyway, after seeing the price – £45!!!!! – I think this’ll be staying firmly on the ‘want’ list. I can’t ever imagine thinking anything I had to write down is quite that important!

What stationery items are on your want list?

Comments

Ooo, good call. I’ve been buying like mad in the interests of trying things out, but there’s some stuff on Ebay, like leather bound journals intended for Books of Shadows, that are way outside my price range and anything I would ever use, that are going to have to stay wishful.

I would love a hoard of rollerball pens and the best cheap paper.
