I need some new suppliers to support my habit. Where, other than Paperchase and Artbox, can I get notebooks, sticky notes and other supplies that will make you sigh with contentment? I need a fix ...

Looks like I killed the thread, but I felt I should report that I nearly had to be helped away from TK Maxx today. I restrained myself and bought only a Designers' Guild pencil case with four colourful pencils in and a Designers Guild notebook with a cut out front and lovely liner. Fortunately they are both packaged so they can be saved for Christmas presents. Possibly.

Just resurrecting this thread to say that I got a great 18 month diary fom TK Maxx last week.....soft pink leather covers and proper paper pages, not the kind you usually get in diaries that you could spit pas through! I may have had a bit of a frenzy buying lovely pens from all the back to school stuff that's on the go just now....

TK Maxx are pretty good for random stationery bits, but because of this randomness, you never see the same thing in two different stores. I've bought lovely craft sets in there in the past, for half the price of somewhere like Hobbycraft!

A friend told me about this thread, I can't believe there are so many stationery lovers! I recently got married to a stationer whose family have been doing it since 1863 www.wstraker.co.uk so loving stationery is very much a necessity!
If you like design and stationery I can recommend this site for nice designs etc www.lovelystationery.com we took some inspiration for our wedding invites from here.

The Pen & Ink Co do lovely illustrated stationery like correspondence cards. I went to a wedding recently and they had also designed all the wedding stationery www.the-pen-and-ink.co.uk

Paperchase recently opened a shop in my town centre. I have never before seen such heavenly goods. Every week I am torn between gorgeous stationery or feeding the family.

(Sorry on phone cant link) For the poster who needs a smooth write they do a ballpoint to called a slider which is amazing. free postage over a tenner and next day delivery.
