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 ...

Oooh, reading this thread had re-kindled a long forgotten love of 'nice writers' and notebooks with crisp, thick, white paper and pretty covers.
Right. I'm off to check out everyone's links (credit card at the ready)!

I'm a pen addict and buy all my pens from

I've just ordered a big batch of different kinds to experiment with.

Stationery wise I admit to tending to buy when away on holiday - I have beautiful notebooks from liberty, shanghai tang and il papiro and correspondence cards from liberty, il papiro and the metropolitan museum of art.

Crumbs! I thought I was a bit over-commited to my stationery needs. Until this thread. In a drugs analogy, I've been doing the odd spliff. Some of you are main-lining crack.

And I am clicking. We have a Paperchase in central M/c - for everything else it'll have to be t'internet.

Lurker, liberty notebooks & correspondence cards??? I NEED them in my life.
Where can I buy them? My breathing has got a bit quicker with the anticipation of purchasing something so lovely!

DancingRoundTheKitchen Sun 11-Mar-12 10:20:29

Oh i get it, from Liberty.....are they liberty print though?

KateSpade Sun 11-Mar-12 10:35:45

I love stationary, I have about 4 pink parker pens, i just can't resist, especially diaries, notebooks, ect.

I especially like Promarkers for all my hand-drawn fashion illustrations.

Theirs only one place in my uni town, where they stock them and their like £4 per pen. shock but online their quite cheap...

KateSpade Sun 11-Mar-12 10:39:31

ohmydays look at all these

gold ones

aahh, heaven!

travailtotravel Sun 11-Mar-12 11:40:50

Oh, ladies. You haven't let me down. I have a high right now looking at the linkys <sigh>. I suspect this will be an expensive thread in the end!

travailtotravel Sun 11-Mar-12 11:55:05

Oh god, the liberty stuff. I need to give my bank card to DH, don't I.

Also funny stuff - someone brave enough to go overthere (unstylish emoticon) should tell S&B threaders about this!

stealthsquiggle Sun 11-Mar-12 12:19:07

Adding my virtual page tag thingy...

I will come back when DH isn't looking I am feeling less poor. This could be even more expensive than Children's books threads (but not as expensive as the cake quiche, hopefully)

I love notebooks, preferably plain rather than lined. Have found tkmaxx do a nice selection, picked up two Lisa Stickley notebooks ( both identical, as there were only two left and i couldn't bear the thought of anyone else having them) beautiful quality and so pleasing to the eye. Have a huge drawer dedicated to the storage of my unused collection smile

FatPatChatsBack-the Tk You mention sounds like my TK Maxx who has Lisa Stickley stuff in including pencils

Can you buy stationary online? I can't. Not even pens.

I need to look at them, hold them & test them. If I need a journal/address book etc, I need to look at the pages, flick through them..


RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 11-Mar-12 14:01:50

I agree - need to touch before buying.

jendifa Sun 11-Mar-12 14:31:49

Oh my goodness, this thread has made me so happy! I like independent stationary shops. There are a few near me though that I think are chains - Smithsonia is good.

juneybean Sun 11-Mar-12 14:35:54

You The Works has some gorgeous notepads, I got one with a picture of two little girls, think it's called Milly & Macy? So cute! and so cheap

juneybean Sun 11-Mar-12 14:36:03

Oops you know ^

juneybean Sun 11-Mar-12 14:40:38

and I meant "molly and macy" ... fail.

EvenBetter Sun 11-Mar-12 14:51:18

I need nice paper!!
I have pen pals (nerd) who gave all sorts of gorgeous printed paper-landscapes, borders with gorgeous patterns, mad Japanese paper. But NOTHING here. It needs to be A4 sized and lots of it.
At the minute I'm just using coloured paper & decorating it myself. Paperchase only has boring paper, but nice colours & there's no Wilkinson or anything like that where i live.

Not too obsessed with pens as I'm left handed and write 'upside down', so everything is a smudgy mess

Ooh has anyone seen any nice in-tray type things at any of these places? I had some nice ones from John Lewis (black, with black and white London skyline photo inside) but I need some more and they've stopped doing them! I hate the usual ugly wire or plastic trays.

ChippingInNeedsCoffee Sun 11-Mar-12 15:08:12

Lots of lovely links smile

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Sun 11-Mar-12 15:12:07

If you want to be a 'proper' member of The Stationery Addicts Support/Motivation Group, though, PLEASE make sure you all spell it right. smile I am also a fan of sitting still but this is about stationEry, not being stationAry. Sorry but I couldn't let it lie. smile

See, I like Muji for trays etc but they would be too boring for you, Inigo. Gosh, I love Inigo M almost as much as I love notebooks so I am now doubly excited!
