Categories: Bookstand, Stationery
I was checking site statistics, and found an unusual link to the Bookstand - Stationery page from a LiveJournal entry:
"Attention cranberryink and anyone else who is all gaga about office supplies...where, other than the Container Store (which I love, love, love) can I look at some really stylin' desk accessories? Like letter trays and clear desk pads and vertical sorters and stuff?"
"Russell + Hazel is great and my personal favorite. This site also has some cool links."
To which martexx replies:
"Oh my god, some of the stuff on that second site. *papergasm*"
If martexx is out there, she'd see new causes for papergasm on the Bookstand - Stationery page:
Compendium, Inc., featuring Extraordinary Greetings, which open not only once, but twice, to reveal an inspirational quotation on paper that's the size of a poster. While inspirational message have become cliche, the two-color posters and type faces are strictly modern. I found Extraordinary Greetings at the shop at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
Mara-Mi, a Minneapolis-based company that licenses the designs of handbag and accessories designer Lulu Guinness (froufrou) and ceramist-turned-design mogul Jonathan Adler (modern).
Nouvelles Images, a French company whose products include Fold 'n Please, a postcard with a flap that folds over and seals to conceal your message - and please, no jokes about French postcards :-) I found Nouvelles Images at Whole Foods Market - its store in Vienna, Virginia features a wide selection of cards and non-food items in its middle aisles.
