One of my not-so-secret obsessions: Stationery. I’ve loved snail mail since I was a little kid. I faithfully wrote to my pen pal, who lived in Texas, every single week for years. Sure, it’s old school, but there is something really special about receiving a handwritten note. Today, I use any occasion as an excuse to break out my collection of notecards. Here are several sets that I’m coveting right now.
1. Antique Stitch Pool A2 Stationery, set of 10, from Paper Source, $9. 2. Rose Cards, set of 6, by Fawnsberg, $16.50. 3. Bow Note Cards, set of 6, by Sugar Paper, $24. 4. Assorted Girlie Dog Cards, set of 8, by Rifle Paper Co., $18.
5. Herringbone Blank Note Cards, set of 4, by Monkey Mind Design, $8. 6. Stanley’s Stationery, set of 8, by Mr. Boddington’s Studio, $20. 7. Polka Dot Cards, set of 12, by Wit & Whistle, $9. 8. Tribe Print Notecards, set of 10, by Rocket Ink, $12.50.
