As If I Needed More Stationery…

stationery picks from GreerPart of the fun of going to the Halloween Mail Art Party was getting to shop at Greer afterwards. For those of you who might not know, Greer is the place to go for stationery in Chicago. There is something for everyone: elegant, quirky, masculine, funny, exquisite, serious, sentimental… Chandra Greer has excellent taste in paper and she is a huge supporter of small, independently-owned businesses. I always have a good time shopping there because I see something new and unexpected from tiny stationery makers all over the world.  le typographe neon cardsIn addition to a single greeting card (made by La Familia Green) and a box of Halloween cards (made by Rifle), I got these neon yellow notecards from le typographe (the same company that made this insect stationery I love so much). They are flat cards, one side is neon and the other is white. The envelopes are white with neon on the inside. I sent out some neon mail this summer and apparently a lot of my pen friends are fans, so why not have another go? I think they might be the perfect cards to send during the long, cold winter (which apparently is starting today…snow in Chicago??)Fig. 2 Design watercolor notecardsIn subtler stationery selections, I picked up these gold foil, dip dye flat cards (from Fig. 2 Design Studio). Pool blue is my color and I fell in love with the gold K and the tiny arrow…they were made for me, obviously.3P4 Penpal Society keychainAnd finally…the item that made me squeal with delight–a PenPal Society key tag (made by Three Potato Four)! I’ve had my eye on these for awhile and I was so happy to find one locally!

Of course, there were a thousand other things that I wanted to buy, but those will have to wait until the next visit. I definitely need to go back to work on my Christmas list!
