Once upon a time I studied abroad in London. It was the best and quite often I think I could have done more to make the most of it. The one thing I did make the most of? Shopping. I was great at it. I fell in love with the magical, giant Paperchase store on Tottenham Court Rd. I was lost in the stationery, the supplies, endless notebooks and colorful patterns. I am still rationing adorable polka dot cards from that visit (eight years ago).
Each year since, I purchased a Paperchase diary (read: agenda) to manage my time and projects. I loved picking out the design that would shape my year. That is, until Borders closed and Paperchase was scarcely seen in the US.
Luckily, Target came to the rescue and announced they would be carrying Paperchase products starting last November. Why oh why, then, did it take until last week for me to spot them in my local store? I squealed when I saw it, even if the pickings were slim. Here's hoping they add more!
What do you think? Will you be stocking up on Paperchase goods while they last?
