We've talked stationary and letterpress.. but there's something about every day paperpads and notebooks. They're necessary and it's exciting to make the necessary cool. I've used Rhodia and I'm a solid fan. So simple (maybe that word is overused on our blog?) and stylish but an equally great deal!
The Curiosity Shoppe sells an amazing Rhodia treasure box. "The box (which looks like a giant notepad!) includes two 3" x 4" pads, one 6" x 8" pad, one 3" x 8" pad, and two pencils." For only $15. Wowza!
