With me getting back into penpalling, I have been looking for stationery. It used to be everywhere and I’m pretty sure that email and text led to a lack of need for it. I’ve been looking everywhere for it, even Hobby Lobby where I *NEVER* shop because they are utter hypocrites about their pro-life stance. (If they’re so concerned with being publicly pro-life, perhaps the lion’s share of their products shouldn’t come from a country with a forced abortion policy, eh?) Hobby Lobby has some, but I don’t want to shop there and decided to go online to search.
Here is what I have found:
Hallmark. It’s a no-brainer that Hallmark would have some. The problem: there isn’t one near where I live. (Near being “within 20 miles”.) Thankfully, I can order it online!
JetPens. JetPens has pens of different natures, but also letter sets, envelopes, and cards. I have a wishlist going there of things that look interesting.
PaperArts. I think this site is nice because you can order things by the piece instead of as a set. They have so many different kinds of paper that could be used for scrapbooks or letter writing.
Muji. Muji is another Japanese site with a stationery section. They seem to be pretty inexpensive which is nice.
Tokyo Pen Shop. In addition to pens, this site has a bunch of different color options for stationery and it’s cute stuff.
Etsy Etsy is another no-brainer. There are handmade cards and interesting prints. Some sites also have a template you can download for a few dollars and use to print out your own pretty papers.
