Photo of the Day: Maker Goods Haul

Maker Goods Haul

I plan to do reviews of many of the products I purchased at the local eye candy, shop-of-wonders, Maker Goods, but I thought I’d tantalize you with a photo first. Proprietor and woman-of-many-talents, Felicia Koloc hand marbelled the fabric and then beautifully stitched the pencil case pictured above. She also makes them in leather but they were a bit out of my price range. The selection of pencils and included NOS Col-Erase as well as a wide assortment of imported Japanese pencils. So much to choose from, it was hard not to buy them all.

I also picked up a Maruman Mnemosyne notebook and a clever A4/3 notebook which is designed to fit A4 paper folded in thirds and includes a pocket in the back to hold such items. It even included instructions on how to fold up your A4s to fit.

If you happen to pass through Kansas City on your travels, this is definitely a place you must visit! I’m going to make sure it’s on Tessa’s handy dandy stationery map right now.

Eraser Gift Packaging

Eraser package

Using wrapping paper and a couple card stock wedges to create the beveled edge, Oh Happy Day created a back-to-school package in the classic shape of a Pink Pearl eraser to fill with goodies. I think this is the perfect gift packaging for any gift for your favorite pen-and-paper geek.

His (or Her) Majesty’s Stationery Office

Collage of images from H.M.S.O.

This is a fascinating collection of vintage office supplies from the official Stationery Office of the King or Queen of England. The office was in existence for over 200 years providing office supplies to civil servants. Each item is marked with the letters “S.O.” and a crown. Lito has collected and beautifully photographed dozens of products from the S.O. Check out her Flickr Album to see and read more about the items.
