Given my posts on stationery shops I’ve visited in other cities (Oxford, New Orleans, and Paris), it only seemed appropriate to feature some stationery I picked up at a local shop right here in my own town of Chapel Hill, NC.
Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Salutations Fine Stationery and Gifts.
I stopped by recently on a whim, because who really needs a reason to go to a stationery shop? I walked out with several treasures, including this wonderful Crane letter set in blue:
One of my favorite finds was this gorgeous Crane flat note set with a…crane?…no I think it’s a blue heron:
I also found this lovely 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ rose note pad by Heather Bailey. It will work beautifully as stationery for my longer letters:
You can find local Rossi (and other wonderful stationery) retailers here at OrangeArt Stationery.
And the finale, this delicious Elum letter-pressed card I bought for my darling dearest:
So now I’m all stocked up for corresponding with my new pen pals and old friends (hope you enjoyed the sneak preview, Carrie, Alison, Laura, Lisa, Maria, Allison, Mary, Pam, Jennifer, Randi, and Annie!).
We’ll, let’s be real. It wasn’t like I was running low on any stationery. But at least now I can keep things interesting!
