Yesterday was the tag sale at The Hive, and I must say it was quite a success. Suann and Kate decided it was time to sell all their old paper goods. As a letterpress lover and paper collector, it was a tiny piece of heaven. Needless to say, I left with a small army of paper goods in tow.

PS. Lauren O'Neill is pictured above and she has begun blogging over at Noted. It's a lovely little space and I highly recommend taking a look.

PPS. The husband is taking a half day off today. We have a meeting in Old Town, but I'm pretending we're playing hooky.

  2. Sounds simply lovely. Letterpress has always interested me, and paper goods could perhaps become a new collection. Have fun playing "hooky."

  16. Oh, wish I could of been there! There's just not much paper to be found around here, except for plain printer paper and the likes. Speaking of which, if you don't mind me picking your brain ... you don't happen to know of anywhere I can order (online) letter stationary, that's the size of or close to the size of a standard piece of paper (8.5 x 11)? Instead of those half-size stationaries or notecard kind of stationary ... I can't help it, I write lengthy letters, and small paper means using a lot of sheets and making for an awkwardly squat, fat letter.

    I've looked around, and what I've found is all either custom and/or way out of my price range, too small, or just plain paper ... and sometimes I don't wish to have to embellish it myself.

    Whoa. Sorry, forgive this long comment. But as a self-professed letterpress lover and paper collector, and with good taste, I might add, thought maybe you'd have some ideas. I'm desperate! As you can tell.

    Thanks for your lovely comment, by the way!

    xoxo
