I am an ardent stationery collector/hoarder — when I was little the most exciting thing about going back to school after the holidays was getting new stationery and a new pencil case and that feeling never left me. I'm at university now and even though it's an online course (and most of my work is done on a computer) I still have a well-stocked stash. I have every pen, pencil, sketch pad and sticky note you could ever want or need.
I've featured a few stationery pieces below for your shopping pleasure.
