🚩 Happy First Annual Stationery Store Day 🚩!!!
Earlier this year, stationery store Calliope owner Kristina Burkey was frequently asked about the location of other stationery stores. Then while reflecting on how many other holidays there are to celebrate local shops (record store day, yarn shop day, etc.) she thought there should be a day to celebrate stationery stores. She took to action and asked other stationery stores to participate in an annual day of celebration, the first Saturday of August (August 6th, 2022).
I don’t have a brick and mortar, but my lil online stationery shop is celebrating as I sent out 5 orders today. I don’t know how to put it in to words how much I love my shop, love stationery, love art, love snailmail, and am eternally grateful to every customer who has supported my shop. The items I make are pretty niche (I don’t make greeting cards or feminine floral/ trendy in any way stationery) so I can’t help but think each customer I have is in some way a kindred spirit. Thank you for being here 😘
If you have a chance today (or this weekend) head into your local b&m stationery store and give them some love!
