Nestled around the card racks are displays with journals, hostess gifts, candles, picture frames, pens, decorative boxes and other neat items. Browsing is likened to a treasure hunt!
We offer a diverse selection of our favorite journals, sketchbooks, and fine pen lines in the shop. From locally-made journals to recognized brands, including Moleskine, Rhodia, and Paperblanks. For pens we carry an assortment of colored Le Pens, 7-Year pens, Retro 1951, Lamy, Caran d’Ache, and Regal. We also carry a variety of bottled inks for refilling!
We always have a large collection of bookends on display in our windows. Owls, Mermaids, Frog Princes, Curious Cats, Whales, Ballerinas, Rabbits, &c. Most of our bookends are cast of either Iron or Brass, strong enough to hold up any books in the collector’s library.
Our growing selection of American made, hand-poured candles feature Eco-friendly options with sustainably sourced waxes and wicks, recycled containers, and essential oils. From spearmint and tea tree oil to tobacco flower and vanilla, today’s candles offer unique and sophisticated scents that everyone is sure to enjoy.
