I love everything about vintage letters – the delicate handwriting, the old stamps, and even the crinkled colored paper. It's so refreshing to remember the art handwritten notes, especially during our internet-obsessed time! Check out more vintage letters and the stories behind them at Hawaiian Stamps! I hope this inspires you to pick up a pen and a piece of your own stationery and write a note to someone you care about!
I've been loving the weekly installments of Jay Roeder's "Juicy" by Notorious B.I.G. lyrical typography drawings. Roeder is self-described as addicted to "drawing letters, lyrics, and random stuff." These posters really bring me back to my school days - driving around with my gals, listening to awesome music, talking about boys and generally being too cool! The "Juicy" posters represent one line of the rap, posted each Friday to Roeder's blog, until the lyrics run out. Can't wait until Friday? Check out some of Roeder's other super creative posters!
Menage Fine Stationery & Gifts is a quaint store for all your stationery needs. It has been in business as long as us here at Haute Papier (five years)! Dixie and the ladies at Menage work hard to supply Memphis with their desires in the world of stationery. I just had to ask her more!!
How many years have you been in business? 5 years in June
Do you have a website, if so, what's the address? www.menagestationery.com
If you were to sell something other than stationery, what would it be? We are already a gift and stationery store...a regular destination for our gift giving friends! We have a unique gift wrap that they all seam to love, but if I could add another dimension it might be to add more in the way of calligraphy supplies and perhaps a few office/desk inspired antiques.
Besides the obvious (stationery), what is your favorite thing to give as a hostess gift? Wine related gifts, cocktail napkins, vases, cheese knives.
Here at Haute Papier, we love to eat! When in NYC for the National Stationery Show, where is your favorite place to grab dinner? My philosophy is NEVER eat anywhere you can eat at home! I love to seek out neighborhood restaurants. One of my recent successes was wild Ginger, 380 Broome St., New York, NY 10013 - a very reasonably priced vegetarian stop in Soho.
Any other tidbits about your store you'd like to share? We opened our doors almost 5 years ago less than a mile from another well established Memphis paper store in the heart of East Memphis. So we have never had Crane or William Arthur! We have steadily carved our niche in the beautiful world of letterpress.
