Alphanumeric Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my little blog. Now wasn't I lucky to get picked by the lovely Mel for her Alphanumeric Blog Hop. I was given the letter P. Now after much thought and deliberation there was only one thing I could do about this letter.


My favourite shop Paperchase.




I have always had this love of stationery. I used to love the start of a new school year as you got your new pencilcase, pens and pencils. As I've got older it has been the lure of notebooks and my favourite shop has them in abundance. This is my latest.




In here I keep my lists of everything, it also has lovely pockets to put those odd bits of paper you get in. I have lists of things I have to do, things I want to do, lovely quotes, things to see, things to read, things to watch it goes on and on.


The next best thing in Paperchase are the stickers.




I have even got a tin especially for the stickers from there. Again this goes back to childhood, I used to collect stickers then 10p for a little square of stickers off a roll. They were great. Now it is a £1 for a pack of them from Paperchase. 


Not only do I have a love of this shop but Little Miss does to. She saves her pocket money up and gets herself notebooks, pens and stickers.


We all know and love this shop but when you visit the one a Tottenham Court Road London give yourself a couple of hours. Three floors of Paperchase goodies to browse and lust after, and a coffee shop to sit and relax in. Pure shopping heaven.


Thank you for taking time to visit and read my blog.


And next is Random Reflections.

I agree that a trip to Paperchase can end up with you spending hours in there! We don't have one nearby but I love the one in Cambridge, so many fun things in there.

Oh I was in Paperchase in Cribbs Causeway Bristol over the weekend, I just loved it! I went for a look and came out with a bag full of essentials!! What a clever post for P.

Oh I wish I had access to a Paperchase! I love stationary - I blame my love of it as a little girl for my excessive paperstash now! Love your post and your little bucket for your stickers! Jen x

Ooh, yes! My daughter and I had to be prised out of Paperchase yesterday. We still can't quite believe they have actually opened in our town :) A perfect P indeed.

Karen said...

I'm a huge fan of all things paper. There's a store here in the US called Paper Source that might be similar. Sadly none of them are any where close to where I live!

Tracy said...

I love stationery shops too. That notebook is so pretty.

Lisa Echerd said...

The shop sounds great. What a pretty notebook!

Cheri said...

I wish we had a paper chase store - it sounds lovely!

Melissa said...

Sounds like a pretty popular place - would love to have a few hours to browse all three stories! I personally believe you can never have too many journals or pens!

Beverly said...

You made me want to go shopping but we don't have any paperchases here :(

I love to spend time in Paperchase, just stroking all the lovely pads & wrapping paper. I'm a list person, so i get through an awful lot of notebooks & if you've gotta have 'em they may as well be pretty ones!!

Jimjams said...

I miss Paperchase - they don't seem to have it in my neck of the woods, but I used to love browsing there when I lived in London. Thanks for bringing back happy memories of my youth!

Amy said...

Oh how I wish we had shops like this in Australia!

Ginger said...

Sounds like the perfect place to spend a Saturday! Lovely post :)

No good paper/stationary stores to be found in Beijing. In fact, no good quality paper of ANY kind. But the up side? I save my money!

Denise said...

I'm going to echo the Three Floors ?!?! I do love Paperchase - I'm a sucker for diaries and postcards. Hmmm.

Sorry for the late comment, by the way. I just couldn't manage to get round everyone at the weekend x
