Feb 06, 2022
1. Papershop Helsinki
Beautiful Papershop Helsinki is located in the heart of Helsinki, Finland. From my experience, they have a unique approach to the stationery world and I’m free to say their style is very selective and refined. The brands and products they chose are of great quality and not something you can usually see in the big-box stores. With that unique selectivness, the interior of the Papershop is like you’re entering another world - something every stationery enthusiast must visit in a lifetime. It’s absolutely on my dream to-do list.
If you’re looking something special for that someone special, make sure to visit Papershop Helsinki at papershop.fi or Fredrikinkatu 18, 00120 Helsinki, Finland

2. Home & Fleur
Owned by Vita Vitushkina, a very talented and creative stylist living in Switzerland. Home & Fleur is just an extenstion of the previous online webshop that Vita turned into a successful inspirational business in just a year or so. Her photography skills and love for stationery and beautiful gifts brought her to that next step - to open a little store in a charming area in the Old Town Zurich. Although I was born in Switzerland, I’m not familiar with Zurich that much but I can feel the charm Vita is bringing through her talent.
Home & Fleur sell everything you need if you’re a stationery lover, including gifts such as jewelry, accesories and home decor that can make any home even more beautiful. I was happy seeing she sells extraordinary ceramics from my internet friend Marinski.
Don’t miss to visit lovely Home & Fleur at homeandfleur.com or Vita personally at instagram.com/vitavi
If you’re close, stop at Wohllebgasse 7, 8001 Zurich, Switzerland

3. Honest Paper
Beautiful Honest Paper, an Australian stationery shop specialising in designer paper goods, boutique office supplies and art. I’ve been following Bella & Gabi from Honest Paper for quite some time now (whiiiile back when they were on the old location) and all I can say is, Honest Paper is the visual representation of passion for stationery in a physical form. They grown so much and these two ladies work so hard and so dedicated. No wonder that's visible through every product they chose, every gift they wrap and even how their physical shop Honest Paper looks like. If I ever end up in Australia, I’ll visit you!
Enter their world through honestpaper.com.au or visit directly at Shop 8, 18 Wolfe Street, Newcastle, Australia NSW 2300 and say hello to Bella & Gabi from me!

I’m imagining myself forever wondering through these shelves. Every corner tells it story. Every cabinet holds a future memory. If you’re a true stationery addict, no doubt you'll fell in love with Paper and Grace. Since magic doesn’t know its barrier, they even opened a new location at the @mainstmarket_bzn.

A lifestyle shop located in Brooklyn and runned by Stacy has one of the most beautiful online presence, and that include their website as well. I love iand enjoy it every time I visit the website. Love all the tiny details and color and well-edited assortment of home decor, textiles, table linens, artwork, apothecary, stationery and more that are chosen and presented with great respect. You can almost touch and feel the product through their imagery. So very well done and I love it not only from the shop perspective but also from the brand perspective. Thank you Stacy for your creativity and talent, it inspire us all.

7. January Letterpress
You know when you enter a stationery store and you’re just mesmerized by their greeting card wall?! I never visited but January Letterpress have one of the most beautiful card wall I’ve seen! Their shop is so bright and beautiful but the card wall is something you can’t forget. It feels like every card there is a piece of art. Thanks to Michelle and Jon, who are the creators behind January Letterpress, if you’re into quality letterpress or you just need a quality gift, make sure to visit them (and snap a photo of that card wall for me!) in Downtown Waco, Texas.
But if you’re not close, you can always shop their website at januaryletterpress.com or visit their Instagram profile instagram.com/januaryletterpress

8. Postscript Press
When I started my stationery business and when I started to research for the best greeting cards out there (to learn and be inspired by), the massive red brick wall was one of the first ones I saw online and loved it ever since. I love their style, their approach to both laughs and stationery - I feel it’s a place where you want to be. From their imagery to brands they sell and their vintage finds exposed across the shop, they can be your favorite place for anything stationery related.
P.S., you can visit them at postscript.press or 1434 Silver Street, Ashland, NE 68003. Also, don't forget to follow them through IG @postscript.press

Cute little lifestyle, stationery and gift boutique in Lyon, France. The minute I saw it I fell in love with Clara (the owner) and her beautiful place. Through gifts, products and everything she chose, you can feel her love and passion for what she is doing.
