...and before school begins

Do you ever feel like a big child because of penpalling?^^ In Poland it's not easy to find stationery in shops but just before the beginning of the school year there are lots of notebooks with colorful sheets in some supermarkets! I love this season^^ I wander among parents with kids and look at all notebooks, and choose! I can bet people think I make shopping for some child... and they're not much mistaken, I buy for a big child in me^^

New stuff!^^


Also, in the biggest bookstore chain in my country I found the lovely folk stationery^^ I love our folk patterns, so colorful.


And my last purchase lately... postal scales^^ Finally, I can order stamps through Internet, there's much bigger choice than in my post office and I won't have to wait in a queue there anymore.



Oh, happy me^^

  3. When I first got in to pen-palling the local supermarket used to stock up like that and I used to buy tonnes of things....then slowly the stopped and had the same thing every year.... and now they've eventually stopped selling it altogether.

    Thank goodness for the internet :P... I'm so used to writing on lines now though which isn't a good thing.

  4. Unfortunatelly, there aren't many Internet shops with stationery here either, at least with the notebooks as I'm not usually interested in 10 sheets+10 envelopes sets which often turn out not enough sheets and 9 envelopes stay:/ The online shops from abroad mean high delivery costs to me:/ So I'd rather "hunt" something in "real" shops. So I hope they won't stop selling stationery! Even though just once a year.

  5. Looking for supplies around here is a pain too... But those designs look so lovely and I really love the folk theme!! I've bought a scale like 10 years ago and it has been my best friend ever since ^.^ hehe... Happy to see all your lucky purchases ^^

  8. I don't remember the exact price but the upper ones were cheap, around EUR 1 I think. The folk ones were more expensive, around EUR 3 for the set and around EUR 4 for the pad.

  9. Such pretty papers!!

    I have seriously considered buying a postal scale myself, it would really help and I could stop standing in line at the post office forever. But they are $40 here...and all the stamps and papers I could buy with that!
