national stationery show: final roundup (non-cards)

today i’m nearing the end of my stationery show coverage, and thought it would be fun to take a quick break from cards and focus on some of the non-card items from the show. and don’t worry, i’m not talking about the seemingly endless amounts of booths selling crappy hannah montana binders and plastic tiaras (dear nss planners: i really wish that stuff was in an entirely different section of the show, labeled “crap”). instead i’m talking about some beautiful hand-stitched accessories, cool paper-based accessories, ceramics, candles, decorative tape, and a few shots of my favorite booth design form the show. stay tuned for the final stationery show post tomorrow!

[image above: the random lighting at nss killed a lot of my photos so my shots don’t do this booth justice, but linda & harriet‘s booth was a gorgeous explosion of linen, color, and vintage postcards]

Love the cross-stitchable tags! I like that it’s a little gift edition that you get to do yourself.


NSS does need a section with all the binders, tiaras, and such. It is way to random and pointless to make everyone walk all over the place. It was hard to find people. Great post!!!!


Oh my gosh.

Those little cross-stitchable tags, and the displays…..I think I would have died and gone to heaven. Seriously.

I’ve never thought about going to a ‘Stationary Show’ before, but this makes me want to book a flight!

Such fantastic ideas….it boggles the mind.
