national stationery show: final roundup (non-cards)

by Grace Bonney

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!
