My stationary needs a suitcase.

So, I've had a slight obsession with paper products lately (slight) as evidenced by these previous posts. My collection is steadily growing with my latest pieces being a few cards from this ahh-dorable etsy shop. So, the question now is where do I put all these lovely, well designed paper goods? Currently they're stuffed in a desk drawer or they're mingling with the craft supplies, either way they're not housed well. Well, I think my search might be over.

That's right, paper suitcases from Pink Loves Brown (just re-opened!).
These beauties come in three sizes, perfect for holding photos, stationary, cards, decorative paper, old love letters (if you're the angsty type), etc.

So now the question remains, do I go for pink, yellow...

...or blue?

Best part is, they range from $11.50-$14.50 so you don't have spend much to carry that stationary in style.

Oh wow, these are so cool! I'm totally torn between the pink and the yellow. What an ingenious (and adorable) way to store one's papers and letters!

My...we have the same taste!
I have a set already...mine are in Kelly green(not shown in this pic),
I guess these are their new colours? Great buy & they are good quality as well~

Kate Gabrielle said...

wow, I keep all of my stationery in a little suitcase that looks just like these, except mine is aqua with white polka dots :) And now I'm going to go look at the card store to see if I can fill up my suitcase some more! ;)

MissBliss said...

~KS said...

These are fabulous... Could you pick one of each color??

Why do I have a weakness for suitcases? It has to be the promise of adventure rather than the actual use. I bought a really nice (designer) luggage set a few years ago and am filled with regret: I worry every time I travel with it!
BUT - these will be safe at home. PaperSource always has fun little cases too. They would also make adorable playroom storage (one for dolly's hats, one for the princess dresses, etc.).

Email me with your address etc so I can post it to you

so cute! I found a bunch of little suitcases that were my Nana's, one had her bathing suit (circa 1950's) swimming cap, and a towel all ready to go for a quick trip to the beach!! I still have it all packed up like she did :) Using them for stationary is such a great idea though!

matildalucille said...

These are absolutely divine!!!I have been looking for a set like this for a gift and these are perfect! I would have to have the pink ones...not just because they are pink, but I love how the bright turquoise punch of color contrasts with it. Just adorable!

ChloƩ said...

ahhh! those are all so cute! what a neat idea!

Magchunk said...

So much more fun than a shoebox. Reminds me of the little suitcase I'd take when spending the night at grandma's.
