PAPERCHASE - latest products

ive been visiting my favourite shop paperchase, and was excited to see this teapot and teacups set featuring a lovely sketchy seedhead and flower design. i also thought that the gift box that it comes in is just as beautiful as the set itself. also new in were embroidered books - featuring familiar paperchase patterns but this time in cloth and stitch, and a brilliant new small softback photo album (shown here in hearts and fawn). scroll down for lots of paperchase delights. online here in the uk or in borders in the usa.

PAPERCHASE - spacers

also this month paperchase stores announced the arrival of the 'space oddities' (perhaps named after the david bowie song ?). its a cute stationery line for boys in the tradition of monstarz and mini mutants. see more from the 'spacers' online here.
