I was recently fortunate enough to escape a few weeks of this cold Canadian winter on a trip to Costa Rica. Upon returning I found I had travel on the brain more than ever and found myself gravitating towards items in the store that reflected my nomadic spirit.
We have a multitude of products in store to appeal to those looking to travel or interested in geography. Everything from travel journals, notecards, stickers, maps, and papers that depict patterns from around the globe.
I found I was especially drawn to our patterned wave and botanical Chiyogami, Zuiun, and Shibori Handmade Japanese decorative papers. I found it hard to look at them and not see swirling sand, tropical plants, and the beautiful gradients of the sunsets I had watched in the prior weeks. For those that scrapbook or create photo albums after travel be sure to browse through our binders in store because you may find treasures like these papers that you never knew about before.
Scratching off Costa Rica on our display interactive Scratch Map by Luckies of London ($29.95) was one of the first things I did upon arrival back to the store. These maps are a great way of tracking where you’ve been and where you want to go next. Travel aficionados feel free to make your mark on our map next time you’re in store to share where you’ve been. I know I can’t wait to be able to scratch more destinations off.
