Sometimes, you’d rather skip the “E” — especially when it comes before “books” and “mail.” Stationery and gift boutique Greer stocks goodies for those who love paper and the feel of a pen in their hand.
The Sneaker Coloring Book, $20
Its publisher, design team Pknts, isn’t Mickey Mousing around. The 100-pager contains drawings of sneakers made from 1916 to today, including iconic Puma, Adidas, and Reebok kicks.
George Washington’s Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior, $10
Get a manners lesson from the first pres with the gold-embossed book. Our fave: “Put not your meat to your mouth with your knife in your hand.”
Rock Paper Scissors Note Cards, $12.50
Artist Alisha Gould’s set of six recycled-paper cards lets you roshambo in an artful fashion.
Crafterall Chicago on Lake Michigan Cut-Paper Art, $40
Midwest gal Marnie Karger cut four layers of card stock and carefully layered them to create the eight-by-ten-inch aqua art piece. A framer if we ever saw one.
Caran d’Ache Office Ballpoint Pen, $19.50
Unleash your inner scribe with a long-lasting Swiss writing instrument, which comes in twelve colors. Dear Caran, we love you in metallic violet. Yours, DailyCandy.
