Entetsu Department Store (Hamamatsu)/ 遠鉄百貨店 (浜松)

  • Kyukyodo postcards x 2 / 鳩居堂 ハガキ x 2

Loft (Hamamatsu) / ロフト 浜松

  • Pentel Correction pen / ぺんてる 修正ペン
  • Washi envelopes / 和紙のミニ封筒

Shopping for stationery for other people is one of my favorite things ever.  My grandmother asked me to pick up a correction pen for her. I didn't realize how less common they had become. Correction tape has totally taken over the market. 

While my grandmother is amused by the correction tape, she can't quite get the hang of it, so correction liquid in pen form it is.

Also picked up more postcards in my failing attempt to send more mail and some envelopes to go with some note paper I already had. 

祖母に頼まれて修正ペンを購入。人のための文房具買いはやはり楽しい。しかし修正テープがここまで主流になっているとは知らなかった。祖母も修正テープに興味はあるが、コツがイマイチつかめず、修正ペンの方が使いやすい。

他に、なかなか送れないが、それでも季節感と美しさに負け買った鳩居堂のハガキを二枚。そして、ミニノートのお揃いの封筒。

An overall, very cute collection of stationery. いや~かわいい写真になっちゃった・・・

Olympus Plus 

  • Kuretake Echizen Washi Sticky Notes/呉竹 越前和紙 ふせん
  • Midori Film (Speech Ballons)/ミドリ フィルム ふせん (吹き出し)
  • Midori B6 multi-pocket clear file/ミドリ B6 クリアファイル

Later in the week, I dropped by my regular stationery store and found the sticky note version of a series of letter sets that I love from Kuretake. With some self-control, I got just one and also these cute speech balloon stickies from Midori. Plus a multi-clear file also from Midori. I gave my grandmother the one I was using and while I picked up a replacement of a different pattern, I really like this one.

金曜日にまたオリンピアにより、呉竹が出してる越前和紙のふせんが可愛くて買っちゃった。ついでにクリアファイルとフィルムふせんを購入。クリアファイルは前に買ったのと同じだけど、おばあちゃんにあげて、デザインがやっぱりお気に入りなので、もう一枚購入。ふせんは手帳で帰るかどうか試しに買った。
