Happy Hour: The Superior Labor x Jim Thompson, Blackwing Volume 64, and SAIEN washi
The Stationery Cafe
Welcome to the Stationery Cafe Happy Hour, April from @penguinscreative and Kelly from @kellyloveletters get together to talk about the latest in the stationery community. Kelly is excited about her first Sailor Virtual Ink Show experience, and April went down memory lane with The Superior Labor x Jim Thompson release. We shared some stationery that we enjoyed lately (Kelly got a washi tape about bridges). We also lament over the fact we can't join the Bungujoshi Petit event in Nagoya, but at least we can admire the exclusive items!
