I can’t guarantee accuracy in these pictures because after trying to color correct them for awhile, I had to step away from the monitor.. 🙈 Darn neon colors! But this was fun, so I'm posting them anyway. And trust me, the orange colors are very close. The orange controller is slightly darker than the Unexposed’s counterpart, but both are shockingly bright and not as pink as pictured. As for the blue controller, it’s noticeably different from the blue memo book. They’re both very vibrant, but the controller is slightly lighter and has more of a yellow tint to it. It does not hurt my eyes as much as the orange one does.
Another stationery shop in Vancouver, BC that Mr. Three Staples and I were lucky enough to visit was The Regional Assembly of Text. What a wonderful store! If we hadn’t been on such a tight schedule, we definitely would have spent more than just half an hour here.
The store was easy to shop, with neatly laid out tabletops and displays. I particularly liked seeing typewriters, peg boards, and old-school chairs as part of their decor. In terms of merchandise, they had lots of journals, notebooks, desk accessories, and gifts, many of them designed and made in-house. Overall, it reminded me a bit of The Curiosity Shoppe and Little Otsu when they were still here in San Francisco.
Where else did we go for stationery? This was it! And Paper-Ya, which I wrote about in my previous post and also highly recommend. I want to make of special mention of the Capilano Suspension Bridge: they had stamping stations throughout the park, and we used them to blind-emboss the Field Notes travel journal that we carried throughout our trip. Oh, and I had poutine for the first time. 😅
