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. 😅
