The Stationery Selection March 2018 Review
Sometimes you’ll get a business card from The Stationery Selection displaying their contact info.
You’ll then find an info sheet (on beautiful handmade looking paper) listing out everything in this month’s box.
Delfonics Small Inner Carrying Case in Black
OMG OMG. I AM SO PUMPED ON THIS! I love pen cases and this is like, the mother of all cases! These apparently come in a few different sizes, but I love this small one that has a TON of pockets for all your stationery and planner goods! Delfonics makes amazing stuff already and I didn’t know they had something like this since I’m more familiar with their pens and pencils. This pouch is 7.5 inches wide x 5 inches high x 2 inches deep and is made from cotton canvas with a metal zipper. The front has one large pocket and 3 smaller pockets, the back has one large pocket with velcro closure and 2 additional smaller pockets. Once inside, you’ll see two small inner pockets on one side and one large velcro closure pocket on the other. So much room for all different sized items! I just love this and am so glad I got it in black (it was shipped with several different colors, judging by Instagram photos). So simple and functional!
Vegetable Sticker Pack
Eeeeeek these are cuuuute! I love veggies and this pack has a whopping 40 single thin paper stickers divided into 10 colorful vegetable designs! The avocado is probably my favorite, and you know I’ll have to just torch those onion ones (just kidding, but I do hate onions). Healthy and fun!
Kokuyo Dotliner Compact
This little device is so clever and useful! Instead of using glue or tape, just open this up and roll it across the surface you wish to adhere, and it dispenses tiny dots of glue to get the job done! The perfect amount of stickiness is doled out so you don’t have to work with messy glue or cutting tape to the right length. It’s perfect for scrapbooking or planner decorating since it’s compact and hassle-free.
Kokuyo Tidbit Free Cut Memo Pad – Retail Value $4.45
Whoa, this is a unique little notepad unlike any other! It seems like a graph paper pad, but a closer look discovers that the lines are perforated so that you can tear any size for craft projects or notes! The inside even has a pocket to store loose bits to use later! The dotliner is a perfect pairing for this so you can decorate different sizes and affix them into your planner.
Tombow Play Color Dot in Coral – Retail Value $3.00
Speaking of planners, this is another handy little writing utensil! One side is a thin felt tip marker pen and the other is a dot stamp so you can highlight dates with one dab or use it to decorate! The light and the bright coral color is perfect for Spring if you ask me!
Zebra Sarasa 3 Color Multi Pen, 0.5mm – Retail Value $5.75
Be still, my beating heart! My favorite pen of all time (the Zebra Sarasa Clip that I am always yacking about in my stationery reviews) has been beefed up to form this 3-color multi pen! I can use red, black, and blue ink all in one while retaining the smooth writing and spring-loaded clip of my old favorite! This reminds me of the multi-color pens I used to have as a kid. What a treat for me, I didn’t know these existed!
Verdict: The has to be my favorite Stationery Selection to date and that’s a hard thing to say! I thought they put together a great mix of items that were few but exciting! This stationery sub is my favorite, month after month and they really outdid themselves this time. The pouch got me really amped to organize and travel with some of my favorite pens and tools, and the Zebra Sarasa Multi Pen is like a dream come true for this pen nerd. All of the items were just so awesome this time around and none of them would be easy for me to find in my city (or even for sale online). The steep price tag for this box will always be worth it for me!
