Gearing up for NYC

NYC National Stationery Show 2013 - #NSS

Remember a few months ago when I made my list of things to accomplish this year? Number 7 was attending the National Stationery Show and now it’s finally here. Saturday I’m hopping a plane to go stay with my Stationery Academy roomie Caroline Hull (who is KILLIN’ it this year!) and check out all the fabulous paper action happening at NSS and Surtex. It’s almost an Alt Summit/Stationery Academy reunion; I can’t wait to catch up with Amber Housley, Whitney English, the Ampersand Design Studio girls, Jessica Bishop, Libbylane Press , Jenn Sprinkle… the list goes on and on!

I haven’t been to Manhattan a few years (remember this trip?) and while I won’t have a ton of time for buzzing around town, I will for sure be hitting up the following new-to-me picks —

And of course I might sneak in a visit to ABC Carpet & Home and Jonathan Adler. But we’ll see.  And hopefully some of my paper peeps will want to go out to Eataly. And Shake Shack. And … well, the list could potentially be endless.

Got any suggestions for new must-sees? And of course some must-eats?

    C Wonder is my happy place!

  • If you have time, check out the Mad. Sq. Eats food festival, which runs twice a year for about a month:
    It’s right near Eataly and Shake Shack, and the food options are kind of incredible. I work half a block away and have to prevent myself from going there every day!

  • I hope you have a wonderful time! I had to choose between NSS and Stationery Academy for 2013 and the Academy won (so excited!)…but I will miss NSS. Wear comfortable shoes and remember to eat 🙂

    • Yay! So glad you’re coming to Stationery Academy!

    Some of my favorite local ‘Paper People’ will be there from PORRIDGE PAPERS, Lincoln, Ne. They do awesome work on letter press and make their own paper. Enjoy NYC!

    • Ooh, thanks for the heads-up! I’ll keep an eye out for them!
