First things first: can we just hammer down one thing:

  • stationAry: something that stands still
  • stationEry: lovely papery things to scribble on

This, therefore, is stationery. It is, funnily enough, also stationary, because it isn’t mobile.

Lesson over, look at it. LOOKATIT. Isn’t it beautiful? Almost, I would say, worth the €28 Anthropologie want us to part with for it. Ahaaha! No, that isn’t a joke.

They really do expect their customers to pay twenty eight eurobux for an ombre notelet stack that is 20cm in height. Lovely and all as it is, I think they can whistle.

Or am I just being an auld scab and would you happily shell out for this glorious example of the stationers art?
