COVID-19 Update: OPEN 4 BUSINESS

These are very difficult times for everyone, but we want you to know that Stationary N’ Stationery is still open for business and will be for as long as the post offices remain open. You can use the code CHEERMEUP10 to access 10% off your basket total, and we’ll have at least two dispatch dates per week.

We work with a lot of Britain-based, small but brilliant suppliers, which means that we have luckily been able to continue making orders from their warehouses despite the current coronavirus restrictions on business practice.

We would just ask that you be patient with us if, for example, an item that you order from our site turns out to be on backorder, as there may be a delay in us getting it in before getting to you. If this were to happen, you obviously will be informed immediately and given the option to either receive a full refund, or wait until we get a delivery. In the mean time, fear not! We have a big ol’ treasure trove of stock at the ready, just waiting to go to a new home.

I recommend grabbing a nice notebook and a fountain pen; what’s the point of working from home if you can’t choose your own super-cute or swearword-ridden stationery?!?!

As promised… fountain pen bonanza!

Who invented the word ‘bonanza’ and what does it mean? Was it just for marketing? I reckon so. I will look it up in a dictionary and then write it in my notebook in my heavenly limited edition Mint Glaze Lamy Safari fountain pen because, yes, as we promised, we have got a FABULOUS collection of carefully chosen cartridge-based fountain pens in!

I’ve chosen four models of pen, which fall under four categories of feelings regarding the luxury scale of your pen:

  • Fly
  • Super-fly
  • OMDAYZ
  • Wow am I the Queen?

Timeless Planner Sale with Free P&P!

Come one, come all, to this organised affair!

We’ve got a super sale on ALL of our Ohh Deer planners because we are so excited to introduce this brand new Zodiac Constellations Daily Planner, which is just too beautiful.

The planners have blank boxes for days and dates, so there is no need to worry about what year it is, or which days you do or don’t use the planner. It won’t go out of date at the end of the year, and you won’t have that annoying feeling of buying a diary part way through the year and the first few months being empty. (At least, I think that is really annoying, maybe other people aren’t as bothered…)

Below are some example images of the inside of the planner.

Our most positive reviews are of these planners, and they are what we have sold most of both around Christmas and post-New Year.

Enjoy the bargain as they are now only 11.95 each with FREE P & P – for free postage and packaging, just add the code ‘sillychorlton’ at check out.

Over and out!

Introducing local ‘weirdo’ artist, SugaryBenny!

We are SUPER excited to be able to introduce the work of SugaryBenny to our shop both online and at our pop-up events, starting from THIS TUESDAY where we will be at The Tap with our wares 4.30-9.30pm!

Whether it’s neon badges of mad cat characters or slightly twisted Birthday cards, SugaryBenny has got something for you.

His wildlife zines are absolutely exquisite, as you can see from some of these print examples, and each edition (only 18 currently) is hand-marbled and therefore totally unique.

An elusive character, @Sugarybenny described himself as follows:

SugaryBenny is an independent weirdo artist from Manchester. He has a sweet tooth. He likes to draw trippy patterns and weirdo creatures. Available in prints, patches, stickers, pins, totes and cards.

We’ve just added part of his haul of wonders to our site, so check them out here, and more will surely be added over the next couple of weeks.

Are you a local maker and/or artist with crafts & art to sell? Get in touch via our contact form or send me an email: info@snschorlton.uk

Treat Yourself Tuesdays – We’re Back, Chorlton!

HI EVERYONE

First things first – thank you for your patience with us over January. We were very poorly and therefore the shop’s Christmas hibernation lasted about 3 weeks longer than planned. Anyway, we’re back now and really looking forward to our new regular 2020 event…

Due to the huge success of our last event at The Chorlton Tap, we are now ver excited to announce that we will now be there every month for Treat Yourself Tuesdays, where a number of our favourite products from Ohh Deer, Pink Pig and more will be hugely reduced. That way, you can treat yourself to a little pick me up and a brew for less than a fiver!

Anyway keep your eyes peeled on the site for some new additions to our lovely range – in particular the haberdashery – and we look forward to seeing you on the 4th.

Adios!
