This haven for stationery lovers still carries one of the best, though pricey, collections of decorative paper, boxed cards and pens in the city. Scan the wall of specialty styles for squares of Japanese washi paper printed with kimono florals, handcrafted lace-like sheets and rectangles of Thai banana paper before winding your way through the 20 departments dedicated to envelopes, wax seal stamps and bone folders. If you’re planning a bridal or baby shower, don’t miss the custom printing section’s massive binders of designs, much more thrilling to receive than an Evite.
