Shopping Shibuya

Steeped in the atmosphere of a bygone era, Postalco is proof that good taste never goes out of style. This classy stationery and accessory shop started life in Brooklyn in 2000 and did a lengthy stint in Kyobashi before relocating to its current home in Shibuya at the end of 2012. If you still prefer paper to iPads, you're probably going to appreciate their fabric and calfskin legal envelopes, notebooks with starch-pressed cotton covers, and travel bags that are sturdy enough to carry a stack of hardbacks.

This beautiful little shop is a little hard to find. The first floor is a used books store, and you can take the stairs or elevator up. Among the wallets and envelopes that were out on display, there were mockups of different international currencies and blank plastic cards, so you could test to see how a full wallet would feel. They also had samples of 2 year old and 4 year old wallets, so you could see how the material ages with time.
