One one of my free weekend days*, I set out to go paper shopping in Sydney’s city center. Being a fan of Simple Aussie Girls, I was too excited.
My favorite by far was kikki.K, which has a ton of locations in Australia. I also stopped in Typo, Eckersley’s, the paper/supply area of Dymock’s, and even a cafe that doubled as a stationary store.
A nasty rain storm cut my trip short after the cafe stop. I was very sad that I didn’t have time to get to scrapbook-specific stores, but they were a bit too far for me to get to.
The last photo is my little haul from the shops. I had to be careful and get things that would fit in my carry on or else I would have bought everything in the stores! I tried very hard to not buy stationary sets because I have too many, but I got some cool envelopes to go with my collection of envelope-less cards. Major win!
*You thought I dragged Mr. P paper shopping, didn’t you? Right. He was only with me for part of the trip, and this is one of the things I indulged in on my own.
I love all of the heart papers in the first shot!
They’re actually journals, notebooks and cards mostly! I would have taken them all home if they were papers!
Welcome home. Looks like some fun shopping. What a pretty store. I have been seeing a ton of dark blue and rosey pink combos lately and it looks to be popular on the other side of the world too! Have fun with your new goodies. 🙂
Interesting! Neat to see how the trends spread.
