Have you even been excited about stationary before? Well neither have I really, but I guess this is as close as it can get. I like the fact that village stationers has so much variety, so much choice. You can be looking for one thing and you can find that same thing in different makers or just something thats completly different thats even better. They also sell stuffed animals and different activity books. They have cards for all occasions. They have giftwrap paper and things like that before different holidays. I dont really get their staff,s ometimes they are nice and really helpful, but aty others you dont really want to bug them.
