Day 4 of 31 Days of LOCAL Holiday Shopping: Stationary

Today, I was thinking that this year I am really going to start working on my holiday cards early, no more procrastinating for this lady! Then, I became a little sad, because it made me realize that this year, I can't visit my favorite stationary shop in the entire world, in my old neighborhood in Chicago, Lakeview East. So I decided that today I would feature this shop, and even though it's not local to Tampa Bay followers, my Chicago friends will enjoy this one. And if you ever get a chance to visit Chicago, you must stop by this amazing little shop! (Also, Tampa friends, if you have a great local stationary shop to recommend, please do!)

So enough with the small talk, let me introduce you to the lovely little shop Inkling. My heart just fluttered a bit as I reminisced walking down Broadway past her always cheery and inviting window displays.

Inkling, has really great, truly unique stationary and gifts. Chances are, if you received a card during my years in Chicago, it was probably from this shop...

I mentioned unique gifts right? It gets better, a large percentage of their store is either handmade/local artists or vintage!

I hope this post leaves you feeling inspired and ready to send out some fun Christmas stationary! Next time your in Chicago, put this shop on your list, you won't regret it. And Inkling, as for me and you, I'll see you next time I am up, I will be the girl who camps out for a few hours. ;)
