This time of year is always bittersweet. After months of sunshine and carefree fun, there’s one thing that helps ease the pain of saying goodbye to summer… stationery! Suddenly three magical little words (back to school) usher in aisle after aisle of pens, pencils, notebooks, journals and all manner of paper goodness.
You should know that writing utensils and paper products are my biggest vice. So, while others are dealing with Seasonal Affective Disorder right about now, I’m struggling with my own S.A.D. – Stationery Addiction Dilemma! Enter the Seattle-based Rad & Hungry, offering up limited-edition office supplies locally sourced from around the world.
When I stumbled onto their site, I felt like we were long-lost friends. I also realized I had finally found a treatment plan for my Stationary Addiction Disorder in the form of The Something Mighty (STMT) Collection.
STMT is basically a monthly series of limited-edition subscription boxes of really cool, lo-fi office supplies. Each kit is locally sourced from around the world ranging from a STMT X Croatia Kit, STMT X Germany Kit and STMT X USA Kit, to booster packs from Korea and Brazil.
I seriously can’t even decide what I want to order first. One major contender is the Jorge Clip, a little gem they found at the Ipanema Sunday market in Brazil, made by, you guessed it, a local artisan named Jorge! It acts as a jumbo paperclip, key ring, belt hook, bookmark and even as a cool way to hang art on the wall, like pictured below.
