Sourcing their expansive assortment of stationery, desk paraphernalia, office must-haves and of course, school supplies from all over the world, the buying team at U.K. based Present & Correct have hit the nail on the head with everything I love about back to school shopping. A far cry from the Trapper Keepers and the technicolor mess of Lisa Frank stationery from my youth, the virtual shelves at P&C are stocked with elegantly unique alternatives to mundane staplers and memo pads. Not to mention a plethora of standout vintage finds to covet. For me, the mixed eraser collection – gathered from Germany, U.S, Czech Republic and the U.K – struck a cord (that’s right, I was the kid in middle-school with the eraser collection). For those in need of help transitioning into a new office, cubicle or desk there’s the Office In A Jar – complete with a pencil, notebook, ruler and other necessities to facilitate maximum productivity.
