Papelito – Paper goods, paper love

Papelito is the place I go when I need a little gift for someone – and a card that goes with the gift. The choice ranks from postcards and notebooks, to masks, rubber stamps, old school toys and all kinds of beautiful cases and boxes.

Inside, Papelito is so colorful, it always makes me happy, no matter how grey the weather outside. Papelito is one of those places where you think “I’ll just go and take a quick look” and you end up leaving an hour later. That’s at least how long it takes to discover all the little things they have, though the shop is not that big. Those little things are crammed in every corner, so be careful to not tear them down with your bag…or butt. You might find the shop somewhat confusing at first sight, but taking a closer look, you will fall in love with all the details.

For me, Papelito is also a very inspiring place with many DYI items like masking tape and all kinds of printed papers. As someone who loves to write To-Do-lists, they have a great choice of the prettiest notebooks that will make writing and working through those lists so much more fun. And you can make your inner child happy with their 1960s toys, kaleidoscopes and paper masks.
