The Cozy Charm of Stationery Stores: Tips for Finding the Perfect Planner Online or In-Store

There's something special about visiting a cozy stationery store - the shelves lined with pens, pencils, and paper in all different colors and textures, the smell of freshly printed pages and new notebooks, the feel of a smooth pen gliding across the page. Whether you're in need of a new planner or just want to browse and see what's new in the world of stationery, there's nothing quite like the experience of walking into a store that's dedicated to all things office supplies.

If you're looking for a stationery store near you, there are a few different options you can try. One of the easiest is to do a quick search online. Just type in "stationery store near me" and you'll likely find a few options in your local area. You can also try checking out a big box store, as they often have a wide selection of office supplies and planners, but we recommend checking out a specialty store that focuses specifically on stationery. These stores are often smaller, but they often have a more curated selection and can be a great place to find unique or hard-to-find items. We always love checking out stationery stores when we're traveling, and are often guilty of procuring several items that catch our eyes. In Vancouver, there are several stores you can check out like Buchan's and Paper-Ya @ Granville Island. 

While the experience of visiting a physical stationery store can be wonderful, it's not always possible or practical. That's where online brands like Hemlock & Oak come in. As an primarily online brand, we offer a wide range of planner options to suit all different types of needs and preferences. And just like in a physical stationery store, you can check out all of our layouts for free ahead of time - just head over to our downloads section. This way, you can try out a few different options and see which one works best for you before committing to a purchase.

Happy planning!
