Paperchase was my favourite shop for such a long time so, even with their recent problematic era, it’s still sad to hear that they will be closing this Friday. Everything is at least 30% off online if you want to have a last shopping spree.
They’ve still been creating some cute collections lately including Busy Bees, Cattitude, The Giggles and Unicorn Daydream, plus there’s lots of Valentine’s and Mother’s Day cards, wrap and gifts.
The stationery categories are well worth a browse too, with big name pen brands like Posca, FriXion and Sharpie, plus tons of cute planners, stickers, washi tape and more.
While the online shop (UK shipping only) closes at midnight on Friday, stores will still be open for a little while longer and will probably have massive discounts.
Of course, our thoughts are with all the staff losing their jobs and the artists who created so many lovely things over the years. If you’re an artist with your own shop who’s been affected personally by the closures do submit your site for a feature.
