University Stationery on E. 12th Street and University Place is another great old-fashioned stationery story with what looks like miles and miles of notebooks, pads, and journals. It's been around for decades, serving the New York University community. So it stocks quite a lot of pens and paper, as well as a great supply of fine pens kept on the right side of the store (which is quite small). On the left side of the store is the paper, about 45 to 50 feet of shelves worth of paper but only a few brands. The first half of the store is loaded with Clairefontaine and Rhodia. I've seen some Clairefontaine notebooks there that I haven't seen anywhere else, a quite unusual occurrence (such as the flowered notebook on the second shelf to the left in this picture).
Then comes some miscellaneous office supplies, which leads to about 25 feet of shelves filled with Miquelrius notepads: four-colored notebooks, one subject notebooks, three subject notebooks, large, small, medium, paper covers, poly covers, solid and plaid covers. I didn't know Miquelrius made this many notebooks! The upper areas of the wall carry various office supplies, planners, and other stationery supplies. The owner of the store was very helpful when I was looking for a Lamy Al-Star converter; he had plenty for the Safari but none for the Al-Star, but he called his warehouse and then sent his son for it. Took about 15 minutes, which unfortunately gave me more time to find a few more things I hadn't seen before to add to my purchase. Definitely another place you could spend lots of time (and $).
