what's in the stationery selection box
Everything that we received in our The Stationery Selection Box. We love how beautiful all of the items look together!


So what is all this stuff?


Our box inserts


Midori Pulp Storage Pencil Case
midori pulp storage pencil case
$6.80
Made of "Pasco" which is a paper made from a mixture of pulp and recycled paper this very minimalist pencil case is quite chic. Love the gray green color and the two button closures!

Because of it's flat rectangular shape you can tuck it away places you can't with other pencil case styles!


Ro-biki Notebook in Cross Grid
ro-biki notebook in crossgrid
$4.50
This notebook has a cross grid ruled page great for graphing. We love the muted beige color and the fact that it easily fits in your back pocket!

This notebook is a great quality - very nice!


Classiky Number Seals
$7
These two sheets of number seals from Classiky in a cool military issue green go great with the other items in this month's box. Not so much a sticker as they are stamps these can be used for labeling and organization!


Match Kit Kat
We've been wanting to try one of these for FOREVER - finally!

It was... so good! Tastes lightly of the green tea but more creamy than anything. 


Arch Foam Eraser
$2
What good is all your new stationery without an eraser? Made from plastic foam this eraser uses minimal pressure and makes very little mess!


Classiky Letterpress Memo Cards
classiky letterpress memo cards
$3.47
These gorgeous memo cards have a blue floral design that borders a thick cream colored cardstock. 50 included in this pack are great for jotting a note or for invitations!

So pretty!


Uni-ball Signo Pen 
uniball signo pen
$2.50
Not only does this go perfectly with the rest of the items in this month's box this gel pen writes in a fine and beautiful script! Works perfectly with both the pencil case and the number seals!


Midori Brass Pencil
midori brass pencil
$14.50
Our FAVORITE item included in this months box is this brass pencil. It sort of reminds us of the chalk holders they used to use back in the old days in school? Amirite?!

It opens up to reveal a small pencil inside 

And then you tuck that piece back inside the brass tube and voila! Brass pencil time!


Midori Fusen Sticky Notes
midori fusen sticky notes
$6
This little booklet opens up to reveal a stack of sticky notes that will definitely come in handy!

Love that these are simple and can be used for so many different purposes!


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Stationery Selection Subscription Box is a great way to get a fun assortment of Japanese stationery products each month. We love the way the items look together and work in coordination with each other. The presentation is awesome. Everything is packaged well and arrives perfectly. The quality is outstanding - all high quality brands that aren't readily available in the US! And curation is wonderful. Everything looks great singularly but even better together. We really enjoyed this month's box and think it's an amazing collection of items.

This box costs $34.95 and for that we received over $49 in items which is an awesome deal!
