We have a Daiso here in San Francisco which is basically a Japanese dollar store. I have written a few times in my blog on how much I LOVE to fill shopping baskets with all the wonderful little inventions and creative doodads, but my guilt about the environment usually forces me to put most of it back. :)

I love organizational supplies and anything adorable. Completely understand your gravitation to add the elephants to your office supplies!

And I keep thinking to myself – but- but- how am I going to buy pens/notepads/tape/clippies/magnets if I can’t go to the stationary store? Thanks for the link!

What are you stocking up on for your return to the States?

I’m trying to limit the amount of stationery my 6 year old has but I’m a closet addict myself. I hope that site doesn’t ship to where I live!

I especially love the animal clips and very interested in the dustless chalk (I hate the chalk dust in the kid’s easel tray – totally bugs me! Leave it to the Japanese designers!!!

I bought these paperclips as part of a Christmas gift for a friend. They also have animals, weather, etc.

I have a daughter who loves anything to do with dogs. I picked up the dog paper clips similar to the ones you listed above and the dog binder clips. I also got the chalk you mentioned and the the Stabilo erasable marker pens.

Thank you for the recommendations.

For Easter, yes, I am already thinking about it, I like to give my kids new art supplies. I will have to check out the products above and see what I can do.

While not quite desk supplies, I did stumble upon Keri Smith’s journals. I bought several of them for my children and am trying to space them out as I want to give them all to them now! :) I think anything I can find that will get my kids to draw, write and create is worth it.

I still recall my desk mate in the 4th grade. She has a beautiful pencil case full of lovely pencils. Oh, how I envied her. I made sure my children had a similar stash. I don’t think they appreciate them quite like I do but they bring back memories for sure.

Those paper clips are wicked awesome.

I bought myself some Japanese brass paperclips last year. I haven’t been able to look at a regular paperclip the same way since.

I love the multi-surface crayons and dustless chalk – what great finds! My daughter is too young for them but I’ll certainly bookmark them for the future.

Thanks Gabrielle!
