Hamilton Haunts: Quills

Wednesday 5 August 2015

The Paper Trail Diary explores books, zines, crafts, and letter writing, so it's an obvious choice to be among my favourite blogs. When Jessica, the awesomeness behind The Paper Trail Diary, announced she was looking for people to highlight stationery stores around the world, I jumped on the opportunity to sing the praises of one of my favourite haunts — Quills on Locke Street.

Here's the first paragraph of my post, but to read it in its entirety, visit The Paper Trail Diary, and while you're at it, get in touch with her to give your own virtual tour of a favourite stationery store.
On the first Thursday of every month, a bright and open loft space that overlooks Hamilton’s trendy Locke Street becomes alive with the sound of typewriters. For the past few months, Quills, a stationery shop that specializes in far more than paper, has hosted the Locke Street Lettering Society, an evening that encourages people to toss aside their cell phones and write letters instead. Quills supplies not only the vintage typewriters, ink and pens, but even the envelopes and stamps, too.
It's hard not to get shutter happy at Quills, so here are a few photos that appeared on The Paper Trail Diary and a few that didn't.

  1. Great effort for article....Vintage Royal KHM Typewriter. Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire. This typewriter has been in our house for as long as I can remember but i can never remember anyone using it. It has been stored under the stairs gathering dust. see more
