Some days I feel like dropping everything and opening a pencil shop! Ok, well actually that daydream only happened today when I stumbled across this gorgeous pencil shop - they just sell pencils. It's so simple and beautiful as a business idea.
I'm not sure a pencil shop would make lots of money in a seaside town in North Wales - but I would be very happy indeed to be surrounded by beautiful pencils... maybe I should just have pots of pencils in my office. I might sell notepads too (or would that spoil it!)
This shop is CW Pencils run by Caroline Weaver and it's stunning! - The shop is in New York (and online). I hope Caroline makes millions selling these luxury pencils - what a great idea that really appeals to creative people from all walks of life.
"CW Pencil Enterprise of New York City was founded in November 2014 by Caroline Weaver, amateur pencil collector but lifelong pencil lover. What we're trying to do is dig up the stories and origins of these objects and make them accessible to those who appreciate them for their functionality, beauty and history as much as we do. As simple as it may be, the pencil is something which despite advances in technology will never become obsolete. Whatever you may use them for, we want to make sure that you can have any pencil your heart, hand, or collection desires."
