Hey! Did you know there was a store dedicated to the origins and love of pencils? They even have an incredibly smart and whimsical Pencil Village set up for the holidays! ✏✏✏ 🎄🎄🎄
Owner Caroline Weaver, amateur pencil collector and lifelong pencil lover and @ny_now one of the 10 to Watch, founded @cwpencilenterprise online shop in 2014 and her NYC Orchard Street store was opened shortly after in March 2015. Caroline and team, Max seen here, do an amazing job of digging up the stories and origins of these objects and make them accessible to those who appreciate them for their functionality, beauty and history. 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, they want to make sure that you can have any pencil your heart, hand, or collection desires.
And after almost six years of exclusively selling graphite, CW Pencil Enterprise is soon to become a full-service office supply shop! Caroline will be able to support her community in a greater manner as she’s had many neighbors over the years come in asking for things that they don’t sell like staplers, scissors, hole punchers, various kinds of tapes, brass fasteners. There will also be sustainably sourced goods as well for the first time, PENS! But only ones that are easily refillable
